Big Brother's New Target: Tracking Firearms

"U.S. Representative Bobby Rush (D-Ill.) recently sponsored H.R. 45, also known as "Blair Holt's Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act." The bill is, at its core and as its name implies, a licensing and registration scheme."

So, when do we start to become concerned that B Hussein O's plans for change in this country are changes we are not going to want?

H.R. 45 is an interesting read...I continue to be amazed that "elites" have no understanding that laws do not affect criminals. Especially when the laws have no teeth, cuz the same elite lawmakers could care less whether or not the laws are carried out as long as they are able to carry out their power desires.

To my military mind, it doesn't take a lot of intellejunce to realize that crimes, murders, are perpetrated by people who make sure there is no way to trace them or their firearms.

Inherently insidious in this bill is the requirement that every citizen submit an application to the Attorney General to be licensed to own a handgun.

Tell me again what happened when a bunch of American citizens dumped a bunch of tea in Boston harbor? How would that have turned out if the people had been required to apply to the house of commons, or some other elitist office in order to have a firearm?

This nation carved out its birth on the wings of freedom and liberty.

Today, why are we so concerned to give up our freedom and liberty for a sense of security?

Official crime statistics world-wide reflect the decrease in gun-related crimes when the citizenry are allowed to own handguns; and a marked increase in gun-related crimes where the citizenry are disarmed or controlled by the gummint.

Here in the last week or so, we have been treated to the revelation that our elected lawmakers are just as much criminals as the person sitting in prison for murder or robbery.

And yet, we continue to look to criminals to protect us. Can anyone say the fox guarding the hen house?

Are we experiencing a a nation-wide paranoid schizophrenia?

I am wondering if there are any states that are preparing to secede from the union? Let me know soon, so I can transfer my life to their environs.

If it would do any good, I would beg Scotty to beam me up, but I think it may be too late.
