#1 ....because the intrastate and interstate trafficking of firearms are so commingled, full regulation of interstate commerce requires the incidental regulation of intrastate commerce;

Here we go. What Republic?

#3 A bill submitted to the House of Representatives, and immediately sent to Committee. How often is something like this submitted, without ever once passing out of committee, let alone to a House vote matched by a Senate vote, then a reconciliation bill submitted to both houses of Congress? Let's worry about this if it gets to the reconciliation stage, although you might want to write to your Representative, and possibly even both Senators.

#5 Re Congressman Rush:

Rush introduced a 1993 bill that would have banned handguns for anyone who was not in law enforcement and added an increase in the licensing fee for gun dealers from $10 to $3,000.

...he volunteered for the Army but went AWOL in 1968 and co-founded the Illinois Black Panthers...

#6 Handguns and semiautomatics which feed from a "detachable device", presumably meaning a magazine, from the text. So sounds like my shotgun's in the clear, and any bolt-action rifle.

It excludes any "antiques". God only knows how you define that.

Horrible bill, but the above stipulations will let the willful & wishful close their eyes and claim that it isn't aimed at "hunters and people with heirlooms".

#8 Why not just house to house through the 'hood and confiscate anything more dangerous than a butter knife? After all, that's where 90% of the problem lies. I volunteer Chicago to be first.
