    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.

    H.R. 45 - Summary: Blair Holt's Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2009 (GovTrack.us)

    Here is the summary you can use it to access the full bill.

    So?

    So?

    I didn't read that in the link but if true I'm not too keen on the idea. Is it a safety test or something? Can it be retaken?

    I didn't read that in the link either but I'm fine with that.

    Whack.

    Search Results - THOMAS (Library of Congress)

    I read about this earlier in the year. Last I heard it was relegated to Committee where it will die a deserved death.

    I will shoot down any person who votes for this bill.

    Democracy requires a shot glass of lead.

    Mostly it just looks like they are combining the current databases so when you go across state lines it would prevent you from being wrongly arrested.

    I don't want ANY GOVERNMENT telling me when or where I can not be or be wrongly arrested!

    Yawn! .....

    More rants from the "Obama is gunna take my guns" crowd

    HR 45 will never see the light of day. But to make sure it doesn't, why don't you tap into your childrens college fund and send it to the NRA?

    You can never be too safe
