So far, the Democrats have rolled out two specific plans to confiscate Americans' guns. Both involve a new "assault weapons ban" bill that would ban millions of the most commonly-owned firearms. But the two proposals differ in how the Left plans to take away those banned guns.
Joe Biden's proposal would tax the 2nd Amendment to death. Americans would be forced to pay $200 per semi-automatic rifle/shotgun/handgun or "high capacity" magazine that they own. Even modest gun collectors could be forced to pay thousands or even tens of thousands for the "privilege" of being able to keep owning their legally acquired firearms…
If you can't afford the taxes, you'd have to surrender, destroy, or permanently alter your firearms/magazines. If you can afford the tax, then you would need to register your guns with the ATF (so that the government can come back and confiscate them at a later date).
Not every Democrat likes Joe Biden's plan. Instead of taxing the 2nd Amendment to death, many on the Left are itching for door-to-door confiscations. They are pushing for Congress to pass H.R. 127, a bill that would do just that.
H.R. 127 requires that gun owners notify the government of "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." That last bit is important, since it would literally tell the Federal government where to search people's homes to confiscate their guns.
It would require that this new gun and gun owner database be made available to "all members of the public, all Federal, State, and local law enforcement authorities, all branches of the United States Armed Forces, and all State and local governments, as defined by the Bureau."
Believe it or not, the legislation gets worse… H.R. 127 would also require that all gun owners obtain a Federal license to continue possessing their guns. In order to qualify for a license, gun owners would need to (1) pass a background check, (2) pass a psychological assessment, (3) complete a training course that includes at least 24 hours of training, and (4) acquire firearm insurance (which does not even exist yet). Oh, and to top it all off, Democrats want to charge you 800 bucks just to apply for this license…
If you refuse or fail to meet any of these requirements, then your guns would be confiscated. Even if you find a way to jump through all these hoops, your guns would still eventually be confiscated (that is the whole point of a gun registry…)
Democrats are adamant about pushing this forward and they say that they have GOP support. You MUST stop them!
Don't let Dems ban, register, and confiscate millions of guns! Send your instant FaxBlast to Congress right now and force them to KILL Joe Biden's tax proposal, H.R. 127, or any other gun confiscation bill that the Radical Left dreams up!
The psychological assessment portion of H.R. 127 is terrifying. Not only would a DOJ-appointed psychologist have the power to issue a subjective assessment about whether or not someone should be "trusted" to own firearms, but the legislation would also allow the psychologist to interview all family members and former spouses. In other words, if you have a disgruntled family member or vengeful ex-spouse, they would have the power to veto your right to keep and bear arms…
If you own an antique firearm and want to hang it on your wall or place it on your mantle, H.R. 127 would require a separate Federal license for that. If you want to maintain possession of a "military-style weapon" (aka "assault weapon") that you already own, you'd have to get another license as well. If the government doesn't approve you for these extra permits, you would have to surrender, destroy, or permanently alter your guns.
And again: even if you get approved, it is a matter of when (not if) that registry gets used for gun confiscation. That is the whole purpose of a gun registry. World history shows that every single time a country has forced people to register their guns, that registry was used to confiscate them. It happened in Naxi Germany, the USSR, the UK, Canada, New Zealand, and Australia. Now, the Left wants to bring it here…
We have to stop this. Whether the Left chooses Joe Biden's tax, Sheila Jackson-Lee's door-to-door confiscation, or somewhere in the middle, this is the greatest threat ever posed to the 2nd Amendment.
You MUST fight back!
