Pro Gun Group Says H.R. 127 Gun Control Bill Is ‘Insanity on Steroids’

CCRKBA Says H.R. 127 Gun Control Bill Is ‘Insanity on Steroids’

U.S.A.-(AmmoLand.com)- Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee’s H.R. 127, a gun control measure requiring gun owner licensing, psychological evaluations, retroactive gun registration, and separate licensing for modern sporting rifles is “insanity on steroids,” the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said today.

“Over the years,” said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb, “we’ve seen some astonishingly bad legislation originate on Capitol Hill, but this one takes the term ‘abomination’ to an entirely new level. One look at this bill and you wonder whether Congresswoman Jackson Lee ever heard of the Bill of Rights, which includes the Second Amendment.”

H.R. 127 would require the owner of any firearm to supply the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives with the make, model, and serial number of every gun he or she owns, and that includes guns people may have owned for years. They would also have to report the identity of any person to whom, and any period of time during which, the firearm will be loaned to that individual.

The licensing requirement mandates that the license applicant undergoes a criminal background check, and then submits to a psychological evaluation to determine whether the person is psychologically unsuited to possess a firearm. Successful licensees must show they have an insurance policy which will cost $800.

“H.R. 127 is a constitutionally-challenged monstrosity,” Gottlieb stated. “It ignores the fact that the Second Amendment protects a fundamental right to keep and bear arms, not some strictly-regulated government privilege. Government cannot require a psychological evaluation to exercise a right enumerated in the Constitution.

“Is it possible Sheila Jackson Lee skipped high school civics,” he wondered. “This legislation treats firearms owners like second-class citizens for exercising their Second Amendment rights. It’s an outrage that a member of Congress could even conceive of such a measure, much less propose that it become law.

“Instead of subjecting gun owners to such Draconian requirements,” Gottlieb observed, “maybe it’s time to require psychological evaluations of each member of Congress.”

Attention: Joe Biden, Beto O’Rourke, Nanny Pelosi, Chuckie Schumer and all other Communist Pigs who currently work for the Federal Government. Please be careful with this legislation. You may not live to regret it. If this POS legislation becomes law, the BATF-Nazis will be required to enforce it. That will mandate that Federally-Ordained Thugs show up at the front doors, of over 100 million, legal, American gun owners. Please keep in mind: Most of us could care less about AR-15s. Those are just average caliber weapons. Most Americans own high-powered hunting rifles. These weapons do NOT fire rubber bullets, or… Read more »

We should SUPPORT this bill! It would be a great way to get rid of all of the anti-gunners. You just register your weapons as being owned by your anti-gunner of choice. Then get “caught” and say they loaned you the firearm, didn’t he/she fill out the proper paperwork/form? If not, they should be prosecuted. Win-win.

Enough is enough. Trump can’t fix it, regardless of how many people want to vote in 2 years for him/his recommended picks, cuz Trump does not control the voting machine software.

We thought Trump could get it done, and he failed. We’ll just have to do it ourselves.

We need to cut the heads off the snakes – start where you live, you know a snake when you see it. And we’ll find out whose side LE and the military are on.

All hat and no horse – never a truer description of anyone than that one of SJL. I think those are the tests that those running for congress should have to pass – weekly. Here’s the rub: “shall not be infringed.” She needs to read that, think about it, and apparently have someone explain it to her. Can you imagine imposing these restrictions on the right to free speech? Or freedom to worship?

In 2020, just in Chicago (and mainly in certain neighborhoods): There were 792 homicides (719 of whom died from GSWs) There were 4,174 people shot (3,455 survived) 55 of those killed were children Those numbers all go into the Moms Demand Action stats, but they never talk about these specific deaths. That’s because for less than 2% of the murders and non-negligence homicides in Chicago is the perpetrator arrested, convicted, and actually spends a meaningful amount of time incarcerated. If you isolate the murders and non-negligent homicides in the most violent of those neighborhoods and divide by the population of… Read more »

A significant percentage of Americans will believe whatever they are told that is in-line with their feelings:

  • The primary cause of murders is old, white guys in rural areas with AR15s;
  • The middle class pays the majority of taxes; and
  • Government imposed price controls are a really good idea.

The facts are available with a few strokes of the keyboard, but people want to believe certain things and they are reluctant to change their view. Some even take great joy in wallowing in their ignorance.

Psychological evaluation- Have you ever thought about banging your mother, father, brother or sister? If so, did you bang your mother, father, brother or sister? If so, did you enjoy it? Did you ever think about torturing animals? If yes, did you torture any animal? If yes, did you enjoy torturing animals? A question that should be added is – Are you confused with the gender you were born with? I had to take a psychological evaluation for a job once and those first 2 were actually on the test.

Further each member shall be required to repeat their Oath of office, and sign a copy of the Bill of rights and that oath, it should then be posted for view by the public.

Even an illegal move of proclaiming that all republicans are terrorists. I know that obiden hasn’t proclaimed it yet but congress is spreading division amongst our people and telling their side to act out against the other which is creating a new form of terrorism making them the terrorists. How will we stop them from dividing the country and our people while inciting riots and peaceful… Read more »

OK folks. This piece of trash is null from the outset. The best way to explain this to your listeners is to refer to cases addressing ‘Jim Crow’ style ordinances that attempt to suppress any enumerated Constitutional right. Here is a great example of how courts have dealt with it in the past: Murdoch v. Pennsylvania: https://supreme.justia.com/cases/federal/us/319/105/ Jim Crow laws are directed at a vilified class and deny the free and uninfringed exercise of a natural right. That is what we have here. Requiring fees and other ‘jumps through the hoop’ to exercise those rights which are inherent in our… Read more »

I am embarrassed, not only is Jackson Lee from Texas, but her district in Houston elected her.
Don’t suppose there is some mechanism allowing us to deport her and all her supporters to some place more suitable – such as NYC or smell-A?

Had this come NY or CA – I could almost believe it is an effort to trigger Texit as it is so farcically extreme.

Because the people that vote for her are dumber than she is. Harris County is rife with Sheilaisms. One of her best ones was during the Harvey rainstorm and flooding where she declared “Houston is 50 feet below sea level”on national TV. These are the same morons that helped elect Lina (alias Dora the Explorer) Hidalgo as county judge (executive) when her sole experience had been going to school at Stanford and Harvard, probably on someone else’s nickel.
