WASHINGTON, D.C.—State Representative Justin Amash announced Thursday the introduction of a bill designed to block a federal gun registration policy.
Under a policy announced in 2011, which is currently being challenged by the US Justice Department, according to the representative, gun dealers in the southwest US are required to report the sale of certain guns. The policy applies to two or more semi-automatic rifles with specific specifications to a single buyer.
Amash opposes the measure, and says the government has no business tracking gun sales to law-abiding citizens.
Fourteen other representatives co-sponsored Amash's bill, known as HR 3814.
