    If Bobby Rush had ever left Chicago, he might have discovered that a large majority of states already require hunters and firearm owners to take safety classes. So the safety provision of this bill becomes a TV on a honeymoon, completely worthless. Instead, encourage and support the idea that all states have good hunter safety programs. At the end of the day the bill does nothing to improve safety. This bill is a waste of time and effort and as many people have indicated criminalizes an entire group with the stroke of a pen, so people feel “safe” from people who ignore the law anyway. I am stunned that people and businesses are worried about me with a CCW permit. After sitting through Death by Powerpoint, FBI “Q” test, fingerprinting, photos, shooting 4 or 5 days a month and registration on an “armed and dangerous” database, I am the guy that worries you? We need to correct blight and poverty in inner cities, and prosecute violators, not criminalize DU, PH, and NRA members.

    BD It’s not the fact that people are killed by guns, it’s the fact that now they are worried about themself, because they know how angry the people are becoming, That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!!!! Go Texas !!!!

  • seal5055 09/11/2009 8:15pm

    We need to keep the names of these congressmen out there, and the bills that they introduce. Do everything that can be done to get them out of office. Pass the word about them to everyone you know. The media is not going to say or do anything to help get rid of them, it is up to us true Americans to make sure these people are defeated

  • bullettooth60 09/13/2009 9:46pm

    You want to see my gun ownership license? Go look in the friggin CONSTITUTION! Somewhere in the list that’s called The Bill of Rights…in fact, it’s one of the things near the top of that list. GTFO

    I am failing to understand how proving that you are a legal citizen (National ID Card), in order to vote is considered to be some type of undue burden on some segments of society by the liberals, yet this joke of a bill is just fine to those very same liberals.

  • Stryker 09/14/2009 11:35pm

    To clarify my above statement, under this bill you would be required to carry around a firearms card with your picture on it, but being required to carry around a national ID, with your picture on it, in order to prove that you are a citizen, is some type of undue burden. What a cynical, hypocritical un-Constitutional, load of crap this is.

    Ever since Obama has taken office, he has tried to make us 1 Government. Now, our Healthcare isn’t enough, that HE is attacking the Fire Arms Control. It is our right to protect what is rightfully ours. My husband and I have worked so hard to provide our family a roof over our head, like our homestead. Now our government wants control of our fire arms. Our Nation is so undivided right now, that it scares me to think what our President is going to do next. America wake up! We need to get the people that we voted into office to be our voice out of office, and lets put people in there who will fight for us. Lets don’t let the government take over our fire arms. We need our fire arms to protect ourselves from the criminals. Now, if we don’t do what is required, we will be criminals. Where does it end??

  • weld387 09/16/2009 2:25am

    You have GOT TOO BE KIDDING!! it was once said Never trust a Government that won’t trust it’s CITIZENS. This guy must have bumped his head getting out of the shower or something? There is NO WAY I will take part in this facist move to strip away my rights and make money at the same time.

    Any politician who votes for this nonsense should be drug tested and given a mental evaluation ASAP. I propose having anyone who votes for this should be the one who has to knock on the door of gun owners and ask to see his/her license.

  • p14769 09/17/2009 5:49pm

    The only way this administration will get any of my firearms will be out of my cold ded hands! OBAMA and his cronies can Kiss My Ass! Bring it!

  • Airborne 09/18/2009 6:35am

    Of course this is BS and has no way of passing and I read the link – “why do people submit bills that are dead when they are submitted”. They just want to get noticed, stir up the water, or have people look at them saying "Oh, that guy is someone we should look at for XXX when we want somebody for XXX. We should have a bill introduced that impeached congressmen/women who introduce bills like this. It’s the same thing as frivolous law suits, you can be counter sued for that, why don’t we make them accoutable for introducing stupid,ridiculous legislation that is going nowhere, will never go anywhere and wastes the government’s time as well as gets the country up in arms over nothing! DON’T MAKE ME COME DOWN THERE – Right now writing my congressman to have him submitting a bill that prevents idiots like this one from submitting a bill like he did! And everyone else should too!! Airbone

  • JimPA 09/18/2009 7:24am

    My right to own firearms, as defined, is an unalienable right, not granted me by the government, and which the Constitution of the United States is supposed to afford the citizen a protection against the interference of this right by the government. Too many for too long have been willing to sacrifice rights in favor of the “common good”; I’m sorry, but this is far too socialistic for me. These people have been sworn to defend and uphold our Constitution, yet it seems to be tossed aside further and further with each and every move they make.

  • fosterjim8866 09/19/2009 6:35am

    almost seems we are headed for another civil war in this country.

  • 1485431 09/21/2009 12:48pm

    This is just another one of the lies Obama fed everyone during his campaign. Is anyone surprised? He must first force every law abiding american to register their weapons and then he will have all the information he needs to round up and confiscate all registered weapons. HR45 does Obama’s bidding to get all firearms registered while making you a lawbreaker if you have a firearm and fail to get a liscense. Is this when Obama’s Civilian National Police force (New Black Panthers) take’s over.
    Has anyone checked the ongoing amendment(Senate Bill SB-2099)to IR Act of 1986? 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 Feb.. 24, 2009 by the Omama staff. HR-45 and SB-2099 seem to go hand in hand. Wow!
    Trust Obama? … you must be kidding! We freedom loving Americans must do everything in our power to stop this irresponsible run away goverment.

