I'm just going to post a few of them here because I'm short of blood pressure pills. First, one man wrecking crew Frank Lautenburg,
S. 22, the Gun Show Background Check Act of 2013, by U.S. Sen. Frank Lautenberg, D-N.J. --S.22 would require background checks for all firearms sales at gun shows, with "gun show" defined to include any place where more than 50 guns are on sale/display. http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d113:s.22:Not to be outdone, this act of insanity requires a background check for every purchase of ammo:
S.33, the Large Capacity Ammunition Feeding Device of 2013, by U.S. Sen. Frank Lautenberg, D-N.J. -- S.33 would prohibit the sale, transfer, importation or possession of any magazine, belt, drum, feed strip, or similar device that can hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition, unless it was made before the law's effective date. http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d113:s.00033:
S.35, the Stop Online Ammunition Sales Act of 2013, by U.S. Sen. Frank Lautenberg, D-N.J. -- S.35 would require face to face purchases of ammunition, require licensing of ammunition dealers, and require reporting regarding bulk purchases of ammunition. http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d113:s.00035:
S.174, the Ammunition Background Check Act of 2013, by U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn. -- S.174 would require an instant background check for the purchase of ammunition, and would restore pre-1986 requirements that sellers track their inventory and keep records of their customers; purchases of 1,000 rounds or more, or thefts of large amounts of ammunition, would have to be reported to law enforcement. http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d113:s.00174:Now I'm always suspicious of these glowingly named laws they keep coming up with, since the laws never do what they're intended to do, but Chuckie Schumer sponsoring something called "The Protecting Responsible Gun Sellers Act"? Does anyone on Earth with an IQ above the freezing point think Chuckie actually wants to protect anyone with any gun business? What horrors live in this one? Do we have to pass it to see what's in it? No effin' thanks.
S.374, the Protecting Responsible Gun Sellers Act of 2013, by U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. -- S.374 would make congressional findings that Congress supports and respects Second Amendment rights and the existing prohibition on a national firearms registry, but also that the Justice Department should make a priority of closing holes in its firearm background check system and that citizens should be more vigilant about keeping firearms from dangerously mentally ill people. http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d113:s.00374:Isn't amazing they want to add thousands of background checks every day, vastly multiply the paperwork to buy or sell anything, and yet they'll tell you to your face they don't enforce the laws they have today because they don't have the manpower??
The House is a mixed bag of mostly bullcrap, too, with some scattered hints of sanity in there. For example, how about a national registry of all handguns?
HR 117, the Handgun Licensing and Registration Act of 2013, by Rep. Rush Holt, D-N.J. -- HR 117 would require that each state provide for the mandatory licensing and registration of every handgun sold in the future. The bill is based upon New Jersey's mandatory handgun registration law. http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d113:h.r.00117:No? Don't want a handgun registry? How about no guns whatsoever without a Federal license?
HR 34, Blair Holt's Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2013, by Rep. Bobby Rush, D-Ill. -- HR 34 would bar anyone from buying or owning a firearm without a background check and government-issued license; the U.S. Attorney General would establish a federal record-of-sale system, and any firearm thefts or losses would have to be reported to the government within three days. http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d113:h.r.00034:The winner on false and deceptive naming here is probably this one:
HR 21, the NRA Members' Gun Safety Act of 2013, by Rep. Jim Moran, D-Va. -- HR 21 would require a background check for every firearm sale or transfer, with the only exceptions being gifts between immediate family members; probate or executor transfers after the owner's death; a loan to someone who believes they need the firearm in their home to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm; and certain loans while target shooting, hunting, fishing or trapping. It also would require owners to report a firearm's theft or loss within 48 hours, and would require any state that allows concealed carry to establish a permit process if it doesn't already have one. http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d113:h.r.00021:There's a ton of laws in the sausage mills. Every permutation of taking away virtually everything, all the way to removing gun free zones around schools, revoking presidential executive orders, but no mention of revoking the 1968 Gun Control Act or the NFA.
Hope you're up for running a marathon because this fight is going to be on for a long time. Your senators' and your representative's office staffs should be looking at caller ID or email address and saying, "oh, crap; not him again". Unless you know for sure they're on the right side of this.
And start looking at ways to defeat the ones who vote for this crap.
In your spare time.
