HR 45 - Blair Holt's Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2009 Cliffs: Establishes compulsory shall-issue licensing for all handguns and semi-automatics capable of accepting detachable magazines. No grandfather clause. Now before everyone gets all excited, this happens every legislative session. Some 90%+ of the bills proposed are assigned to committee, attract sponsors, then die of neglect. This bill has no cosponsors at this point and only bears monitoring.
