PopVox - Gun laws

Take a look at how many bills are out there attempting to take our rights. "common sense" legislation and feinsteins are only the first 2.

https://www.popvox.com/bills#issue=175

Great place to easily oppose/support legislation. It is very quick to register and it might make a difference. Also helps you track whats new.

http://www.popvox.com/blog/2013/issu...irearms-113th/ This page has more, incase you missed any.

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!)

Seems as is if we're winning on the two that I checked out. Over 90% on both.

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!

Since this bill included both an AWB and a high cap magazine ban, we need to hit this HARD so we can start shifting the numbers!

I think a weekly list would be a good idea, but a sticky will fill up week after week and get cluttered.

Refreshed the list so it is current as of 2/2/13 http://www.popvox.com/blog/2013/issu...irearms-113th/

These are the bills introduced in the 113th Congress. (Note: Since some of these bills have just been introduced, bill text isn't available yet. It generally takes a few days for the GPO to make the bill text available -- and will be on POPVOX soon.) The new ones are separated from those that have been known for a week. Please do not support or oppose bills just based on their titles. Look a the summary and at the organizations supporting or opposing them.

HR 410The Restore the Constitution Act: To provide that any executive action infringing on the Second Amendment has no force or effect, and to prohibit the use of funds for certain purposes.
HR 404The Straw Purchaser Penalty Enhancement Act: To enhance criminal penalties for straw purchasers of firearms.
HRes 40House Resolution expressing that active duty military personnel who are stationed or residing in the District of Columbia should be permitted to exercise fully their rights under the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.

HR 238The Fire Sale Loophole Closing Act: To amend chapter 44 of title 18, United States Code, to restrict the ability of a person whose Federal license to import, manufacture, or deal in firearms has been revoked, whose application to renew such a license has been denied, or who has received a license revocation or renewal denial notice, to transfer business inventory firearms.
HR 236The Crackdown on Deadbeat Gun Dealers Act: To ensure greater accountability by licensed firearms dealers.
HR 227The Buyback our Safety Act: To establish a gun buyback grant program.
HR 133The Citizens Protection Act: To repeal the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990 and amendments to that Act.
HR 141Closing the ‘gun show loophole.’ To require criminal background checks on all firearms transactions occurring at gun shows.
HR 137The Fix Gun Checks Act: To ensure that all individuals who should be prohibited from buying a firearm are listed in the national instant criminal background check system and require a background check for every firearm sale.

HR 65Raising the age of legal handgun ownership to 21. To prevent children's access to firearms.
HR 93The Fire Sale Loophole Closing Act: To amend chapter 44 of title 18, United States Code, to restrict the ability of a person whose Federal license to import, manufacture, or deal in firearms has been revoked, whose application to renew such a license has been denied, or who has received a license revocation or renewal denial notice, to transfer business inventory firearms.
HR 117The Handgun Licensing and Registration Act: To provide for the mandatory licensing and registration of handguns.
Please keep in mind that highlighting a bill doesn't imply a POPVOX endorsement in any way. Rather, we're simply trying to offer one more way to stay informed of an overwhelmingly complex legislative system.
