what chance does it have of passing? really, i want to know.

I don't know but with 20% of the House of Representative for this bill it is really not a good thing this early on.[:\]

If you read it, just about every semi automatic pistol will be banned. Since the slide assembly on semi's covers the barrel (excl the beretta, Luger and P38 and a very few others) such as in the 1911, the Glock, the ruger, the springfield XD etc... they can be considered a barrel shroud. Combining a detachable magazine and barrel shroud would make them illegal. This won't work...

(36) BARREL SHROUD- The term `barrel shroud' means a shroud that is attached to, or partially or completely encircles, the barrel of a firearm so that the shroud protects the user of the firearm from heat generated by the barrel, but does not include a slide that encloses the barrel, and does not include an extension of the stock along the bottom of the barrel which does not encircle or substantially encircle the barrel. This doesn't actually look much worse then what we have now, not that I'm defending it. That's probably why it has relatively strong support in a climate in which even most Democrats think gun control is a losing issue. With the strong pro-gun committee chairs, I doubt it will ever leave the committee. Troublesome aspects appear to include: `(4) It shall be unlawful for a licensed manufacturer, licensed importer, or licensed dealer who transfers a large capacity ammunition feeding device that was manufactured on or before September 13, 1994, to fail to certify to the Attorney General before the end of the 60-day period that begins with the date of the transfer, in accordance with regulations prescribed by the Attorney General, that the device was manufactured on or before September 13, 1994.'. Sounds like an attempt to start registering pre-ban mags. And: `(5) It shall be unlawful for any person to transfer a semiautomatic assault weapon to which paragraph (1) does not apply, except through-- `(A) a licensed dealer, and for purposes of subsection (t) in the case of such a transfer, the weapon shall be considered to be transferred from the business inventory of the licensed dealer and the dealer shall be considered to be the transferor; or `(B) a State or local law enforcement agency if the transfer is made in accordance with the procedures provided for in subsection (t) of this section and section 923(g). `(6) The Attorney General shall establish and maintain, in a timely manner, a record of the make, model, and date of manufacture of any semiautomatic assault weapon which the Attorney General is made aware has been used in relation to a crime under Federal or State law, and the nature and circumstances of the crime involved, including the outcome of relevant criminal investigations and proceedings. The Attorney General shall annually submit the record to the Congress and make the record available to the general public.'.

My initial reaction is that this bill is DOA. [b]HOWEVER[/b]... Given the recent political history of our friends at the NRA, one might be inclined to predict that by the appropriate time, some of the shit you see in this new bill will become reality. Think about it. It's the way the NRA works. They (the antis) dream up shit Hitler and Stalin would rejoice over, and the NRA meets them halfway. Things better be different this time around or my support for the NRA and the Republicans is fucking history.

Guys, we've been down this path at least three times in the last two weeks! I met with my congresswoman a month ago at the VFW. The first topic was the AWB and why I think it should sunset and any new attempt to renew it by the liberals NEVER make it to the President's desk. She ASSURED me that it was DOA and that the Republican leadership has assured the rank and file in the House and Senate that they need not even BOTHER to bring any of these up. Trust the Dems to try anyway...just to embarrass the President. They damn well know its a done deal...but they are searching for anything that might stick to Dubya. Regardless of the political manueverings and shady dealings, all of the attempts to revive the AWB in this pre-election year are futile and doomed to failure. Fret not...this sucker is going to sunset and NOTHING else is going to make it out of committee...NOTHING. (From a die-hard political junkie and gun-toting Conservative.)

It's not as bad as it looks. Of the 84 cosponsors, 51 of them are from the predictable liberal, anti-gun hotbeds (CA-19, MA-8, NY-11, NJ-6, IL-7). Even if they get 51 more, it's still very unlikely it will get out of committee hearings. Compare it to the Senate version; S. 1043. that only has 8 cosponsers and 5 of them are either from CA, MA, NY and NJ. And that's for the bill that has a better chance of reaching the floor for a vote. And assuming it did make it out of committee, and was passed, it would still have to be voted on and approved by the House. In contrast, S. 659 (The Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act), now has 53 cosponsers. It only needs 6 more votes to block Schumer and Lautenburgs threat of a fillibuster. [:)]

"It should have never gotten 84 cosponsors! It should have never even been written!" The Democrats don't expect this one to pass. They want to use this as something to hammer the Republicans in their ads. "Dangerous assault weapons are back on the streets. Our children have to go to school dodging bullets sprayed from AK47's and Uzi's. We MUST have reasonable gun controls, but the Republicans have blocked us at every attempt." So, later they will comeback with a watered down version that is still as bad, or worse, than the AWB we have now, and say that they are compromising, not hurting hunters and sportsmen.

Remember. Revolutionary movement have numbers, and the guerilla advantage. Also, once their supply lines are cut, their Humvees, Abrams tanks, Apaches, and F16s become worthless scrap metal. Then the armories are overrun and the revolutionaries are well equipped. Then it will be a one way trip on the seasaw. Fuck knows what happens afterwards. Remember what happened with Lenin? Nice military, sure.. But a hell of alot more 'nobodies'. Then its a nice little quest of who the hell is going to lead this damn thing.

I still send letters to the local office of my Congressman Doc Hastings and to the reginal office in Spokane for Senator Cantwell. These are answer prompty. Also I haven't given a thought towards anthrax screening. I also email and phone their offices. I have had one sit down with the Congressman this year so far. ED

My congressman is Robert Simmons (R) CT. He defeated that SOB Sam Gejdensen in 2000. He knows me already so contacting him won't be a problem.

If Democrats want to have any believability in these "reasonable' gun restrictions they should first have the good sense to acknowledge the 2nd Amendment, then make their "reasoned" claim. The strategy of denial and damnation of firearms has not proven to be a winner but it doesn't seem to discourage these unimaginative politicians.

That bill has no chance of surviving. Won't ever get to a floor vote at all. The 84 sponsors of it are the radical democrats in the House. A definite minority. It goes nowhere but to the shitcan. (Tabled, they call it.) CJ
