Increase requirements for firearms purchases, far beyond those ever proposed.
Create a national firearms registry overseen by the Federal Government.
I'm sure I don't have to tell you that gun registration is the first step on the road toward totalitarian confiscation of all firearms by a federal power. In fact, the most brutal dictators of the last century were famous for their gun registration and confiscation schemes. It was easy work for Hitler's brown-shirt Gestapo to confiscate the firearms of German citizens because years earlier, well-meaning liberals had forced all guns to be registered with the government ... all in the name of safety. When Hitler came to take their guns, he had a list of who owned every gun and where they lived! But H.R. 45, Obama's National Gun Registry and Citizen Disarmament Act, is more than just a forced registration of all firearms in America. The bill also makes it increasingly difficult to buy a gun in the first place.
Taken right out of Sarah Brady's Christmas wish list, H.R. 45 includes a laundry list of new restrictions on firearms purchases.
- Pass a written examination to purchase a firearm.
- Release your medical records -- including confidential mental health records -- to the government to get your "fitness" to own a firearm approved.
- Observe a two-day waiting period before all firearms purchases.
Pay a gun tax of $25 or more on all firearm purchases.
- Moreover, H.R. 45 bans all private firearms sales and maximizes penalties for minor clerical errors in dealing with the national gun registry.
The list goes on and on. It's enough to turn your stomach. I know I don't have to tell you, but these restrictions make a mockery of the Constitution. "The Right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed" might as well say: "You have no rights." If a two-day waiting period, a written exam and a gun tax aren't infringing our rights, I don't know what is!
The National Association for Gun Rights is fully committed to stopping H.R. 45, but we need the help of grassroots conservatives like you. You and I must join together, draw a line in the sand, and fight this battle to the end. We must make this gun-grab expensive for the enemies of freedom. If we do, they'll flinch ... and lose. By mobilizing hundreds of thousands of grassroots gun owners across the country, the National Association for Gun Rights can put anti-gun politicians on the hot seat. Are you with me? Are you opposed to national gun registration? Are you opposed to a written examination to buy a gun? Are you opposed to a new $25 gun tax? Are you opposed to a total ban on private firearm sales? If you said, "yes" to any of those questions, I need you to click here to fill out NAGR's HR45 petition and join us in this fight.
Stopping un-Constitutional gun control bills like H.R. 45 may be NAGR's top priority, but we can't do it alone.
The fact is H.R. 45 is just the first step. Sarah Brady and her cohorts in Congress now have the support of a willing White House and won't stop until they've reached their ultimate goal: a national ban on the individual ownership of all firearms.

H.R. 45 is the most sweeping gun control proposal ever offered in America, and under this administration, it might just pass -- unless you act today.
