Here’s what is at stake:
H.R. 8. This bill would criminalize every transfer of a firearm unless it first goes through a government screening process — aka, gun owner registration — or unless the transfer fulfills one of the very few exemptions in the legislation. NOTE: Because “transfer” is not defined, even handing a gun to a neighbor could be severely punished.
H.R. 1446. This bill would subject law-abiding gun owners to indefinite delays for those who are seeking FBI permission to purchase a firearm.
Anti-gun Attorney General. In the Senate, virulent anti-gunner Merrick Garland will receive a confirmation vote on his nomination for Attorney General. Garland has supported a ban on semi-automatic firearms and says he has “no opinion” on whether the FBI can indefinitely delay firearms purchases!
