Correspondence from Minnesota Congressman James Oberstar dated August 21, 2009 regarding the Blair Holt's Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act (H.R.45). "This legislation has been introduced in the 111th Congress and has been referred to the House Judiciary Committee. This legislation would prohibit an individual from possessing a firearm unless he or she has been issued a firearm license.
Similar legislation was introduced in the 110th Congress and it was not considered by the House Judiciary Committee. It is unlikely to be considered in the 111th Congress either.
Rest assured that I will continue to oppose efforts to undermine Second Amendment freedoms.
Withe best wishes. Sincerely, James L. Oberstar, M.C."
