(RepublicanNews.org) – It was bound to happen. With Democrats controlling both houses of Congress and the White House, it was just a matter of time until they decided to come after people’s guns.
Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) introduced a new Firearm Licensing and Registration Act earlier this year. Named after Pakistani exchange student Sabika Sheikh, one of 10 people killed in a 2018 mass shooting in Texas, the bill is one of the most radical gun control measures ever proposed.

Western Journal contributor Christine Favocci tore into the bill in a February 3 article, exposing the danger it poses to Second Amendment rights. For instance, if passed, the bill would mandate psychiatric evaluations and firearms training. It would also establish a federal gun registry and a publicly-accessible database of gun owners.
Remarkably, its oppressive mandates don’t stop there. The bill would also require the government to gather additional personal data for the gun registry, like gun owners’ criminal history, where the weapon would be kept, and the name of anyone who might borrow it.
Democrats love their precious right to free expression. Too bad they don’t seem to care about the right to bear arms.
