New this week:

HB163 would repeal the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act

SB162 would gut Washington DC's restrictive firearm laws

SB159 would terminate 'operation choke point' which had been used against firearm dealers by banks

SB151 is a terrorist watch list bill that would require the sale or transfer of any firearm to anyone that has been investigated for terrorism within the last 10 years to be reported to the government. It would also allow the delay of a sale if a person has been investigated within the last 10 years. The scary part is this bill was introduced by Republican Marc Rubio

HB788 would provide funding for new ranges and expansion of existing ranges at federal parks and land

I would expect this from a Schumer NOT Rubio.

That being said it STILL does not provide the legal due process for applying restrictions nor the appeal process for contesting the restrictions to an individul

This is similar to the "SSA Payee= incompetent reversal" that just got passed AND signed this week.

HB4142 is basically blackmail by the federal government over the states forcing them to make sure firearms are seized from individuals charged with certain offenses and / or subject to a protection of order. The ffederal government would withold grants funds until such a time as the states comply.

HB4342 would basically make any firearm dealer, manufacturer or importer a prohibited person that must transfer all firearm inventory to another dealer even if the reason for the revocation of their license wasn't because they were prohibited. (in other words their license could be revoked for improper paperwork yet they would still need to transfer all firearms to another dealer)
