Proposed Federal House Legislation HB1952

this is an anti-gun bill   evalutation

Passive identification ability needs defined. There is no text available for this Bill. And we are steadfastly against revictimizing the victims of theft or other offenses over reporting requirements. What possible justification is there for criminalizing being a victim of a crime?

Legislation Overview

Title: Stopping the Iron Pipeline Act of 2021

Subject: Crime and law enforcement: Administrative law and regulatory procedures: Civil actions and liability: Crimes against property: Criminal investigation, prosecution, interrogation: Criminal justice information and records: Department of Justice: Firearms and explosives: Law enforcement officers: Right of privacy

Description: Establishes requirements for incorporating passive identification capability into firearms sold in the United States. The term passive identification capability means technology that (1) enables identification by a mobile or fixed reading device, and (2) does not transmit an electronic monitoring or tracking signal. Additionally, the bill requires a gun owner to report a lost or stolen firearm to local law enforcement authorities within 48 hours of discovery. A gun owner who fails to report a lost or stolen firearm is subject to penalties—a fine, a prison term of up to one year, or both.
