Proposed Federal House Legislation HB3299

this is an anti-gun bill   evalutation

Proposal that will make AR pistols and similar items further restricted and possibly require NFA status. Very little text is available but what is there is clearly anti-2nd Amendment from a legislator with a long history of anti-gun acts.

Title: Protecting Our Communities Act

Subject: Crime and law enforcement

Description: This expands the types of parts, weapons, and devices that are subject to regulation under federal firearms laws.

Specifically, the bill includes as a firearm any combination of parts designed or intended to be used to convert a device into a firearm and from which a firearm may be readily assembled; adds armor-piercing, concealable weapons to the list of firearms subject to regulation under federal firearms laws; and provides statutory authority for the regulation issued by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to classify bump-stock devices as machine guns for the purposes of federal firearms laws. Additionally, the bill requires the Department of Justice to notify state and local law enforcement authorities following a firearms-related background check that results in a denial.
