The 117th Congress has started busily filing bills. None of the text is available yet, but the bill titles are informative. This what I’ve found to date. All of these are in the House. As of this writing nothing directly affecting Second Amendment rights appears to have been filed in the Senate.

H.R.225 – To amend chapter 44 of title 18, United States Code, to more comprehensively address the interstate transportation of firearms or ammunition.

This was filed by Republican Rep. Griffin [VA-9], so I’m hoping it’s a fix for the safe passage provisions of FOPA.

H.R.194 – To require the Inspector General, Department of Justice, to submit a report to the Congress on the number of firearm transaction denials issued by the National Instant Criminal Background Check System that are referred to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives for investigation, the number of prosecutions resulting from such investigations, and the number of firearms recovered by the Bureau in cases in which such a denial was issued after the firearm was transferred.

That sounds innocuous, but one never knows.

H.R.167 – To prohibit the transfer of a firearm at a gun show by a person who is not a federally licensed firearms dealer.

Ah, the “gun show loophole” again.

H.R.135 – To require the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation to report to the Congress semiannually on the number of firearms transfers resulting from the failure to complete a background check within 3 business days, and the procedures followed after it is discovered that a firearm transfer has been made to a transferee who is ineligible to receive a firearm.

Seems duplicative, what with H.R. 194.

H.R.130 – To require the safe storage of firearms and ammunition, and to require the investigation of reports of improper storage of firearms or ammunition.

The investigation requirement looks to particularly nasty, as it seems to chuck probable cause right out the window.

H.R.127 – To provide for the licensing of firearm and ammunition possession and the registration of firearms, and to prohibit the possession of certain ammunition.

Given the looming Dem control of House, Senate, and White House, and their proven lack of care for what people think, I strongly suspect this will pass. I wonder if they asked cops how they feel about risking life and limb to enforce it.

H.R.125 – To amend title 18, United States Code, to provide for a 7-day waiting period before a semiautomatic firearm, a silencer, armor piercing ammunition, or a large capacity ammunition magazine may be transferred.

Hey! Maybe they’ll reduce the waiting period for silencers to seven days. Alas, I’m thinking this additional wait would come after the ~nine-month registration wait.

H.R.121 – To provide for the hiring of 200 additional Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents and investigators to enforce gun laws.

Joy. Like we need more kitty-stompers.

H.R.95 – To amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to remove silencers from the definition of firearms, and for other purposes.

Sadly, that will never pass. That will never make it out of committee.

H.R.60 – To protect the right of law-abiding citizens to transport knives interstate, notwithstanding a patchwork of local and State prohibitions, and to repeal Federal provisions related to switchblade knives which burden citizens.

It’s not guns, but it is 2A. All things considered, I’d give this a 50:50 chance.

H.R.38 – To amend title 18, United States Code, to provide a means by which nonresidents of a State whose residents may carry concealed firearms may also do so in the State.

National reciprocity. Snowball, meet Hell.

H.R.30 – To increase public safety by punishing and deterring firearms trafficking.

I’d sure like to see the text. Is Rush [D-IL-1] actually unaware that trafficking is already illegal?

Here’s one that isn’t specifically 2A-related, but it did catch my eye. It’s from DC Rep. Norton [D-DC], so I expect it’s a duplicate of her 116th Congress bill. I’ve included this here because I think everyone can see that admitting DC as a state would permanently lock in Democrat control of the country, with the growing threat to firearm rights:

H.R.51 – To provide for the admission of the State of Washington, D.C. into the Union.

Ms. Norton seems to be unaware that the District’s status is controlled by the Constitution. Last session, it was pointless because it did not include a Constitutional amendment. This time around, it could happen since we’ve seen that there pretty much isn’t a Constitution anymore.

I’d wish you a Happy New Year, but this feels like December 38, 2020.

        • The nation will be lucky id the Communist party of the US doesn’t repeal the Constitution,as there at least 3 replacements that I’m aware of in waiting. All some useful idiots have to do is sell a Article V/Con Con and it’s good bye America as a republic.
          God save America from ourselves.

      • You voted for more pointless forever wars and corporate nepotism, you certainly are a winner lol.

      • Why do you have a need to antagonize? Is this to bolster your ego to make up for your feelings of being inferior and inadequate?

      • My vote will count as much as any small rifle caliber. Sic semper tyrannis 223/5.56 in 2021. It will last much longer than retard Joe or Cummala.

      • TRUMP 2020! TRUMP 2024! TRUMP 2028! TRUMP 2032! TRUMP 2036! TRUMP PRESIDENT FOR LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Yeah I guess the government gets really butthurt when they’re the ones subject to a no knock raid 🤣

  1. >their proven lack of care for what people think
    And we shouldn’t care what they think.

