    Are you ready for the House Bill titled 'HR 45, Blair Holt Licensing
    and Record Act of 2009'. It will make it illegal to own a firearm unless it
    is registered with the database in Washington D.C. As a gun owner you will have
    to be finger printed, you will be required to provide your DL#, SS#, you must
    maintain a valid address at all times, submit to mental and physical health
    records being put on file, you will also be required to file any address changes
    and any ownership changes even if private sale. Each update will cost $25 and if
    you fail to comply you will lose your right to own firearms. This bill and its
    language mirror almost completely one defeated last year in the House of
    Representatives by soon to be Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel. Will the citizenry be
    as lucky this time?

    Pass this on to everyone who believes in strict Constitutionalism and
    remember that laws only apply to those who obey them. Criminals by definition
    and nature do not abide by laws. New laws and restrictions only apply to the law
    abiding citizen and are not written with the criminal in mind. With guns, it is
    not about having laws on the books to prosecute individuals, it is about taking
    guns away from the people so that no one has them in the first place. One last
    item to note, when assuming power and creating a facist state, Hitler was a
    proponent of strong gun laws because a disarmed populace was much easier to
    control than an armed one. The Kings of old also outlawed weapons of any kind in
    any region that they conquered to quell the ability of the citizens to uprise
    against them.

    The Founding Fathers of this Nation understood all of the above and
    because of this they included the Second Amendment in the Constitution. In fact,
    they knew that at some point in every society's life span that the need for
    the population to arise came about. To this end they made the right to keep and
    bear arms against a tyrannical state an absolute right that could not be
    revoked. They did this because the first thing tyrants and despots do is to
    remove a populations right to defend themselves. When this is done the tyrants
    have no problem with the destruction of society as we know it.

    Send this on to all true patriots! Protect your Second Amendment

    I emailed my Rep. (House) today to ask him to oppose this Bill. I also urge shooters to join the NRA and let's ban together to stop this type of Bill from further eroding our gun rights. Darrell
