DC – GUN POLITICS – Longshot Federal Gun Registration Bill Would Require Psych Exams

A longshot bill in the U.S. House of Representatives that would require psychological examinations for gun owners and a publicly accessible list of ownership is causing a stir with Second Amendment advocates. The bill, sponsored by Houston Democratic Representative Sheila Jackson Lee, is named after Sabika Sheikh, a Pakistani exchange student killed in the 2018 massacre at Houston’s Santa Fe High School. It would direct the U.S. attorney general to develop a federal licensing system for guns and ammunition with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Gun owners would be required to provide the make, model and serial number of the gun, the name of the owner, and where it will be stored. The attorney general would then make a publicly available database of registered weapons. To acquire a license, gun owners would have be 21 years old, pass a background check, complete a training course, obtain insurance, and undergo a psychological evaluation. “Military-style” weapons would require an additional training course and license. The proposed psychological evaluation would have to be conducted by a licensed psychologist and require them to interview the spouse, former spouses, and least two other family members or associates of the person applying. Licenses would be automatically denied if the applicant had ever been hospitalized with a “mental illness, disturbance, or diagnosis,” including depression, suicidal ideation, or addiction. Liability insurance would also be required and provided for one year by the attorney general at the cost of $800. Any loans of weapons would require the attorney general to notified. Possession of a firearm or ammunition without a license or registration would be punished with a minimum of 15 years in prison or a fine of no less than $75,000. The bill would also ban .50 caliber or greater ammunition and ammunition devices that hold more than 10 rounds. This would not apply to law enforcement.  [full article]
