Spotlight Falls on Red-State Democrats as a New Gun Fight Brews in Congress our friends at thetrace.org predicts. They ain’t just whistling Dixie — if only because The Trace is a New York City-based operation. Founded and funded by the “gun-free” zone’s former Mayor Michael Bloomberg. Whose Everytown for Gun Safety sent out this text blast:
I’ve yet to see any coordinated action for The Constitutional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017 from the GOA, NRA, SAFE or any other of the usual gun rights groups. Huzzahs, yes. Appeals for public support, no. I suppose they’re keeping their powder dry.
Let’s hope they have plenty of powder. This is the big one folks. The single most important piece of gun rights legislation since the following [wikipedia-sourced] abominations (no pun intended):
National Firearms Act (“NFA”) (1934): Taxes the manufacture and transfer of, and mandates the registration of Title II weapons such as machine guns, short-barreled rifles and shotguns, heavy weapons, explosive ordnance, silencers, and disguised or improvised firearms.
Federal Firearms Act of 1938 (“FFA”): Requires that gun manufacturers, importers, and persons in the business of selling firearms have a Federal Firearms License (FFL). Prohibits the transfer of firearms to certain classes of persons, such as convicted felons.
Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act of 1968 (1968): Prohibited interstate trade in handguns, increased the minimum age to 21 for buying handguns.
Gun Control Act of 1968 (“GCA”): Focuses primarily on regulating interstate commerce in firearms by generally prohibiting interstate firearms transfers except among licensed manufacturers, dealers and importers.
Firearm Owners Protection Act (“FOPA”) (1986): Revised and partially repealed the Gun Control Act of 1968. Prohibited the sale to civilians of automatic firearms manufactured after the date of the law’s passage. Required ATF approval of transfers of automatic firearms.
Gun-Free School Zones Act (1990): Prohibits unauthorized individuals from knowingly possessing a firearm at a place that the individual knows, or has reasonable cause to believe, is a school zone.
