If you’re wondering what goodies the anti-2A Dems have in store for gun owners this year, look no further than Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee’s “H.R. 127 Sabika Sheikh Firearm Licensing and Registration Act.

(The full text of the bill is embedded below for your convenience.)

In a nutshell, it would require the Attorney General, via the ATF, to “establish a system for licensing the possession of firearms or ammunition in the United States, and for the registration with the Bureau of each firearm present in the United States.”

Universal registration and licensing, people! If that sounds bad at first blush, trust me, it only gets worse once you check out the details.

National Registry

Let’s start with the national registry that will include every single gun in America. Well, all the guns in the hands of those willing to follow the law. Violent criminals, those responsible for the vast majority of gun murders and shootings, aren’t going to opt-in to the database. We know this because they already disobey the hundreds, if not thousands, of gun laws on the books.

Anyways, per the bill, each responsible gun owner would have to submit to Big Brother “the make, model, and serial number of the firearm, the identity of the owner of the firearm, the date the firearm was acquired by the owner, and where the firearm is or will be stored,” plus a notice disclosing the name or names of any individual(s) one plans on loaning it to and approximately how long it will be in his or her possession.

Failure to do so results in serious jail time and a hefty fine, we’re talking no less than 15 years in prison and up to $150,000!

Sheila Jackson Lee back in 2019 talking to the press about another gun-control bill banning ammunition that is “.50-caliber or greater.” It’s evident in the interview that she has no idea what she’s talking about.

Licensing System

But before one can own a gun or possess ammo, he or she needs to obtain a license. In order to qualify for a license, one must: be 21 years old, pass a background check, undergo an extensive psychological examination, receive 8 hours of gun safety training, and purchase liability insurance at a cost of $800 per year.

It’s hard to discern what’s worse, that with a stroke of a pen adults under 21 lose their right to keep and bear arms because they do not meet the arbitrary age requirement, that prospective applicants need to see a government-approved shrink before they can own a gun, or that applicants need to pay the Attorney General $800 per year for insurance!

Insanity! Again, failure to comply would result in at least 15 years behind bars and a fine of up to $150,000!

To top things off the “Sabika Sheikh Firearm Licensing and Registration Act” also bans the possession of magazines that hold more than 10 rounds of ammo and “ammunition that is 0.50 caliber or greater.”

What Are Its Chances?

Skeptics reading this will likely argue that there’s no way this bill will see the light of day. That it will be DOA — dead. on. arrival.


Or maybe, this is a sign of what’s coming down the pike. As GunsAmerica reported earlier this week, Bloomberg-funded gun-control organizations are demanding action within the first 100 days of the Biden administration.

Given that Bloomberg has spent hundreds of millions of dollars backing Democrats during the 2020 election cycle, including President Biden, on the promise that they’d be “gun sense” candidates while holding office, it’s safe to assume that restricting 2A rights will be a top priority.

Right now, the lowest hanging fruit is universal background checks, which would criminalize private sales and transfers. As many of us know, including those in government, universal background checks are an entirely useless endeavor without a national registry.

To quote an Obama-era National Institute of Justice Deputy Director (emphasis added), the effectiveness of universal background checks depends on the “ability to reduce straw purchasing, requiring gun registration and an easy gun transfer process.”

The way this might play out is a one-two punch. First, Dems in the House and Senate pass universal background checks. Once that’s in place and there’s zero effect on crime rates, the anti-gun lobby will push for Ms. Jackson Lee’s registration and licensing mandate.

They’ll call it the “registration loophole” or the “licensing loophole” and argue that because we need a license and insurance to drive a car, and we have to register our cars, it’s only “common sense” that we treat firearms in the same manner.

No, it’s not a new argument, not at all. But to the unwashed masses who blithely jumped on the universal background check bandwagon, it’ll be framed as the next logical step to “protecting our children from the gun violence epidemic.”

Remember, public support for universal background checks currently sits above 90 percent. If the anti-gun lobby with its Billionaire backer Michael Bloomberg can convince an overwhelming majority of people that they need to visit an FFL and pay a transfer fee every time they want to lend or sell a gun to a hunting buddy or lifelong neighbor or extended family member, then they can probably dupe a wide swath of voters into believing that furnishing Big Brother with a gun owners list is in the best interest of “public safety.”

Our founding fathers must be rolling over in their graves.

    This Missed Jackson is nothing but a good little COMMUNIST PROPAGANDIST who HATES any American who appreciates their RIGHTS and FREEDOMS!!!!!!!!

  • Gunny8541 February 11, 2021, 6:03 pm

    Hate to burst your bubble. But my 1941 Stuart has an 37mm cannon. So yes, you can have a tank and cannon. Its considered a destructive device

