For some reason unknown to me, I immediately got the big red X. My question was in regards to a bill that was introduced a while ago in the House of Representatives, but hasn't been voted on yet. You can find what it entails by looking up HR 5717 on the internet.

Or maybe it wasn't my question being blocked, it was just the copied image of an written article relating to that HR bill that didn't transfer and therefore couldn't be shown here. I have no way of knowing for sure what happened, but I'll bet that's what it was. Anyway this new bill floating around in Congress talks about drastic price increases (taxes) on all future gun and ammo purchases plus other serious anti-Second Amendment measures affecting only law-abiding folks being adopted. As everybody already knows, criminals don't worry about price increases and laws. Like I said earlier, just look up HR 5717 for all the pertinent details.

Gun Violence Prevention and Community Safety Act of 2020

This bill makes various changes to the federal framework governing the sale, transfer, and possession of firearms and ammunition. Among other things, the bill does the following:

  • generally requires individuals to obtain a license to purchase, acquire, or possess a firearm or ammunition;
  • raises the minimum age—from 18 years to 21 years—to purchase firearms and ammunition;
  • establishes new background check requirements for firearm transfers between private parties;
  • requires law enforcement agencies to be notified following a firearms-related background check that results in a denial;
  • creates a statutory process for a family or household member to petition a court for an extreme risk protection order to remove firearms from an individual who poses a risk of committing violence;
  • restricts the import, sale, manufacture, transfer, or possession of semiautomatic assault weapons and large capacity ammunition feeding devices;
  • restricts the manufacture, sale, transfer, purchase, or receipt of ghost guns (i.e., guns without serial numbers);
  • makes trafficking in firearms a stand-alone criminal offense;
  • requires federally licensed gun dealers to submit and annually certify compliance with a security plan to detect and deter firearm theft;
  • removes limitations on the civil liability of gun manufacturers;
  • allows the Consumer Product Safety Commission to issue safety standards for firearms and firearm components;
  • establishes a community violence intervention grant program; and
  • promotes research on firearms safety and gun violence prevention.
The date on this is 1/30/2020, The Dems are always trying to chip away at the 2A.

like the NRA or not, every gun owner needs to join the NRA and financially contribute.they are the only real voice we have and are paying attention all the time. you can make all the excuses you want, but is there any better way to keep track of the politics and bills being authored to further infringe upon our rights.
