    Default Not a Joke (gun control)

    Subject: New FEDERAL Bill: HR45 - Verified at
    Snopes.com

    http://www.snopes.com/politics/guns/blairholt.asp
    Please send this to everybody on your list... this is Obama gun controlby secrecy.

    Very Important for you to be aware of a new bill HR 45 introduced into the
    House.
    This is the Blair Holt Firearm Licensing & Record of Sale Act of 2009....

    We just learned yesterday about this on the Peter Boyle's radio program.

    Even gun shop owners didn't know about this because it is flying under the
    radar.

    To find out about this - go to any government website and type in HR 45 or
    Google HR 45 Blair Holt Firearm Licensing & Record of Sales Act of 2009. You
    will get all the information.

    Basically this would make it illegal to own a firearm - any rifle with a
    clip or ANY
    pistol unless:
    It is registered, You are fingerprinted, You supply a current
    Driver's
    > License You supply your Social Security #
    > You will submit to a physical & mental evaluation at any time of their
    >choosing

    Each update - change or ownership through private or public sale must be
    reported
    > and costs $25 - Failure to do so you automatically lose the
    > right to own a firearm and are subject up to a year in jail.

    There is a child provision clause on page 16 section 305 stating a
    child-access
    > provision. Gun must be locked and inaccessible to any child under 18.
    >
    They would have the right to come and inspect that you are storing your gun
    safely
    > away from accessibility to children and fine is punishable for up to 5
    yrs. in prison.

    If you think this is a joke - go to the website and take your pick of many
    options
    > to read this. It is long and lengthy. But, more and more people are
    becoming aware of this. Pass the word along. Any hunters in your family -
    pass this along.

    Peter Boyles is on this and having guests. Listen to him on KHOW 630 a.m. in
    the
    > morning. He suggests the best way to fight this is to tell all your
    friends about it and "spring into action". Also he suggests we all join a
    pro-gun group like the Colorado Rifle Association, hunting associations, gun
    clubs and especially the NRA.
    >
    This is just a "termite" approach to complete confiscation of guns and
    disarming of our society to the point we have no defense - chip away a
    little here and there until the goal is accomplished before anyone realizes
    it. (Did Obama promise transparency? It seems his motives are more and more
    transparent while his methods are hidden in back rooms.)

    Guys you gotta keep up. This has been going around and around, but it is essentially dead to the point the NRA is just “keeping an eye on any further actions”. Just because it is on snopes doesn’t mean it is the absolute end all fact or that it is an actual representation of what is currently happening. This bill got zero support and was referred to the house judiciary committee where it is dying a slow death, never to see the light of day again.

    Thursday, February 12, 2009

    It is H.R. 45: Blair Holt's Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2009. This bill was introduced in the 111th Congress by U. S. Rep. Bobby Rush (D IL) on Jan. 6, 2009. Failing to attract any co sponsors, it was referred for consideration to the House Committee on the Judiciary, where it now rests awaiting further action.

    It was introduced so that part is true but it was no surprise and real no surprise that it got no support. Rham Emanuel was the cosponsor and was too far left even for most democrats. If you read to the bottom of the link to snopes you would have read that this is pretty much not a big issue. This is helping drive gun sales and gun prices. Can’t find ammo (we can’t here, at least not defense calibers) this is a reason why. We have to watch these things but by pushing it and keeping it out there without completely checking what it is about only helps the antis by causing fear in those of us who are gun owners and does things like drive up prices and make guns and or ammo hard to get. Having the freedom to own guns is not much good if you can’t get or shoot them. Believe me the NRA is very good at getting the word out and the date this started was in January (even the link you posted is Feb.) and if it were a threat the word would be out in days rather than 3 months after the fact.

    See that is a good reason to check out POTUS Place…….speaking of which I will see this thread there as soon as Chris or Vicky sees it

    This bill is dead. They can't even find anybody to co-sponsor it.

    It is kind of funny that the bill was proposed by someone who reportedly went AWOL from the Army to co-found the IL chapter of the Black Panthers and served 6 months prison time for an illegal firearms conviction.
