UGH! Yet Again.

This is the text of what I refered to yesterday involving what our government is illegally trying to pull on us. Folks, I think this bill is far fetched. But, given the Demoncrat majority, anything is possible. We all need to mobilize on this one. Personally, I say, fat chance trying to enforce this. However, there seems to be provision written in the bill that would give cause the unlawful search. Rather reminiscent of the 1770's, eh?

Firearms Legislation In The 111th Congress
Gun Owners of America analysis of current House Bills:
H.R. 45: This bill would require a license for handguns and semiautomatics, including those currently possessed. The applicant must be thumbprinted and sign a certification that, effectively, the firearm will not be kept in a place where it would be available for the defense of the gun owner’s family. The applicant must also make available ALL of his psychiatric records, pass an exam, and pay a fee of up to $25. The license may be renewed after five years and may be revoked. Private sales would be outlawed, and reports to the attorney general of all transactions would be required, even when, as the bill allows, the AG determines that a state licensing system is sufficiently draconian to substitute for the federal license. With virtually no exceptions, ALL firearms transactions (involving semiautos, handguns, long guns, etc.) would be subject to a Brady check. In addition, the bill would make it unlawful in nearly all cases to keep any loaded firearm for self-defense. A variety of “crimes by omission” (such as failure to report certain things) would be created. Criminal penalties of up to ten years and almost unlimited regulatory and inspection authority would be established.

On another note, remember to comment on the NAIS (National Animal Identification System) at the USDA. They need to hear from as many as we can get.

Animal owners, consumers and taxpayers: NAIS ALERT! Protect your right to farm and the food supply!The USDA has proposed a rule to mandate premises registration under the National Animal Identification System (NAIS) for existing disease control programs. The draft rule covers programs for cattle, sheep, goats, and swine, but it sets the stage for the entire NAIS program to be mandated for everyone.It is critical that the USDA and Congress hear from the hundreds of thousands of people who will be adversely affected by the NAIS program. This includes anyone who owns even one livestock animal (including a single chicken or a horse), as well as consumers who care about local and sustainable foods, taxpayers who object to wasteful government programs, and advocates for a safer food system.*_STEP 1_: Submit comments to USDA online or by mail.
