Democrats Refer Gun Control Behemoth Bill to Committee Amidst Coronavirus Emergency

As the coronavirus epidemic began to dominate news cycles and alter everyday American life, Congressional Democrats advanced a new ‘behemoth’ gun control bill that goes far beyond anything the American people have ever seen debated in the halls of Congress, combining the worst of the worst gun control proposals into a single piece of legislation.

H.R. 5717, the “Gun Violence Prevention and Community Safety Act of 2020,” was introduced to the House Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security on March 10th, having been sponsored by Georgia’s Hank Johnson and and eighteen other Democrats.

The bill is exceptionally comprehensive in instituting various forms of federal gun confiscation proposals touted by anti-gun elements of American society. It includes:

-A ban on almost all semiautomatic rifles

-A nationwide gun registry

-Federal bans on magazine capacity
-A massive 30% tax on all gun transactions, and a 50% tax on all ammunition purchases
-A ban on gun ownership for Americans under the age of 21
-National ‘red flag’ extralegal gun confiscation programs
