GUN OWNERS BEWARE!

Well kitties it is time to get of your butts and contact your state reps and sentors. Here is some info. Picked up from another BBS I am on:

It seems that the ever so user friendly government we have is looking to make a few changes tp the internal revinue code of 1986. The new amendment is called the 'Handgun Safety and Registration Act of 2000.' Or Bill number SB-2099. You can goto http://www.senate.gov and do a search on the bill number to see for yourself. I think we need to make our voices heard on this matter as soon as possible. After all it is election time and I am sure there are ALOT of our reps. Supporting this crap and they don't want us to call them on it.

Re: GUN OWNERS BEWARE!

This is an attempt to sneak in a few new gun laws without gun owners even knowing. I am posting the bill here.

Re: GUN OWNERS BEWARE!

[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img] This is the typical "back door" tactic by the feds to GET THOSE LISTS no matter what! If they have a LIST....they have your guns. I FULLY EXPECT the scumbag to ink an executive order to establish national gun registration; before his ass is out of there; as a desperate means to leaving a legacy.....besides Monica's blue cum-stained dress, that is. DONATE HEAVILY TO NRA! FAX those scumbag congress democraps and threaten to work your ass off to defeat them.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img]

Re: GUN OWNERS BEWARE!

Typical Democratic horse****.

You've gotta belong to NRA and contribute to GOA.

And never, ever, under any circumstances, vote for anyone who is not willing to declare themselves a friend of the Second Amendment.

Re: GUN OWNERS BEWARE!

I have not read the fed machinegun registration law, mgs and sawed of shotguns and rifles, but I think SB-2099 will make registering handguns just the same as registering machineguns only $50 instead of $250, or $200 - whatever it is now.
Have already written to my two senators as well as putting this on local forums.
Thanks for the info.
Trying to slip this in as a "tax" - is there anything those people will NOT do???

Re: GUN OWNERS BEWARE!

Machineguns are a $200 reg fee. Have been since 1936 (I think) when the MG reg act was penned. Kind of a deal when you consider it against money from that long ago!
VOTE FOR ANYONE WHO IS PRO SECOND AMMENDMENT ! ,Even if they are against some other issue(s) you are for. Firearms are the cornerstone of our Freedom, and without our Freedom, nothing else matters!
Sorry for rambling.

Re: Educate me please.......

Just wondering if someone can give me the quick and skinny on this bill? I'm not very good at sifting through legal mumbo-jumbo.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]

To me it seems like a regular ordinary tax like when you exchange vehicles etc. (don't know if you guys have to pay tax for that though). Which doesn't sound like a bad thing to me, other than the fact it's a tax and we all hate those.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

Please leave the paranoid "UN wants to take over the world" stuff, the derogatory comments, and name calling at the door please (I think you do a whole lot better for your cause when you use proper names instead of insults)

Thanks![img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: Educate me please.......

What it looks to me like is yet another way to create a registry of who owns guns, what they own, and how many they own... That is the part I dont like [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img]

Re: Educate me please.......

This is the start. Remember, their agenda is somewhere down the road, this is only a step to achieve that goal. All it takes is one list, one tax, one anything and we're done. Once momentum starts, it's hard to stop it, so the key is not to even let it get rolling.
