    Angry HR45!!

    Concerning the Blair-Holt proposed legislation. Senate Bill SB-2099 will require us to put on our 2009 1040 federal tax form all guns that you have or own. It may require fingerprints and a tax of $50 per gun.

    This bill was introduced on Feb.. 24. This bill will become public knowledge 30 days after it is voted into law. This is an amendment to the Internal Revenue Act of 1986. This means that the Finance Committee can pass this without the Senate voting on it at all.

    The full text of the proposed amendment is on the U.S. Senate homepage, U.S. Senate 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... OpenCongress


    Congress is now starting on the firearms confiscation bill. If it passes, gun owners will become criminals if you don't fully comply.


    Has anyone else heard about this?

    Not an amendment to the Internal Revenue Act. Can't be passed without public knowledge. This is not SB-2099 which was introduced in 2000.

    1/6/2009--Introduced -- In committee with no co-sponsors.

    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.
    Cheers,

    HR45 is real, SB-2099 is not.

    Last I checked HR45 still does not have a co-sponsor. I don't think it can even go to commitee, but we still need to keep an eye on it.

    Always keep an eye open for this sort of thing.

    Assorted amendments have been tacked onto bills without anyone else knowing what the were; that's how some of the pork gets added. An anti gun bill could be added the same way.

    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.
