Blair Holt's Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2009 
(Introduced in House)


(a) Findings- Congress finds that--

(1) the manufacture, distribution, and importation of firearms is 
inherently commercial in nature;

(2) firearms regularly move in interstate commerce;

(3) to the extent that firearms trafficking is intrastate in nature, it 
arises out of and is substantially connected with a commercial 
transaction, which, when viewed in the aggregate, substantially affects 
interstate commerce;

(4) because the intrastate and interstate trafficking of firearms are so 
commingled, full regulation of interstate commerce requires the incidental 
regulation of intrastate commerce;

(5) gun violence in the United States is associated with the majority of 
homicides, over half the suicides, and two-thirds of non-fatal violent 
injuries; and

(6) on the afternoon of May 10, 2007, Blair Holt, a junior at Julian High 
School in Chicago, was killed on a public bus riding home from school when 
he used his body to shield a girl who was in the line of fire after a 
young man boarded the bus and started shooting.

(b) Sense of the Congress- It is the sense of the Congress that--

(1) firearms trafficking is prevalent and widespread in and among the 
States, and it is usually impossible to distinguish between intrastate 
trafficking and interstate trafficking; and

(2) it is in the national interest and within the role of the Federal 
Government to ensure that the regulation of firearms is uniform among the 
States, that law enforcement can quickly and effectively trace firearms 
used in crime, and that firearms owners know how to use and safely store 
their firearms.

(c) Purposes- The purposes of this Act and the amendments made by this Act 

(1) to protect the public against the unreasonable risk of injury and 
death associated with the unrecorded sale or transfer of qualifying 
firearms to criminals and youth;

(2) to ensure that owners of qualifying firearms are knowledgeable in the 
safe use, handling, and storage of those firearms;

(3) to restrict the availability of qualifying firearms to criminals, 
youth, and other persons prohibited by Federal law from receiving 
firearms; and

(4) to facilitate the tracing of qualifying firearms used in crime by 
Federal and State law enforcement agencies.


In other words, Sunil . . .

It is more important to Kai Eiselien that . . .

He not be required to register neither his AK-47 or his uzi with a federal 
office as he transports them across state lines, thusly providing 
information to a nation-wide database of all registered firearms that 
could potentially be used for purposes other than suirrel hunting.

This "restriction of his second amendment rights", as I am certain he 
would describe such action, is far more important than . . .

Ensuring access to prescribed medications by citizens whose religious, 
ethical, and moral beliefs differ from those of their pharmacists.

Stay tuned, though, the Idaho House State Affairs Committee is also voting 
on . . .

House Joint Memorial 4

The purpose of this House Joint Memorial is to inform the United States 
Congress the State of Idaho hereby claims sovereignty under the Tenth 
Amendment to the Constitution of the United states and hereby serves 
notice and demand to the federal government, to cease and desist, effective
immediately, federal mandates directly in violation of the Tenth 
Amendment, compulsory federal legislation that directs states to comply 
under civil or criminal penalties or sanctions, or requires states to pass 
legislation or lose federal funding that are beyond the scope of these 
constitutionally delegated powers, shall be prohibited.

Stay tuned, Sunil . . .


Come on, Kai.  Sing along with me.  You know the words.

"The Night They Drove Ol' Dixie Down"
"Virgil Caine is the name,
and I served on the Danville train,
'Til Stoneman's cavalry
came and tore up the tracks again.
In the winter of '65,
We were hungry, just barely alive.
By May the tenth, Richmond had fell,
it's a time I remember, oh so well,

The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down,
and the bells were ringing,
The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down,
and the people were singin'.

They went
La, La, La, La, La, La,
La, La, La, La, La, La,
La, La,

Back with my wife in Tennessee,
When one day she called to me,
"Virgil, quick, come see,
there goes Robert E. Lee!"
Now I don't mind choppin' wood,
and I don't care if the money's no good.
Ya take what ya need and ya leave the rest,
But they should never have taken the very best.

The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down,
and the bells were ringing,
The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down,
and the people were singin'.

Like my father before me,
I will work the land,
Like my brother above me,
who took a rebel stand.
He was just eighteen, proud and brave,
But a Yankee laid him in his grave,
I swear by the mud below my feet,
You can't raise a Caine back up
when he's in defeat."

Seeya round town, Moscow.
