Slithering in through the back door - HR45

No action yet, except it is in committee...

I posted last night on the USCCA Forums that the Administration wouldn't begin with a frontal assault on our Second Amendment rights. I think that Holder spoke out of turn by actually announcing publicly what the current administration intends to do to us. (Again, it isn't that they don't WANT to do this, they just don't want to do this right now.)

So, this bill is is languishing in committee. It is probably sitting there awaiting the right time to spring it upon us-but maybe I am just being cynical (hey, it has happened before).

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.

Maybe I am being alarmist in mentioning it. It was important enough for someone to email this alert to me, so I think I ought to at least pass it along to my readers (few though they may be).

Read the bill. Make your own determination about its contents. Contact your representative in Congress. Then contact them again by a different method. Then tell anybody you know who might care about this issue. Screw being polite about it, this government wishes to disarm you! OBAMNATION (Openly, By Any Means Necessary, As They Identify Opportunistic "Needs")

We are in for a long battle to retain our rights...
