I just picked this up from over at WarRifles. It sure as hell didn't take them long did it. No more private sales and a renewable license for everthing.

I wouldn't sweat it too much. It has been sent to committee so it will probably never be seen again. I also noticed no cosponsors. If it comes out of committee then call your congressman.

As mentioned, this has bill has been introduced before. It's largely just a Illinois Congressman Rush pandering to the antigun crowd by mentioning Blair Holt. I doubt it will go anywhere.

When 'license" is mentioned.......is this the "stupidly expensive FFL" type "license," or is it something different?

What good will a license do? It won't prevent dishonest people from owning guns, and those are the people causing the problems.
