    There's a decent chance that the economic situation is only going to get worse, and that Our Benevolent Masters are going to have another bailout bill put in front of them, and it's going to pass.

    Now.

    There was a whole bunch of pork added onto the bill before it passed. Stuff like this:

    Most of it wasn't read at all before it passed. IMHO, we lost an opportunity.

    Now, in the next one, how about we add a section (written by me):
    Or some variation. They won't even read it before voting on it. Bush certainly won't read it. They didn't last time. Get someone to slip it in at the last minute before printing, or have a midnight voice vote like last time. We just need a Congresscritter crazy enough to do it.

    And before anyone asks, I'm completely serious. :eek:

    I've never really thought too hard on this issue. But if that happens, do you think it would backfire, and scare the public in to pushing for more gun control?

    It really would be that easy. Who would be wry enough to do it?

    something similar happened a few years ago in IL. A bill that was passed without much thought decriminalized private MG ownership for about 3 weeks in IL. That was how long it took someone to figure out exactly what had been passed and get an emergency session to undo it.

    I think Ron Paul, or any of the Montana or Wyoming representatives would be on board.

    I doubt my reps are ballsy enough.

    I had the same line of thought, but I would strike the NFA as well - it is in the tax code (26 usc 53), so an eagle eye anti is less likely to spot "18 usc 922".

    Let's get some politicians on board.
    Any ideas?

    Problem: some states only consider your Title II's "lawfully possessed" if 26 USC 53-registered. We take that away at the Federal level, we lose the end-run around a lot of the State-level bans...

    Find one of the "lameduck" congresscritters - one who won't have a job come jan anyways - and doesn't have to worry about defending it later.
