    From the Congressional record ; OpenCongress Summary:
    The Blair Holt's Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act would establish a nationwide system for prohibiting unlicensed gun-ownership. If approved, the law would require gun owners to apply for five-year licenses to own firearms, and would give the U.S. Attorney General broad authority over the program. There are no co-sponsors to the bill, and there is very little chance it will be adopted. DAMN GOOD THING it will not fly ! Jeff

    The only reason this bill exists at all is that the congressman who introduced it did so because he promised the family of one Blair Holt (a Chicago teen killed by a stray bullet) that he would do something to deal with the easy availability of guns on the streets. It has been largely ignored by other lawmakers because of its personal and self-serving nature and motives.
