maybe a dupe but...

http://www.snopes.com/politics/guns/blairholt.asp

Concerning the Blair-Holt proposed legislation.
  
Senate Bill SB-2099 will require us to put on our 2009 1040 federal tax form all guns that you have or own. It may require fingerprints and a tax of $50 per gun.
This bill was introduced on Feb. 24. This bill will become public knowledge 30 days after it is voted into law. This is an amendment to the Internal Revenue Act of 1986. This means that the Finance Committee can pass this without the Senate voting on it at all.
The full text of the proposed amendment is on the U.S. Senate homepage,http://www.senate.gov/ You can find the bill by doing a search by the bill number, SB-2099.
You know who to call; I strongly suggest you do. Please send a copy of this e-mail to every gun owner you know.

Congress is now starting on the firearms confiscation bill. If it passes, gun owners will become criminals if you don't fully comply.



H.R.45 : 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.
Sponsor: Rep Rush, Bobby L. [IL-1] (introduced 1/6/2009)      Cosponsors (None)
Committees: House Judiciary
Latest Major Action: 2/9/2009 Referred to House subcommittee. Status: Referred to the Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security.
It has started.
Very Important for you to be aware of a new bill HR 45 introduced into the House. This is the Blair Holt Firearm  Licensing & Record of Sale Act of 2009.
Even gun shop owners didn't know about this because the government is trying to fly it under the radar.
To find out about this - go to any government website and type in HR 45 or Google HR 45 Blair Holt Firearm Licensing & Record  of Sales Act of 2009. You will get all the information.
Basically this would make=2 0it illegal to own a firearm - any rifle with a clip or ANY pistol unless:
-It is registered -You are fingerprinted -You supply a current Driver's License -You supply yourSocial Security # -You will submit to a physical & mental evaluation at any time  of their choosing -Each update - change or ownership through private or public  sale must be reported and costs $25 - Failure to do so you  automatically lose the right to own a firearm and are subject up to a year in jail. -There is a child provision clause on page 16 section 305  stating a child-access provision. Gun must be locked and inaccessible to any child under 18. -They would have the right to come in and i nspect that you are storing your gun safely away from accessibility to children  and fine is punishable for up to 5 yrs. in prison.
If you think this is a joke - go to the website and take your pick of ma ny options to read this. It is long and lengthy.  But, more and more people are becoming aware of this. Pass the word along.  Any hunters in your family pass this along.
This is just a "termite" approach to complete confiscation of guns and disarming of our society to the point we have no  defense - chip aw ay a little here and there until the goal is accomplished  before anyone realizes it.
This is one to act on whether you own a gun or not.
If you take my gun, only the criminal will have one to use against me. HR 45 only makes me/us less safe.

I suspect this is the most telling excerpt from the page. There are NO co-sponsors.

Pro-gun activists are vigilant but don't seem overly worried about it. They point out that the bill's failure to attract co-sponsors is an indication of a lack of enthusiasm for it among other congressmen. They feel it is too far-reaching and repressive of gun owners' rights to merit serious consideration by a majority of Congress.

H.R.45 died in committee. It has no co-sponsors... no activity since it got moved to that committee. It's effectively dead.

The "SB2099" actually stemmed from a bill that was introduced in 2000... and that one died too.

Clearing Up the Rumors: The Truth About The "Gun Tax Bill"
Friday, August 14, 2009

Over the past few months, NRA-ILA has received hundreds of e-mails warning us about "SB-2099," a bill that would supposedly require you to report all your guns on your income tax return every April 15.

Like many rumors, there's just a grain of truth to this one. Someone's recycling an old alert, which wasn't even very accurate when it was new.

There actually was a U.S. Senate bill with that number that would have taxed handguns -- nine years ago. It was introduced by anti-gun Sen. Jack Reed (D-R.I.), and it would have included handguns under the National Firearms Act's tax and registration scheme. This has nothing to do with anyone's Form 1040, of course.

Fortunately, S. 2099 disappeared without any action by the Senate, back when Bill Clinton was still in the White House. We reported about it back then, just as we report about new anti-gun bills every week. Now, it's time for gun owners to drop this old distraction and focus on the real threats at hand.