    • Most of us don’t care what they think, but that doesn’t obviate the fact that they are backed up by state violence, and they won’t hesitate to use it.

  2. Need pro-gun folks to fill in those ATF positions. We need allies to subvert and blow the whistle within the ATF when they come to town to enforce anti-gun shenanigans. We need to fight back smarter and preemptively.

    And peacefully where we can.

    …everything else just looks silly and easily dodged in the real world. Then again the devil is in the details.

  3. H.R. 130 = A “Re-Titled” Red Flag Law, and is away to Charge People with a crime via entrapment, and it can all come from a False Accusation like the ERPO’s.

    Someone says you’ve got guns laying around the house that aren’t in a safe (Social Media Posts of your Firearms for example), you’ll have the Cops kicking down your door.

    Use a firearm in Self-Defense during a Home-Invasion, then you’ll be charged with a Felony Crime of violating Storage Laws, as was done in Washington DC before 2008.

  4. To all those who bitched about Trump & bump stock bans, well ya’ll got your wish.
    Now you can bask in the mud & live under a more fitting rule of law for you. Now you can stop your bitching!

      • Notice how none of those people ever openly post now? Think they finally realized how stupid they were.

        • *They’re too. Grammar matters, especially when you’re trying to insult someone else’s intelligence.
          I won’t call you stupid, maybe ignorant. You may not have been taught the difference.

    • Things went pretty well the last few years for 2A rights in so many ways people got soft. They thought it was irreversible.
      They were wrong.

    • You’re welcome to complain all you want now Bubs. No one will hear you anyway once we complete the purge. Behave yourself and we might let you stay. Enjoy the unity!

      • Bullshit.

        We’ll ALL get what we *don’t* deserve when China Joe and Commie laWhorish weaponize the stupidly shortsighted precedent that President Trump established with his bumpstock action. In case you haven’t been paying attention over the past 20 years, that’s how it works: idiot Republicans create the toolkit thinking they’ll fight evil, and evil Democrats weaponize it against all of us.

        Besides which, if those of us who complained about it deserved to watch Trump lose, then how is it that the rest of you got exactly the same thing? I voted for Trump…if I deserved whatever it is I got for it, then you all did, too.

        • Established? If The POTUS did not do something Congress certainly would have and their to do list was very long. So when you see binary triggers, etc. advertised on this forum you can thank POTUS DJT. Consult Allen Gottlieb for a more detailed explanation.

    • People in general are stupid. We all need to feel the hurt until people wise up. I had hopes for a bloodless course correction but it was not to be. The country is on its last leg and we can just get ready for the mass migration of libtards from the towns they will destroy. 2021s phrase of the day just might be “crowd control”.

  5. Best I can say is that we squeeze Tester and Manchin as hard as we can, but you’d think SAF and all that would be pushing hard to recall Manchin in WV and replace him with a republican. They’ve got more than enough ability to pull that off there.

    • Sir I don’t think you thought this through.

      1) I don’t think WV has a means to recall a US Senator. But let’s say the do.

      2) Schumer is now majority leader. If Manchin is replaced by a republican he would no longer hold that position. Therefore he simply prevents him from being sworn in to the senate maintaining the status of his position as majority leader.

  6. Yup, nipping around the edges to see how much we’ll stand for in the name of “public safety”! Only reason they’re not balls to the wall already is the gun purchase numbers over the past couple years.

  7. H.R.194 – To prosecute as “fugitive from justice” anyone who has an outstanding traffic citation (perhaps a tail light out) in a state where they do not currently reside.

    H.R.135 – To create the “need” to be able to delay a transfer indefinitely.

    H.R.130 – To expand “red flag” law to enable an ex parte warrant issuance for any firearm or accessory report by any snitchy person.


    • “H.R.130 – To require the safe storage of firearms and ammunition, and to require the investigation of reports of improper storage of firearms or ammunition.”

      That should only require 8 to 10 years to be struck down as unconstitutional.

      Until then… 🙁

  8. Don’t worry everyone, the My Pillow Guy is investigating ‘the steal’. With that hero on the case, the Republic will soon be saved. MAGA for 1000 years!

  9. Sponsor
    Rep. Jackson Lee, Sheila [D-TX-18] (Introduced 01/04/2021)

    ………….H.R.130 – To require the safe storage of firearms and ammunition, and to require the investigation of reports of improper storage of firearms or ammunition……………..

    This one is ugly I bet. Just look at who put it forth. She has always been full on crazy IMO.

  10. The 2A is useless. We just sat back and with them steal a presidential election and did nothing. What will it take to invoke it?

    • Did nothing to provide evidence of this alleged steal in the 60 or so court cases, at least.

