    See (t)(2)(A)(i) concerning carry permits as NICS alternatives. Permits that qualify as NICS alternatives under current law must allow a person to possess or acquire a firearm (permits in 22 states currently qualify); (t)(2)(A)(i) adds permits that are limited to carrying a firearm.

    Currently, they still don't have the votes. They are trying to flip Lisa Murkowski and Mark Begich of Alaska by offering to amend Schumer-Toomey-Manchin again. If you live in AK, please, please give your Senators a call.

    I do not. I know that 720xx and 72032 are AR zip codes for Sen. Pryor.

    "Notwithstanding" 101

    Just a quick tip: when reading contracts and legislation, it's important to realize that "notwithstanding" is synonymous with "despite". Sub in the word "despite" to get a clearer picture of what's being complied with, or not, as is most often the case.
    This may be a no-brainer for most, but it was an 'ah-ha' moment for me in the course of contract reviews. Just thought I'd share. ;)

    I also heard Alan Gottlieb on Tom Gresham's program and while from what I heard it does not sound bad BUT a big red flag for me is that Chuckie Schumer does not oppose it. I don't trust the antis (when they offer a compromise WATCH OUT!) and what kind of crap would end up in the bill thru amendments if it got traction. The only way I could support this bill is if it were to pre-empt all of the state gun and magazine restrictions. The problem with that is "Fearless Leader" would never sign such a bill or use his power of line item veto to mess it up

    Murkowski is now being reported as a "No" and Dean Heller is officially opposed.

    The HuffPo whip count shows 52 for, 40 against, and 8 undecided. So to pass Toomey-Manchin supporters need Lautenberg to show up and vote tomorrow and get all 8 undecideds.

    AJC Blog is saying they are 5-8 votes short.

    Currently the vote is scheduled for 4pm eastern tomorrow. Keep up the pressure!

    Lautenberg is rumored to be coming in for the vote.

    If we can stop this bill here it will send a clear message!

    A zip code to feed Bloomberg's toll free number.is 37830 for Corker. I just used it and was sent to voicemail.

    Corker is an official No now, as are Flake, Heitkamp and Ayotte.