  • Alfred E. Newman February 2, 2021, 6:10 am

    I am going to try to inject some practical wisdom into all these comments, that may be of some help to those worried. First….clickbait articles like this are designed to arouse you into posting your opinions- so that somewhere, someone can put your name into a database to be tracked. Your opinions, and any other things you post here, ARE BEING KEPT, somewhere, by someone, for the purpose of “finding you”, down the road.
    Next….Prior to the passage of the Gun Control Act of 1968, how many guns changed hands? How many were thrown away by the relatives of their dead owners? How many were “stolen” by cops from property rooms, and kept? How many changed hands between people, with no records kept of who bought what and when? And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. The question here is, will the Government be ABLE to spend the money it will take, to expand the bureaucracy enough to TRACK DOWN every gun in this country- assuming it is even possible to do, which I don’t think it is? And…that only covers guns sold and traded prior to 1968, imagine the number of guns that have been bought and sold since then…..
    Next…Criminals, “illegal” transactions, and “Ghost Guns”, printed on 3-D printers. Uh, huh, yea; right- they are gonna track those……it is to laugh.
    Next….There is a reason the Founders did not give police powers to the Judicial Branch of our Government. Their decisions are solely dependent on the WILL OF THE PEOPLE to obey them, from a MORAL STANDPOINT. The Legislative branch can pass all the laws they want to, but if WE, THE PEOPLE don’t obey them…what good are they? Brown V. Board abolished Segregation in Public Schools in 1954- and school systems all over America immediately started going around it by way of creating Charter Schools, Private Academies, Religious Institutions, and so on. The decision was moral at its’ base, but the will of the PEOPLE was something else. And when the Courts ruled that even those schools had to be integrated, people started using TUITION to exclude children from them. If you ain’t got the money, you cannot get into the game!
    Next….Posting how many guns you have, “Molon Labe”, “Cold Dead Hands”, and all the other catchphrases only serves to “out” your opinions. SHUT,..THE.,…HELL….UP!! If you know the “Devil” is after you; why are you telling him where you’re at? Is your need to express your opinion, or your need to have said opinion validated, that important to you, that you will tell the whole world what you have, where you are, what you plan? The Bible, and most other religious writings, all say that, “you do it to yourself!”. It has long been time for the American people to SHUT….THE….HELL….UP! “Social Media” is tracking you. Censoring you. Influencing you. Selling you out to those who would see you imprisoned for your beliefs. Is your need for emotional validation so great that you will sell yourselves out on SOCIAL MEDIA- for the sake of “having your opinion heard”?
    Next…People such as Congresswoman Lee have no sense. You know this. The people that elected her know this. When you drink a beer, do you worry about the Dead Yeast left in it? The beer serves a purpose to you. She serves a purpose to those who voted for her. She serves a purpose to those who did not vote for her. Raising children 101: often, when your kids do or say something that you don’t agree with, ignoring them is a very effective way to get them to stop doing or saying it.
    Lastly….Every single one of the problems we face in this country were caused by us raising our children without any concept of being deprived of things. We were so desperate to not have them suffer what we did, we forgot that “Suffering is good for the soul.”, and builds CHARACTER. We all “coted” for Joe Biden and his ilk, and created the liberalism we face, because we refused (mostly; GOD always has a core of his children who know better!) to allow our children to GO WITHOUT! Our generation had to WORK for what we have, do without; be deprived. We’ve been hungry unto death. We know what it means to open the fridge, and find nothing but a Half-Gallon of sour milk. our children never had to do that. We also, in our FEAR, kept them secure and insulated. They never went to the playground, to learn how to either whip ass, or get their ass whipped. They were never properly socialized, with the result that they have NO CLUE how to deal with, “the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune!”
    When they come home, telling you that their teacher is mean to them, we must start telling them, “Too Bad! i send you to school to LEARN- NOT to PLAY! It is my job to deal with the teacher, not yours!” “The teacher whipped me! Well, next time, BEHAVE- and you won’t get whipped!” Self-control, restraint, and propriety MUST come back; otherwise, we’re all doomed to suffer the exact crisis we face now- Emotional insecurities, fears, doing what we WANT to, instead of what we HAVE to, and doing things because we CAn, and not because we SHOULD! Wake up, folks…..

  • JR February 1, 2021, 3:38 pm

    You are required to pass a State/Federal background check before you can buy a gun now. Why is another background check required? If you have a concealed weapon permit, you go through another background check every renewal. We do not need another background check on top of these.

    They are coming. Soon. Decide now how you are going to deal with it.

    I will not submit to being licensed to exercise a Constitutional right, forced to register my firearms so the government can come and take them at their whim and pay the government exorbitant amounts of money to exercise that Constitutional right. I will become a criminal first. After all in Democratic circles, criminals are a favored and protected group anyways.

  • michael January 31, 2021, 10:48 am

    LIBERTY DIED 1-6-21 Welcome to 2021. The democrats have been calling for a civil war (revolution) whatever you wish to call it. Just listen to the rhetoric they push on their propaganda (media) channels. They are in the process of convincing the world that we are evil white supremacist with guns. No matter your pigmentation if you supported USA first. Why do you think they need the military to protect them ? If they had nothing to fear they would not need them. They know they are up to NO good. They are making themselves untouchable so they think. Will they have the audacity to shoot innocent Americans when they come knocking on the door again ?

  • gandolf the Whte January 30, 2021, 7:16 pm

    Federal gun registration has already been declared illegal long ago.

    Is it now time for gun owners to start suing those who wish to cause infringement of the 2nd Amendment for conspiracy to deny Constitutional rights?

    • Kaiser January 30, 2021, 7:16 pm

      I agree that we sue our politicians, however, they’ve put in a neat little clause that they can’t be sued for conducting government business.

    • Eric February 2, 2021, 7:09 am

      Then they should be tried for treason against the country. If found guilty, removed from government, removed physically from the country, and that after a prison sentence, for attempting to dismantle the constitution.

