To my gun owning friends,
All the things you are about to read below are not B.S. They are 100% true. Immediately following and in the attachment is a link to the actual HR bill. For those who do not have Internet access I have copied the bill into a Word document. Lost in the Word document are hyper links, within the bill, that provide definitions and explanations. So, if you have access, go to the actual Bill at the link immediately following my comments.
This is the biggest grab at our gun owning rights in the history of our nation and it's all being done under the cloke of darkness. None of the News Networks are covering it. If we fail to rise up and let Washington know about our unapproval of the Bill, it will become law. Read it for yourself. In a nutshell:
- own a firearm, and not have a license to do so; you're paying a fine and going to prison for 2 years
- own a firearm with a kid in the house, and not have the gun or ammo in a place where the kid can't get access to it; you're paying a fine and going to prison for 10 years (There is no definition of - safe place.)
- buy or sell a firearm, without a license: you're paying a fine and going to prison for 5 years
Here's how they define a firearm, so don't even think "your gun doesn't meet the definition," because it's so broad - it does:
(3) The term "firearm" means
(A) any weapon (including a starter gun) which will or is designed to or may readily be converted to expel a projectile by the action of an explosive;
(B) the frame or receiver of any such weapon;
(C) any firearm muffler or firearm silencer; or
(D) any destructive device. Such term does not include an antique firearm.
Our US Constitution is very clear on the issue:
A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state , the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.
If this isn't "infringement" what is?
And the comments about them coming to your house and inspecting are right on. See sections 402 and 403. You might say; "Well I'm not manufacturing." Read all of it. You are "storing." You are "holding." The right wing has being touting for sometime; "A well regulated militia," means - an Army, and therefore the citizens don't have the right to keep and bear." You can bet they stretch the rubber band on this as well.
The time is now - to write, call or go see your elected Congressmen and Senators. Tomorrow may be too late. And, the most important thing you can do is spread the word and send this to every gun owner you know.
At the top of the attachment, just before the House Bill, I've included a section of the US code - which clearly spells out our government's plan to disarm the people. The entire wording is in the hyper link; at the bottom of the link immediately following.
Below is the info that was sent to me, which I have verified (Lee):
What else can we possibly expect from those trusted elected officials in Washington ?
Forward Subject: Blair Holt Firearm Licensing & Record of Sale Act Another persons thoughts:
Very Important for you to be aware of a new bill HR 45 introduced into the House.
This is the Blair Holt Firearm Licensing & Record of Sale Act of 2009.
We just learned yesterday about this on the Peter Boyles radio program.
Even gun shop owners didn't k now about this because it is flying under the radar.
To find out about this - go to any government Website and type in HR 45 or Google HR 45 Blair Holt Firearm Licensing & Record of Sales Act of 2009. You will get all the information.
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.
If you think this is a joke - go to the Website and take your pick of many options to read this.. It is long and lengthy. But, more and more people are becoming aware of this.. Pass the word along. Any hunters in your family - pass this along.
Peter Boyles is on this and having guests. Listen to him on KHOW 630 a.m. in the morning. He suggests the best way to fight this is to tell all your friends about it and "spring into action". Also he suggests we all join a pro-gun group like the Colorado Rifle Association, hunting associations, gun clubs and especially the NRA.
This is just a "termite" approach to complete confiscation of guns and disarming of our society to the point we have no defense - chip away a little here and there until the goal is accomplished before anyone realizes it.
This is one to act on whether you own a gun or not.
If you take my gun, only the criminal will have one to use against me. HR 45 only makes me/us less safe. After working with convicts for 26 years I know this bill, if passed, would make them happy and in less danger from their victims.
Please.. copy and send this out to EVERYONE in the USA who is interested.
