    All right folks, I searched around like this email said to do and this seems legit but I'm still not convinced it's true. I pray to God this is not true. Below is a copy and paste of said "Bill's. Tell me someone this is not TRUE?????

    I'm not sure if this is bogus or not, but all one has to do is not comply. What are they gonna do, come to my house and see how many guns I own and what type?... If this is true I don't see how it could ever be enforced.

    Don't know if it's true or not BUT it would not surprise me if it was true. You know that the government is going to be coming after guns before too much longer. It's the socialist thing to do and we are becoming a socialist country very quickly. It's past time for people to begin to start standing up and say enough is enough.

    Well, nothing comes up under open congress or thomas.gov when I put in that senate bill number. As far as the house bill, it makes a couple of misstatements. First off, there's a clause excluding guns that are already owned, as I read it. I see nothing about requiring the SS number or driver's license. It does require some form of ID and the address. The "you will submit to a mental and physical evaluation" thing is pure crap - that's appears to be a twisting of a clause that says that in order to get a firearms license, the applicant must sign something releasing any such records to the state (in other words, background check - not thrilled with that clause as it doesn't really define what that's used for, but it's not the same thing as evaluations on demand). The $25 dollars appears to be the maximum amount they can charge for a license. I don't see any fee for a transfer. The child access part simply amends a pre-existing code. I don't know if that code has lockdown requirements, but this one doesn't - it says it's unlawful for people to "recklessly" allow access to firearms to children, then further defines to say that doesn't apply if the gun is in a locked cabinet, if the owner is a peace officer, if there is no reasonable expectation of a child being on the property where the gun is, or if the child uses the gun in self-defense. The part about the up to 5 year prison penalty appears to be accurate, but inspections appear to only apply to commercial dealers.

    That's my reading anyway. Can't find the Senate Bill referenced, which is odd if it was already introduced.

    Sorry, one other thing. It doesn't apply to all guns. It does apply to all handguns and semi-automatics that can accept a detachable ammunition feeding device. I don't know enough about guns to know how much that covers. Antiques are excluded. On a personal note, I assume a WWII Colt .45 counts as an antique?

    But I have a concealed handgun license. The only thing this law would do is make criminals out of otherwise law abiding citizens.

    Yeah that is what the intent was but no matter, I heard this was killed but it's something to keep an EYE on. That's why we couldn't find it when we searched.