    Guys… you dont get it. you must all be older than me and/ or have no kids. I’m ex LE 52 yo DINK. You keep quoting the constitution… that’s considered obsolete, doesn’t fit the agenda and didn’t represent slaves. Like the great monuments they toppled, so represents their respect for and value of the Constitution

  • Jeff January 29, 2021, 10:19 pm

    Gentlemen, I enjoyed reading some of your comments. Our first problem is one which the Founders knew about: The Tyranny of the Majority. They never intended that every citizen should have the right to vote. They expected educated businessmen, land owners, farmers, people who owned something… to be voters. They anticipated that giving everybody the right to vote would produce a country run by the political machines from cities with the largest populations and that the majority of these inner city populations would be the less educated and most easily controlled by the local political machine.

    There have been many efforts in the past to establish minimal parameters to obtain the right to vote, but all attempts have been turned down (some for good reason, others just to ensure that the votes could be controlled. For example, one of the Voting Rights Bills which was turned down would have only required the potential voter to be literate, i.e., that the voter must be able to read the ballot! That was a fairly low threshold and there is only one reason that I can think of for that Bill to be rejected.

    I think that every potential voter should be able to correctly answer 6 out of 10 random questions taken from the test given to immigrants who wish to become citizens. This could be easily done on computers at each polling station. Easy Peesy, but obviously there is not a chance that it would pass Congress because, if it passed, the majority of our largest city voters could not pass this test, thus crushing the Democrat Political low level leaders from rounding up and paying off voters to check off the right boxes at the polls.

    The Constitution’s and voting laws of our crucial swing states were ignored or violated during the past election. Their Democrat majority State Supreme Courts refused to hear any complaints regarding voting fraud and the Federal Congress disregarded their own regulations regarding the procedures for reviewing and accepting Electoral College votes and just declared a winner,,,all is lost.

    Our own Representatives do not follow the legislative rules and procedures which they have sworn to obey. Do any of you really trust the leaders of ANY of our Federal Agencies or Departments anymore? Many of them have stood in Congressional Hearings and committed perjury. Good for them that they are exempt from prosecution! (Did you know that we have Federal Laws which permit our Government to spread dis-information and lies to the US population? This law was enacted following WW2.)

    Yes, some Representatives lodged objectives and they were ignored. Some are now establishing committees to investigate “what went wrong with the last election so it won’t happen again”, which is the usual B.S.

    If we had Representatives who actually did what they swore to do, they should have stood up and resigned their positions en’ masse.

    If the Republicans actually had the hard evidence of wide spread voting fraud and then just meekly gave up to the Democrats, they only represented that they want to keep their jobs and did not have a shred of self respect and honor. We don’t even have “honor among thieves” anymore.

    I would not have hired Biden for the position of a cashier at Walmart because I do not think he still has the mental capacity or ability required for that job…and the Democrat Party Leadership selected him as their choice for President? There is something going on behind the curtain in D.C.

    I am not sure who the puppet masters are, but we have been gradually giving up all of our rights: we no longer have any personal privacy as everything we do, say, purchase or view on the internet is being recorded. All telephone calls, land line and cell phone calls, are recorded, our computers and TV’s can be turned on remotely to watch and listen to us without any kind of notice or warrant.

    We can only see the “News” and entertainment which we are allowed to see. Freedom of Speech is gone and “Hate Speech” is a crime. Our President can enact laws without Congressional involvement. He can, as did previous Presidents, order assassinations both outside of the US and, unofficially, acknowledge them inside the US. I am not just referring to the people we have killed with multi-million dollar guided bombs, but up-close and personal murders. A really solid RICO case could be made against our government. Think about it. We are all at the mercy of Organized Criminal Organizations, Public Labor Unions and the Politicians who work with them.

    I think the only way to bring the country back is to organize and actually do a 70 Million Man March on DC. and demand that our government be restored to a legitimate body which actually does what it was organized to do. However, I do think the United States Experiment with Democracy is over and your children and grand children will not even read about the good parts of our history in their school text books. Sorry about that.

    Instead of everone talking the same old “what is it they don’t get” crap.
    We all need to find out what it takes legally to get these people stripped of title and removed before the next fraud election.

    If California can get rid of their Govener, then Texans can certainly recall and get rid of this old hide.

    Wyoming has allready started the recall process of getting rid of that blond closet tub cheney.

    I believe it was Colorado, might be wrong, that rid themselves of state officals after Magpul moved to Wyoming.

    They can all be removed, petition for recall and vote them out, bend’um over twice!!! at the same time.

    If there was fear of losing that fat pay check and cushy gov job, their bravada and fist shaking would only happen in the bathroom mirror.

    The time to start is now.

    Gun registration has nothing to do with this stupidity. It’s death by a thousand cuts. the democratic party has quietly slid toward attempting to legislate us to death with every piece of legislation they get past. One inch closer. It doesn’t matter what it is. One step on anything is a step closer to socialistic dominance and overturning the Constitution. They cannot be negotiated with on Constitutional matters. Just the arrogance makes me sick.

  • Ray A Rodway January 29, 2021, 5:34 pm

    Its the bill of rights not the bill of suggestions. A right is not something that is bestowed upon you by man. but rather given as a gift to you by the millennia of soldiers that paid for it with with their lives. Hold it dear to you.

