[url]http://www.nealknox.com/alerts/msg00051.html[/url] Oct. 3 Neal Knox Update -- A compromise agreement between Congress and the Bush Administration on an anti-terrorism bill seems near, with nothing related to firearms in it. Last week the White House made it clear that it would reject any type of national identification card, with or without electronic "smarts" -- which House Minority Leader Richard Gephardt thinks is a good idea, and which Sen. Dianne Feinstein finds "interesting." While government powers would be increased under the bill, particularly in the area of electronic surveillance, the probable final version stops well short of what law enforcement agencies wanted. In the 9/11 horrors, the FBI didn't lack information as much as they failed to act on information they had. They had been informed of the plan of convicted 1993 World Trade Center bomber Ramzi Yousef to crash commercial airliners into prime targets, were told some 200 terrorists had infiltrated the U.S., and already had in FBI custody an illegal immigrant who wanted to learn how to turn and dive an airliner but not land it. . . . . .

I was betting that it would have included .50 Cal Legislation.
