Good old Hank Johnson, at it again.
This bill is the embodiment of every gun grabbers' dreams, since the 94 ban sunset.
Read it- They hate us.

That was a tough read. Grrr. Imagine if you had to do the same to vote or get a library card.

My guess is 100 percent of that is unconstitutional. :lol:

Now joined by it's nearly identical companion bill in the Senate S. 3254. Thanks to Senator E. Warren

Sent this to Chabot, Portman, and Brown (modifying 5717 to 3254)


Steve,

As your constituent, you need to know that I'm a veteran small business owner who had to halt work during the OH Dept. of Health order, and as I'm not eligible for unemployment I found work at the gun store for the 3rd time in my life. I'm seeing a huge amount of folks scared with potential martial law, and these are almost all first time buyers. I'm a white male, and I'm a minority when it comes to the ethnicities and genders of folks that I've sold guns to since Saturday.

One of them mentioned this bill, HR 5717, to me yesterday evening. This is a nightmare, and needs to be killed quickly. In the words of a young black male and his wife, "the only reason to tax another 30% on guns and 50% on ammo is because they don't want us to have them."

They are correct. The tensions I'm seeing in the real world are not between the citizenry these days. It's a strong distrust of the government, and a lot of people realizing that the second amendment is about a violent overthrow of the government. We need to prevent bloodshed, and stopping gun control actions is statistically the best step towards that measure.