  • Danny January 29, 2021, 5:32 pm

    I am going to tell you dumb bunny Democrats one thing!! If you want war, you are fixing to get it if you try to do anything against our 2nd Amendment Rights. The Constitution is our God given rights to Freedom because it was written/signed by God fearing men!! I can show you in God’s Word called the Bible which is all TRUTH (NO Lies), that God wanted all people (His included) to learn to protect themselves and have weapons to do so.

    Cain slew Abel with a rock/a club (Bible doesn’t say which); David slew Goliath with a slingshot and hit the giant in the forehead with a stone; and all types of primitive weapons like spears, bow and arrows, crossbows, blowguns with poison darts, swords, and knives can kill a man. I studied primitive weapons in the military and can make weapons to kill a person if I needed too. I don’t need a gun!

    If you do try to take away our guns it will be a bloodbath and you Democratic politicians will probably be the first to be taken out. I am a peaceful man/a God fearing man and wouldn’t kill anyone unless they try to hurt me or my family and forcibly try to take something from me that doesn’t belong to them. I fought for our FREEDOM and South Vietnam’s freedom during a war that was not liked here at home. It was a stinking political war! The USA, China, and Russia were all making money off of it. That’s the reason it went on for so long and killed a lot of good young American men.

    The media blew that war all out of portion and lied (like they are doing today) and made us Vietnam vets look like the bad guys “calling us “baby killers” when those so called babies could kill you quicker than an adult. We came home to no ticker tape parades, waves, or cheers but to an ungrateful Nation that spit on us, thrown rocks at, and called us names. I was hurt in my heart but at the same time I was happy to suffer in the name of my Lord & Savior Jesus Christ but NO MAN has suffered like He did. He was doing it for you and I to keep us all from winding up into an everlasting FIRE that will burn men, women, and children that rejected Him as Lord and Savior. There will be weeping and nashing of teeth in HELL and the Lost will suffer with every ungodly SINNER that walked this Earth. Only the Born-Again, washed in the blood of Jesus Christ, and received Him in their Heart (Not their Head) as Lord & Savior will get to see Heaven!!

    Every promise that God had His chosen men to write down what He said to be placed in His Holy Word, God has kept those promises!! His prophecies of the Bible are being fulfilled every day and the return of Jesus Christ to get His Bride (the Church (born-again)) is coming soon and people are too blinded to see the signs. Gabriel’s trumpet will blow to announce the Great Wedding and Jesus will split the Eastern sky in all of His Glory for the entire World to see Him in the sky!! We who are ready will meet Jesus in the clouds and will forever be with the Lord!! Those that remain will go through the Greatest Tribulation that no man has ever seen upon this Earth for Seven Years!! HELL was made by God for satan, his demons, and his followers. Jesus Christ, the only Begotten of God, willing came to lay down His life for the sins of the entire World to give men, women, and children an escape way from going to Hell!! He loved the World that much!! He knew there would be those that would reject Him but He still LOVES them anyway!! John 3:16 “For God so Loved the World that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but shall have Eternal Life!! AMEN AND AMEN Come quickly Sweet Jesus!!

    This clueless person came “hat in hand” to TEXAS from New York years ago looking for a job. Not just we, but our REPUBLIC, took a real hit when she and her handlers found an area where voters would cast ballots based on identity, not inherent qualifications, especially intelligence. She’s incredibly arrogant, and doesn’t accept that she’s an elected public servant. Of course this is a common problem among the establishment political class at all levels today. Just a “heads up” about Lee, and she’s not alone in D.C.. They count on ignorance and gullibility of their constituency to push their agenda of control over all AMERICANS.

    Here is all you need to know about Jackson, Being from Houston should tell you all you need to know. The left in Texas has a stranglehold on most of the major population centers. Even Austin the Capital of Texas is a liberal cesspool. Dallas isn’t any better. Please note the last sentence of the post below. What bullshit.


    Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee is an influential and forceful voice in Washington. She is serving her thirteenth term as a member of the United States House of Representatives. She represents the 18th Congressional District of Texas, centered in Houston, which is the energy capital of the world. Considered by many as the “Voice of Reason”, she is dedicated to upholding the Constitutional rights of all people.

  • Grant Stevens January 29, 2021, 3:11 pm

    Dear Sheila,

    Were you born stupid, or are you a self-made woman? What part of “shall not be infringed” do you not understand? Until the Second Amendment is repealed, it is the supreme law of the land. Before you took office, you swore an oath to that law, which you are now violating with your tyrannical bill that directly infringes upon the right of law-abiding American citizens to keep and bear arms. As far as I and other American patriots are concerned, you are an enemy of the Republic and should be immediately removed from office and tried for treason. Perhaps your comprehension of American History is as lacking as your allegiance to your oath of office, or you would know what happened the last time a tyrannical government came for the guns and ammunition of the American people. Molan labe!

  • Mike Petros January 29, 2021, 3:07 pm

    There is no need for registering a gun. They are provided that info every time you buy a gun and fill out that form 4473. It’s all there. My example: Long ago I purchased a S & W Pistol from a gun dealer. Years later I sold that pistol to another gun dealer. THEN many years later, I get a letter from the City of Beaumont California stating that they have my pistol ( the one I sold years before) and if I wanted to claim it I had to come there and get it. Ya, right. They know I once owned it even though I didn’t live in California. By the way, I explained to them I sold it and had a bill of sale and they could stick it !

  • dynastyeric2011 January 29, 2021, 3:03 pm

    I love this part.

