Shhhhhh, that was supposed to be a secret! They were trying to sneak that one by with all eyes on the AWB.
... and sneaking in the "universal" background checks on all firearms transactions, which is a thing buried in several of the proposed bills:

  • H.R. 21: NRA Members’ Gun Safety Act of 2013.
  • H.R. 34: Blair Holt’s Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2013.
  • S. 374: Protecting Responsible Gun Sellers Act of 2013.
  • H.R. 137: Fix Gun Checks Act of 2013 / Universal background checks.
  • S. 74: Ammunition Background Check Act of 2013
  • S. 22: Gun Show Background Check Act of 2013
  • and who knows where else. But those are the ones I've found so far.

And the beat goes on.

Well you know they gotta attack from all fronts. They figure they can sneak on through in there somewhere without telling us. It's just a matter of time before they manage to do it too!

I clicked on "opposed" and sent the following message to my representatives:

I oppose H.R. 117: Handgun Licensing and Registration Act of 2013 because...

...that's what Hitler did before he began to exterminate the Jews of Europe.

Pretty soon they won't be able to say we are paranoid for claiming they want registration, then confiscation.

Oh wait, yeah, they will probably keep saying it anyway. Those people don't really mean it, you can't actually listen to what they are saying...

What gets me is there is no possibility to enforce background checks. How do they know what happened to that old revolver my granddad gave me years ago? They don't, and if I sell it to my cousin. How are they gonna ever go back and figure it all out? They can't. So...I don't know what that is gonna accomplish.

None of it will accomplish anything except help the Gubment to eventually confiscate weapons to as large as degree as they are able. It wont stop one criminal from getting a gun ammo or anything else its proported to do

According to govtrack.us, this appears to be a re-introduction of a bill from 2003 (HR124). Sponsored by the same rep, Rush Holt of NJ. Guess he figures this is a perfect time to try again. Oh, and don't believe the extremely low odds for this bill quoted from the website. Even if it's true that it likely won't pass, we still need to fight it.

Now you're starting to get it. :yup:

What's it going to accomplish? While it cannot be made practical, it can certainly be enforced. Which makes one wonder that if the point of it isn't really practical crime reduction, then what's left? Control of the citizenry, of the "law-abiding" portion of the citizenry, the ones who'll "jump" to avoid being criminalized for such a laughable attempt at actual reduction in crime. Let alone, being a precursor along the ugly ride toward confiscation.

POPVOX.com lists about 50 bills in the House & Senate that are about gun control. A couple are pro bills like National Right to Carry, but most are anti.

Everyone should go to POPVOX.COM & register their position on each bill. The legislators use POPVOX as a tool. It is not their only input, but it is one they do look at. POPVOX is easy to use & no spam.

Everyone on this forum need to go to POPVOX and provide their opinion.

You are missing the point.

Of course it won't work as written, the only way it will be effective is if they require all legal guns to be registered. That will get enacted as a policy of some agency, or as follow on legislation.

So, when they get around to making certain types illegal (not a ban, just a restriction of course), you either turn it in, or get hit with a felony when you can't produce the gun you said you had (since there is no record of you selling it or reporting it stolen). The alternative is getting caught with a gun that is not registered, and getting hit with a felony.

The school shooting shocked the nation and they know that is the best time to get the citizens to go along with almost anything..... Cases in point......

The Oklahoma bombing got us the Patriot Act........

September 11, 2001 one got us a stronger version of the Patriot Act, Department of Homeland Security and the "War on Terror"......

I've found that the best way to find all the bills that would involve "gun control" is to do a search on the Popvox site for terms like:
"gun", "weapon", firearm", "ammunition", "bullet", etc...anything you can think of that relates to guns...
The legislators are tricky; they'll call a bill something like "The Keep Kids Safe Act", when it actually involves some aspect of gun control. I guess there's no rule/law that says a bill has to have an accurate title (best example: the PATRIOT Act).
