I don't know what to think?
A GOVERNMENT BIG ENOUGH TO GIVE YOU EVERYTHING IS STRONG ENOUGH TO TAKE EVERYTHING YOU HAVE!*
Gun owners... look what's on the 2010 tax return
The American *public had better wake up. *This is about as scary as it *gets. *Talk about a slippery slope. *Hitler started the same *way*. Freedom evaporated before anyone knew what was happening. *
*Subject:* Gun *owners... look what's on the 2010 tax *return
********VERIFIED *– TRUE by snopes.com***

**As *if we didn't have enough to get upset about! *If *you have a gun, I hope it isn't registered! *
*It *begins.... more Freedom gone... the right to protect *yourself and your family gone! *Now ALL GUNS must *be listed *on your next (2010) tax return! *
*Senate Bill SB-2099 will require *us to put on our 2009 1040 federal tax form all guns *that you have or own.
*It *will require fingerprints and a tax of $50 per gun. *
*This bill was introduced on *February 24, 2009, by the Obama staff. *BUT, this *bill will only become public knowledge 30 days after the *new law becomes effective! *This is an amendment to *the Internal Revenue Act of 1986. *This means that *the Finance Committee has passed this without the Senate *voting on it at all. *Trust Obama? *You must *be kidding!
*The *full text of the IRS amendment is on the U.S. Senate *homepage: www.senate.gov<http://www.senate.gov/> . *You can find the *bill by doing a search by the bill number, *SB-2099. *You know who to call; I strongly suggest *you do. *Please send a copy of this e-mail to every *gun owner you know.
*Text of H.R.45 as Introduced in *House: Blair Holt's Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale *Act of 2009: www.opencongress.org/bill/111-h45/text<http://www.opencongress.org/bill/111-h45/text> **
*Obama's Congress is now starting *on the firearms confiscation bill. *If it passes, *gun owners will become criminals if you don't fully *comply.
*It *has begun... Whatever Obama's "Secret Master Plan" is... *this is just the 'tip of the iceberg!' *
*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.
*Even gun shop owners didn't know *about this because the government is trying to fly it *under the radar as a 'minor' IRS revision, and, as *usual, the 'political' lawmakers did not read this bill *before signing and approving it! *
*To *find out about this - go to any government website and *type in HR 45 or Goggle 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: *1) It is registered *2) You *are fingerprinted *3) You supply a current Driver's *License *4) You supply your Social Security *number *5) 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 years 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. *
*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..****