    • No matter how passionately you believe your delusion, it is still not true.

      The Constitution provides for the election process, and sets the body of the supreme court as the ultimate arbiter of constitutionality.

      Upset conservatives petitioned the government for a redress of grievances over 60 times, and each time their complaints were found to have no merit or standing.

      Y’all had your day in court and lost.

      Then, conservative Trump supporters tried a coup, using violence to disrupt the constitutionally mandated election process, by violently attacking the United States Capitol during a joint session of Congress in an attempt to perpetuate the dictatorship of Donald Trump.

      Y’all lost that one as well.

      All that’s left now is for all good Americans to roll up the ringleaders of the failed insurrection, and sweep up the broken glass so we can get on with the business of governing America under the Constitution of the United States of America.

      But personally, I’m pretty excited about watching Sidney Powell get her Kraken spanked in civil court.

      • “…so we can get on with the business of governing America under the Constitution of the United States of America.”

        It’s obvious you don’t realize this (or more likely, don’t actually care), but that constitution you’re wrapping yourself in protects freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of assembly, the right to bear arms, the redress of grievances, and a host of other freedoms and rights that your friends on the left are actively engaged in trampling. You really ought to read the constitution before you don it like a skin suit and parade around in it like a serial killer.

        • You raise an excellent point on the “redress of grievances”.

          The internet is the public square of the 21st century, and protection of free speech there should be protected no different than the way a blatantly political newspaper broadsheet was protected in the late 1700s. Political discussion makes up a substantial part that medium.

          And there is now a monopoly directly attacking free speech…

  11. These were fully written up months ago. They launch them immediately. Just like Obamacare. The Dems have thier shit together. No question about it. Repubs are rank amateurs at best, and more probably, collaborators. This is why people who hold conservative values have lost. It’s all over but the birth pangs of a socialist existence in this country known as America. Sorry. It’s over. Apologies to Ben Franklin…we couldn’t keep it.

    • No, the left make a never ending stream of stupid mistakes as well. The can eff up even this circumstance. The pendulum always swings away from those governing because they cannot possibly deliver on their promises.

      • The left has their own civil war going on. They are not as United as the media tries to make it seem

        • “as the media tries to make it seem”

          The key to their existence right there. People began going around the media, but they’re trying to plug that hole.

    • They have stupid shit written up from 20 years ago. Like free housing for all, that’s from 2002 or 2003.

    • ATTN : Dan Z. –

      That comment wasn’t the real CoolBreeze…

        • Dan Z. asked, fuckwit, if you bothered to read his post on commenting policy on TTAG.

          He requested he be notified when imposters show up so their IPs can be banned.

          As far as I’m concerned, fuckwits like you should have their IPs banned as well, since you don’t debate, you just hurl little insults like a petulant 2 year-old pitching a tantrum… 🙂




      • It’s usually an insult based on middle-school level humor about butts.

        tRUMP, t-RUMP, t[RUMP].

        Like how some call Trump supporters “Rumpers” as if it’s somehow calling them a homosexual and as if anyone cares about gays in 2021.

        • “Like how some call Trump supporters “Rumpers” as if it’s somehow calling them a homosexual“

          How do you get that’s homosexual?

          Calling somebody a ‘rump’ is just another way to call them an ass, a term most on this forum use daily.

          It is kind of weird how you guys see homosexuality in almost everything, I imagine most chiefly though in the mirror for most of you.

        • I had forgotten about Bevis and Butthead. It’s a bit before my time honestly.

          The clip is apropos though.

  13. and a majority of it WILL PASS. The Republican’s dropped the ball, There should be a large movement to Make the public aware of what’s going on, but there won’t be.

    • Well, there’s the corny informercial produced by the SAF. It has all the tone of an infomercial selling car title loans at 2 in the morning.

    • “There should be a large movement to Make the public aware of what’s going on, but there won’t be.”

      Especially now that they’re going out of their way to *clean up* the interwebz. Google going after Parler for not having the “right” speech mods the same way they did with Zero Hedge awhile back… doesn’t bode well.

      On the plus side you won’t have to worry about it for too long. Pretty quick you’ll only get approved speech because no one’s going to do a goddamn thing to stop any of this.

      • “Especially now that they’re going out of their way to *clean up* the interwebz. Google going after Parler for not having the “right” speech mods the same way they did with Zero Hedge awhile back… doesn’t bode well.”

        Yep. Kinda strange how their argument was always “Twitter can ban you if they want, it’s a private business.” Well, they had a point there.

        Followed-up with “They can go start their own Twitter, Facebook, etc if they want to.” Another logical point.

        So they do just that. – Enter, conservative Parler.

        So they get Apple and Google to kill that app.

