I would strongly urge everyone, whether you hunt or not, to check out HR 45 that has been introduced into the House. You can check it out here: http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/z?c111:H.R.45:
This bill has been kept very quiet, and is introduced at a time when the stimulus bill and the economy will divert the attention of the folks. In essence, it will require licensing of almost every firearm, but even worse is that you will have to produce a photo, thumb print and other personal ID in order to get the license.
And it gets much, much worse. Just one example: if you should move, and you do not inform the Attorney General in writing that you moved, and where you moved to, you can go to prison! And you can go to prison if your guns are stored in a fashion that provides easy access in an emergency, such as someone breaking into your home. If it is easy to get to the gun, you can go to prison. There is even a section of the bill that allows the AG to INSPECT every location - INCLUDING YOUR HOME - where guns are stored. That sounds more like Nazi Germany than America.
I really hate to say this, but that is how it began in Nazi Germany in the '30's. First, know where the guns are. Then, if the folks get restless and don't like what the government is doing, simply go out and collect all the guns.
There are many other restrictions on buying, selling and transporting your guns in this bill.
OK, folks - if you do not want to lose your rights, you know what to do, and who to contact, don't you?