  • shaneck 09/21/2009 5:15pm

    we the people disagree with the federal government and the president to try and take our rights to the 2nd amendment away?if they think they can then the US is in for the long hall!the federal government with oboma being the president is all wrong!giving the criminals the right to do what they do best!destroy us as people.we as the people have the right to hire and fire any who is involved in the corruption of the government!what in the lords name gave you the right to charge us hunters a $50 charge to own our own weapons!what you are really doing is giving the communist lovers and worshipers a chance to take our lands and freedom!your not doing us any good with all the problems you let happen!we will not and should not have to give up our rights and our amendments!Oboma including!we the people don’t care what you all think!but we do care on what you do!the bill you are trying to pass is treason against our rights and freedom!and if anyone is in agreement to the bill than you r wrong!

  • rrkaunis 09/22/2009 5:20am

    This looks a lot like some of the actions of 1930’s Germany. Citizens unarmed are far easier to manipulate, as they rely on the same government that is trampling their rights for protection they can no longer provide for themselves. This is like a very bad dream.

  • deathfromabove1977 09/22/2009 7:39am

    A lot of people thought the the bureaucrats dismantled the Constitution when they passed the “patriot act” I agree.
    This bill will complete the task of dimantling of our Constitution.
    It’s time we as Americans stood up and said enough is enough we seem to elect people that we think have our intrest at heart come to find out they have a set agenda.
    Our fore fathers that took the time and remember the Tranny they endured prior to the writing of our Constitution, only to be torn apart by some bureaucrats 233 years later.
    They gave me the right to own guns,good luck taking them. not a chance in hell.

    Actually, they didn’t give you the right to own guns. They just recognised that it is a right you were born with, and they tried to protect it from the government.

  • karlfabian 09/22/2009 4:20pm

    Government should be regulating gang bangers and illegal gang gun activities instead of making citizens more vulnerable to their criminal violence.
    Who will disarm the criminals. It won’t be Obama he will more than likely attempt to hire mercenaries, Russian mostly.
    There are districts today the police will not enter because the gangsters are in total control.. Maybe Obama can hire them since I’m sure there related somewhere in history. They already have the drugs to not give a shit and the weapons arsenals.Maybe Obama’s civilian army is all those in prisons waiting for him to release them.
    I think total removal of all gun control is the answer.
    The west was not won throwing rocks.
    Why are we disarming our police forces and giving them less authority and less firepower options to defend and carry out their duties.
    What? the National Guard Posted on the Southern border with out bullets?

  • MBELLOWS 09/23/2009 5:59am

    Obama, Nasty pelosi, and anyone in agreement of this bill is ANTI AMERICAN and a Communist, Remember hitler WW II his SS, This is the Wrong part of history to repeat

  • m2m3mg 09/23/2009 10:42pm

    To the American Congress, we as a people BEG you to get to the peoples level. You have lost sight of what it is to be a person of the country. You are not there to look down your nose at us “little people” and try to push your wants onto us. You are there to voice OUR wants. The numbers speak for themselves. 12227 opposed 233 in favor 52 to 1!!!! Kill this now!!!!!

  • rbowen1949 09/24/2009 8:04am

    I think if they pass this gun law,We may as well be living in a communist country, Because our rights don;t count. I have come to the conclusion if they pass this thing, they will be a lot of good people in prison, Well they can give me free rent,electric, food, gas, water,there’s going to be a lot of people I know, so I won"t be by my self, I will not folunter my guns to know one, Just think of all those people they will have to feed

  • goldhnt 09/28/2009 6:36am

    If the senate vote for this bill,they all need to get thir ASS out of office.

  • rightontarget 09/29/2009 8:23pm

    Seriously? It’s bad enough we have to submit to registering ourselves just so we can walk down the street and feel secure.
    Regisiter my guns so my neighbors can obtain that list? Haha..funny.
    Regisiter my guns so you can be aware of what your comming into when you break down my door? I’ll save you the trouble and inform you now….you won’t be walking out. Enough said?

    There are no laws that grant the people the right to protection-no one is assigned to protect me-I don’t get issued an armed guard to protect me while I walk my dogs at night in a drug/gang infested city. However, the 2nd. Ammendment allows me the option of taking care of that myself…God forbid I ever need it…but if I do, I know my chances of surviving are greater than if I had to wait for the cops.

  • MGGood 10/01/2009 3:13pm

    This bill is completely absurd. I am a proud gun owner, hunter and outdoorsman. I am not a criminal, but I would like to think that I have the right to protect my family and home without becoming one. Punish the criminals for gun crimes, don’t take away our rights. Does anyone in DC have any common sense?
