I just got this proposed legislation from a credible source. To the best of my knowledge it is not been broken anywhere on the internet so you are reading it here at NWFA first. I can't say exactly how I got it but I can prove that I took it straight from Harvard University's website and that it is not available publicly. Please spread this far and wide to other gunsites. Unfit Persons Firearms Act of 2013 1 Unfit persons shall be defined as: (a) a mentally ill person, (b) a person who has been convicted of a felony, (c) a non national of the United States of America, (d) a person deemed by a judicial review panel to be unfit, (e) a person who is deemed by the Department of Homeland Security to be unfit and a danger to society. 2 All persons attempting to purchase a gun shall get a free permit from the Division of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives of the Department of Justice prior to purchasing any firearm. 3 All Federally licensed gun dealers, state licensed gun dealers, and private parties are prohibited from selling to any person deemed unfit. Further, it is the responsibility of the selling party to verify a permit as well as a certification of fitness from a licensed psychologist. Failure to adhere to this prohibition will be punishable by 5 years in jail, a fine up to $100,000, or both. 4 All persons seeking to purchase a gun shall, before purchase, be cleared psychologically by an approved psychologist. This assessment will verify, in writing, that to the best of the practitioners’ belief the person seeking to purchase a firearm is mentally competent to purchase, possess, and responsibly own a firearm. Attempting to purchase a firearm without psychological clearance will be punishable by 5 years in jail, a fine up to $100,000, or both. 5 The Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives shall maintain a list of qualified psychologists. 6 All owners of firearms must be evaluated once every year by an approved psychologist. If the psychologist deems someone previously competent to later be incompetent, it is the responsibility of the psychologist to notify local authorities so that any guns owned may be confiscated. Further, a permit to own and operate a firearm must be renewed every year with the Division of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives. 7 Any person found to be in possession of a firearm without certification of fitness or a permit will be guilty of Felony possession of a firearm. A first offense shall be punishable by a mandatory fine of $10,000. A second offense shall be punishable by a mandatory minimum jail sentence of 60 days. A third offense shall be punishable by a mandatory minimum jail sentence of 5 years. 8 Under no circumstances does this Act create a registry of guns owned. No central database of guns owned or purchased shall be created or maintained by any division or department of the Federal government. This Act does not create a prohibition of the states to create an maintain a registry as such a registry is a right of the States to mandate, create, and implement. 9 This Act does not create a mandate to maintain liability insurance for possession of a gun. This Act does not, however, create a prohibition of the States to mandate that owners of guns keep and maintain liability insurance.
