Most of you are probably already aware ob this bill. For those of you that are not...........

On January 6th, Congressman Rush (D) of Illinois introduced the Blair Holt's Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2009 (H.R. 45). The introduction to this bill states the intent of the legislation is "to provide for the implementation of a system of licensing for purchasers of certain firearms and for a record of sale system for those firearms, and for other purposes.

Here are a few places you can get more info and/or keep track of the bill's progress:

The bill has no co-sponsors and no legitimate chance of passing.

An ugly bill, for sure, but nothing to really worry about.

I wouldn't go so far as say nothing to worry about. It has taken a lot of folks writing letters and sending emails to their Congressional Senators and Representatives that have kept it from being co-sponsored and unable to get out of committee. This is the second time it has been introduced to the House and it won't be the last. So if we all stop worrying, and stop sending those emails and letters, one day it will get passed. The last thing we need to do, with the folks we have up in D.C. is to stop worrying.

Bobby Rush is an ex-Black Panther semi reformed radical that no one wants to get close to in Washington, let alone co-sponsor his legislation. But that's where these laws come from usually, the kooks.
