Two Illinois Democrat lawmakers are introducing bills in Congress that would require all gun owners to be licensed by the federal government and all gun sales to be tracked, according to Freedom Outpost. The Blair Holt Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act denies the basic freedoms given by God and tramples on the Bill of Rights.
Rep. Bobby Rush of Chicago introduced the bill in the House of Representatives and Sen. Tammy Duckworth of Illinois is bringing forward a similar measure in the Senate. If either bill passes and becomes law, it would allow the federal government to establish a national registry for all gun owners.
It would also allow for all gun sales in the country to be tracked by the government.
Americans don’t need a license to own a firearm — a right guaranteed to citizens under the U.S. Constitution — just like people aren’t required to obtain a license to exercise their right to free speech, which is also guaranteed under the Constitution.
Democrats are completely oblivious to the hypocrisy of their efforts, and there are many issues with these bills that should scare everyone who values liberty.
The bills from Rush and Duckworth are molded after the Illinois Firearm Owners Identification Card statute, which was an utter failure and one of many disastrous policies brought forward by democrats to erode the Second Amendment.
Chicago has been one of the most violent cities in America for many years, and its gun laws would only further endanger Americans and give criminals more power.
The Act would require all gun owners to apply for a permit with the federal government for each firearm they owned. They would be required to carry an “identification card” with them showing that they legally owned the weapon.
Also, the measures would allow the federal government to collect information and track all gun sales and purchases in the country.
If either bill becomes law, it will undoubtedly hamper the rights of all law-abiding citizens and give even more power to the federal government.
These bills will also cost taxpayers millions of dollars and create even more bureaucracy.
They would be just as effective (doing nothing) as other measures introduced by democrats, such as universal background checks, “gun free zones,” banning “assault weapons,” and limiting how much ammunition citizens can purchase.
Democrats are willfully oblivious to logic and their own hypocrisy. They want to erode the Second Amendment because they claim to care about protecting lives, yet they are staunch supporters of abortion clinics, who kill hundreds of thousands of innocent babies every year.
This is just the latest scathing attempt by liberals to erase the Second Amendment and take even more rights away from Americans.
