Welcome to the 117th Congress: 2A Rights beneath assault

The 117th Congress has begun busily filing expenses. none of the text is accessible yet, but the invoice titles are informative. This what I’ve discovered so far. All of these are in the residence. As of this writing nothing at once affecting second amendment rights appears to had been filed within the Senate.

H.R.225 – To amend chapter forty four of title 18, united states Code, to more comprehensively address the interstate transportation of firearms or ammunition.

This was filed by using Republican Rep. Griffin [VA-9], so I’m hoping it’s a repair for the safe passage provisions of FOPA.

H.R.194 – To require the Inspector well-known, department of Justice, to submit a report to the Congress on the number of firearm transaction denials issued by way of the national immediate criminal historical past check gadget which are observed the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives for investigation, the variety of prosecutions on account of such investigations, and the number of firearms recovered through the Bureau in instances in which this type of denial became issued after the firearm turned into transferred.

That sounds innocuous, but one never knows.

H.R.167 – To limit the switch of a firearm at a gun show through someone who isn’t a federally licensed firearms broker.

Ah, the “gun show loophole” again.

H.R.135 – To require the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation to document to the Congress semiannually on the number of firearms transfers as a result of the failure to comprehensive a heritage investigate within three business days, and the processes adopted after it is found out that a firearm transfer has been made to a transferee who’s ineligible to acquire a firearm.

looks duplicative, what with H.R. 194.

H.R.130 – To require the safe storage of firearms and ammunition, and to require the investigation of stories of unsuitable storage of firearms or ammunition.

The investigation requirement looks to chiefly nasty, as it appears to chuck likely trigger right out the window.

H.R.127 – To give for the licensing of firearm and ammunition possession and the registration of firearms, and to prohibit the possession of definite ammunition.

Given the looming Dem control of condominium, Senate, and White apartment, and their proven lack of care for what individuals consider, I strongly suspect this will flow. i ponder in the event that they asked cops how they suppose about risking existence and limb to enforce it.

H.R.a hundred twenty five – To amend title 18, u.s. Code, to deliver for a 7-day waiting period before a semiautomatic firearm, a silencer, armor piercing ammunition, or a large capacity ammunition journal could be transferred.

hello! possibly they’ll reduce the waiting length for silencers to seven days. alas, I’m pondering this further wait would come after the ~9-month registration wait.

H.R.121 – To provide for the hiring of 200 extra Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents and investigators to implement gun legal guidelines.

pleasure. Like we need more kitty-stompers.

H.R.95 – To amend the internal earnings Code of 1986 to get rid of silencers from the definition of firearms, and for other purposes.

alas, with a purpose to under no circumstances flow. if you want to on no account make it out of committee.

H.R.60 – To give protection to the correct of law-abiding citizens to move knives interstate, even if a patchwork of native and State prohibitions, and to repeal Federal provisions regarding switchblade knives which burden residents.

It’s now not guns, nonetheless it is 2A. All things regarded, I’d provide this a 50:50 chance.

H.R.38 – To amend title 18, u.s. Code, to give a way during which nonresidents of a State whose residents can also carry concealed firearms may additionally also do so in the State.

country wide reciprocity. Snowball, meet Hell.

H.R.30 – To increase public safeguard via punishing and deterring firearms trafficking.

I’d sure like to see the textual content. Is Rush [D-IL-1] in reality unaware that trafficking is already unlawful?

right here’s one which isn’t notably 2A-related, however it did capture my eye. It’s from DC Rep. Norton [D-DC], so I predict it’s a reproduction of her 116th Congress invoice. I’ve included this right here as a result of I consider all and sundry can see that admitting DC as a state would permanently lock in Democrat manage of the nation, with the becoming risk to firearm rights:

H.R.fifty one – To supply for the admission of the State of Washington, D.C. into the Union.

Ms. Norton looks to be unaware that the District’s repute is managed by the charter. final session, it became pointless because it didn’t consist of a Constitutional amendment. This time round, it might turn up since we’ve considered that there fairly a good deal isn’t a charter anymore.

I’d desire you a happy New yr, but this seems like December 38, 2020.