Politics Blind Alleys On The Information Superhighway
http://www.nraila.org/images/CWCmh809.jpg

During World War II, soldiers stuck on troopships or remote bases would often start rumors, just for the sake of seeing how fast a tall tale would get back to them. All patriotic Americans appreciate what those GIs did to preserve freedom, but we can only imagine what the rumor mill would have been like if the Internet had existed in those days.

The Internet is a wonderful tool for gun owners. You can go online and order hundreds of thousands of gun parts and accessories, look up gun manufacturers’ catalogs, and download reloading data and ballistics tables from your favorite bullet or powder makers. The same goes for range information, hunting tips, firearm history and everything else you can imagine in the world of guns.

In the legislative world, it’s hard to imagine how we got along before the Internet. Just 15 years ago, lobbyists had to send messengers to Capitol Hill to pick up the latest bills; now, I can look at them on my phone while I’m stuck in an airport.

Most important is that we can communicate faster with NRA members and other gun owners than ever before. Fifteen years ago, we could only alert our members to call their lawmakers by sending slow and expensive letters and postcards, or by working the phones, which was just as expensive and less reliable. Now, you can go online to www.nraila.org (http://www.nraila.org/) and sign up for e-mail alerts that will bring you the latest news, as it happens.

But there’s a price to pay for all this. Part of that price is that misinformation travels just as fast as the truth. We see this every day at NRA-ILA, where our staff answers hundreds of phone calls, letters and especially e-mails. Many are from people trying to get the scoop on the latest wild story they’ve heard.

In the last few weeks, for example, NRA has received hundreds of e-mails warning us about “S.B. 2099,” a bill that would supposedly require you to report all your guns on your income tax return every April 15.

Like many rumors, there’s only a small grain of truth in this one. It turns out someone’s recycling an old alert that wasn’t even accurate when it was new. There actually was a bill called S. 2099 that would have taxed handguns--nine years ago. It was introduced by anti-gun Sen. Jack Reed, D-R.I., and it would have included handguns under the National Firearms Act’s tax and registration scheme. This has nothing to do with anyone’s Form 1040, of course.

Fortunately, S. 2099 disappeared without any action by the Senate, back when Bill Clinton was still in the White House. We reported about it back then in our Grassroots Alert, just as we report about new anti-gun bills every week. But today, this old news is just a distraction from real threats.

Other stories cross the line from rumor to hoax. One claimed that an “executive order” would ban gun ownership by people over 60. (The “news story” even quoted a nonexistent law professor claiming the idea would be constitutional.) Another claimed that Smith & Wesson would be seized in a government bailout scheme. (Thanks to the post-election surge of gun shopping, Smith & Wesson and other gun manufacturers are doing just fine.)

It turns out that what these two stories have in common is their source. They appeared online, on a blog where they were labeled as “satire.” Unfortunately, a lot of people didn’t read the fine print.

I could go on with more examples, such as the claim that February’s economic stimulus bill was full of anti-gun provisions. (For the record, it wasn’t.) But I’ll close with one that’s near and dear to all shooters: the ammunition shortage.

We all know that ammunition’s been getting more expensive, and lately some calibers can be hard to find at any price. Naturally, according to the Internet buzz, there must be a conspiracy.

As this particular conspiracy theory goes, the government has told ammunition companies that they won’t get government contracts unless they restrict sales to private citizens. That’s similar to a concept once pushed by Bill Clinton’s housing secretary, Andrew Cuomo, who thought the federal government should buy guns only from manufacturers who agree to a “code of conduct” dreamed up by anti-gun groups.

Fortunately, this time fiction is stranger than truth. Ammunition is scarce because--surprise!--people like you and me are buying a lot of it. Far from cutting back, manufacturers are running three shifts a day to keep up with the demand.

Eventually, things may get back to normal. But in the meantime, the only place busier than the ammo factories is--you guessed it--the rumor mill.

Unfortunately there are organizations that are trying to capitalize on the FUD.

For instance, today I received an email from the National Association for Gun Rights (http://nationalgunrights.org/) that claimed that an immediate contribution was needed (http://www.nagr.org/hr45petition1.aspx?pid=he1)to quash HR 45.

Some quick research shows that this is a 2 man show in Colorado (http://nationalgunrights.org/about.shtml)with some serious NRA hate (http://www.nrawol.net/).

I too find the frantic chicken-little posts about HR 45 and related legislation tiring, but we have to realize that lots of the people who post them do so in good faith, deluded by the snake-oil salesmen and charlatans trying to make a buck.
