HR.45 is a vile bill now in Congress that would do several very bad things. It would create a NATIONAL registry of all firearms legally owned in the Country. It would require that anyone that owns a firearm and moves has 60 days to update said address for each weapon they own. It would stop all sales of firearms except through licensed dealers. Any sale made without the use of a Licensed dealer would be a Federal Crime. It would create a written exam that must be taken and passed before one can exercise their Second Amendment right to own a firearm. ( anyone else remember how easy it is to fix a written test so people fail? Try poll taxes and voter tests in the South.) It would require that anyone attempting to buy a firearm must release EVERY bit of their medical history to the US Government. It would create a 25 dollar tax on top of all other taxes for any purchase of a firearm.
