Here they come, ready or not. Feel the water getting warmer?

Are you ready for the House Bill titled 'HR 45, Blair Holt Licensing and Record Act of 2009'. It will make it illegal to own a firearm unless it is registered with the database in  Washington  D.C. As a gun owner you will have to be finger printed, you will be required to provide your DL#, SS#, you must maintain a valid address at all times, submit to mental and physical health records being put on file, you will also be required to file any address changes and any ownership changes even if a private sale. Each update will cost $25 and if you fail to comply you will lose your right to own firearms. This bill and its language mirror almost completely one defeated last year in the House of Representatives by soon to be Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel. Will we the citizenry be as lucky this time?

 

Pass this on to everyone who believes in strict Constitutionalism and remember that laws only apply to those who obey them. Criminals by definition and nature do not abide by laws. New laws and restrictions only apply to the law abiding citizen and are not written with the criminal in mind. With guns, it is not about having laws on the books to prosecute individuals, it is about taking guns away from the people so that no one has them in the first place. One last item to note, when assuming power and creating a facist state, Hitler was a proponent of strong gun laws because a disarmed populace was much easier to control than an armed one. The kings of old also outlawed weapons of any kind in any region that they conquered to quell the ability of the citizens to uprise against them.

 

The Founding Fathers of this nation understood all of the above and because of this they included the second amendment in the constitution. In fact, they knew that at some point in every society's life span that the need for the population to arise came about. To this end they made the right to keep and bear arms against a tyrannical state an absolute right that could not be revoked. They did this because the first thing tyrants and despots do is to remove a population's right to defend themselves When this is done, the tyrants have no problem with the destruction of society as we know it.

 

Send this on to all true patriots! Protect your Second Amendment!

 

 

The following is a summary of the bill as provided by the Congressional Research Service. If you read the whole bill, you'll find it will effectively preclude the ownership of ANY firearms by law-abiding people unless licensed by the Attorney General. How long do you think THAT would take??

Congressional Research Service Summary

The following summary was written by the Congressional Research Service, a well-respected nonpartisan arm of the Library of Congress. GovTrack did not write and has no control over these summaries.

1/6/2009--Introduced.

Blair Holt's Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2009 - Amends the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act to prohibit a person from possessing a firearm unless that person has been issued a firearm license under this Act or a state system certified under this Act and such license has not been invalidated or revoked. Prescribes license application, issuance, and renewal requirements.

Prohibits transferring or receiving a qualifying firearm unless the recipient presents a valid firearms license, the license is verified, and the dealer records a tracking authorization number. Prescribes firearms transfer reporting and record keeping requirements. Directs the Attorney General to establish and maintain a federal record of sale system.

Prohibits: (1) transferring a firearm to any person other than a licensee, unless the transfer is processed through a licensed dealer in accordance with national instant criminal background check system requirements, with exceptions; (2) a licensed manufacturer or dealer from failing to comply with reporting and record keeping requirements of this Act; (3) failing to report the loss or theft of the firearm to the Attorney General within 72 hours; (4) failing to report to the Attorney General an address change within 60 days; or (5) keeping a loaded firearm, or an unloaded firearm and ammunition for the firearm, knowingly or recklessly disregarding the risk that a child is capable of gaining access, if a child uses the firearm and causes death or serious bodily injury.

Prescribes criminal penalties for violations of firearms provisions covered by this Act.

Directs the Attorney General to: (1) establish and maintain a firearm injury information clearinghouse; (2) conduct continuing studies and investigations of firearm-related deaths and injuries; and (3) collect and maintain current production and sales figures of each licensed manufacturer.

Authorizes the Attorney General to certify state firearm licensing or record of sale systems

They never quit, do they?  To the Marxist, there is never an end to regulations, restrictions, and red tape.

  Tell ya what! Things ain't lookin good all across the board. The Messiah's approval ratings are falling,the sheeple want what they've been promised NOW,campaign contributors want their paybacks YESTERDAY,and the MSM aren't at all happy about being snubbed. The more days that go by,the more I'm becoming convinced that this guy and his administration know absolutely nothing about what their doing.

Read or as I did get the audio book " The Prince" by  Niccolo Machiavellie.  500 years ago he addresses a lot of the issues we have today.

Most of us knew it was going to be like this, But I must admit it is comming about sooner than I expected. This may be one time I don't refrain from tellin some of those idiots "I told you so". As for the imposing legislation, I will finally get to see if the NRA is able to really do us any good.
In all fairness though, it's obvious that this stuff is going to be crammed down our throats just like the obsceneity of this past election was. It is very destressing to me but I've found something that helps calm me some. Buying bulk ammo! What a refreshing experience it is to open a 25lb. case of loaded brass.

Sounds eerily similar to our gun control laws except for the time being  I do not have to provide fingerprints. 
 
Better speak up fellas.

I wish I was able to live in some of the states you guys are from.  Here in NJ, you need a Firearms ID card to buy a BB rifle and a Pistol Purchase Permit on top of that to buy a simple Crossman BB pistol.  Purchase a muzzleloader on-line to be delivered to your door step?  Keep dreaming!!

It's interesting our liberal government wants to deal with criminals by punishing citizens who abide by the law instead of going after the crooks!
