    H. R. 2567 was introduced by US Rep. Jackie Speier. It was one of the two bills mentioned in an OP by Torian.

    This bill would put the US Consumer Product Safety Commission in the gun safety business. Its something many in the US house would vote for.

    See Thomas LOC for full text of the bill:

    A typical "feel-good" bill, and a trap. Anyone who opposes it or any member of Congress who votes against it will be accused of wanting to murder innocent children. I doubt it will go anywhere, but the anti-gun administration will seize on any thing, any law, any executive order that will aid the goal of disarming the American people and imposing their ideas of "control".

    (Note that police guns are NOT exempted, so yes, officer, they really do mean YOU!)

    There will be a run on Nagant revolvers.

    Again, thanks for the post.

    Unfortunately, you can't legislate common sense or good parenting, both of are responsible for keeping weapons out of the hands of children.

    Again, this is just another method, similar to HR2566, of accomplishing a gun ban in an indirect fashion...if no one is paying attention too closely.

    Examples of child resistant from text:
    Ever think you would describe the trigger on a PF9 as light? :)
    Yes the bill is retroactive.

    Anyone have a gun friendly congressman that would introduce a bill banning the CPSC from regulating firearms? this will be never ending until that is done.

    I don't know whether to laugh, cry, or be angry.

    This will also prevent the elderly and those with hand problems from protecting themselves with a gun. Sounds like an infringement to me. Age and disability bias?

    Yes, very good point and an excellent argument on why this bill needs to be defeated.

    This would require existing post-1899 handguns to be retrofitted to have a 10-pound trigger pull, or to have other trigger mechanism modifications. If these modifications were not made within two years after the date of enactment, the guns could not be sold or transferred.

    Among other things, this would destroy the collector market. The bill thus amounts to a "taking" of economic value, which, under the 5th Amendment to the Constitution, would require just compensation to be paid to the owners.

    I wonder if the sponsors have thought about such consequences?
