H. R. 127, which among many other things creates a federal gun registry, is just one of several pieces of legislation attacking the 2nd Amendment by the new Democrat-controlled Congress, has just had its full text revealed and it is overwhelming in its totalitarian reach.

The bill, which would be known as the “Sabika Sheikh Firearm Licensing and Registration Act” if passed into law, is one of several sponsored by radical-leftist Sheila Jackson Lee of Houston, who is also working on legislation for reparations.

The bill makes it illegal to own any guns or ammo without permission from the Federal government under a new set of draconian laws. A very short summary is that you will commit a Federal felony if you possess any gun or any ammo (even 1 bullet) without being licensed and insured and being in the new federal gun registry.

In addition to undergoing psychological counseling and having your family and friends interviewed, you will pay $800 a year for the license. If the government decides to revoke your license, you must immediately give all of your guns and ammo to the United States Attorney General or go to Federal prison. And as far as giving your child or grandchild that .22 rifle, or even letting them use yours, forget it. This bill will make it illegal. Period.

Here is a breakdown of what the new law requires in plain English, along with references to the sections:

1. Basic Gun Registration Requirements

These are the gun registry requirements for any gun you now own, or will ever own in the future:

  • For all of your guns, you must record in the gun registry “the make, model, and serial number of the firearm, the identity of the owner of the firearm, the date the firearm was acquired by the owner, and where the firearm is or will be stored” – § 932(b)(1)(A)

Establishment of Federal Gun Ownership Database

Currently, federal law prohibits the establishment of a federal gun registry. This is done in the 2nd sentence of § 926(a). What this new law does, however, is specifically deletes this sentence to allow this new federal gun registry, contained in this bill, can be established. Here is the text:

(A) ELIMINATION OF PROHIBITION ON ESTABLISHMENT OF CENTRALIZED FIREARM REGISTRATION SYSTEM.—Section 926(a) of such title is amended by striking the 2nd sentence.

7. Denial of License

  • You WILL BE denied a license if you have EVER been hospitalized with a mental illness, disturbance, or diagnosis”, substance abuse (including alcohol), or were declared a danger to yourself or others. – § 932(c)(3)(A)

In short, you can be denied owning a gun and ammo if a psychologist thinks you should not have one. Are you ex-military or law enforcement? Do you oppose big government? Do you disagree with the ruling far-left? Then you can expect to be declared “a danger to yourself or others” and prohibited from owning guns or ammo.

8. Losing Your License

  • If you lose your license, you must immediately give all of your guns and ammunition to the Attorney General

9. License Renewals

You must renew your license every year for the first 5 years (§ 932(c)(6)(A)) then every 3 years (§ 932(c)(6)(B))

10. Military-Style Weapons

Every ‘scary-looking’ rifle, pistol, or shotgun is considered a “military-style weapon”:

Anything that LOOKS like any of the following guns, no matter what the caliber, is a “military-style weapon” –  932(d)(2)(A)

When communists on the left tell you they plan on taking your guns and forcing you to bend the knee, you need to take them at their word. The only need for a gun registry is to enable gun confiscations. Make no mistake, if this law passes and a federal gun registry goes into effect, gun confiscation is next. Only a tyrannical government needs to disarm its citizens.