    They’ll call it the “registration loophole” or the “licensing loophole” and argue that because we need a license and insurance to drive a car, and we have to register our cars, it’s only “common sense” that we treat firearms in the same manner.

    Does this mean that we can sue the auto manufactures when a moron kills someone with a car? I mean they are already talking about taking away the lawful protection from the gun manufactures?

    • Leonard Newberg January 29, 2021, 4:50 pm

      It has already been determined that violent felons and other prohibited persons are exempted from registration laws as it would violate their 5th amendment rights. thank you democrats. So this is aimed solely at law abiding citizens.

  • Mike K. January 29, 2021, 1:49 pm

    A quick story. My wife purchased a used Benelli M2 20ga. from a national chain store about 18 months ago. It did not appear to have a box, manuals, case, chokes etc. to go with the purchase and we never asked about any accessories because the tag said gun only. So after the purchase they taped a few boxes together, put the gun in and out door we went. Almost a full year goes by and we get a large delivery at our home over 2 hours away from the store. My wife is what did you buy – with an angry look and I said “nothing… recently.” So we open the box and low and behold it was the original factory case (the serial number sticker on the plastic case matched the gun) , manuals, chokes, even wrapping paper – everything for the M2 my wife bought a year earlier. We were pleasantly surprised but then the “Question” came to mind. If the store destroys the form ATF 4473 after 48 hours (I think). How the hell did they still know that WE had bought that gun and were to send the case and accessories? The answer is simple stores that sell guns keep records for how ever long, on who purchases what – Now is that not a “National Registration” by proxy? Any FFL dealers have any insight into this?

    • ConradCA January 29, 2021, 1:57 pm

      They must keep copies of these documents by federal law/regulation.

      There is nothing to prevent the business for keeping records of their customers.

    • John Long January 29, 2021, 2:22 pm

      FFL’s are required to keep 4473’s for 20 years

    • Danny Borne January 29, 2021, 3:07 pm

      FFL holder here. The completed 4473 has to be retained by the seller for a minimum of 20 years. That is required of all gun shops nation wide. The info from 4473 that was supplied to FBI/NICS for your wife’s background check has to be destroyed by FBI/NICS after 24 hours. That way there is no federal database or registry on what people are buying. Multiple handgun sales require a separate form which is kept by the feds.
      The 4473 is kept by the seller.

      • michael smith February 2, 2021, 4:40 pm

        Do you actually believe the feds don’t keep that info? I know for sure that WA. state does on pistols. After the CIA and FBI debacle during the Trump administration I don’t trust any of them.

Who knows how many republicans or democrats have been elected by this scam obviously going to the highest bidder or with the most communist ties. The line in the sand is when the government decides to take our 2A rights away. That’s when the brave have to form new militias to throw off such government. The 2A protects all the other amendments which the forefathers said came fro our creator and not government. It is a right that can never be removed just like the 1st. If ever removed America will not be American. Land of the free and home of the brave.

  • Easy Eddie January 29, 2021, 12:54 pm

    When Emperor Andrew 1st got the New York SAFE Act passed, a relative called me to say that she’d sold her Bushmaster back to their local sun store, and had registered their Ruger .22 rifle because it had a thumbhole stock, which made it require registration. (Not sure how many narco trafficantes are running around with Ruger .22 rifles). Also had to make sure all handguns were reported to the NY State Police every five years, so background checks could be run in perpetuity). She asked what I was going to do. “Nothing,” I replied, “nothing”. What I did do was pack it up and leave NY.

    So once again tyranny exerts itself, now on a national level, conducted by vindictive fruitcakes without the intellectual honesty or personal integrity to admit that pandemic-level gun violence doesn’t exist, but exists largely on a localized level. Overlay the map of ‘gun violence’ instances with the map of cities owned and operated by the Dem machine. Clean up your own cities before you come to mine.

  • Richard B Jones January 29, 2021, 12:42 pm

    Your point is irrelevant to the right to carry. Requiring a concealed carry permit does not limit your right to carry. It’s debatable constitutionally, just the same as what you can carry. However, if the permit system is unfair or burdensome it’s probably not constitutional either. Firearms ID cards or Owner permits are probably not constitutional and only a few states have them. Concealed carry is legal in all states with 12 states requiring no permit.

  • Nicholas January 29, 2021, 11:41 am

    I like to read the comments because it gives me a sense of where we are going to be.
    When the Heller decision was passed, I commented that it was a bad decision. Most people do not understand what was written in the opinion. By the way, it was an opinion, not a ruling like Miller. Ten years later the 4th circuit noticed what I did, and so they upheld the Maryland assault weapon ban. They told the S. Ct., in so many words, if AR’s, and AK’s are protected, then you need to tell us so. The S. Ct., through legal mumbo-jumbo said the right was actually a privilege that could be infringed. The 2nd amendment community will go to, what is now being called for, internment camps swearing up and down that the court said it was a right.
    The biggest problem we have is the 2nd amendment community itself. They rely on people that are clueless as to the law in this matter. I’ve spoken to and debated several pro-2nd attorney’s and they know nothing about this topic except for the misapplication of the 2nd as a guarantee of the individual. I’ll say again, the 2nd was added to guarantee provisions in the Constitution that REQUIRE an armed citizenry. That armed citizenry, the Framers explained, would protect all our rights. This seems to be a concept that is totally foreign to the vast majority.
    In simple terms, you have no rights if you fail to understand the law, disparage the law, and will do everything in your power to deny the law.
    Does anyone care to understand the fact that the provisions of the Constitution requiring armed citizens outweighs what we think is a right that we cannot enforce? We currently have no means to enforce because we don’t even care to acknowledge the fact that the Constitution says we must enforce.
    Does anyone understand that the requirement in the Constitution cannot be changed without several amendments?

