An interesting list - firearms

| No Comments

From Peter at Bayou Renaissance Man:

If you need a gun, time may be running out to buy one without problems
I've posted many times in these pages about firearms, security and self-defense. Fortunately, many of my readers already understand these issues, and others have come to do so through the discussions we've had here. Over the past year alone, I've helped more than 20 people upgrade existing firearms or buy them - sometimes multiple firearms. Over the more than two decades since I came to this country, I daresay I've helped over 500 people in that way, plus taught at least as many disabled and/or handicapped people to shoot defensively. I'm quietly pleased about that.

Peter references a list of bills that have been pre-filled in Congress.  They are sitting there on Madame Speaker's desk waiting for Xiden to be sworn in as pResident:

    • H.R. 130: To require the safe storage of firearms and ammunition, and to require the investigation of reports of improper storage of firearms or ammunition.
    • H.R. 135: To require the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation to report to the Congress semiannually on the number of firearms transfers resulting from the failure to complete a background check within 3 business days, and the procedures followed after it is discovered that a firearm transfer has been made to a transferee who is ineligible to receive a firearm.
    • H.R. 121: To provide for the hiring of 200 additional Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents and investigators to enforce gun laws.
    • H.R. 127: To provide for the licensing of firearm and ammunition possession and the registration of firearms, and to prohibit the possession of certain ammunition.
    • H.R. 125: To amend title 18, United States Code, to provide for a 7-day waiting period before a semiautomatic firearm, a silencer, armor piercing ammunition, or a large capacity ammunition magazine may be transferred.
    • H.R. 167: To prohibit the transfer of a firearm at a gun show by a person who is not a federally licensed firearms dealer.
    • H.R. 30: To increase public safety by punishing and deterring firearms trafficking (which almost certainly means no more private, unrecorded firearms and/or ammunition sales from person to person).
I still regret that stupid boating accident of mine a few years ago when the damn thing caught a rogue wave and overturned. Why did I bring all my firearms with me on what was just going to be a three-hour cruise... Lucky to be alive.
