Here It Comes… New Bill Requires Lawful Gun Owners To Transfer, Turn In Firearms

VIA|  Imagine lawfully owning something, only to have the government decide you can’t be trusted with that same item. You can’t be trusted, they say, because some dipstick on the other side of the country decided to use a similar item illegally and horribly. Because he was of a similar age to you, you can no longer have that item.

You’d be pissed, right? You’d be furious. More importantly, you’d have every right to be.

The Associated Press reports Democratic Rep. Michelle Mussman sponsored the bill, and it passed in the House 64-51.

If signed into law, it will prohibit people under 21 years old from buying or possessing “assault rifles,” high-capacity magazines, and .50-caliber rifles.

“There’s always the debate about whether or not it’s appropriate to have a discussion in the heat of the moment,” Mussman said on the House floor. “But I think that what we are seeing right now is a demand from the public that we stop kicking this down the road. That we actually do something about this.”

If there is an upside to this, it’s that officials say the plan isn’t to go door to door looking for guns. However, anyone age 18- to 20-years-old in possession of a banned firearm will be charged with a misdemeanor.
