This has been sent to me from my grandfather today. Don't know everything about it yet, but sounds like it needs our attention.

Gun owners... look what's on the 2010 tax return

VERIFIED – TRUE by snopes.com <http://snopes.com/>

http://www.snopes.com/politics/guns/blairholt.asp <http://www.snopes.com/politics/guns/blairholt.asp%20>

As if we didn't have enough to get upset about! If you have a gun, I hope
it isn't registered!

It begins ... more Freedom gone ... the right to protect yourself and your
family gone! Now ALL GUNS must be listed on your next (2010) tax return!

Senate Bill SB-2099 will require us to put on our 2009 1040 federal tax
form all guns that you have or own. It will require fingerprints and a tax
of $50 per gun. This bill was introduced on February 24, 2009, by the Obama
staff. BUT, this bill will only become public knowledge 30 days after the
new law becomes effective! This is an amendment to the Internal Revenue Act
of 1986. This means that the Finance Committee has passed this without the
Senate voting on it at all. Trust Obama? You must be kidding!

The full text of the IRS amendment is on the U.S. Senate homepage:
www.senate.gov <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.

Text of H.R.45 as Introduced in House: Blair Holt's Firearm Licensing and
Record of Sale Act of 2009:
www.opencongress.org/bill/111-h45/text <http://www.opencongress.org/bill/111-h45/text>

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

It has begun ... Whatever Obama's "Secret Master Plan" is ... this is just
the 'tip of the iceberg!'

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

Even gun shop owners didn't know about this because the government is
trying to fly it under the radar as a 'minor' IRS revision, and, as usual,
the 'political' lawmakers did not read this bill before signing and
approving it!

To find out about this - go to any government website and type in HR 45 or
Goggle HR 45 Blair Holt Firearm Licensing & Record of Sales Act of 2009.
You will get all the information.

Basically this would make it illegal to own a firearm - any rifle with a
clip or ANY pistol unless:
1) It is registered
2) You are fingerprinted
3) You supply a current Driver's License
4) You supply your Social Security number
5) You will submit to a physical & mental evaluation at any time of their

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 and inspect that you are
storing your gun safely away from accessibility to children and fine is
punishable for up to 5 years in prison.

If you think this is a joke - go to the website and take your pick of many
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 away a
little here and there until the goal is accomplished before anyone realizes

This is one to act on whether you own a gun or not.

Dupe of many dupes. Please search for HR45.

I see nothing convincing enough. We'll see when our tax guy does taxes for us. I am so over this crap. Same thing came out last year too.

N37 W119, welcome to CGN but unfortunately this is one that has been posted at least once every couple of weeks.

What scares me is not the misinformation from this guy, but the fact he's a gunnie and so disconnected from the gun politics community that he's put himself out of action.

All my guns fell overboard when my boat capsized...

Total FUD.

It's the thing that will not die. :shrug:

Even if this was true, "don't register your gun", i.e. 'do something illegal' is never a good advice.

Everyone is willing to fight for the rights of "law abiding citizens". None of us should ever knowingly take ourselves out of that category.

Not to throw gas on the fire but...

Just typing in SB-2009 in the search feature brought up these threads.


There's actually a lot more SB-2099 threads, but I got tired of copy and pasting. :rolleyes:

I got this email again recently also. I at least knew it was not true and old.

So i was able to inform the sender that it was not true and to also please spread the word to all who had sent it to him. It is going around again which is why he posted this. Hopefully the OP can also now do that.

We all know emails make there round and always seem to come back around again just from a different person than the first time.
