BEWARE of HR 45 - Blair Holt Firearm Licensing & Record of Sale Act of 2009

I've tried to read and absorb the legalese of HR 45 - you can too if you go (CLICK) here, or here or maybe here.

A summary:
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 anytime 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 subject you to 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.

Perhaps this snippet from the bill says it all:
"SEC. 801. INAPPLICABILITY TO GOVERNMENTAL AUTHORITIES.

2 This Act and the amendments made by this Act shall not apply to any department or agency of the United States, of a State, or of a political subdivision of a State, or to any official conduct of any officer or employee of such a department or agency.
"

How do those who've sworn an (CLICK) oath to the U.S. Constitution square this attack on our inalienable rights with these words (from Wikipedia):

"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God."

  2. Yes, I agree - it's time to ask Congress what is going on.

    This info. was sent to me via email from friends who had done some checking - and had written their Reps. Hopefully this will help to get the word out some more.
