    Dear friend of liberty,

    Senator Jack Reed (RI) introduced S. 2099 in the U.S. Senate on February
    24, 2000. Senators Charles Schumer (NY) and Frank Lautenberg (NJ) are
    cosponsors of the bill.

    S. 2099 would amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to require the
    registration of all handguns, both newly-purchased and currently-owned
    handguns, with the federal government. Current owners would be
    required to register their handguns by submitting an application with
    a photograph and fingerprints and pay a tax within one year after the
    enactment of S. 2099. The information submitted by owners of handguns
    would be kept in a central-government database known as the National
    Firearms Registration and Transfer Record maintained by the
    Secretary of the Treasury.

    Any law-abiding citizen who owns a handgun and does not want to be
    tracked by this government database had better carefully read the
    "Transfer Rule" section of this bill, which states he or she "shall
    register such handgun"..."upon the transfer of such handgun before
    such 1 year anniversary date." In other words, you will be required
    to register handguns you no longer own.


    Gun makers would be assessed a $50.00 tax per gun manufactured.
    This on the manufacturer, as do all such taxes on the production
    of goods, will be passed on to the consumer as an increase in the
    purchase price.

    S. 2099 is currently in the U.S. Senate Committee on Finance. We need
    to make sure that S. 2099 doesn't make it out of committee.

    Even though S. 2099 has only two cosponsors, it is, nonetheless, a
    pending bill. As I wrote in my last update, anything is possible during
    the last weeks of a congressional session. Therefore, we need to tell
    our U.S. senators we are aware of S. 2099 and that we strongly
    oppose it.

    Go to http://www.thelibertycommittee.org and click on S. 2099 in the
    Self Defense section, then click on Take Action Here! to express your
    opinion about S. 2099 to your two U.S. senators.

    Thunder, how did you get the "liberty Committee" link to come up like that? Everytime I put up a link it comes up like this: http://www.emmett.coloradok5.com

    How do I get a link to be a phrase or single word for a entire web address?

    SORRY I did this in the topic!!!
