He has all the right ideas -- pity his bills never go anywhere.

Also a much bigger pity that the congress and president passed this bill after swaring before the people of the US and God that they would uphold and defend the constitution of the United States of America.

And a HUGE pity that the SCOTUS hasn't already done this.

So....if HR 1096 passes and HR 1022 passes, does that mean that we can import "assault rifles" and purchase them here, but cannot maufacture them?

It needs an amendment to strike all of 922(o). Or better yet, all of 922 or Chapter 44.
