Are you ready for the House Bill titled 'HR 45, Blair Holt Licensing and Record Act of 2009'. It will make it illegal to own a firearm unless it is
registered with the database in Washington D.C. As a gun owner you will have to be finger printed, you will be required to provide your DL#, SS#, you
must maintain a valid address at all times, submit to mental amd physical health records being put on file, you will also be required to file any
address changes and you any ownership changes even if private sale. Each update will cost $25 and if you fail to comply you will lose your right to
own firearms. This bill and its language mirror almost completely one defeated last year in the House of Representatives by soon to be Chief of Staff
Rahm Emanuel. Will we the citizenry be as lucky this time?
Pass this on to everyone who believes in strict Constitutionalism and remember that laws only apply to those who obey them. Criminals by definition
and nature do not abide by laws. New laws and restrictions only apply to the law abiding citizen and are not written with the criminal in mind. With
guns, it is not about having laws on the books to prosecute individuals, it is about taking guns away from the people so that no one has them in the
first place. One last item to note, when assuming power and creating a facist state, Hitler was a proponent of strong gun laws because a disarmed
populace was much easier to control than an armed one. The kings of old also outlawed weapons of any kind in any region that they conquered to quell
the ability of the citizens to uprise against them.
The Founding Fathers of this nation understood all of the above and because of this they included the second amendment in the constitution. In fact,
they knew that at some point in every society's life span that the need for the population to arise came about. To this end they made the right to
keep and bear arms against a tyrannical state an absolute right that could not be revoked. They did this because the first thing tyrants and despots
do is to remove a populations right to defend themselves. When this is done the tyrants have no problem with the destruction of society as we know
Send this on to all true patriots! Protect your Second Amendment!
The following is a summary of the bill as provided by the Congressional Research Service. If you read the whole bill, you'll find it will effectively
preclude the ownership of ANY firearms by law-abiding people unless licensed by the Attorney General. How long do you think THAT would take??
