    All kinds of crazy anti-gun stuff gets submitted every year... the difference this year is that the House was controlled by the Republicans since 1994. So this year, we get to see how far some of these crazy bills make it now that John Conyers (sponsor of the even worse McCarthy AWB in 2005 and only current member of the House to have voted for the 1968 Gun Control Act) is Chairman of the House Judiciary.

    For shame! I cannot believe that you don't trust the Democrats to protect our 2nd Amendment rights.

    After all, John Kerry even goes hunting.
