    Congressman Rush introduces gun legislation named after Blair Holt, the Julian High School hero



    Chicago, IL. ---- U.S. Rep. Rush was joined by Ronald Holt, the father of Blair Holt, Rufus Williams, president of the Chicago Board of Education, law enforcement officials and community activists to introduce Blair Holt’s Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2007-HR 2666 (Blair’s Bill) aimed at curbing senseless violence by implementing a uniform system for purchasers of certain firearms.
    The group gathered at the location where Holt’s son Blair, was elevated from being an honor student attending Julian High School to a hero when he used his body to shield a ultimately save a female friend.

    “The proliferation of guns in our community impacts us all. My son lost his life back in 1999 due to senseless gun violence and my nephew sits in jail today, convicted of fatally shooting someone. Like all of you, I am sick and tired of scenes like this being replayed over and over again in our neighborhoods," said Rep. Rush, chairman of the Energy and Commerce subcommittee on Commerce, Trade and Consumer Protection.
    "Since the beginning of this school year alone, over 31 children have lost their life by violence, and the great majority were killed with guns. In response to these tragedies, I am introducing a bill in Congress that would regulate gun trafficking and possession in this country. HR 2666, Blair’s Bill, will implement a nationwide program of licensing all individuals who possess firearms and require all guns to be registered in a national gun registry," he added.
    According to police, Michael Pace boarded an eastbound 103rd Street CTA bus at 103rd and Halsted about 3:20 p.m. on May 10 and started shooting, striking two males and three females, all of whom were students at Julian. Kevin Jones is accused of giving Pace the gun, knowing he wanted to use it to try to kill someone he had argued with. Julian High School student Blair Holt used his body to shield and ultimately save a female friend.
    The purpose of the Bill is:
    (1) to protect the public against the unreasonable risk of injury and death associated with the unrecorded sale or transfer of qualifying firearms to criminals and youth;
    (2) to ensure that owners of qualifying firearms are knowledgeable in the safe use, handling, and storage of those firearms;
    (3) to restrict the availability of qualifying firearms to criminals, youth, and other persons prohibited by Federal law from receiving firearms; and
    (4) to facilitate the tracing of qualifying firearms used in crime by Federal and State law enforcement agencies.

    Hopfully this shit never passes but get ready to start emailing your rep's.

    Fuck Illinois I wish someone would nuke it.

    This probably won't work. Not to mention, they will have to grandfather clause this one. Buy your toys now everybody.

    There are some laws that are introduced just to say they were introduced that have absolutely no chance of success. This is one of those laws.

    0 cosponsors but just introduced, barring some new shooting spree I dont see it gaining much support to go anywhere.
