Well, welcome to the live to shoot podcast. My name is Jeff Tuttle. And I'm a licensed firearm dealer for the last 13 years. I'm passionate about our second amendment rights. And in this podcast, we talk about all things related to the second amendment, as well as I'm not throwing us for a story or something going on in our current environment, such as election or other areas of politics. So today is Saturday, February 13th, and it has been a week. So first I've been having all sorts of technical difficulties. I just pray that I'm able to get this episode published out there today. This is the second time I've recorded this episode. I have also recorded some of my special episodes on the 1776 report. For the third time. This morning and I'm hoping that they get, I can get them published. One looks like for some reason, again, the audio did not save. I've been having all sorts of troubles. So that's one thing this week. Others I'm in Texas and it is cold. We get a snaps, you know, cold weather, but tomorrow and Monday, the lows are going to be. Near zero, we've had some ice blistery, wind, wind chills, you know, in the teens. And for us that is cold, cold, cold. So, and I am still licking my wounds over my chiefs loss. Last weekend in the super bowl, I have to give a TB 12. Some credit. For the victory and you know that Tampa Bay. Defensive line that just wreaked havoc. On a poor Patrick Holmes, so this week, we are going to be talking about the good, the bad and the ugly of some of the current firearms legislation that had been proposed at the beginning of this year. Last week we talked about the ugly and that was house bill one 27. Proposed by Ms. Jackson down in Houston. And so this week we're going to talk about we're going to go on. Reverse order. We're going to talk about the bad and then we'll talk about the good. And so we'll go through these and I'm just going to be reading through some of these that we've got and trying to just summarize them the best of my ability. So we're going to start with, and there was a. I've got, there are the handful Ms. Jackson has been Jackson. Lee has been very active and her farms legislation. So we've got quite a few of them here from her. So this is HR one. And this one is called Kimberly Vaughn, firearm, safe storage act. And. This reading from the bill States, it shall be unlawful for a person to store. Keep any firearm or ammunition. That has moved in or that has otherwise affected interstate or foreign commerce on the premises of a residence under the control of a person. If that person knows or reasonably should know that one, an individual who has not obtained 18. Years of age is likely to gain access to the firearm or ammunition without the permission. Or the parent or guardian and to an individual who resides at the residence eligible to possess a firearm under federal state and local law. So it says shall not apply to a person if it is. If the person keeps the firearms and ammunition secured. Unloaded and separate in a safe certified by the attorney general and locked with a trigger lock certified by the attorney general. So you cannot have well it says, unless you have your ammunition and firearms stored separately. From each other secure and locked. You, you cannot have them stored on your premise, so that completely restricts your right of self-defense. I personally have several guns that are loaded. They're secured. I only have access to them, but if this law becomes a path that will be illegal to do that, you cannot have. And so we. We'll not be able to. Protect yourself with By having a firearm on your house. I'm ready to to be fired. And if, if you found to violate this, you're gonna be fine, not less than 50,000 and not more than a hundred thousand dollars and in prison for not more than 20 years or both. Another one from Ms. Jackson is HR one 25. And this one is the a side. Is gun safety, not sorry. Act of 2021. And. This is this is one that is based around a seven to eight, providing a seven day waiting period. Before a semiautomatic firearm, I silence or armor piercing ammunition, or a large capacity ammunition magazine may be transferred. So she's enacting a seven day waiting period on those types of purchases. And in this bill, she cites a lot of different statistics about a mass shootings. Every day on average, 92 Americans are victims of gun violence. Resulting in more than 33,000 deaths annually. She goes on. She talks about Sandy hook. And the Las Vegas shooting. And, but, you know, she doesn't really provide a lot of backing for. Her statistics, but her theory behind this bill is that you have to wait for seven days and the criminal is going to go and wait, seven days before he. Purchases. You know, he can purchase a firearm and we know that it's not viable. That they're criminals, aren't going to evade the law. And the interesting thing, too, that always gets me about the different laws that UC path and things like that is. When they're written this. There's there's no. Ah Actual thought and put in about how this is going to be applied or they just don't understand the current laws that exist. So in this one that she's included that there's a seven day waiting period before you buy a silencer. And as we all know that that waiting period right now is probably about six months since it is an NFA item and have to go through that registration process. House bill one 21 by Ms. Jackson Lee is the gun violence reduction. Resources act. Now this one, I don't have a lot of qualms with there's not a lot. Detail in this, but this is the one. If Providing that for the hiring of 200 additional Bureau ATF agents and investigators to enforce gun laws. Now. What gun laws are they enforcing? And when I see that, I see that there's this, you know, as an FFL is, could be used to come and. Start. Cracking down on FFLs and trying to remove our licenses. You know, and here again, she started state some things that many of the crimes were committed by people who never should have been able to purchase a gun. I'm implying that I guess that FFLs and such are violating the law. In some way, and that millions of guns are sold every year in a no questions asked transaction and experts estimate that 40% of guns now sold in the United States are sold without a background check of the purchaser. Well, I mean, Yes in Texas, for example, you don't have to have a background check done if you have a license to carry. And that is true in several many States. Because that background check was already performed when you got your license to carry. And as