In just 24 hours after being sworn in, Democrats in the 117th Congress have already introduced legislation towards their promises of gun confiscation. Radical leftist Democrats Sheila Jackson Lee and Al Green, both from Houston, Texas, submitted four bills directly aimed at attacking legal gun owners. The titles of each speak for themselves:
H.R.121 – To provide for the hiring of 200 additional Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents and investigators to enforce gun laws.
H.R.125 – To amend title 18, United States Code, to provide for a 7-day waiting period before a semiautomatic firearm, a silencer, armor piercing ammunition, or a large capacity ammunition magazine may be transferred.
H.R.127 – To provide for the licensing of firearm and ammunition possession and the registration of firearms, and to prohibit the possession of certain ammunition.
H.R.130 – To require the safe storage of firearms and ammunition, and to require the investigation of reports of improper storage of firearms or ammunition.
Gun Confiscation Requires Gun Registration
In 1931, the Weimar authorities in Germany enacted gun registration requirements. In 1933, Adolph Hitler took over and used those registration records to confiscate firearms from everyone considered a political opponent. From 1933 to 1938, Hitler and his National Socialist party banned private gun clubs, jailed their leaders, and ensured “undesirable” were put into labor camps. Gun confiscation was easy once everyone was required to register their firearms for “safety reasons”.
Once that was completed in 1938 Hitler needed a critical event to push things even further. He got that when a teenage Jew in Paris shot a German diplomat, and on November 9, 1938, Kristallnacht, or Night of Broken Glass, was put into action. Because Jews had already been disarmed when they followed the law and registered their weapons, thus allowing gun confiscation, there was minimal resistance. It was then decreed that any Jew possessing a firearm was to serve 20 years in a concentration camp. Tens of thousands of Jews were now instantly criminals and sent to concentration camps where many perished.
History shows us that every time firearm registration is enacted, its sole purpose has been to enable the government to impose gun confiscation, there is no reason for a list of gun owners and their guns other than to know who to visit and what to take from them. It took Democrats less than 24 hours to submit their first four bills in their ongoing war against the Second Amendment and the American people’s right to own firearms. We see that history is already repeating itself.
As of this writing, no text of any of the proposed legislation has not been released, but Omnia News will report on them as soon as they become available. Be sure to check out our coverage on the fight against gun control on Capitol Hill here and here.
