I just got the following as an e-mail today, and since I don't see anything else about it posted already, I thought I would post it myself. My apologies if there's already a similar thread. The bill is essentially a draconian modification to the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act.

Blair Holt Firearm Licensing & Record of Sale Act of 2009


Very Important for you to be aware of a new bill HR 45 introduced into the House.
This is the Blair Holt Firearm Licensing & Record of Sale Act of 2009.


We just learned yesterday about this on the Peter Boyles radio program.


Even gun shop owners didn't know about this because it is flying under the radar.


To find out about this - go to any government website and type in HR 45 or Google HR 45 Blair Holt Firearm Licensing & Record of Sales Act of 2009. You will get all the information.


Basically this would make it illegal to own a firearm - any rifle with a clip or ANY pistol unless:


.It is registered


.You are fingerprinted


.You supply a current Driver's License


.You supply your Social Security #


.You will submit to a physical & mental evaluation at any time of their choosing


.Each update - change or ownership through private or public sale must be reported and costs $25 - Failure to do so you automatically lose the right to own a firearm and are subject up to a year in jail.


.There is a child provision clause on page 16 section 305 stating a child-access provision. Gun must be locked and inaccessible to any child under 18.


They would have the right to come and inspect that you are storing your gun safely away from accessibility to children and fine is punishable for up to 5 yrs. in prison.


If you think this is a joke - go to the website and take your pick of many options to read this. It is long and lengthy. But, more and more people are becoming aware of this. Pass the word along. Any hunters in your family - pass this along.


Peter Boyles is on this and having guests. Listen to him on KHOW 630 a.m. in the morning. He suggests the best way to fight this is to tell all your friends about it and "spring into action". Also he suggests we all join a pro-gun group like the Colorado Rifle Association, hunting associations, gun clubs and especially the NRA.


This is just a "termite" approach to complete confiscation of guns and disarming of our society to the point we have no defense - chip away a little here and there until the goal is accomplished before anyone realizes it.


This is one to act on whether you own a gun or not.


If you take my gun, only the criminal will have one to use against me. HR 45 only makes me/us less safe. After working with convicts for 26 years I know this bill, if passed, would make them happy and in less danger from their victims.

Ok, this prompted me to a reply as I got in quickly, and I notice a trend here.

First, OP, I appreciate your thought, and post, and yes this was discussed before, but we live and learn.

However, to TexasRifleman, responses like your's is exactly why I love this forum. Let me explain.

I know gun restriction is coming, don't get me wrong. But we need a healthy dose of reality once and a while. I love to get experienced perspectives, and know what to actually be focused on.

While your interest is appreciated and encouraged, but we have posting requirements for Activism based on it's purpose being more of a workshop instead of a "hall". http://thehighroad.org/showthread.php?t=270671

If you want to present a specific plan of action that others can emulate in support of RKBA, Activism is the place to present it. It can be something that you've developed, something that you tried and worked, or something that you know about that someone else developed, but it has to have enough detail that others can follow it.

If you want to develop a plan of action, but don't have it fleshed out (or even a complete outline), Activism Discussion is the place to bounce ideas around to develop that plan. Good plans start with a good idea that a framework is developed for and that is eventually fleshed out into a plan of action. AD will help you find folks to build that plan into something we all can use.

If you have a "notice" on some RKBA issue it really belongs in General or Legal since this forum is the "workshop".
