Blair Holt Bill Revisited

September 25th, 2009

Blair Holt lives on in emails

I got another email on H.R.45 – Blair Holt’s Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2009

It does not look like it is going anywhere. No actions since February, no votes. Some email buzz, no co sponsors. A lot of negative buzz about it and almost 7000 people watching it.

You can watch it too. Just join a site like Open Congress and you can see what is going on, set up bill trackers, comment on public boards, etc.

OpenCongress is a free and open-source joint project of two non-profit organizations, the Participatory Politics Foundation and the Sunlight Foundation. Continue reading »

When will they come for you?

This pretty much says it all: Suzanna Gratia-Hupp testimony on second amendment rights

The liberal agenda is to increase federal control over every facet of our lives. One of the most important things for their agenda to succeed is to take control of our right to bear arms. The reason for this is if we have guns we can fight off the jack booted national police force they are about to institute when they come to take us away.

The Department of Homeland Security has already defined groups of people (local copy) who believe in issues such as limiting abortions, animal rights activists, black separatists, tax protesters, even worshippers of the Norse god Odin – as potential “threats.” History shows us that once a group is marginalized it eventually is deemed illeagl or even sub-human and attempts are made to eradicate the group.

The so-called intelligentsia in this country has already deecided that anybody who believes in a personal God is deluded. “When one person suffers from a delusion it is called insanity. When many people suffer from a delusion it is called religion.” Many religious people also believe that abortion is bad, homosexuality is bad, etc. How long will it be until people that actually believe against what the elitist minority that runs this country are so marginalized that they start locking us up “for our own protection.”

Are you one of the people that “bitterly cling to their guns and religion?” What are you going to do when they come for you in the middle of the night?

Blair Holt’s Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2009

September 24th, 2009


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.
We just learned yesterday about this on the Peter Boyles radio program.
Even gun shop owners didn’t know about this because it is flying under the radar.
To find out about this – go to any government website and type in HR 45 or Google HR 45 Blair Holt Firearm Licensing & Record of Sales Act of 2009. You will get all the information.

Basically this would make it illegal to own a firearm – any rifle with a clip or ANY pistol unless:

  • It is registered
  • You are fingerprinted
  • You supply a current Driver’s License
  • You supply your Social Security #
  • You will submit to a physical & mental evaluation at any time of their choosing
  • Each update – change of ownership through private or public sale must be reported and costs $25
    – Failure to do so and you automatically lose the right to own a firearm and are subject up to a year in jail.
  • There is a child provision clause on page 16 section 305 stating a child-access provision. Gun must be locked and inaccessible to any child under 18.

The Government would have the right to come and inspect that you are storing your gun safely away from accessibility to children and fine is punishable for up to 5 yrs. in prison.

If you think this is a joke – go to the website and take your pick of many options to read this..

It is long and lengthy. But, more and more people are becoming aware of this. Pass the word along.
Any hunters in your family – pass this along. Peter Boyles is on this and having guests. Listen to him on KHOW 630 a.m. in the morning.
He suggests the best way to fight this is to tell all your friends about it and “spring into action”. Also he suggests we all join a pro-gun group like the Colorado Rifle Association, hunting associations, gun clubs and especially the NRA..

This is just a “termite” approach to complete confiscation of guns and disarming of our society to the point we have no defense – chip away a little here and there until the goal i s accomplished before anyone realizes it.
(Did Obama promise transparency? It seems his motives are more and more transparent while his methods are hidden in back rooms.)

This is one to act on whether you own a gun or not.
