    Current status: No cosponsors. Nothing on House Judiciary Committee schedule. Needs scheduled vote and 20 votes to leave Committee.

    14 House Judiciary Committee members who sponsored this same legislation in 2005. 3 more Committee members who have advocated for AWBs in the past (Davis, Wasserman-Schulz, Lungren).

    In 2005, this same bill went a month before acquiring any co-sponsors. The current bill was introduced February 13, 2007.

    No change in status as of March 1, 2007.

    12 Cosponsors signed on to Rep. McCarthy's bill on March 7:

    Rep Ackerman, Gary L. [NY-5] - 3/7/2007
    Rep Crowley, Joseph [NY-7] - 3/7/2007
    Rep Fattah, Chaka [PA-2] - 3/7/2007
    Rep Filner, Bob [CA-51] - 3/7/2007
    Rep Frank, Barney [MA-4] - 3/7/2007
    Rep Jackson-Lee, Sheila [TX-18] - 3/7/2007
    Rep Maloney, Carolyn B. [NY-14] - 3/7/2007
    Rep Meehan, Martin T. [MA-5] - 3/7/2007
    Rep Moran, James P. [VA-8] - 3/7/2007
    Rep Schakowsky, Janice D. [IL-9] - 3/7/2007
    Rep Schiff, Adam B. [CA-29] - 3/7/2007
    Rep Van Hollen, Chris [MD-8] - 3/7/2007

    If these are your reps, you probably already know they are worthless but call them and give them an earful (if you belong to their district, otherwise you are wasting your breath).

    Other than this, the bill is still going nowhere. It needs assignment to a Subcommittee before it can move anywhere and it has not been assigned one yet. This suggests that the Chairmain (John Conyers) may be keeping a lid on this bill for now...

    Currently the House Judiciary Schedule shows no plans to even discuss HR 1022, though this schedule is usually only updated a few days in advance so that can change rapidly.

    Just click on the name and it will take you to a page with contact information for that representative. I suggest flooding their offices with faxes in addition to just making phone calls. If you don't want to pay for a long distance call or don't have a fax machine, you can use FAXZERO. Here is a link that will take you to a page of a sample letters that you can alter and use.

    Sponsor
    Carolyn McCarthy (D-NY 4th)

    Cosponsors
    Gary L. Ackerman (D-NY 5th)
    Joseph Crowley (D-NY 7th)
    Chaka Fattah (D-PA 2nd)
    Bob Filner (D-CA 51st)
    Barney Frank (D-MA 4th)
    Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX 18th) - House Judiciary Committee member
    Carolyn Maloney (D-NY 14th)
    Marty Meehan (D-MA 5th) - House Judiciary Committee member
    James P. Moran (D-VA 8th)
    Janice D. Schakowsky (D-IL 9th)
    Adam Schiff (D-CA 29th) - House Judiciary Committee member

    Six more co-sponsors signed on as of March 9, 2007 (click on link for contact info):

    Rep Capps, Lois [CA-23] - Democrat
    Rep Clay, Wm. Lacy [MO-1] - Democrat

    Rep Grijalva, Raul M. [AZ-7] - Democrat
    Rep Miller, Brad [NC-13] - Democrat

    This brings the total number of co-sponsors to 18. Jackson-Lee and Wexler are also on the House Judiciary Committee that will hear this bill if it moves forward. So far, there is still nothing on the schedule; but they also haven't even started to post next week's schedule yet.

    H.R. 1022 was referred to the House Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security on March 19, 2007; but Thomas was just updated to show the referral. This is the first of many steps it must take to become a bill. However, almost all bills make it to this step and many bills never make it past this step.

    Usually a bill is referred to the proper subcommittee almost immediately after introduction and in the past, that is what has happened with this bill. For whatever reason, they sat on it and did not refer it to the subcommittee this session until March 19th (almost a month of limbo).

    All in all, things are looking good for this bill to die a quiet death in committee.

    Four more representatives (one a non-voting representative from D.C.) has signed on as co-sponsors as of May 8, 2007. Two of these new co-sponsors are on the House Judiciary Committee.

    Rep Norton, Eleanor Holmes [DC] - 5/8/2007 - NON-VOTING - Democrat
    Rep Watt, Melvin L. [NC-12] - 5/8/2007 - Democrat - House Judiciary Committee member

    This brings the total number of co-sponsors to 46 voting (47 total) with 11 members of the House Judiciary Committee signed on.

    Three more, one of whom is running for President.

    Rep McCollum, Betty [MN-4] - 9/25/2007
    Rep Hastings, Alcee L. [FL-23] - 10/22/2007
    Rep Kucinich, Dennis J. [OH-10] - 10/25/2007

    New grand total is 59.

    (And for those playing along at home, HR 2666, which would require handgun licensing and registration, has crept up to 15 cosponsors.)

    And another Presidential candidate jumps into the fray!

    Joseph Biden has just introduced S. 2237 in the Senate. The bill would, among other things, reauthorize the Clinton AWB and close the "gun show loophole."

    There's no text of the legislation yet, but Biden issued a press release about it.
