I was emailed a link today that has the text of H.R. 45, which is a gun licensing bill.  I have scanned the bill, but have not spent enough time with it.  I thought I would post the link up here, and let you all take a look (if you haven’t yet), and then let me know what you think.

How do you think this bill will affect our rights as gun owners?  Do you think it is something that could be good, or bad?

I see a few things that throw up some red flags in my mind, but I’ll let you all have first crack at it.

One Response to “H.R.45”

  1. I used to be pretty supportive of the idea of a certification and license requirement for gun owners, but I just can’t see how it would work without establishing some sort of gun ownership database. That database is the biggest reason that I think most people oppose a licensing system.

    I wish I trusted our government enough to believe they could put something in place that would make sure that every gun buyer knew how to use the firearms they’re buying without making us subject and vulnerable to future restrictions… or worse.
