Federal Registration and Licensing of Firearms

The Democrats now in power aren't wasting any time in moving forward with their anti-gun agenda.  There has been a bill introduced in the House which would establish national registration and licensing requirements for firearms possession (not merely purchase!); and almost as a by-the-way includes criminal penalties for failing to report a stolen firearm within 72 hours, failing to store a firearm in such a way that it can't be stolen, fingerprinting of firearms owners, a written test before the firearms license is issued, and god only knows what else.

The only good news in this picture is that the bill has only no co-sponsors.  That means support for it is low... at least for now.  These things can pick up momentum in a hurry.

Make no mistake, this is the 11:59 bill.  If this one passes, the next one will be "Mr-and-Mrs-America, turn them all in."
