So the next attack on the 2nd Amendment begins

No, the Evil Party did not learn that attacking firearms ownership and the right to arms is a Bad Thing. Among other bad things, this piece of sh- er, legislation would

1. Require licensing for anybody that owns a gun.

2. Would require photographs and a thumbprint

3. Would require passage of a test that covers:

(A) the safe storage of firearms, particularly in the vicinity of persons who have not attained 18 years of age;

(B) the safe handling of firearms;

(C) the use of firearms in the home and the risks associated with such use;

(D) the legal responsibilities of firearms owners, including Federal, State, and local laws relating to requirements for the possession and storage of firearms, and relating to reporting requirements with respect to firearms; and

(E) any other subjects, as the Attorney General determines to be appropriate;

As the man says, that last is a wide-open door for the government to do anything, including ban anything that makes the GFWs wet their pants.

Start yelling NOW; call/write your congresscritter, and spread the word to everyone you can for THEM to yell at them.

"1. Require licensing for anybody that owns a gun."

"As the man says, that last is a wide-open door for the government to do anything, including ban anything that makes the GFWs wet their pants."

Requiring a "license" _is_ a ban. A license is legally defined as: permission to do that which is otherwise unlawful. If you have to have a license to own a gun then it must be unlawful to own a gun. In other words: guns are banned, but for some period of time we'll issue a license.

I'm sure the period of time will be just long enough to figure out _where_ all the guns are.

The Nazis are back. Hitler was a very charismatic speaker, just like Herr Obama. People followed him worshipfully and with great emotion, not tolerating anyone who disagreed or dared to question. Here we go again.
