Senate Democrats Propose DOJ License Requirement for Gun Owners

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.

The criminals and thugs creating all of the murder and terrorist mischief have no reason to register their guns, or fingerprints, or any other factor which the “Politicals” are designating as the cause of “killing crimes”.
If I, as a “law abiding citizen and 30 year NRA supporter”, get caught without the required registration and other “safety factors” do I also start without penalty as do the criminals ??
Who knows where the “follow the money” trail would lead if they looked for it– from the crimes to the “Against America Liberals” seeking to destroy this great country. I say hold tight to your personal protection devices……….
Do not shoot to wound — AND do not register your knives and baseball bats if requested because they are coming after those next !!! – They have to because they will not pass this type of weapons legislation into the full country of America.

LAMike– over and out !!

There’s already a background check performed and most criminals who do these terrible crimes are not going to conform to any law! Democrats just want to control everything and everyone with their government overreach.

The Constitution doesn’t give them this authority – the only way to legally pull this off is to change the Constitution and that’s not going to happen – lets go Brandon

So they want people to get fingerprinted and show proper ID to buy a gun, but not to vote.

Total virtue signaling. They know it will never pass the Senate where it would require 60 votes to pass. There are some members of the Democrat party who wouldn’t sign it anyway or they would lose their next election. They know this will not pass, but are playing to their constituents.

A requirement for Americans to obtain a Federal license in order to own a firearm clearly violates the 2nd Amendment guarantee of the right to keep and bear arms, which the Supreme Court has found applies to individual citizens. This is gun-grabber grandstanding at its worst.

Tell Spartacus, (Booker), Criminal (Menendez) and Blumenthal to collectively go pound sand! The Dems hypocrisy knows no bounds. If anyone of these goons has a security detail, you can bet they are geared out with the most elite and up to date arms. Yet they expect law abiding and qualified gun owning Americans to jump through political hoops for personal self defense.
