You jumped the gun on closing the thread titled, "This is the scarriest legislation that I have ever heard of." The poster was correct in stating that this bill [HR 45] does indeed exist. It is presently in the Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security of the House Judiciary Committee. I have no idea what chance it has to get out of committee, but you might just want to keep an eye on it. It requires anyone owning a handgun or semi-automatic detachable magazine rifle to have a license to own one of these firearms, said license to be issued by the Attorney General of the United States. There is a lot more in the bill including a requirement to obtain certified training before the license will be issued. You can read it for yourself by going to the link below [which is the Library of Congress website that allows access to all Congressional business including pending legislation] and searching by bill number HR 45.


Always go to the source to verify information.

There is no provision in the bill to report your firearms on your 2009 tax return, but you might just want to read the fine print on this one.

I believe we've discussed this bill in the past as well...it doesn't have a single co-sponsor, and has about a snowball's chance in hell of being enacted. Even the NRA says not to worry about it...for now.
I'm new here and in an effort to try to get involved and contribute, I posted the previous thread. I am surprised that it only lasted 27 minutes before it was closed. The conversation and awareness that this thread have created, were my original intentions.
Don't take it personally...it's just that this topic was already discussed here less then a month ago. There's only so much conversation that can be generated about a bill that gets re-introduced every year but never gains any traction because it has no support from anyone other than its author.

Frankly, I'm glad you're aware of this stuff (as we all should be)...that's why it never gains any support. :thumsup

And don't worry...with the gasbags we have around here, you'll never want for a topic of conversation to contribute to. :laughing