long as you haven't, it hasn't been revoked. You are able to purchase it without going through another background check. One from Mr. Green Al green of Texas is HR one 67. And this is a to prohibit the transfer of firearms at a gun show by a person who is not federally licensed farms dealer. So listen to what they do is like. Country, what they call control. The gun show loophole, they're trying to close that and really All, all the gun show loophole is, as everybody knows, is that it's just the facilitating the private sale between two individuals have a firearm, and that is currently legal. And this law does not make that illegal. It just makes it illegal to do it on something that is, is been permitted. As a gun show or on the premises of them. So. Very little impact on that one in terms of it's not going to change anything. And again, but it is their attempt to start to to Restrict our rights to, to sell and transfer firearms. And. Then we have the, and this is a kind of this this next one. HR 30 kind of goes hand in hand with how there. They're trying to now redefine what a straw purchase is and eliminating the gifting. Ability of firearms to people in terms of either as a. At As a bonus from work and maybe a. Giveaway item are even being able to buy them for the boy Scouts to be able to use in hunting safety courses. So this is HR 30 and again And this one has a lot of co-sponsors to it, and it is called the gun trafficking prohibition act. And I'm reading from an article from bearing arms and So I'm going to quote some of the pieces out of it and says that such items as defining straw purchase as the receipt of any firearm, by a person who does not own the firearm by way of a pledge or pawn. Security for the payment or repayment of money. Or on consignment. So yeah. Personal is going on. It's a consignment at your local gun store from a pond. Isn't that, or even on sites, such as gun broker are now going to be considered. Straw purchases. The national shooting foundation has several concerns as well. So the Mark Olivia the general prohibition language against purchasing a farm on behalf of another is particularly troubling. The way it is drafted now says the bill would punish innocent conduct in the case of a lawful purchase who is not prohibited when the person buys a firearm. Half of another person who was also not prohibited and essence, the bill would make it illegal for an entity like the boy Scouts or future farmers of America. Programs to buy rim fire 22 to use in their rifle, marksmanship programs or rancher to buy a farm or a ranch hand to use against those pressures. Additionally, the bill slips in language, essentially creating a federal red flag law. It in, in, in it, it says includes a finding that such person represents a credible threat to the physical safety of such intimate partner or a child. It also, it would also. Put restrictions on just how many you can buy ourselves. Well, it shall be unlawful for any person to ship transfer, transfer, or cause to be transported or otherwise dispose of two or more firearms to another person. If the transfer knows or has reasonable cause to believe that the use caring or possession of a firearm by a transferee would be violation of, or would result in the violation of any federal law punishable by a term of imprisonment. And receiving from another person, two or more firearms, if the recipient knows or has reasonable cause to believe that such receipt. It would be a violation or would result in violation of any federal law. So And so I'd say unless you're already a, co-conspirator exactly how you're going to know if the transferee is possession of a firearm would result in a violation of federal law. Yeah, that's a good question. So there are a lot of concerning things. In this bill as well. And this one is it's in the bad cow category, it could slip into the ugly category. Very easily. Now on the good, so we've got a few goods out there. HR. 95 is the hearing protection act and that is the effort to move the suppressors out of the NFA and make them Be able to purchase without going through the interface or paying the tax stamp. The hearing protection act has been out there for a number of years. It's got a lot of co-sponsors on it. But Until we can control both sides of Congress. I don't think we're going to make headway on that one. We've even had failed to do that when we did control both sides of Congress. Because once we did that, we got lazy and, and did not push through things that we need to get done. H R 38. Is a concealed carry reciprocity law. And this law, this bill, you know, provides that if you have a license to carry concealed in your state and another state has licensed to carry conceal that you're automatically. There's automatic reciprocity between those two States. Now the process works for you. A state has to go and individually grant reciprocity, whatever States they consider. Being eligible to be good to have reciprocity, this would make it across the board so that you don't have to worry about which States have reciprocity. And don't. And now a new one that just popped up yesterday. So I guess that's the benefit of. My technology failures. So Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor green, who has been out in the news and quite controversial, she has introduced HR nine, nine, three. And it is the second amendment preservation act. And so there is no text on this bill currently that's published. So I'm pulling this from her website. And she States on here that the Sappa second amendment preservation act will cut off federal funding from implementing, enforcing our advancing any measure, law regulation, or guidance relating to the lawful use purchase sale possession, or transportation of farms by any citizen of the United States for fiscal year 2021. And it prohibits any federal funds from enforcing our implementing regulations or guidance issued by the Bureau of alcohol, tobacco, and firearms. Promulgated after November one, 2020. So it's basically saying don't care what you're going to do. We're not good. We're not going to give you any funding to implement it. But interesting to see what this one does, where it goes. Probably doesn't have much Chance of getting through, but I gotta give him a representative. Representative Taylor green credit. She is out there, stirring it up for people. So that is this week. I'm on the good, the bad and ugly. I'm hoping I can get this up. So publish out there. So you actually listened to it. Again, thank you for listening. If you liked this podcast.
