NRA: Dems’ New Gun Bill w/ Mandatory Registry, Ammo Bans Among the Most ‘Outrageous’ Yet

'H.R. 127 is so outrageous, persecutory, and unworkable that its main function is simply to display the hostility of its author...'

A Democratic bill introduced in the House of Representatives this month would create a mandatory registry listing the names of gun owners, how many guns they have and where they keep their firearms.

The bill, H.R. 127, would also ban several types of commonly used ammunition: .50 caliber or greater. And, gun owners would be required to purchase firearm insurance costing $800 per year and complete a psychological evaluation and government training course before purchasing a weapon.

If they refuse to comply with these regulations, gun owners could face up to 10 years in prison and/or fines of $50,000 to $150,000.

Sponsored by Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, the bill is one of the most aggressive gun control proposals yet, said the National Rifle Association.

“All gun control bills share the same basic goal: a world in which fewer people own firearms,” the gun-rights group said in a statement.

It noted that in the past, the Left’s assaults on Second-Amendment rights have targeted one of two approaches: either ban weapons and munition outright or place prohibitive obstacles in the way of obtaining and owning them.

“H.R. 127 combines both failed approaches,” said the NRA statement. “It bans common types of ammunition and original equipment magazines for most self-defense firearms. And, it makes all firearms more difficult to obtain and possess through a punitive licensing and registration scheme.”

President Joe Biden has not commented on Jackson Lee’s bill, but he has promised to make gun control a priority for his administration.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki even confirmed this week that Biden “hasn’t ruled out” using executive action to implement gun control regulations.

She said Biden has a “range of actions at his disposal.”

The NRA vowed to fight H.R. 127 if it were ever passed into law, slamming it as an egregious violation of Americans’ gun rights.

“H.R. 127 is so outrageous, persecutory, and unworkable that its main function is simply to display the hostility of its author and supporters toward firearms, those who own them, and those who want to own them,” the group said.
