HR 45 – Gun Control Bill


The states are beginning to move to counter this bill that will move us one step closer to fascism in this country.

What is very interesting is that the left continues to scream imprecations and slanders at the right, calling us Hitler and nazis, but the things they stand for are part and parcel of the National Socialist movement that was brought into power in the 1930’s in Germany by a charming (sarcasm here) person. A stunning orator who could summon the emotions of a crowd and make them do things that they wouldn’t normally do under rational thought.

HR45 would move the licensing to the federal level and would require things such as:

SEC. 102. APPLICATION REQUIREMENTS.

(a) In General- In order to be issued a firearm license under this title, an individual shall submit to the Attorney General (in accordance with the regulations promulgated under subsection (b)) an application, which shall include–

(1) a current, passport-sized photograph of the applicant that provides a clear, accurate likeness of the applicant;

(2) the name, address, and date and place of birth of the applicant;

(3) any other name that the applicant has ever used or by which the applicant has ever been known;

(4) a clear thumb print of the applicant, which shall be made when, and in the presence of the entity to whom, the application is submitted;

(5) with respect to each category of person prohibited by Federal law, or by the law of the State of residence of the applicant, from obtaining a firearm, a statement that the individual is not a person prohibited from obtaining a firearm;
