Warren Introduces Massive Gun Ban Bill

The asshattery is starting already.
Mommy Dearest says guns bad. Pretty much all the marbles covered in this one;
> Create a federal gun licensing system and require a federal or state-issued firearms license to purchase or own a gun, and establish a grant program to help states set up their own systems.
> Require universal background checks, close legal loopholes that allow individuals to skirt background check requirements, and require background check denials to be reported to law enforcement.
> Keep guns out of the wrong hands by banning individuals who present safety risks from buying guns, establishing Extreme Risk Protection Order systems, and cracking down on gun theft.
> Ensure that guns are used and stored responsibly by raising the minimum age for all gun or ammunition purchases to 21, establishing a 7-day waiting period for the purchase of all guns, strengthening gun storage laws, and banning guns on all school campuses.
> Keep weapons of war off our streets by banning military-style assault weapons, lethal gun accessories, and untraceable and undetectable firearms.
> Crack down on gun trafficking by banning bulk gun purchases and establishing a new law to specifically ban gun trafficking.
> Improve oversight of gun dealers by strengthening ATF’s authority to inspect gun shops, enhancing record-keeping requirements for gun dealers, and repealing harmful appropriations riders that limit law enforcement’s ability to trace guns that are used in crimes and hold gun dealers accountable when they break the law.
> Hold the gun industry accountable by clarifying that gun manufacturers can be held liable for civil penalties for the harms their guns cause, authorizing the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission to address safety defects in firearms and firearm accessories, and raising the excise tax on gun sales to 30% and ammunition sales to 50%.
> Invest in research and community-based gun violence prevention by providing $100 million in annual funding for federal research into gun violence and creating a new grant program to provide $100 million per year for gun violence intervention programs.

Here’s a MAC vid link, if some folks prefer a reasonably tolerable face to a page full of bull$#!+;

Can’t say I’m totally surprised they’ve moved on to national schemes. There have already been some moves in localized towns/cities to do similar massive infringements, not only on guns, but like… everything.
For example, Chicago, from a few days back. I do not know the outcome of this attempt, but this is what was proposed;
> Violating parts of the Open Meetings Act
> Ban sale of firearms and ammunition
> Ban sale of any alcohol
> Closing of all bars, taverns, liquor stores, etc
> Ban sale or giving away of gasoline or other liquid flammable or combustible products in any container other than a gasoline tank permanently fixed to a motor vehicle
> Direct the shutoff of power, water, gas, etc
> Take possession of private property and obtain full title to same
> Prohibit or restrict ingress and egress to and from the City

On the one hand, my white pill side says that this is all propaganda gold for us come Nov, and the leftists have torpedoed themselves hard on this stuff. “Hey folks, vote for the side that did NOT try to disarm you and take your stuff when your lives were at stake!” See, it’s easy, especially when so many first time buyers are in on the current panic.
On the other hand, my black pill side sees the stupidity of the average voter, and the inability of the RINOs to capitalize on…literally anything. So…we’ll see I guess.

For sure, one would think she would be licking her wounds after just being bounced from the presidential race. On the other hand, it we be nice if ccl’s were like drivers licenses. Whether we need 1 in the first place is a different issue.
