While the bill has virtually no chance of passing, it exposes the party’s extremist desires for gun control.

Three top Democrat Senators introduced a gun control bill that would dramatically alter how firearms are sold and purchased in the country.

According to The Hill, Senators Cory Booker (D-NJ), Bob Menendez (D-NJ) and Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) authored the bill.

Titled the Federal Firearm Licensing Act, it would require residents to apply for a Department of Justice license before purchasing or otherwise obtaining a firearm. It would also raise the legal age of firearm ownership to 21.

In order to be approved for the license, residents would need to complete a written safety test and multiple physical tests including firing testing.

Applicants would also need to submit a criminal background check, fingerprints, and proof of identity.

Book said in a statement to Politico it is the time to get ambitious on the issue.

“This is the moment to enact ambitious legislation – as a nation, we must rise to it, or we are fated to witness the deadly scenes of this past weekend and years past over again,” he said.
