Subject: House Bill HR45

Are you ready for the House Bill titled 'HR 45, Blair Holt Licensing and

Record Act of 2009'. It will make it illegal to own a firearm unless it is

registered with the database in Washington D.C. As a gun owner you will

have to be finger printed, you will be required to provide your DL#, SS#,

you must maintain a valid address at all times, submit to mental and

physical health records being put on file, you will also be required to

file any address changes and any ownership changes even if a private sale.

Each update will cost $25 and if you fail to comply you will lose your

right to own firearms. This bill and its language mirror almost completely

one defeated last year in the House of Representatives by soon to be Chief

of Staff Rahm Emanuel. Will we the citizenry be as lucky this time?

Pass this on to everyone who believes in strict Constitutionalism and

remember that laws only apply to those who obey them. Criminals by

definition and nature do not abide by laws. New laws and restrictions only

apply to the law abiding citizen and are not written with the criminal in

mind. With guns, it is not about having laws on the books to prosecute

individuals, it is about taking guns away from the people so that no one

has them in the first place. One last item to note, when assuming power

and creating a facist state, Hitler was a proponent of strong gun laws

because a disarmed populace was much easier to control than an armed one.

The kings of old also outlawed weapons of any kind in any region that they

conquered to quell the ability of the citizens to uprise against them.

The Founding Fathers of this nation understood all of the above and

because of this they included the second amendment in the constitution. In

fact, they knew that at some point in every society's life span that the

need for the population to arise came about.. To this end they made the

right to keep and bear arms against a tyrannical state an absolute right

that could not be revoked. They did this because the first thing tyrants

and despots do is to remove a population's right to defend themselves.

When this is done, the tyrants have no problem with the destruction of

society as we know it.

Protect your Second Amendment!

This is the Bill that was discussed in this weeks Outdoor News. My blood was really boiling after reading what someone actually thought was a good way of going about getting guns off the street.

The only people who would register are the honest ones and some hunters. The people committing the crimes are not going to register their guns and provide all that information. The people who wrote this bill are living in la la land.

This is another example of why I belong to the NRA. I do not always agree with what they want to do but, they do go to battle with the govermant against all this gun control. A simple $25.00 annually can go a long ways in protecting ones gun rights.

I agree this is nothing to laugh at as it could get passed. Forget the scare tactics, it will be to late to do anything when the l;aw is passed.

Call your reps now and let them know how you feel at a minimum.

    • One More Cast      Photo by:  Roger Abraham   If any of you out there are regular readers of my tales, you have followed my recent struggles with back and knees.  I can’t put a name to this drive I have to be on the stream as of late.  It borders on obsession. I guess in my mind if I am healthy enough to fish the world is right with me and I am not getting old and feeble.      Today I was a witness to that I am not the only one.  Lots of anglers and hunters live to go out into the outdoors. .  It is what drives them.  It makes them feel alive.  It is their passion.  I told my fishing buddy Abe today my thoughts.  I told him how I was feeling a little old.  I guess my 60th birthday coming up next month makes me feel mortal.  Abe laughed and said I was a young buck compared to him.  Abe turns 76 this year.     Abe told me tales about catching big trout in tiny streams in Wisconsin and out west.  The twinkle in his eye when he reminisced I had seen before in many trout anglers.      We fished a stretch for 2 hours.  I sat down and rested often.  Abe kept on fishing. He got hung up in a box elder branch and lost a lure.  Abe told me box elders trees were his nemesis when he fished.   He asked me which tree was my kryptonite.  I told him, "ones with branches."  We both had a chuckle and continued fishing.   I thought to myself this guy is really driven.  I hope I am like him at 76.     We got to the vehicle and Abe wanted to continue fishing.  Abe’s waders sprang a leak earlier and he fell in the water a couple times.  He was quite wet.  He wanted to change in to dry clothes before we continue.  Abe peeled off his wet shirt and there were two things stuck to his chest.  He could tell by my questioning look he needed to tell me what was up.     Abe told me he had been having heart problems lately and he was supposed to be wearing a heart monitor.  He left it in the car because he was afraid of getting the electronics wet.  Here I have been whining about being old and the guy I was fishing with left his heart monitor in his vehicle.      Abe reassured me that he was in no danger and he could continue fishing.  I started brainstorming on a place to fish where it was not so hard walking.  Now that I knew he was not as healthy as he looked I wanted an easy place to fish.  I knew the place and it was upstream 5 miles.     We arrived at the well manicured field.  It looked like a golf green.  I picked the area because the farmer kept sheep and goats on the land and the weeds and brush were gone because of the goats.  We walked and fished.     Abe told tales of the old days and of fish lost and landed.  I walked a little forward to fish and looked back to check up on Abe.  What I saw when I looked back scared me and I immediately asked Abe if he was ok.  Abe was laying flat on the ground face down.  I thought the worst and he could tell by my face.  He told me to calm down.  His back was acting up and he needed to straight it out and that was the best way to do it.   We fished a little bit more and he took a photo of me.  He liked the lighting. He told me it captured the essence of trout fishing.  He did not have a camera.  I let him use mine.  He was not camera savvy and needed an impromptu lesson on how to use it.   We drove to his car and we talked about our love of the outdoors. We shook hands and headed our separate ways and promised to fish again soon.  As I drove home I smiled and thought about how I am going to be when I am 76.  I hope I am like Abe and my eyes still twinkle when I talk of chasing trout and I am still driven to make one more cast.
    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
