Here is the full bill that has passed in the Senate and is on the way to the House. There seems to be so much in here it will take some time to go through it, but here is some of the buzz.

If you do an internet search, here is the big one that will show. Some are saying it allows the IRS to revoke your 2nd Amendment rights.

The first attack on the right to bear arms is found on page 1323.

The Secretary may modify, suspend, or terminate a special permit or approval if the Secretary determines that—(1) the person who was granted the special permit or approval has violated the special permit or approval or the regulations issued under this chapter in a manner that demonstrates that the person is not fit to conduct the activity authorized by the special permit or approval; or (2) the special permit or approval is unsafe.

The second attack on gun ownership is more subtle.

There is a stream of logic that you have to follow.

First, if this bill passes, the IRS will have the authority to take away the passports of those whom they say owe more than $50,000 in taxes. (The tax debt doesn’t have to be proven, mind you, the IRS simply has to accuse you of owing the money.) You can find this section on page 1447 of the Bill.

- When your passport is revoked by the government, you are suddenly on the “no-fly list”.

- Membership in the no-fly club puts you on yet another list, as a potential domestic terrorist.

- Domestic terrorists are not allowed to have guns.

Listen to Raul Emanuel gloat of it. He eloquently states “If you are known as maybe a possible terrorist you cannot buy a handgun in America.” (1:13 of the video)

Another thing you may find is this bill would require all car manufactures to have a black box installed in them by 2015.

The bill reads, “Not later than 180 days after the date of enactment of this Act, the Secretary shall revise part 563 of title 49, Code of Federal Regulations, to require, beginning with model year 2015, that new passenger motor vehicles sold in the United States be equipped with an event data recorder that meets the requirements under that part.”
