    New Gun Bill in the House

    Has anyone seen this? Perhaps it has already come up.

    Link to bill: Search Results - THOMAS (Library of Congress)

    Summary:
    1/6/2009--Introduced.
    Blair Holt's Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2009 - Amends the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act to prohibit a person from possessing a firearm unless that person has been issued a firearm license under this Act or a state system certified under this Act and such license has not been invalidated or revoked. Prescribes license application, issuance, and renewal requirements.
    Prohibits transferring or receiving a qualifying firearm unless the recipient presents a valid firearms license, the license is verified, and the dealer records a tracking authorization number. Prescribes firearms transfer reporting and record keeping requirements. Directs the Attorney General to establish and maintain a federal record of sale system.
    Prohibits:
    (1) transferring a firearm to any person other than a licensee, unless the transfer is processed through a licensed dealer in accordance with national instant criminal background check system requirements, with exceptions;
    (2) a licensed manufacturer or dealer from failing to comply with reporting and record keeping requirements of this Act;
    (3) failing to report the loss or theft of the firearm to the Attorney General within 72 hours;
    (4) failing to report to the Attorney General an address change within 60 days; or
    (5) keeping a loaded firearm, or an unloaded firearm and ammunition for the firearm, knowingly or recklessly disregarding the risk that a child is capable of gaining access, if a child uses the firearm and causes death or serious bodily injury.
    Prescribes criminal penalties for violations of firearms provisions covered by this Act.
    Directs the Attorney General to:
    (1) establish and maintain a firearm injury information clearinghouse;
    (2) conduct continuing studies and investigations of firearm-related deaths and injuries; and
    (3) collect and maintain current production and sales figures of each licensed manufacturer.
    Authorizes the Attorney General to certify state firearm licensing or record of sale systems.

    Yeah it has been posted, not sure where the thread is now, or what the status of this bill is.

    Safe bet that somehow or another anytime a nasty bill like this gets introduced, we find out about it within a week or two.

    Thanks Archer 51. I did a search but must have missed the spelling.

    I have emailed everyone from my state reps to my senators to my congressman. Only one senator and one state rep (who has no way of providing input on this bill) has responded.

    The bill has NO cosponsors. It has been assigned to a committee, buth doesn't mean it will get a hearing.

    The lack of cosponsors in telling. No one wants their name on this thing.
