Back door Gun Registration...

Heads up folks!!!
BACK DOOR GUN REGISTRATION?

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 home page, 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.

Wasn't this an internet hoax?

Edit: Yes, I guess it is.
