Representative Sheila Jackson Lee Wants Your Guns

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (sometimes referred to as Pedo Jackson Lee), Democrat of Houston, Texas (D-18), wants you to register your guns and wants everyone to know about it.

Democrat representative of the 18th district in Texas, Sheila Jackson-Lee has introduced a bill to the house that seeks to make a registry of gun owners, but also to restrict the ability to purchase firearms based on purchasers association.

H.R. 127 would require all Americans to have to register their firearms to include purchase and possession of ammunition. The resolution would require government notification to lend one’s firearm to another, and would also require a psychological evaluation to own a fire arm.

While you can read the the House Resolution at congress.gov, and the body of the text is published in full at the end of this article, Sheila Jackson Lee’s unconstitutional legislation is partly dissected below:

H.R. 127 Dissected

This section requires all gun owners to register their firearms with the federal government.

This section would authorize a database of gun owners that is accessible by “all members of the public, all Federal, State, and local law enforcement authorities, all branches of the United States Armed Forces, and all State and local governments, as defined by the Bureau.” It also requires firearm purchasers be 21 years of age, have a background check and psychological evaluation, complete mandatory firearm training, as well as have valid insurance.

This section mandates antique firearms must be registered.

This section of H.R. 127 requires a psychological evaluation of the purchaser, as well as a psychological evaluation of household members, as well as submittal of character references.
This section permits denial of firearm ownership on the grounds of: hospitalization for any mental illness, disturbance or diagnosis (including depression), addiction, or brain disease.

This portion prohibits ammunition of .50 caliber or greater and high capacity ammunition feeding devices.

Sheila Jackson Lee, Democrat of Houston, TX, has been a proponent of gun control for a long time. This life time politician, this Coup Party traitor, who has committed acts of sedition and treason, has attempted to introduce this bill in the past. She has also been for restricting certain types of guns and ammunition, having conveniently mistaken an AR-15’s ammunition for a .50 caliber bullet. Almost as in response to this Greg Abbott, governor of Texas has talked about making the state of Texas a “Sanctuary State” for the Second Amendment.
