Here we go again: Blair Holt Firearms Licensing bill

Of course this has not been covered by the media.

Have you heard about the Blair Holt Firearms Licensing bill, H.R. 45.?

This will require a federal license to sell or own a gun. As I read the 13-page bill (surprisingly short and to the point), it looks like it would send gun owners to jail for two years if they fail to let the attorney general know they moved.

I wonder just exactly who they are going to get to go door to door and collect firearms?

Hmmm, since they're not really doing much except standing around out in the middle of the freakin' desert harassing tourists - maybe the BORDER PATROL!

Re: Here we go again: Blair Holt Firearms Licensing bill

The Bill, introduced 1/6/09. has no co-sponsors and was referred to the Subcommittee on

Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security 2/9/09. It has sat there for eleven months without action.

http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d111:h.r.00045:

This bill has no chance of coming to the floor for a vote.

Not sure why it is newsworthy on this forum one year after the bill's introduction.

Actually the first time it was introduced was 2007, where it had the same effect. Just a political stunt of one.

And I found what I want for my birthday...

Of course the civilian version doesn't come with the suppressor (unless I had a class III for it).
