Yup..in reality the so-called "gun show loophole" is really a "Private Transaction Foothold." They're looking to start a whole brand new process.

Where in the process is this monstrosity? Who do I call first? Is it in committee? Oh, heck, i'll just go look... During my search I found this ... at the bottom is another one we need to watch, S.767 [url]http://www.google.com/search?q=cache:cUWCDtqTbwE:www.consumerfed.org/senateletter.pdf+senate+bill+890+mccain&hl=en[/url] Ok, I've looked, and according to the Senate web site, S890 was referred to the Judicial committe on 5/15/2001 after having been read twice. No further action appears to be taken on it - I'll call my senator-critter's office Monday to find out if they know anything more about it. And S767 was referred to the Judiciary committee on 4/24/01 of this year after 2 readings. I'll also inquire about this one. Hopefully they both are DOA.

Wow. Someone read it [b]two[/b] times. Me, I was just going to get the Cliff's Notes and watch the movie. Friggin nerds always screw up the curve.
