    Latest Major Action: 2/9/2009 Referred to House subcommittee.
    SEC. 3. DEFINITIONS.
    (a) In General- In this Act:
    (2) QUALIFYING FIREARM....
    (36) The term `qualifying firearm'--
    (A) means--
    (i) any handgun; or
    (ii) any semiautomatic firearm that can accept any detachable ammunition feeding device; and
    (B) does not include any antique.'.
    SEC. 101. LICENSING REQUIREMENT.
    Section 922 of title 18, United States Code, is amended by adding at the end the following:
    (aa) Firearm Licensing Requirement-
    (1) IN GENERAL- It shall be unlawful for any person other than a licensed importer, licensed manufacturer, licensed dealer, or licensed collector to possess a qualifying firearm on or after the applicable date, unless that person has been issued a firearm license--

    (B) with respect to a qualifying firearm that is acquired by the person on or after the date of the enactment of Blair Holt's Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2009, 1 year after such date of enactment.'.
    So, lets see..
    -You need to have a license to own a handgun or semi-automatic fiream that can take a detachable magazine;

    -You have to register the purchase of new guns of that sort;

    -You have to have a training course to get the license, and

    -Your current guns are not grandfathered from the licensing requirement.


    And the Obamanista say that the pro-gun side is "paranoid".

    Re: Pending Legislation for Federal Licensing and Registration of Guns

    Bobby Rush is a disgrace to everything this country is supposed to stand for. He is a race-baiting political opportunist of the worst kind and now he has declared all-out war on the Second Amendment and the American people. The American government has forgotten its place and they need to be reminded of where they stand and from whom they derive their power.

    I see dark days ahead of us should this law pass. I would urge anyone who has the slightest interest in maintaining the unity and stability of this country to speak out against this bill even if you happen to agree with it. A rift is forming in this country and it is ever-widening, continue to push us and we'll push back.

    This is treason, this is tyranny.

    How about this? Every time you are about to say something controversial or risky you must phone into your local speech registry and obtain a permit? That way we can avoid any instances of hate speech. How could you be against stopping hate speech, I wonder?

    Registration is a preciondition to the exercise of a right that is not inherent to that right. Registration is, therefore, an infringement.

    THAT would be a form of prior restriant. It would also be an infringement.
    It is analogous to a background check (which is also part of this bill).

    It's none of the government's business. Why do they have to keep tabs on it and for what reasons would the government want to keep tabs on what guns you have? If not so they can take them later. I believe we have restricted guns too much already, many of the bans should be lifted. Many of the restrictions should be lifted. You don't need a license to own a gun, you don't need to register with the government to own a gun. It's a right, and rights come without government permission. And encroachment of the right by the government is an act of treason.
