Thread: Any substance to this?
A bill before Congress would prohibit ownership of handguns by those who
have not obtained firearm licenses.
Very Important for you to be aware of a new bill HR 45 introduced into the
House. This is the Blair Holt Firearm Licensing & Record of Sale Act of 2009.

Apparently, it died in committee this year. But a version of it is submitted each year, and I'm sure it will be again next year. So, keep writing, because if that ever comes to pass, we are all screwed (and I suspect the revolution is near).
OMG, you would only need a permit to transport each firearm and also have the firearms encased in a hard case with a padlock on it to be allowed to transport it and this bill would look exactly the same as we have right now here in Canada.
I am sure this would never happen in the US but be vigilant because now with Obama being the president, there is more pressure to remove or infringe on the rights that the "people" don't believe should be allowed.
Take heed from our situation here in Canada and never become complacent like we have been and never fight among yourselves or you might face the same situation as we are presently living, it is easy to pass laws but when they have been passed then it is a living hell to remove them again.
Now I will step off my soapbox. =oP
Just remember my words and my warning.
