Thanks. I received that from a very qualified source in DC and put it in here without checking. I've done that now and can't find anything to support this bit of internet legend. I apologise. And won't add to the rumor and BS again.
Subject: GUN Control via IRS...Immediate action
> Senate Bill SB-2099 will require us to put on our 2009 1040 federal tax form
> all guns that you have or own. It may require fingerprints and a tax of $50 per gun.
> This bill was introduced on Feb. 24. This bill will become public knowledge 30 days
> after it is voted into law. This is an amendment to the Internal Revenue Act of 1986.
> This means that the Finance Committee can pass this without the Senate voting on it at all.
> The full text of the proposed amendment is on the U.S. Senate homepage, http://www.senate.gov/
> You can find the bill by doing a search by the bill number, SB-2099.
> You know who to call; I strongly suggest you do.
So, what is the purpose of the site? What is not happening that threatens the integrity of the site? From another perspective, Why not give GB a little information as one would do for a judge in a brief? Introduce the list with a three paragraph, "one-pager" in which paragraph 1 introduces the purpose of the message (that is, redress some of the issues that detract from the purpose of the site and offset some of the systemic issues which prevent the mission from being achieved). It need not be more than two or three sentences. P-2 would summarize the general congruency of the attached suggestions/grievances. One or two sentences at most, but should include a reference to the attached consensus achieved during a poll of 912 members on whatever dates you accomplished this task. Paragraph 3 is a close where you restate the purpose of the message and indicate just what you would like BG to do about it and how you would expect a follow-up. Not to tell you what to do. It's the lawyer in me.
