Democrats have been gunning for your Second Amendment for decades.
They believe that only the government should be allowed to own guns.
And your Second Amendment rights are doomed if Democrats pass this new horrifying bill.
There is no Amendment to the U.S. Constitution clearer than the Second Amendment.
It clearly says that the “right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”
But Democrats can’t seem to understand that simple point, and have spent decades trying to rip guns away from law-abiding citizens.
One of the most notorious gun-grabbers in Congress is Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee (TX).
She has been pushing for radical gun control for many years, while at the same time proving she knows nothing about the guns she wants to ban.
Jackson Lee once laughably claimed that an AR-15 rifle “is as heavy as 10 boxes that you might be moving,” before falsely claiming that it utilizes a “.50 caliber bullet.”
Despite her complete ignorance, she is now pushing a bill that would turn anybody who owns that gun into a felon overnight.
Her new bill, titled the “Sabika Sheikh Firearm Licensing and Registration Act” would make it a crime to possess a firearm or ammunition without obtaining a new license.
Along with the new licensing, it would force gun owners to pay for insurance on every firearm they own, and ban ammunition of .50 caliber or greater for civilian ownership.
Obtaining this new license of course will feature steep requirements, and will be overseen by the U.S. Attorney General.
Gun owners would be forced to complete a government training course, have a clear record, and register every gun they own with the federal government.
And this is just the start of the requirements.
Anything her bill defines as a “military-style weapon,” which includes most semi-automatic rifles and handguns, would require an additional license.
On top of this, anybody who has even been hospitalized due to a mental illness, drug or alcohol abuse, homicidal or suicidal thoughts, or a brain disease would be barred from firearm ownership for life.
It would also require a psychological evaluation process that takes into account the psychological condition of relatives, current and former spouses, as well as anybody defined as an “associate.”
The bill is essentially set up so virtually anybody could be denied firearm ownership under their strict requirements, and any attempt to appeal would be fruitless if a far-left Attorney General is in power.
With Democrats in control of the House, Senate, and Presidency, this bill has a strong chance of passage if gun owners don’t make their voices heard.
