Radical IL Representative Proposes Gun-Confiscating HR 45: Blair Holt's Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2009

This is some of the scariest Draconian legislation we have yet seen come out of liberal IL. It should come as no surprise that this guy and Barack Obama are cut from the same political cloth.

And you haven't heard of this bill? What? The media hasn't mentioned it?

... so much for Obama's transparency promise. Even the most radical Democrats should agree that this totally stinks of anti-Constitutional rights trampling.

This is just the highlights, the meat of the bill is far more invasive. But don't take my word for it- LOOK IT UP YOURSELF (HERE I did it for you) and GET INVOLVED IN YOUR GOVERNMENT before these hidden agenda radical extremists take all your rights away and toss YOU in jail!


Blair Holt's Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2009 - Amends the Brady handgun Violence Prevention Act to prohibit a person from possessing a firearm unless that person has been issued a firearm license under this Act or a state system certified under this Act and such license has not been invalidated or revoked. Prescribes license application, issuance, and renewal requirements.

Prohibits transferring or receiving a qualifying firearm unless the recipient presents a valid firearms license, the license is verified, and the dealer records a tracking authorization number. Prescribes firearms transfer reporting and record keeping requirements. Directs the Attorney General to establish and maintain a federal record of sale system.

(1) transferring a firearm to any person other than a licensee, unless the transfer is processed through a licensed dealer in accordance with national instant criminal background check system requirements, with exceptions;

(2) a licensed manufacturer or dealer from failing to comply with reporting and record keeping requirements of this Act;

(3) failing to report the loss or theft of the firearm to the Attorney General within 72 hours;

(4) failing to report to the Attorney General an address change within 60 days; or
