I recently stumbled upon various media outlets indicating that President Biden is now calling out to the elected members of the legislature to act on “common sense” gun law, all today, February 14, 2021:
Excerpt from USA Today article – “…Today, I am calling on Congress to enact commonsense gun law reforms, including requiring background checks on all gun sales, banning assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, and eliminating immunity for gun manufacturers who knowingly put weapons of war on our streets,” the White House declared…
So I looked over the Bill H.R. 127 and it is quite a doozy. Under the Section 932 they are identifying: Firearm registration and ammunition possession, registration of firearms, licensing, firearm insurance and penalties if these are not followed. Yes, you heard me – PENALTIES if you DO NOT have a license to own a firearm and ammunition. Again the full 19 page bill is in the PDF file above. And here are some highlights of what I saw from this bill that was introduced:
So in addition to what I’ve noted above here are some interesting time of events/tweets/videos/posts – what have you… to put these media articles (at the beginning of this blog) into perspective…
So the orator in the video does a great job breaking down and highlighting important pieces of this ridiculous bill introduced in Congress. The bill itself was introduced last year on January 2020. But I haven’t seen any updates to it so I’m assuming (my gut feeling) that it has been shot down (pun intended). This bill (includes variety of things) is 260 pages long if converted to a PDF file.
It really is ridiculous. How disconnected are these people we voted to represent us in Congress? Pretty badly disconnected. I do want to point out the main sponsor of the H.R. 5717 bill was Representative Henry “Hank” C. Johnson from Georgia. IF you do not recall from back then, I really got a great laugh AT him because he believed that Guam would tip over or capsize. However, he later stated it was a joke. I’ll let you decide if you believe he was joking or not. It did not look like that to me in the video below. I do give the Admiral praise in responding with a straight face… I wouldn’t be able to do that. Well, did you know Guam is a “floating island”…? NOT!
However, another bill was then introduced by Senator Elizabeth Warren – S.3254. This bill is VERY SIMILAR to the H.R. 5717. I think she was trying to re-introduce the bill to see if it can be passed. My goodness.
Here’s a continuation of my thoughts… All these “gun bills” and “gun bans” literally HURT law abiding citizens here in the United States. Again, I repeat – LAW-ABIDING CITIZENS. Let me clarify for you, criminals DO NOT care for any law. They will, by any means necessary, attain a firearm and/or weapon however they wish. I’m just stating it plainly… If a criminal knows you’re vulnerable – they will take advantage of you – no matter what the cost.
Here’s a few more good videos about “buy back” programs – I laugh at this notion and what the Australians have warned the United States citizens about.
Protect our 2nd amendment rights among our other rights – I literally believe that our founding fathers of this nation – United States of America – were the wisest and genuine men in their days when they created the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights. They foresaw the future and knew these rights would be tested time and time again.
We are supposed to learn from history so we do not repeat it. Apparently we still aren’t and it’s not sticking.
Common sense people, law abiding citizens follow the laws.
Whereas non-law abiding citizens do not. That means they will, by any means necessary, get a gun or firearm or do whatever through ILLEGAL means. These non-law abiding citizens don’t care about you, honestly speaking. If they know you’re vulnerable – they will attack you, harm you, steal from you, rob you, mug you, whatever else that may come to their mind. Bottom line is – they will do and want to cause harm.
Since the gun ban in Australia – the crime rates increased as indicated in the video and percentages noted below…
So yeah, I’d prefer to be able to protect myself and my family against these non-law abiding people who don’t care to follow ANY law.
