Proposed Federal House Legislation HR188

this is an anti-gun bill   evalutation

The government already regulates firearms sales beyond the limitations set forth by the Constitution. These background checks do not stop criminals so stop punishing law abiding gun owners.

Legislation Overview

Title: Providing for consideration of the bill (H.B. 842) to amend the National Labor Relations Act, the Labor Management Relations Act, 1947, and the Labor-Management Reporting and Disclosure Act of 1959, and for other purposes; providing for consideration of the bill (H.B. 8) to require a background check for every firearm sale; providing for consideration of the bill (H.B. 1446) to amend chapter 44 of title 18, United States Code, to strengthen the background check procedures to be followed before a Federal firearms licensee may transfer a firearm to a person who is not such a licensee; and for other purposes.

Subject: Congress: House of Representatives: Legislative rules and procedure

Description: This resolution sets forth the rule for consideration of H.B. 842 (Protecting the Right to Organize Act of 2021), H.B. 8 (Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2021), and H.B. 1446 (Enhanced Background Checks Act of 2021). Certain proceedings regarding journal approval and adjournment shall take place on any legislative day from March 13, 2021, through April 22, 2021. It shall be in order at any time through the calendar day of April 22, 2021, for the Speaker of the House to suspend the rules. The resolution waives the two-thirds vote requirement to allow consideration of resolutions reported from the Committee on Rules through the legislative day of April 22, 2021, on the same day they are presented to the House. The resolution also waives certain procedural requirements for a specified time period regarding journal approval, adjournment, suspension of the rules, and consideration of certain resolutions. Finally, the resolution revises H. Res. 8 (adopting and modifying the rules of the House for the 117th Congress) to increase the membership of the Select Committee on the Climate Crisis from 15 to 16 with 7 instead of 6 of such members being recommended by the minority leader.
