Make sure after you oppose/support you click finish twice. It will bring you to suggested bills to view, and there are a lot of them trying to sneak through that are misrepresented by their title.

Yeah, I've "voted" on every single gun bill on the site. And check it every two days or so.

I just heard about PopVox today....this site is AWESOME!!!!!!

Informed, easy activism just does not get any easier! EVERYONE who cares about their gun rights needs to know about this site.

...Especially since there ain't a thing keeping the "opposition" from using it!

Wow - some anti site must have gotten ahold of that one!

I voted opposition - but its 10:1 for background checks on all sales, banning AR's and 'high' cap mags.

(my bad - this should be in the other popvox thread!)

Just learned about this site. Very handy. Wade through all the categories as there are anti gun bills in more than just the firearms category.

I wonder if it's because people see the words "common sense" and actually believe it. Sheeple not people that is.

JF - I think it's 'rigged' to a degree. The bill (not sure it's really a bill) - is written by a coalition of mayors - my guess is the mayors have all their buddies around sending in responses. I'm hoping by awareness we can set it right.

Be careful...some of the newer bills don't have the bill text attached yet. Don't vote until you can actually read what is being proposed. As mentioned, some of the titles are deliberately misleading, I believe.

Thanks, hso! I was just wondering if we had a current, up to date list of all pending firearms releated legislation so I could send another round of letters and emails to my congresscritters. :)

BTW, does anyone know how H.R. 21: The NRA Members' Gun Safety Act got its name. Reading the summary of the proposed law (UBC and a nationwide return to "May Issue"), I can't believe the NRA had anything to do with it!

HR 117The Handgun Licensing and Registration Act: To provide for the mandatory licensing and registration of handguns.

According to govtrack, all of the senate bills I've looked at (can't remember the list) have been upgraded to a 13% chance of making it through committee.

That's an above average chance (the average being 12%).

Not entirely surprising, but still not encouraging. :(

March 11, 2013: The Senate Judiciary Committee approved the bipartisan Leahy-Collins Stop Illegal Trafficking in Firearms Act (S 54), last week. The bill will now go to the Senate floor for a vote. It's the first legislative vote on a measure related to guns in either the Senate or the House since the Newtown school shooting.

This week, the Senate Judiciary Committee will hold a markup on gun control legislation. They are considering the following bills: The Assault Weapons Ban (S 150); The Protecting Responsible Gun Sellers Act (S 374) and The School Safety Enhancements Act (S 146).
