My current home doesn't have a verandah but I'd like it to! A long porch surrounding the entire house. With a porch swing, potted blueberry plants, and a long strong dog laying at my feet. The sweet smell of lrosemary and freshly-turned soil wafting across my yard. The chickens clucking contentedly as they scratch for goodies in the fertile dirt. Knowing we have a full root cellar, trees in the orchard about to drop their bounty, and soup made all from hand-picked harvests bubbling in the crockpot. Heaven.

Please move with me over to my current blog, www.rosemary-ridge.blogspot.com ... thank you!

Required Firearm Licensing possible

A good friend sent me a link to the Snopes website, and this claim. Turns out it's partially true. Here's the claim: A bill before Congress would prohibit ownership of handguns by those who
have not obtained firearm licenses.

Yes, it's partly true. Be sure to pass along this info because honestly... I'm not sure WHAT we're going to do. I thought part of the constitution guaranteed us the RIGHT to BEAR ARMS. I didn't realize the Founding Fathers thought we are like children who need oversight. The honest law-abiding citizens, who (mostly) wouldn't hurt anyone but will be the ones who properly inform the government of all weapons owned. The people like gangbangers and assassins who actually use the guns to take human lives will not notify the government. Didn't they think about this? Anyway, here's the info from the snopes website:

It has started.

Very Important for you to be aware of a new bill HR 45 introduced into the House. This is the Blair Holt Firearm Licensing & Record of Sale Act of 2009.

We just learned yesterday about this on the Peter Boyles radio program.

Even gun shop owners didn't know about this because it is flying under the radar.

To find out about this - go to any government website and type in HR 45 or Google HR 45 Blair Holt Firearm Licensing & Record of Sales Act of 2009. You will get all the information.

Basically this would make it illegal to own a firearm - any rifle with a clip or ANY pistol unless:

-It is registered
-You are fingerprinted
-You supply a current Driver's License
-You supply your Social Security #
-You will submit to a physical & mental evaluation at any time of their choosing

Each update - change or ownership through private or public sale must be reported and costs $25 - Failure to do so you automatically lose the right to own a firearm and are subject up to a year in jail.

There is a child provision clause on page 16 section 305 stating a childaccess provision. Gun must be locked and inaccessible to any child under 18.

They would have the right to come and inspect that you are storing your gun safely away from accessibility to children and fine is punishable for up to 5 yrs. in prison.

If you think this is a joke - go to the website and take your pick of many options to read this. It is long and lengthy. But, more and more people are becoming aware of this. Pass the word along. Any hunters in your family - pass this along.

Peter Boyles is on this and having guests. Listen to him on KHOW 630 a.m. in the morning. He suggests the best way to fight this is to tell all your friends about it and "spring into action". Also he suggests we all join a pro-gun group like the Colorado Rifle Association, hunting associations, gun clubs and especially the NRA.

This is just a "termite" approach to complete confiscation of guns and disarming of our society to the point we have no defense - chip away a little here and there until the goal is accomplished before anyone realizes it.

This is one to act on whether you own a gun or not.

If you take my gun, only the criminal will have one to use against me. HR 45 only makes me/us less safe. After working with convicts for 26 years I know this bill, if passed, would make them happy and in less danger from their victims.

= = = = =

NOTE: This hasn't been voted on yet. It was submitted by the Obama administration, and if we're lucky, it will either get lost in etherland, or voted down. Write to your congressmen, etc. if you care about this. It's bill HR-45.

We aren't a violent family. We may have weapons to hunt for food, but having a surprise inspection for them would be a complete intrusion on our privacy. I don't like it, and I feel like this is just the beginning (or middle) or making me even more powerless in controlling my life.

Let's stop HR-45... shall we?
