HR 45 Bill to House Targets Gun Control


Sally Baptiste just informed me about a little known Bill that just recently made it to the House of Representatives that is nothing more than an attempt at doing away with our 2nd Amendment Right:  Gun Ownership.

The HR 45 Blair Holt Firearm Licensing & Record of Sales Act of 2009 was just sent to the House and even many gun shop owners do not know about this Bill because it is “flying under the radar.”  Basically, this “secret” Bill would make it illegal to own a firearm: any rifle with a clip or any hand gun unless:

  1. It is registered
  2. You are fingerprinted
  3. You supply a current drivers licens
  4. You supply a SSN
  5. You will submit to a physical and mental evaluation at any time of their choosing
  6. Each update – change or ownership through private or public sale must be reported and will cost $25.00
  7. Failure to do so will automatically cause you to LOSE the RIGHT to own a firearm and you will be subject to facing one year in jail.
  8. There is a child provision clause on page 16, section 305 stating a child-access provision.  Weapon must be locked and inaccessible to any child under 18.
  9. The Government would have the RIGHT to come and inspect your house to make sure you are storing the weapon safely, away from children, and fine is punishable for up to 5 years in State Prison.

As Sally put it:  “This is just a “termite” approach to complete confiscation of guns and disarming of our society.  Chip away a little here and there until the goal is accomplished before anyone realizes it.”

The HR 45 Bill was very secretly done, but thankfully, the “word” is getting out.

    I was made aware of this through the NRA. Since I live in the People’s Republic of Massachusetts I already have to deal with some of the most intrusive licensing procedures in the United States.. I am on my Reps and my senators to defeat this measure.

    Hey William: Personally, I don’t think it stands a chance….but who knows? It’s good to get the info out there because so many had no idea it was even happening!

    I would hate to see a civil war in these times when the Gov’t. and Military might is so powerful !!! Best way to defeat these types of overtaking is with knowledge, getting involved and letting our voices be heard through the vote! (I hope anyway)….

    Hi Patty: Yes, I heard. The “president” continues to travel voicing his concern on how bad America has been. Only “president” in HISTORY to badmouth his own Country. He told the Mexican people that 90% of guns coming into Mexico are from the USA, and he is going to stop it.

  7. Tim Reveron

    while America is being sold to China one trillion dollars at a time they dont want to buy a country filled with gun toten rednecks that wont stand for the take-over so please give up your guns and just go with the liberal flow of it all

    “…the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” That seems pretty clear to me. Thankfully most of the US Supreme Court understood what that meant also in last year’s decision of District of Columbia v. Heller. It is so important that we vocalize and remind others what our rights are, i.e. elected representatives and our local community. We really need to keep our voices heard to combat the liberal media in its attempt to brainwash our country. Society hears something enough in the media and so often ignorantly believe it to be the truth. Watch out these are dangerous times! Attorney at Law –
