The Assault Weapons Ban Reauthorization Act of 2008 was introduced to the US House on 6/12/08.

Goto: http://thomas.loc.gov/home/c110bills.html , then click under house bills, 6201 - 6271. Then look for Line # 6250, you should find the link there.

It’s our (your) job to hammer them with so much paper/calls/reminders of the democrats defeat, to why the need to just put the pen down and walk away.

Our guys? That's debatable, but I do agree about papering them.

Anyway, there's a Democrat that's running against Mark Kirk, and he's likely going to be winning the elections against him. He is not long for this world in politics.

Introduced by Republicans that probably got elected by the backlash from the now sunset AWB, and should (but obviously don’t) know better.

Even if you believe your congress critter will vote against this, light up their phone lines to tell them how you feel.

You can look up their D.C. offices here:

I always get confused when people call the repubs ''our guys''. Politicans regardless of party must be taken individually. I know plenty of repubs that wouldn't gladly bring back the AWB if they could. There are more repubs in our camp than dems but they are by no means all on board.

I'm not a Republican.

I'm a Conservative.

More and more, the gulf between the two seems to get wider every day.

It seems to me like they will keep reintroducing this thing in various forms and wordings until it eventually slips through.

Time to call my Rep and Senators. Again.

"our guys" = politicians who are pro RKBA. obviously the ones who introduced this are not pro RKBA, thus not "our guys".

In addition to contacting your representatives, remember who introduced and co-sponsored this come election time.

Ok, and ferguson is MY rep in NJ. Thing is he's not running for re-election (at least his name was not on the primary ballot for district 7 primary).
So 2 of 4 are lame ducks it seems. Any info on the other two?

I completely agree with you on this.


I do worry about these bills though... It seems like they just keep coming, one after another. And, I think they'll basically keep trying until one slips on through.

It's like a little kid talking to their parents:

"Can I have a cookie?"

"No, you can't"

"How about now?"

"No"

"Can I have a cookie now?"

"No"

"I want a cookie!"

(Of course, the responsible parent doesn't fold under the pressure. We'll have to see if congress is responsible).

All five (co-)sponsors are Republicans.

I'm wondering why I shouldn't consider this my "enough" moment with that party. Yeah, I know it's just five out of hundreds, but ... the straw that broke the camel's back was, nonetheless, just a straw.

"Republican" Mark Kirk is being challenged by Allan Stevo as an Independent:

http://www.paulcongress.com/Candidates.html

Let’s reinstate the U.S. Constitution as the sacred covenant between the people and the government that it was meant to be. This is the reason why the people’s representatives take an oath to uphold it. I would take this oath and treat it as my highest duty, whether or not that is the easiest and quickest way.

Assault Weapons Ban Reauthorization Act of 2008 (Introduced in House)
http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/z?c110:H.R.6257.IH:

Interesting how the bill has a new and improved name:

H.R.6257
Title: To reinstate the Public Safety and Recreational Firearms Use Protection Act.

Pretty sick when the name of a bill refers to protecting some things because the very same bill prohibits others - the "we had to destroy the villiage to save it" mentality. Deep-six the bill and - behold - that which was to be "protected" suddenly no longer needs protecting.

Duplicate x2. The only thread that stayed open didn't mention politics strangely enough.
