So Tightens the Totalitarian Grip

A new House Bill has been introduced: The Firearms Licensing and Registration Act". Mental health exams, insurance, various types of firearms are singled out.
It’s going to be easier to run for Congress than it is to own a firearm.
As long as we are checking mental health background maybe we check the mental health of Congress. But that would be moot. My favorite Mark Twain -let’s say you’re an idiot. Let’s say you’re a member of Congress-but I repeat myself.
They know its unconstitutional and they are in violation of their sacred oath to defend the constitution. Their acts are and continue to be treason.
I almost hope it passes and incites a military coup. The political class all need their necks stretched.
The question is whether or not this proposed law will trigger serious resistance if passed. The more damaging effort is likely to be waiving gun manufacturers' protection against being sued. That alone could destroy the American arms manufacturing industry. As usual with such efforts, it will likely inspire replacement by smuggling and domestic production of "ghost" guns and ammunition.
An alternative is improvements in airgun technology. These unregulated weapons are now capable of taking down big game, with some being credible sniper weapons, much quieter than even suppressed conventional firearms. Quick change compressed air "magazines" and projectile chargers could make these as effective as the feared "assault" weapons Biden seeks to ban.
Years ago we law abiding citizens would be angered when it took 4-6 weeks to get the card. It is now running past 7-9 months depending on who you talked to last.
Then we have our Concealed Carry License. CCL. It requires a FOID.
16 hours of classroom. Actual live fire scoring on the range. $200 for the classes, $150 for the actual CCL -wait time right now is 9 months. Again admin by ISP. You can probably read our minds when we jump through all of these hoops just to exercise a right we already have while-the ISP was spending their time enforcing our gov restaurant closures for covid.
One of the main things I learned in the classes was all of the options the government already has to confiscate firearms. Not radicals grousing about the government this or the gov that but actual on the book infringements.
If your girl friend boy friend ex spouse tells the authorities you’re nuts then you’re nuts and the guns go away.
They have the right (HIPPA?) to obtain medical records. If you tell your doc you’ve been feeling blue. Bye bye guns. This is not a crazy guy running from black helicopters. These laws are already there.
Anybody here try to buy any 9mm ammo lately? The most popular caliber in the WORLD!
Same issue with domestic (anything) et al. I was at my FFL who was lock-boxing dozens of firearms for a customer. HE was storing them for the guy who was in some kind of dispute with his significant other. Rather than have his potentially taken, he stored them with the FFL. (phuck you AG).
9mm shows up periodically for ~$0.50/round, here and there. You can buy a couple of boxes occasionally in NH. Target Sports USA has it sometimes, but you MUST sign up for their texts, and immediately (and I really mean immediately) buy when the text shows up. E-mail is too slow, and it will all be gone, every time.
OK now has constitutional carry and TX has been reducing the number of requirements for ownership (hubby was a CHL instructor, now can't make a nickel on classes, but he's not sorry!)
And Oh did I mention? Hubby starts his new job in TEXAS on March 8, and I'll be joining him as fast as I can get the freeze/water damage fixed on the house. So, Texas, we're coming home!
Right now the only issues for me in MA are the pistols list, 10 round mags, and 94-ban rules (excl pre bans). I have an LTC already. Issued town-by-town. My town is very firearm friendly.
I can't imagine why you chose Venezuela. Share your selection criteria?
OTOH, Australia wouldn't look kindly on 5 million Americans 'invading' (or asking for political asylum.;^)
I question Venezuela's military strength and power continuity. One could invade from within. But it is a hypothetical discussion.
Yes, it is hypothetical.
It's an admittedly biased sample, but my interactions with Venezuelans is that they hate their gov't. A Venezuelan waiter working in Central America told me "I don't know much about politics, but when they say 'socialism' it means 'no jobs'." It was the same with cab drivers. It's amazing how many people working low-level jobs are Venezuelan. I could see a scenario where after years of socialism, they're willing to adopt radical reforms, maybe with a large zona franca with laissez-faire policies.
Just for Thoritsu:
Thoritsu: "you have never functioned in the business world. Maybe we’ll try yes/no, but I lack the incentive."
CG: Even if someone created a utopia of liberty you'd still be you, but you wouldn't be able to blame your failures on others. It would lay bare what a joke of a person you are.
Just throwing rocks is evidence of a lack of self confidence, nothing more. Oh, and before you toss in an out of context quote from months/years ago... lets rather have a real discussion disclosing your real views, or just arm wrestle. My guess is you are game for neither...boy.
Apparently more than tough enough for you mentally. With respect to hiding behind a screen name ... Well punk, you know my name, and location, since you and I have corresponded outside this forum. That was before we figured out you were a trolling socialist in disguise. If you want to press the issue, come on over and I’ll show you how I got my nickname.
