House Resolution 45, 'Blair Holt's Firearm Licensing and Rec

#1 Post by john » Wed Feb 04, 2009 8:54 am

This bill requires special licensing to own a handgun or semi-automatic rifle with detachable magazine.
I've attached a copy of a bill introduced in the House that will make you a criminal if you own a semi-auto rifle w/detach magazine (like a Ruger 10/22), or any handgun (like a Ruger Single-Six revolver) without a special license (much like a passport - picture, thumbprint, etc...); or if you allow anyone under 18 access to it (don't take your children shooting with those firearms). You will not be able to sell that firearm on your own either (you will have to go through a specially licensed dealer at extra cost to you).

If this bothers you, please let our congressman know (Rep Don Young, Fairbanks office (907) 456-0210). I'd get a head of this and let Mark Begich and Lisa Murkowski know what you think as well (Begich (907) 272-6275 and Murkowski (907) 456-0233).
I've already submitted my comments on this and you can too by going to the web sites below to send a comment
