    Gun control bills that you have not heard much about

    PJ Media » 5 Gun-Control Bills You Haven’t Heard of Yet
    from that article:

    H.R. 236: Crackdown on Deadbeat Gun Dealers Act of 2013
    Rep. Jim Langevin (D-R.I.) introduced this bill to increase the number of annual Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) at gun dealers from one to three and increase to five years the term of imprisonment for knowingly making a false statement or representation in required firearms records. Dealers selling or otherwise disposing of any firearm or ammunition to any person knowing or having reasonable cause to believe that such person is prohibited from possessing a firearm could face up to 10 years behind bars.

    H.R. 332: Equal Access to Justice for Victims of Gun Violence Act
    Rep. Adam Schiff’s (D-Calif.) bill would remove barriers to civil liability for gun manufacturers, dealers and gun-rights interest groups, overriding 2005′s Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act. Schiff theorizes that if gun manufacturers, shops, and even the NRA cared more about being sued, they’d promote more gun-control measures. He worked with the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence to draft the legislation.

    H.R. 868: Safer Neighborhoods Gun Buyback Act of 2013
    Rep. Donald Payne (D-N.J.) is proposing a two-year $360 million grant to the Department of Justice that would give gun owners prepaid debit cards in return for turning over firearms. The qualifying guns would be ones, according to the bill, most used in crimes: Smith and Wesson .38 revolver, Smith and Wesson .40 semiautomatic pistol, Haskell Hi-Point JHP 45 semiautomatic pistol, Iberia Firearm JCP40 pistol, Ruger 9 mm semiautomatic pistol, Hi-Point CF380 .380 semiautomatic pistol, Raven Arms .25 semiautomatic pistol, Mossberg 12 gauge shotgun, Smith and Wesson 9mm semiautomatic pistol, Smith and Wesson .357 revolver, Bryco Arms 9mm semiautomatic pistol, Bryco Arms .380 semiautomatic pistol, Davis Industries .380 semiautomatic pistol, and Cobra FS380 .38 semiautomatic pistol.

    H.R.965: To prohibit the possession or transfer of junk guns, also known as Saturday Night Specials
    “It shall be unlawful for any person to possess or transfer a junk gun which has been shipped or transported in interstate or foreign commerce,” states this bill. What does Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) mean by a “junk” gun? “A handgun that is not a sporting handgun,” the brief text of the legislation says. Sporting handgun would mean “a type generally recognized as particularly suitable for or readily adaptable to sporting purposes.”

    H.R.538: Protect Law Enforcement Armor (PLEA) Act
    Rep. Eliot Engel’s (D-N.Y.) bill is seemingly weapon-specific, vowing “to protect the Nation’s law enforcement officers by banning the Five-seveN Pistol and 5.7 x 28mm SS190, SS192, SS195LF, SS196, and SS197 cartridges.”

    But it also prohibits “any other handgun that uses ammunition found to be capable of penetrating body armor.” Body armor would mean anything that “meets minimum standards for the protection of law enforcement officers.”

    This is only quotes from the article, there is much more.

    Also there is this proposal on mandating insurance:

    Democrats propose $10,000 fine for gun owners who don't have insurance | The Daily Caller

    The big thing would be that the anti gun folks then would have the ability to sue not only the gun owners but go after manufacturers and even civil liberty organizations such as the NRA (or even the ACLU).

    THIS CANNOT BE RIGHT --ALL OF THE PROPOSALS ARE BY DEMOCRATS!!!!!!

    I posted the 10G fine earlier, but like shotgunner Joe said, this is just the beginning. They are knocking on the backdoor and there are plenty more proposals flying under the radar that we are unaware of. Vigilance is the word and NO COMPROMISE is the fight!!!

    Thanks for the info!!!!!

    Already sent the politicians e-mails on all of those. I encourage everyone else to do the same.

    And, of course you know who's pushing for the liability insurance bill, and it's NOT the politicians.

    What would that prevent?
    Is your gun protection or comfort?

    As they say: "elections have consequences". The voters of those states seem to like those kinds of politicians. They're getting exactly what they voted for.

    That can't be right. We're often told by some that there's no significant difference between "D" and "R".

    Why are there no assault weapons on the list? Think of the children.
