Who’s Up For A DOJ Issued License For Their Guns?

The devil is in the details, and, I’m sure the DOJ will get those licenses to you really fast, right?

Senate Democrats propose DOJ license requirement for gun purchases

A trio of senators plan to introduce legislation on Thursday that will require residents to acquire a Department of Justice (DOJ) license before purchasing or obtaining a legal firearm.

The bill would also raise the legal age for obtaining a firearm to 21 years old.

The bill was introduced by Sens. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), Bob Menendez (D-N.J.) and Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.).

It has virtually no chance of becoming law given GOP opposition, but gives a sense of the breadth of restrictions on gun access that some lawmakers would favor imposing in the wake of years of mass shootings in the nation.

If it has zero chance of becoming law, why bother? This only makes their unhinged gun grabbing base happy. Raising the legal age? That would receive a lawsuit the minute it was passed.

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.

Personally, I’m not against taking a firearms safety course as part of the normal local/county process, but, exactly how would that help with the wackjobs like the Buffalo shooter, who is mentioned earlier in the article? You already get a background check to get a firearms permit, which breaks down when law enforcement and others do nor report. Fingerprints? Hell no. Proof of identity? That’s interesting, since Democrats do not want to do the same for voting. But, most of the time you have to show identification to buy one/apply for permit.

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.

How about enforcing all the existing laws? Starting with reporting to the FBI who provide the background checks.

    No! And Hell NO!
    There should be No license required for any stated right of a Citizen of the United States. As far as identification and or proof of citizenship, ‘If for one right, then uniformly for all, no exceptions’. I think the left might want to reconsider some of their positions. Yet again, this is another scheme pushing towards the third box of freedom.

    With more and more people buying guns this is going to hurt anyone in Congress voting yes on this bill just as voting for the $40B Ukraine Bill is upsetting all people off.
