    The Blair Holt Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2009 was recently introduced in the House. It would make it illegal to own a firearm unless it is registered; you are fingerprinted; and you supply a current drivers license and SS#. Each private sale must be reported and a $25 fee paid. I just heard about this. It may be going nowhere but let your Congressman know how you feel. We must be better informed and more vigilant now than we have ever been.

    The problem here, Bryce, is that the anti-gunners want tests, examinations, and other criteria to prove "fitness" to own a gun, because they will use this as a springboard to add more and more criteria and toughen what they have until only the rich and well connected can own a gun.<br>

    What most gunowners here want is not restrictions on law abiding citizens, but stiffer penalties on criminals who abuse guns.<br>

    And another thing.... Why should I have to provide more documentation to own a gun than Obama has to provide to be president?

    Make no mistake, gun confiscation/registration is still on their agenda. When they get all their other wants out of the way, we had better look out. Hillary has already had her once in a liftime duck hunt. That makes her a sportsman. I am sure she has our best interest at heart. When Odumba and his trusty skank Pelosi get you to paying for free health care for everyone, including illegals, you won't have the money to buy shot anyway.
