Government report anticipates calls for gun control in Congress

The shootings in an Aurora, Colo., theater and the Sikh temple in Milwaukee, Wis., make it “likely that there will be calls in the 112th Congress to reconsider a 1994 ban on semiautomatic assault weapons and large capacity ammunition feeding devices,” a November 14, 2012 Congressional Research Service report on “Gun Control Legislation” obtained this morning by Gun Rights Examiner reveals.

That's hardly breaking news to those who monitor such things, but to see it coming out of an official report talking about a session that will end on January 3 of next year is indicative of a new-found confidence in the wake of the recent elections, and that's something to take note if.

The CRS reports are intended to advise Congress on issues, and are not officially posted online, a subject activists interested in keeping an eye on the horizon should work to rectify. The Open CRS website provides a collection of reports obtained through their channels and through reader submissions. While prior versions of CRS “Gun Control Legislation” reports are available there and on other websites, they do not yet include this report, now posted on this correspondent’s Scribd account (see link in first paragraph).

Providing a history of recent legislation in the introductory summary that includes House actions on Fast and Furious gunwalking, amending “a limitation on the Secretary of Defense’s authority to regulate firearms privately held by members of the Armed Forces off-base,” funding ATF for FY2013, passing the Sportsmen’s Heritage Act of 2012, establishing “a greater degree of reciprocity between states that issue concealed carry handgun permits,” and prohibiting “the Department of Veterans Affairs from determining a beneficiary to be mentally incompetent for the purposes of gun control, unless such a determination were made by a judicial authority based upon a finding that the beneficiary posed a danger to himself or others.”
