Anti 2nd Ammendment Bill

Please read this bill and make sure your representatives hear from you.

H.R. 45: Blair Holt's Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2009 (GovTrack.us)

In part, the bill says this
'(aa) Firearm Licensing Requirement-

'(1) IN GENERAL- It shall be unlawful for any person other than a licensed importer, licensed manufacturer, licensed dealer, or licensed collector to possess a qualifying firearm on or after the applicable date, unless that person has been issued a firearm license--

'(A) under title I of Blair Holt's Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2009, which license has not been invalidated or revoked under that title; or

'(B) pursuant to a State firearm licensing and record of sale system certified under section 602 of Blair Holt's Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2009, which license has not been invalidated or revoked under State law.

'(2) APPLICABLE DATE- In this subsection, the term 'applicable date' means--

'(A) with respect to a qualifying firearm that is acquired by the person before the date of the enactment of Blair Holt's Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2009, 2 years after such date of enactment; and

'(B) with respect to a qualifying firearm that is acquired by the person on or after the date of the enactment of Blair Holt's Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2009, 1 year after such date of enactment.'.



Our Constitution specifically prohibits laws like those proposed above:

Amendment 2 - Right to Bear Arms

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.

Already we need to apply for permits to purchase and permits to carry. This right has eroded so significantly that people who want the Constitution to be treated as the actual law of our nation are considered kooks.

Learn your history. Free societies have the ability for each citizen to defend himself or herself.
