Revolver News – Transform a News story into official legislation paperwork
In the early 1800s, revolvers were a fairly new invention. They had just started to be mass-produced and were not yet widespread. But one man was determined to make them popular—Samuel Colt. In this Revolver News report, explore Colt’s journey from inventor to businessman and the impact his revolvers had on American history. From the Mexican-American War to the American Civil War, read on to learn more about how Colt’s revolvers changed the course of history.
What Revolver News Found
In light of the recent resurgence in gun control discussions, Revolver News decided to take a closer look at what is included in Congressional records when it comes to firearms. After some research, we were able to find that not much has changed since the National Firearms Act of 1934 was enacted. This law regulates and taxes firearm ownership, requiring licenses for some weapons and establishing a registry of firearms.
However, there are some interesting exceptions. For example, guns registered before the law went into effect are not subject to licensing or registration requirements. In addition, many rifles and shotguns that are classified as “long guns” are not included in the registry. These weapons are commonly owned by hunters and sport shooters. Finally, certain military-grade weapons, such as assault rifles, are not included in the registry regardless of when they were bought or registered.
Overall, this information provides little insight into how Congress typically handles firearms legislation. While it is interesting to know about some of the exemptions from regulation that exist currently, it does not provide much insight into how lawmakers might approach new gun control measures in the future.

What to Do if You’re Concerned About a Bill
If you are concerned about a bill that is being considered in Congress, there are a few things that you can do to make sure that your voice is heard. First, be sure to read the entire bill before speaking out against it. Many times, important amendments have been made to bills during the process of parliament. Second, make sure to contact your local representative and let them know how you feel about the bill. Finally, attend any public hearings on the bill and make your voice heard!
It’s been just over a year since the Revolver News team first started investigating allegations of corruption and bribery in the U.S. Congress. In that time, we’ve uncovered evidence of a wide-ranging conspiracy that goes all the way to the top – and it looks like we’re only just getting started. Our recent report into the Congressional record has reignited public outrage and highlighted how badly our political system is broken. This is only the beginning – we will not stop until we have exposed every stitch of corruption, and put those responsible behind bars. Thank you for supporting us as we continue this fight – together, we can restore democracy to America!
