Looks like national gun registry to me if it is passed.
Good luck getting your guns registered.

They mention qualifying forearms elsewhere in the text. But I did not see mention of what type of firearms. I would reckon what the government determines to be a qualifying firearm.

They have been trying to push this one for two or three years now.
I found this one while searching HR45 I think it was. They just keep reintroducing this bill to try and get it passed.
