    New Bill - taxed on guns!

    This is what I founf on fact-check. There is no such bill. A chain e-mail containing bogus claims refers to a bill that died more than eight years ago. S. 2099 (not "SB" 2099) was introduced Feb. 24, 2000, by Democratic Sen. Jack Reed of Rhode Island. He called it the "Handgun Safety and Registration Act of 2000," and as the title implies it would have applied only to handguns, not to "all guns you have or own." It's true that the bill would have required owners of handguns to register them with the federal government within one year, under the 1934 National Firearms Act (which is part of the Internal Revenue Code). That law requires a federal permit to own a machine gun, a sawed-off rifle or shotgun, or a silencer. Reed said in a news release that in practical terms, handgun owners would need to fill out a registration form, get fingerprinted by local law enforcement officials and obtain a local "Law Enforcement Certification." These would be sent to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, along with a recent photo (2 inches by 2 inches) and a $5 registration fee. The bill would indeed have required a $50 tax on each handgun, but it would have been a one-time tax, not an annual tax. And it would have been imposed on the manufacturer, not on the owner as erroneously claimed in the e-mail. That cost would no doubt have been passed on to buyers in the form of a higher price for each new handgun, but handgun owners would not have been required to record their guns on their annual federal income tax forms, as wrongly claimed in the e-mail. Another false claim is that the bill "will become public knowledge 30 days after it is voted into law." In fact, it was public knowledge as soon as Reed introduced it and announced that in the Congressional Record. The claim that the "Finance Committee can pass this without the Senate voting on it at all" is nonsense, as any high-school civics student should know. It would have become law if passed both by the full House and Senate and signed into law by the president. That didn't happen. The bill was referred to the Senate Finance Committee, and it eventually attracted two cosponsors. But when the 106th Congress adjourned at the end of 2000, the bill died without getting so much as a subcommittee hearing, let alone a vote. Reed has not reintroduced the bill since then. Sources S. 2099. "Handgun Safety and Registration Act of 2000." U.S. Congress, 24 Feb. 2000. The National Firearms Act. Title 26, U.S. Code. Internal Revenue Code. U.S. Senate. Congressional Record, 24 Feb. 2000.

    My son wants to join the Air Force

    I am a very firm believer in the Military. I come from a long line of military people, starting with my father,his 7 children(including me) and his grandaughter (who has 3 years until she retires. She joined at 17 and has enjoyed "most" of her time. Just like any job sometimes not that great. It matured her at 17 and she has turned into a fine woman and mother. I did worry when she was overseas in one of the danger zones but she was fine. You always worry about them no matter what they do or where they are. God bless him and let him go for it.

    My husband belongs to New derry Sportsman and we go there. The range is not the best but it works for us. We usually have the place to ourselves. He found another place on Derry Ridge,an old Quarry (i think).
