Three Senate Democrats plan to introduce legislation that would require residents to obtain a Justice Department license before buying a firearm.

The bill, crafted by Sens. Cory Booker, Bob Menendez, and Richard Blumenthal, would also raise the legal age for obtaining a firearm to 21 years old.

The Hill reports:

According to the bill text, the Federal Firearm Licensing Act will require residents to complete a written firearm safety test and hands-on testing, which includes firing testing, to get the license to acquire a firearm.

The license will also require those wanting to buy a gun to submit a criminal background check, fingerprints and proof of identity.

In a statement to Politico, which first reported the legislation, Booker said this is the time to “enact ambitious legislation” on this ongoing issue.

“This is the moment to enact ambitious legislation – as a nation, we must rise to it, or we are fated to witness the deadly scenes of this past weekend and years past over again,” Booker said in a statement.

The bill is nearly certain to fail due to Republican opposition but underscores the extreme lengths some Democrats will go to in regard to gun control legislation

So somebody tell me…what is the point of having another law requiring a person to pass a criminal background check & ID to purchase a firearm? It’s already required to have those things before purchasing a gun.

A ploy to obtain a record of owners so confiscation would be easier for a corrupt government.

You are so right. Law enforcement always takes the EASIEST path when investigating a crime committed with a gun. “Go to the Smith house and question them. They own guns.” Gun owners will be the first ones accused because that’s Law 101.

That’s their answer to the crime problem! How about catch the criminal, prosecute and send to jail. Never had a gun that fired itself! It’s not the gun dummy, it’s the individual. Damn, I must be racist!
