If You're a Gun Owner

I will not take a political stance on this. I'll be ostracized by the forum and its Admins. This is strictly an FYI.

If you own a gun, you may want to make yourself familiar with House Resolution 5717 (HR5717). You can find it online. Some highlights of the resolution:
  • 30% tax on all guns, 50% tax on all ammo. Both will require federal license to purchase.
  • Federal license to own, handle or shoot a gun.

It's not a law, and has no chance of getting through the Senate...

It does have an exemption for retired law enforcement officers(for those out there).

A quick scan of the resolution text (https://www.congress.gov/bill/116th-...bill/5717/text) finds a bunch of potential 10th Amendment problems.

If it bill somehow makes it thru Congress before the Congressional Term ends January 3, 2021 there is a high probability the current resident of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave will probably veto it.

Therein lies a problem too. They can lay in wait and be brought up numerous times (reintroduced).

It may not get past this Senate and Administration but that doesn't mean it's over. This stuff never 'dies', it hibernates.

You have to stay vigilant and continue paying attention.

From a personal standpoint...I hope I'm dead and gone when/if it comes to that. Most of them can't wipe their own %^#, never mind paying attention to something like this.

Sorry, this is not 'dead as a door nail'. If gets shot down, it lays in wait for the next perceived opportunity. You can take that to the bank.

The move to put this in law wont go away, not a chance

Look at what is going on because of the liberal media and Congress

Times are changing and it so sad

Just watched Grant which makes you wonder what would those soldiers think of the current BS?

Careful. You turn this into something political, it'll just get shutdown. Make your point in a more subtle way.

It's sad you can't speak your mind here but you have to stick to facts or all who might benefit from a post will fall under the Admins radar who look through their own lens. They have the power, and will, to you shut you down if they disagree with your position on a topic. Just ask around.

That said, they have been somewhat fair however, in a recent post where one person thought they should dominate and dictate a thread's content, they were appeased. Be careful.

Yes, the times have changed

Looks like the first thing has already happened in pushing towards new regulations and that is to drive certain cost of ownership higher

All we can do is vote and encourage others of like mind to as eell

I'm also a NRA and Buckeye Firearms member, which adds more voices in our favor.
