Many readers of my blog and people that know me are aware I am a strong believer that our freedom requires the ready access to firearms and ammo. I believe it is the fourth balance of power. There has never been genocide in any country that citizens had ready access to firearms and ammo. I believe will all my heart the quote of Thomas Jefferson, “Those who hammer their guns into plows will plow for those who do not."
 
 Now you will understand my concern about how little press House of Representatives Bill 45 has gotten. It has also been referred to as “Blair Holt's Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2009”.   I don’t see where there are any co-sponsors of the bill at this time. That could be one of the reasons. Also, the bill has been in the House Judicial Committee since January. That could be one of the reasons.
 
The bill amends the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act to prohibit a person from possessing a firearm unless that person has been issued a firearm license under this Act or a state system certified under this Act and such license has not been invalidated or revoked. Prescribes license application, issuance, and renewal requirements. In effect the cost of a license could make criminals of firearms owners.
Prohibits transferring or receiving a qualifying firearm unless the recipient presents a valid firearms license, the license must also be verified. The cost to verify and record the transfer appears open. So will be gone the days of handing a family firearm off to the next generation, without a recorded transfer.
Requires notification to the United States Attorney General address changes within 60 days of moving.
 
Requires the firearm to not be loaded except at time of use. Requires the firearm to be stored and locked separately from the ammo. Gone will be the right to carry a loaded concealed firearm or having a loaded firearm in your home for protection (even if you do not have children).
 
Requires the reporting of any lost or thief within 72 hours to the United States Attorney General. 
Prescribes criminal penalties for violations of firearms provisions covered by this Act.
