Well fellow gunnies, the battle is joined. We have our first anti-civil rights legislation of the 111th Congress. Rep. Bobby Rush (Totalitarian-IL) has introduced the "Blair Holt's Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2009". To spare you all the reading, here are the highlights:
- Creates a national firearms licensing scheme.
- Licenses are good for 5 years and are shall issue. Licenses must be renewed every 5 years.
- All transfers must take place through a licensed dealer.
- The AG gets a full record of every firearm transfered. Can you say "Gun Registry"?
Remember to use the term "civil rights". The Second Amendment is as much a civil right as the First, the Fourth or any other, and deserves the same protection.