    • Richard B Jones January 29, 2021, 12:30 pm

      That of course is the misleading talking point of the anti-2A believers. The amendment is clear and the discussion of the framers is clear and Heller reaffirmed that it is an “individual” right. Prior to the declaration, at Concord/Lexington. the community had a collective armory in addition to individual ownership. The British were on their way to capture this armory. The citizens resisted and we know the rest of the story. The founding fathers were acutely aware that removing the ability for individuals to defend themselves, especially against a tyrannical government, was a threat to freedom. So spin it any way you want but the intent is clear.

      Excuse me? The 2nd amendment is NOT A PRIVILEGE!!!!! IT IS A RIGHT UNDER CONSTITUTIONAL LAW! Any judge that can’t read shouldn’t be on the friggen bench to begin with! THE 2ND AMENDMENT NEEDS NO INTERPRETATION! IT IS THERE IN BLACK AND WHITE!!!!! SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED!!!!!! I would suggest to the liberal idiots out there to find a dictionary and look up the definitions of those words! That is… If you can read of course….

    • ConradCA January 29, 2021, 1:54 pm

      Heller stated that we have the right to keep and bear roughly the same arms carried by modern infantry. This includes ARs and AKs. The only way around this is to change the court by putting a bunch more progressive fascists on the court.

    • Easy Eddie January 29, 2021, 12:45 pm

      You’ve hit upon a profound truth. A gun is only a gun. I am the weapon. Take away the guns, and the weapons a thinking man will assemble will be far more horrifying than the gun ever was. As the old Klingon proverb goes, “Four thousand throats can be cut in one night by a running man.”

      • Dave Emery January 29, 2021, 6:38 pm

        Motivated believers can do the impossible. Guerilla warfare anybody? That’s how we really beat the Brits back in the day. Klingon or American…watch out. We aren’t Canada or Australia.

    • Reticent Rogue January 29, 2021, 12:31 pm

      With all due respect, my friend, your daughter’s assessment of LE interest is rooted in two things—present law and the assumption that door to door confiscation will be the means of enforcing new laws. Laws change and political strategists are always thinking of new means of enforcement. Door to door is totally unnecessary: one example, the same data base that has all your gun registry information also has your Social Security into, your state pension data, your banking info—they follow your money, livelihood, mortgage, etc. So, the BATFE notifies the Social Security office that you have in your possession an illegal firearm or one you did not turn in, yatta, yatta—next thing you know, you get a letter saying your check will not come until you send them verification you turned it in to the local authorities. There does not have to be a shot fired. Bottom line, law enforcement does not determine policy…people like Jackson-Lee do.

    • Ataturk January 29, 2021, 11:03 am

      The only problem is that every time one is term limited, another has to be elected. How is there going to be any improvement with the Dems controlling the elections? There is no guarantee the newly elected will be any better than the one term limited. The likes of Schumer, Pelosi, Lee, Waters are elected over and over again. What makes you think voters won’t just vote in another just like them or worse? Look at the results of the last election.

    I am a skeptic, but this will not fly. On a premise of case law precedence. It was already established through courts that government can not levy tax or require a license of the citizen to be able to exercise constitutional right. Here are just a few, in case somebody here wants to fact-check me:

    “No state shall convert a liberty into a license, and charge a fee therefore.” (Murdock v. Pennsylvania, 319 U.S. 105)

    “If the State converts a right (liberty) into a privilege, the citizen can ignore the license and fee and engage in the right (liberty) with impunity.” (Shuttlesworth v. City of Birmingham, Alabama, 373 U.S. 262)

      • Nicholas January 29, 2021, 12:16 pm

        Re-read Heller, because they said the legislature can regulate. Which they intone as a privilege, but not a right. The reason they said that is because of the case as it was brought before them.
        People have to understand that the NRA has staunchly supported gun control, and they’ve written it in their magazines.
        They will not bring a case based on the actual law especially after they’ve taken decades to misinform the public as to the proper stance on the obligation to own firearms for the purpose “to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections, and repel Invasions”.

      Not all states require registration. If you are pro-gun, please educate yourself before you offer erroneous opinions, you only help the uninformed to justify their unconstitutional argument. If you are a gun controller. I will pray for you to come to your senses. Have you ever heard of a C&R? As an example, for antique guns like a Mosin Nagant made in the 20s, if your state allows C&R purchases, and you possess a C&R, the rifle can be sent directly to you at home rather than to a FFL to do a transfer to you. Most legal gun owners have had dozens and dozens of background checks, the system works, we don’t need MORE regulation on background checks. Gun safety is important, but if I have shot handguns, rifles and shotguns for 40+ years, hunted for 40 years and am an amateur gun smith fixing guns for 10 years, why do I need an 8 hour safety class? I could give the freaking safety class.

    • Rob January 29, 2021, 9:55 am

      If you’re 18 years old and can join the military; you’re telling me that the legal age to own a firearm should be 21?! That’s dumb. You ask “How do guns get into criminal hands?” They steal them! Someone broke into my Aunt’s house and stole my uncle’s guns. Stricter gun laws only infringe on law abiding gun owners not criminals.

