1/6/2009--Introduced.
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 firearms transfer reporting and record keeping requirements. Directs the Attorney General to establish and maintain a federal record of sale system.

Goes right along with the Assault Weapons ban.

Currently referred to committee.

While a slightly left of center, far left in some areas, I'm 100% pro gun and I own several myself. I suspect this may just pass due to the lopsided 111st it will immediately get challenged and with the current SCotUS line up I bet it will get struck down. Otherwise folks, hit your gun shops and gun shows sooner rather than later, just in case.

When your guns have to be registered you are now catigorized. Now if you report your guns stolen would you be re-catigorized from lets say, "Wolf" to "Sheep"?

Already a few threads on this one...

Here's the oldest, not much action lately, but it's already 19 pages long:

I doubt it will get anywhere, it's not the first time he's tried to wipe his butt with our Constitution and Bill of Rights.

Then again, with Eric Holder's view of our 2nd Amendment...you never know.

Obviously the first step of any tyrannical government that wishes to have complete and total control over its "subjects" would be to disarm them.

The first step in doing that, would be to have a detailed list of those arms and the individuals in possession of them. History tells the story time and time again.

I think that sums it up nicely for my perspective, and many other folks here on ATS. There's going to be a lot more unannounced gun shows if they pass this kind of act.

I figured there would be one out there already, but since I didn't see one hitting the front page that I can remember I thought I may be in the clear. Ahh well, better to be over informed than under in things like this.
