DEMOCRATS ALREADY TRYING TO RAM THROUGH NEW GUN CONTROL BILL – HR7115
The new Democrat majority in the House of Representatives won’t be sworn into office until January, but that hasn’t stopped them from getting a jump start on their anti-freedom agenda –namely, legislation that attacks gun owners and the firearms industry and places undue and unconstitutional restrictions on the Second Amendment.
The piece of legislation is sponsored by New Jersey Rep. Frank Pallone and has been co-sponsored by 16 other House Democrats. Officially known as H.R. 7115, the bill has been laughably misnamed as the “3D Firearms Prohibition Act” — laughable because the bill actually has virtually nothing whatsoever to do with 3D-printed firearms.
The stated purpose of the bill is “to prohibit the sale, acquisition, distribution in commerce, or import into the United States of certain firearm receiver castings or blanks, assault weapon parts kits, and machine gun parts kits and the marketing or advertising of such castings or blanks and kits on any medium of electronic communications, to require homemade firearms to have serial numbers, and for other purposes.”
In laymen’s terms, and not the purposefully confusing legalese of legislation, the bill would completely ban the “do-it-yourself” 80 percent partial firearm receivers that people can complete themselves at home with the use of a few specific tools, as well as the additional parts necessary — typically sold as a kit — to produce a functioning semi-automatic firearm.
Furthermore, the bill would prohibit the manufacturers of said partial receivers and parts kits from advertising or marketing their products online or through the use of any other electronic medium.
On top of that, the bill would also require that any home-built firearms produced between 1968 and the date this bill would take effect, if passed, would now be required to possess a serial number — for “traceability” purposes — which would have to be obtained from a licensed firearms dealer for a fee.
Wow so every gun collector will be paying through the nose for the privilege of registering their guns with the government.
Fire up the 3D printers while you still can…