        You forgot about the biggest supplier of illegal weapons; the Chinese. They have been illegally shipping weapons into this country at least as far back as I was able to verify, which is over 25 years.
        Heck, they own the port of San Diego, so I’m sure that containers go through without a problem.

    • Nicholas January 29, 2021, 10:54 am

      The 2nd is not about the “individual right”. That is another false doctrine designed to obstruct the DUTY to keep and bear arms. The S.Ct., decades ago ruled that the 2nd was to guarantee provisions in the Constitution that REQUIRE ALL ABLE-BODIED men to be organized, armed, and trained with weapons that they MUST Purchase and MAINTAIN. Those weapons are to be of the same quality as that of a soldier. In the words of the court “citizens primarily, soldiers on occasion”.
      The constitutional mandatory age for a person to acquire such an arm is 18.
      Those provisions in the Constitution, for which the congress was required to write the statutes, also prevent government from creating all their so-called law enforcement agencies. People in power just love to usurp power by any means to subjugate the people. Why? Too many reasons to list.
      This is not a democracy. It is a Constitutional Federal Republic which is required under Article IV, § 4. The Founders provided that people like you and Jackson could not destroy our very unique form of government through the usurpation of law by mob rule.
      Since the Constitution requires, and it is a DUTY for the citizens to keep and bear arms all gun control is sedition, subversion, and amounts to insurrection. If there was any adherence at all to the rule of law, those who vote for measures such as Jackson has proposed would be indicted, arrested, and imprisoned for a long time. There is no provision for “public officials” to receive any immunity. Like most of the nonsense that has taken place in this nation, immunity was made up by the court in order to deny the people their proper redress, and justice.
      The Founders wrote the law to prevent what is taking place, but they also understood ambivalence, sedition, and ignorance so they provided that the People must always be armed against the likes of those who would give away, or take freedom for some false sense of security.

      “Nuthobs”…….. really, your so uneducated that you can’t correctly spell “Nut Jobs” …wait, I guess you are a good representation of the mindless gun grab agenda you and your Comrades are on! Uneducated about how a FREE DEMOCRATIC SOCIETY works! (When I say “Democratic” I don’t mean YOUR hard Leftist political party. Obviously your a Leftist, it is painted in your writing like the hammer and sickle on your flag in your weed den! So let’s give you a reality check! @ 18 years old your allowed to Vote and by Vote I mean make your voice heard to uphold or amend the Constitution of the United States of America. @ 18 All Americans including You would and are obligated to register with Selective Service to be called upon in the event of War to protect Our Country, oh and protect The Constitution of the United States of America, however it sounds like your alright with that not happening “Comrade”. If that’s not a good enough argument, when a person turns 18 you can enlist in the US Military and guess what……. THEY GIVE YOU, AN 18yr OLD A GUN! If I’m old enough to protect and if necessary die for MY Country, then I’m old enough to own a firearm. Drinking age is a Law owning a gun is a Constitutional Right! As far as Criminals getting guns, almost but not 100% of all the guns used in crimes were STOLEN from Yes a law abiding citizen…… OH BUT WAIT it was your President Obama BinLaden that with the help of Pelosi and Hillary sold 10’s of 1,000 of “Assault” style weapons to Mexican Cartels trying to “Catch Them” with the illegal firearms that The Obama Administration Sold Them!!!!!! Another fact, it has been estimated by your Comrades (Statistician’s your buddies not Ours) that over 2/3 of all those weapons were confiscated but what they don’t tell you, and you can find it if you dig, is that they (the weapons) made it back across the US boarder AND those weapons were used prior to being recovered by Our Brothers and Sisters in Blue (or whatever color their uniform is 😉) to extort and commit violent crime HERE in the USA! With Obama’s loose immigration laws it allowed gang and Cartel members free range here in the US, the state I live in has seen over half of all violent crime (Rape, Child Molestation, Armed Robery etc) and almost 90% + of all gun violence done by either Illegal gang and Cartel members or the weapons used were obtained by or from them!!!! AND YOUR WORRIED ABOUT THE INSURANCE PASSING THE SNIF TEST!!!!! I think you’re sniffing too much of something!!! Almost every FREE state requires Hunters Safety or Hunters Education (which is a 2 day class with gun handling and shooting skills test) to either buy a hunting license, OR obtain a CCP, that’s a concealed carry permit since your not firearm savvy! In regards to the latter Law Enforcement just doesn’t hand them out, it requires finger prints, photo, extensive class and range time and a Federal background check through the County or State Law Enforcement. To you blanket gun registration holes, EVERY STATE requires a Federal Background Check ALREADY!!!! It must be done EVERYWHERE to purchase a new or used Firearm from a Dealer or a Gun Show. Your Made Up “Loop Hole” that Gun Shows don’t require background checks is false and it is constantly being fed, hell forced down our throats, by your Comrades in the Media and your clueless anti-gun flock being influenced by the Uber Rich! Legal gun owners are Smarter than You and Your Comrades think. We aren’t selling guns to people to commit crimes!! Less than .03 % of guns in illegal hands (with the exception of the Guns Your President Obama sold them) were PURCHASED from a legal gun owner! I bet a boat load of money YOUR Representatives aren’t telling you that!! We sell or trade to other law abiding gun owners. A majority of the time it is personal Friends and Family Members, our Sons, Daughters, Sisters and Brothers! Your Comrades use the, so called, Internet “Loop Hole” there’s that word again, they and the Media are lying to you and Your Comrades. They (You President and his mindless flock) are not blind to the fact that Federal Law requires all internet gun sales of a gun to ship to a licensed dealer to have a background check preformed prior to transferring the gun to the buyer!!!! But they don’t tell you that! Your own parties agenda is feeding you a line of crap and you and your Comrades are eating it up! You must take Us (The Over 40% of (Legally acquired) U.S. households that own guns) as idiots!!! Follow YOUR President Biden’s advice and “GO BUY A SHOTGUN, COME ON MAN!” and see how you like it when the Comrades You voted for want to take it so you can no longer protect your loved ones or provide food for them in the 3rd World country Your Comrades are trying to turn the USA 🇺🇸 Into!!!!! You obviously live in your own little blip of existence always knowing your right…… (Sarcasm I thought I would spell that out because you only believe what the Liberal Media has brain washed you to believe) In the Entire Existence of Humanity it tells us that EVENTUALLY, Tyranny will and always will be, defeated by the people. Even if it has to be “Terminated With Extreme Prejudice” (Prejudice in the Military Sense!) I know you were looking for a racially heated rebuttal but I won’t give you the satisfaction…… I’m not 100% Caucasian so stick that in your Bong and Smoke It!