        That’s now overt suppression of legal free speech. They did exactly what they were told they can do.

        This road it taking a dangerous turn. If bad things start happening to silicon valley folks like that, It will be no different than what happened 200+ years ago, when a bunch of hicks in a distant colony demanded that their grievances were heard and the most powerful military got their asses handed to them in a hat…

        • Oh, they’re taking the ax to Reddit and Facebook as well. Even for groups not directly affiliated with Trump.. They nuked a lot of people on Twitter today, even people just doing legal analysis on the whole Flynn thing.

          Getting pretty wild on that front. Free speech on the net is basically dead if you don’t hold the correct beliefs.

          Oh well, I’m sure it will all work out for the best. I mean, how could it not, right?

        • Hey if you have a problem with it, you’re free to start your own twitter!

          What’s that? Parler’s being cancelled? Oops!

        • “Hey if you have a problem with it, you’re free to start your own twitter!

          What’s that? Parler’s being cancelled?”

          If it truly was a case of it being a private business decision, they should have had no problem whatsoever with Parler.

          The fact that they chose to do that exposes it wasn’t about the money after all. It was about stifling free speech itself. Ideas.

          They crossed a line when they went after Parler. Courts have been found in favor of the breaking up of monopolies when it is in the interest of the public good, and free exchange of ideas “In the Public Square” for all to see is in the public good.

          Unpopular or abhorrent speech is the very speech that requires the most legal protection.

          If Amazon can be forced to sell books on the pedophilia ‘grooming’ of underage boys for adult sex, (NAMBLA themes), we should force them to host content they find abhorrent.

          It’s time to nail their hypocritical “Tolerant and Accepting of all others not like themselves” hides to the side of the fucking barn.

          I’m tired of putting up with this shit…

        • “Free speech on the net is basically dead if you don’t hold the correct beliefs.”

          It may be time to legally force them to actually be as ‘Progressive’ as they claim to be, methinks…

        • “It may be time to legally force them…”

          SCOTUS can take the case… what, two days after it ceases to matter?

          Nah, bud. This isn’t going to be fixed in courts or Congress. It’s not going to be fixed at all because the only people who give a shit don’t care enough to actually do anything.

          As I’ve said here before; A bunch of people who can’t be bothered to pencil in a few hours a year for school board meetings are not going to do much of anything that’s useful.

  14. Where was HR 60 knife rights when they Republicans actually had some control of things? Or is this just a standard issue, always out there and ignored kind of bill? It would definitely be nice to repeal or standardize knife laws.

    • That, plus National Reciprocity, and Hearing Protection Act.

      Common Sense Laws that will fly through the legislative bodies and be signed into law in 2017, now that Republicans control both Houses and Trump controls the White House.

      In 2021?
      Not going to happen, but if 100,000 of us ask my Senators to support common sense, it’ll at least annoy their staffs.

      Let’s face it, Republicans respect us just as much as Democrats respect black people:
      With words, not actions.

    • Wow, excellent Charlie Manson reference!

      You know, that Helter skelter race war stuff didn’t turn out too well for him either.

  15. Democrat-controlled Senate is the direct result of Republican voter suppression ops AGAINST REPUBLICAN VOTERS in Georgia. Stupid games, stupid prizes, etc.

  16. If the blustery little dwarf kings of the left want a war, we’ll give them a war they won’t believe.

  17. Two Americas.
    I’m only 40 and I get called Boomer when I bring up the Bush-era anti-war lefties who screamed about govt. overreach.

    Somehow todays lefties get to keep that old merit badge while shredding the BoR and writing up blacklists of enemies.

    Having their cake and eating it too.

  18. No real sense in talking about voting anybody in that is pro freedom, from now on – election theft has been perfected by the radical left. I have to say aside from a few, the republican politicians have shown their cowardice and self interest again and again and they are almost as bad. The real power is the power of media/speech – and as it going they are going after that fast. Soon any gun owner will be labeled a domestic terrorist.

  19. HR 194 might be good.

    Federal National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) Firearms Denial
    Cases Investigated and Prosecuted, Fiscal Year 2017
    Federal NICS–8,606,286
    Transactions Denials–112,090
    ATF Field Division
    United States Attorney’s Offices

    Lets say 50% are felons, that’s a .00021411 rate. Where’s Bloomberg and the lovely ladies from Moms Demand Action? And the BATFE knew about all of them.

    No wonder some of you want the BATFE sent to China to enforce reasonable gun control.

    • 0.00021411 rate. Otherwise known as zero. That’s what we in the private sector refer to as the improper allocation of resources.

  20. Should include mufflers (baffled systems designed to reduce sound from rapidly expanding gasses) as classified as silencers, and therefore make all cars into guns.
