Posted on 02/05/2009 10:20:36 PM PST by garyhope
The liberals are at it again. In a new bill introduced the first day of present session of Congress, and with zero coverage from the MSM, H.R. 45 (Blair Holt's Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2009) targets all gun owners in the U.S.A.
This nefarious bill seeks to strip us all of our Constitutional Rights to possess and bear firearms of any distinction. It requires, within the first two years, that all new guns be registered. The bill goes retroactive after two years. Meaning that two years after the passage of the bill, ALL FIREARMS in a citizens possession must be registered, not just those purchased after the bill passes, and this apparently applies to antique firearms as well.
Every five years the firearm owner must go through a complete renewal process for each weapon owned. Failure to comply carries stiff penalties including confiscation of the firearms and jail time (penalties as high as ten years imprisonment in some cases). The bill also authorizes government searches without warrant, the creation of a federal bureaucracy to monitor firearm possession, etc.

Well we figured it was coming.
Before they take my guns away from me, they have to find them. ;-)
I’m writing another check to the NRA.
Our government really believes that...we all are criminals.
No they don't, they know they can't control us. If they make us criminals then they think they can control us.
From my cold dead hand.
I’d rather fall down a cave.
Luckily, I’m never in a position for that to happen.
Last I heard, this was in committee and had just about zero chance of ever getting onto the floor for a vote...
"..In his youth, he volunteered for the Army but went AWOL in 1968 and co-founded the Illinois Black Panthers following the assassination of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.
His connection to the Black Panther Party began unraveling shortly after a 1969 police raid that killed deputy chairman Fred Hampton, 20, and Mark Clark, 21. Rush had left only hours before.
Rush ran a medical clinic that developed the nation's first mass sickle cell anemia testing program.
He also served six months in prison for illegal possession of firearms..."
He wants gun owners to do time like he did. He is still a vicious radical. He proposed other gun legislation in the past that went nowhere, but with Democrat majorities in both houses and Obama President who knows? I know gun rights lobbys will fight it tooth and nail.
Couldn't help but notice he has exactly ZERO co-sponsors on this bill. BTW, I couldn't make your link work and the one I tried to make wouldn't work either. Does it work for you? They seem to have an odd way of doing their internet addies. Near as I can tell the only way to get there is fro their SEARCH PAGE.
HMMMMM.....! You are right about the link. I don’t know why
they tricked the site up not to display the search?
It will be a bloody day in America when the government comes to the suburbs trying to confiscate guns off of law abiding citizens.
I can see otherwise law abiding citizens getting violent if the try to enforce something like this.
I guess Bama will need to keep Guantanomo open! They’re going to need the room.
we’ve been dancing on the precipice for 8 years.