  • Steve Praskievicz January 29, 2021, 8:23 am

    Thanks for this article about 2nd amendment restrictions. One point discussed refers to comparing gun registration to motor vehicle registration and licensing. The problem (difference) with that argument is driving is a “privilege” and gun ownership is a “right” guaranteed by the Second Amendment!

    I am not against responsible gun laws but how far does the government need to go? If guns are “outlawed” then only “outlaws” will have guns. And how are citizens to defend themselves should the Liberal Policy’s defunding the Police advance?

    I think responsible gun ownership includes obeying Responsible Laws and Regulations. Not Laws created from misinformatation and ignorance.

    That’s a big pill to swallow but if it gets rid of wait times, tax stamps, gun free zones, provides concealed carry reciprocity, grants access to class three weapons and suppressors, I might consider complying.

      None of what you said will happen! With this bill if passed will only make things worse for us. The 2nd,s last line says the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. They just want to make the American people to subjugated to them, and whack jobs like George Soros. Check out what he did to some of his own country men during WW2.

    Fortunately there are Democrats vulnerable in the 2022 elections who know their gravy train job in Congress would jump the track if they ever dared vote for such a bill. So it will never pass and even if it did could never pass muster in court as long as the 2nd Amendment exists. But still scary to think there are totalitarians in Congress who would even concoct such a bill. No Nancy, it’s not Republicans who are the “enemy within.”

    • Sam January 29, 2021, 8:34 am

      Nope. As long as they get to count the votes, you opinions do not matter. Nancy and Chucky know this. They will ram the bills through Congress, have Resident Den Bi sign it and then threaten the SCOTUS with destruction if they overturn it.

SCOTUS wouldn’t hear any evidence regarding fraud in the 2020 election, on a pretext. So much for your faith in our corrupt Legal system!

      As for 90% of the people supporting UBCs, the results are greatly skewed by the way pollsters ask the question. I have talked with a number of gun owners who didn’t think UBCs were a bad idea until I explained to them that there would be no way to enforce the law without registration. All changed their mind once they were fully informed.

      • Jerry January 29, 2021, 8:56 pm

        I just spent the past hour or so reading the ravings of people who sounded uneducated ( which they probably weren’t) to those who sounded like judges, lawyers or experts on the constitution (which they probably weren’t).
        I am a 72 year old, Vietnam vet. Who spent over 13 months in Vietnam covering my a@@, to “protect our way of life and freedom in the US from communist ideas taking over our country”. Now all I hear is how the people we elected are trying to make OUR country, just what we were fighting against. Not only in Vietnam, but all through history before 1975, and after that up to today. I hear, we can vote them out, but that is at least 2 years from now and up to 6 years for some Senators. With all the damage they have done to our country in 9 days, how can we let those actions to continue for so long. Along with that, if you think the last election was legitimate, you are not thinking, and if you think the next election will be any more legitimate, You are a “dreamer”.
        A lot of you touched on the key, but I don’t know how many really understand the meaning. Keeping a gun, isn’t what this is all about. Keeping our (and our grandchildren’s) freedoms and rights Intact is the real subject.
        And just how does that fit in with the left trying to dis-arm us? Think about what the constitution says, and what my oath of service was(along with anyone who ever served in the armed forces). We are authorized and committed to uphold and protect the constitution and country form “all enemies, foreign and domestic”.
        If we can’t wait, or trust, an election to remove these “enemies”, we must protect this country ourselves, by force, and that’s is where a well maintained militia comes in.
        We will not stop the destruction of our way of life by writing posts, or ignoring laws that are unconstitutional. We have to take action and force the change needed by one means. The means given to us in the 2nd amendment. I believe most true patriots will still lay down their lives for the freedoms of future generations. Once this showdown takes place the radical left will never again dare try our strength!
        I lived in fear in Vietnam for almost 14
        months, but will more gladly defend our rights by fighting again!
        I just wonder how many patriots would be with me.
