A group of Democrats in Congress have filed legislation that seeks to set highly restrictive standards for handgun ownership.

The Handgun Licensing and Registration Act of 2021, if passed, will make it a requirement that any handgun owner be over the age of 21 and get a license. This license would require that any would-be handgun owner give a copy of their fingerprints/photos over to the government, clear a background check, and complete an approved firearms training class. This license would also have to be renewed every 5 years.

From Guns.com 

“Our government requires registration and basic standards for voting, operating a vehicle, even opening a business,” said U.S. Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman, a New Jersey Democrat who is a sponsor of the bill. “Yet, for weapons created with the single intent to take a life, we have developed a dangerous aversion to any mechanism to understand where and with whom these weapons reside.”

Going past the licensing requirement, the bill would direct the U.S. Attorney General to establish a system for the “registration of all handguns owned, possessed, or controlled in the United States.”

Penalties for non-compliance would include fines and the possibility of imprisonment.

The glaring problem with implementation is that the proposal’s scope may be impossible due to the simple scale of how many handguns are in American homes.

Like most gun legislation this targets you! The law abiding citizen. Criminals who routinely use handguns in crime likely acquired their handgun’s illegally, criminals are not going to follow this law just as they did not follow the law while getting a handgun.

This is a national gun registration scheme, disguised as a license.

This twit is retarded we have no privilege of handgun (OR LONG gun) ownership…. we have a guaranteed right under the constitution…. and a registration would be Illegal…. as for me I have one since the Nics became law ( I just hadda have an autoloader ) everything else is pre-nics some do not even have serials and never did. and some are considered “not a weapon” under 18 USC as well as State penal code

we should actually give up on gun Control, and start Criminal control…. think you are a badass, lock all armed convicts in an Old Yuma style prison no T.V., no A/c, no computers, no news from outside, eat what you are served and bust rocks and farm all day, Take a life get hanged, period full stop.

Anyone support today’s Democrat Crime Organization is supporting Marxist Tyrants with a Pol Pot Tyranny mentality. All of the Founders declared the Bill of Rights a documentation of GOD Given Rights no person shall tamper with or infringe upon. All laws hampering Citizens from owning and carrying the weapons of their choice are illegal and treasonous. The government is our servant and not our ruler. We divested ourselves of all rulers with the Revolution of 1776. Are we going to have to start a new one???

I’m 60, in declining health, with an end that will be protracted and pain wracked. Dying in a hail of gunfire promises a cleaner and quicker death.
I will not comply, and I’ll take as many Geheime Staatspolizei with me as I can.

God Save Our Republic!
