    That's great! Fight back in there. Right on, Ron Paul.

    But I do have a question. What is the child safety act, and what changes do they want to make?

    OK, THR folks, it's time for those famous "Blue Dog" Democrats to put up or shut up...

    I'm going to e-mail my rep, but those of you living in BD Dem territory -- let your rep know you want him/her to co-sponsor this bill. It's easy to stay away from a radioactive bill (HR 1022, etc.). Now, co-sponsoring a pro-2A bill, that's where the rubber meets the road...

    I think I'm just going to hope that my junior Senator is too busy campaigning for President to notice and that my senior Senator is too busy raising money for her presidential campaign to notice this one.

    Sincerely,

    child safety lock

    they want to REPEAL that entire section! :D

    the only thing more i'd like added in this bill is that no bans be made on any type of firearm for any reason (hey if you can afford a mini gun, go for it type of clause)

    Well I think I've done quite a bit to support this bill. I've started a MySpace bulletin that will hopefully get spread around like all the chain letter crap that does. I've posted it in like 7 of the Firearms related groups on MySpace and I've contacted my Rep.

    Would this get rid of the section where you need 10 US parts on a imported "non sporting" gun?

    Be careful about this one...

    The FOPA back in '85/'86 resulted in a ban on new construction of machineguns - it got shoehorned in as an amendment, but the overall legislation was wanted, and so few people own machineguns (hmm....), and all most people knew about them was from watching the A-Team and Chuck Norris movies, so it got passed.

    Like Nazi Pelosi and her gang of DemocRATS will ever let this bill get out of committee.

    L&P has too many people in it who are screaming for the election of anyone but a Republican. Maybe if something like this is in "general" for a little while, a few folks may notice it.

    Wow. I don't think I've ever seen anything this proactive and straight to the point. This is awesome!

    however, I agree with an above post, that this probably doesn't stant a snowball's chance.

    But that will not stop me and shouldn't stop you from writing your representatives. Lets see some letters people!
