News article on it:

Jacobs proposes federal licensing law for assault-style rifles
https://www.thelcn.com/news/local/jacobs-proposes-federal-licensing-law-for-assault-style-rifles/article_e901c345-83b8-5291-840f-e41f949da8ff.html

The Federal Assault Weapons Licensing Act would create a new licensing system for any American seeking to purchase a new assault-style, semiautomatic weapon — anybody who already owns such a firearm at the time of enactment would be grandfathered in.

The licensing process would require a person complete a mandatory safety course, pass an FBI background check, submit fingerprints, and provide proof of identity. The license would need to be renewed every five years if an individual wants to purchase or obtain additional assault weapons.

If a person fails to pass a background check at the time of purchase, disqualifying information becomes available, or DOJ finds an individual poses a threat to themselves or others, their license could be withdrawn. The bill would also increase the availability of information on criminals that the FBI draws from when conducting a background check.

The bill also contains protections for the privacy and constitutional rights of license holders, Jacobs’ office said.

People who already own an assault-style weapon, along with active-duty military and law enforcement officers would not need a license. The legislation would also allow an unlicensed person to use a such a firearm at a shooting range, or for the purposes of hunting, if a license holder supervises.

It would also allow non-license holders to use such a weapon if it is necessary to prevent imminent death or serious harm to another person.

Potentially, a government is the most dangerous threat to man's rights: it holds a legal monopoly on the use of physical force against legally disarmed victims.

A NY Republican who represents an area up around and or including Buffalo. He lost his reelection bid after supporting an AWB so this his is middle finger to everyone in the nation on his way out the door.

Read the bill and as expected a whole lot of BS in it including a whole bunch of stuff that runs in direct opposition to Bruen. The House would likely pass this, but don't see this getting a vote in the Senate.
