Democrats Push Requirement that Would-Be Gun Buyers First Get License from DOJ

Breitbart – by AWR Hawkins

A group of Democrat senators is pushing to require would-be gun buyers to first acquire a license to purchase from the Department of Justice (DOJ). 

The group of Democrats is led by Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) and they are pushing the Federal Firearm Licensing Act, Politico reported.

Sens. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) and Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) are joining with Booker to secure the Act, which would require Americans who wish to buy guns first get a license from the DOJ.

The Act states, “It shall be unlawful for any individual to purchase or receive a firearm unless the individual has a valid Federal firearm license.”

Politico noted, “The DOJ license would require both a written firearm safety test and hands-on training, a criminal background check and submission of fingerprints and proof of identity. The license would only be available to people over 21 years of age, essentially raising the age of gun ownership to 21.”

Booker released a statement alluding to Saturday’s attack in Buffalo, saying, “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.”

  1. you cannot take a constitutionally protected activity and issue a license and a fee for it, if a state does turn it into a privlege with a license and a fee then we can continue on with our right and ignore the license and fee and continue on with impunity as if the law was never enacted. it holds no power; it holds no office it bears no oath blah blah blah. Marbury v Madison, Shapiro v Thompson, Shuttlesworth v Birmingham. blah blah blah… it F!@ KING CANT BE INFRINGED UP… { INFRINGED ] DONT YOU F!@KING KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS… IT MEANS YOU CANT F#$KING DO IT!!
