If passed as written, I think the problem won't be the Munitions List under 22 USC 2778, because the elite dosen't want to clutter that up anymore. The problem will be the Regulations crap. Under Chevron, the Supremes pretty much let any regulation have the force of law if there is any vague reason for the view the agency holds. This is not good at all if it passes. The very next Dem Secretary will put everything on the list and let the door to door searches begin.

How could this include AR magazines? Were ALL 20 and 30 round mags once owned by the US gov? How can it be proven that a certain magazine in question was ever US gov. property? This is very interesting. Hopefully this will never make through the House and onto GW' desk. If it does get that far then do you think he would sign it? I would hope that the NRA would also be there to give us info about what is trying to be done under our noses. This is clever timing to introduce this legislation. I am in no way trying to make light of this but every year there is 1 yahoo in Congress that puts forth some wacked out piece of legislation just to tell his district that he has been trying so hard for them in Washington.

The difference in this bill before, and now - is that right now you could bury an ammendment in a bill called 'Antiterrorism feel good legislation #432' authorizing the US government to riddle blue Nissan Sentras with bullet holes on sight and it would pass.

Lte's see they are banning .50 Calibers, Military Weapons (Assault Rifles), Ammunition For Said Weapons, Reloading Supplies, and Bullet Proof Vests. If this passes, I will shoot anybody who tries to confiscate my guns. But, Then Again What constitutes "Significant." Is 1,000 Rounds of .223 or .308 considered an Arsenal. They'll have my Arsenal of Ammo. In their bodies cold dead corpses of course.

They arent gonna ban anything. All the AT legislation is now in big trouble
Anti-terrorism legislation bogs down Goal is to narrow differences by Senate hearing on Tuesday By Walter Pincus THE WASHINGTON POST Sept. 21 — The Justice Department’s anti-terrorism legislation, which once seemed likely to sweep through Congress on the storm of anger arising out of the World Trade Center and Pentagon attacks, has been slowed as legislators and public interest groups begin to review its provisions. The proposed changes include allowing investigators with simple search warrants to seize devices with voice mail messages and listen to them. Currently, they must obtain a wiretap court order before playing such a tape. WITH DOZENS of proposed changes in criminal and immigration law, the package put together by Attorney General John D. Ashcroft and his staff has quickly drawn opposition from some members of Congress, as well as a diverse collection of interest groups. Yesterday, more than 125 of those organizations joined in a statement warning that legislation and regulations adopted in the heat of anger could “erode the liberties and freedoms that are at the core of the American way of life.” The coalition, whose members range from the conservative Eagle Forum and the Gun Owners of America to the liberal National Lawyers Guild and the Gay and Lesbian Task Force, called for calm and deliberate action that honors constitutional rights — especially free speech — and avoids stigmatizing any racial, religious or ethnic group. Organizations representing Muslim, Hispanic, Chinese, Japanese and Arab Americans joined the alliance, along with such traditional civil rights groups as the NAACP and the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights. The target of their concern is still considered a work in progress as Justice Department lawyers and staff members from the House and Senate judiciary committees try to identify areas of agreement and work out points of disagreement. Those differences “are expected to be narrowed” by the time the Senate panel holds a hearing on the measure on Tuesday, a committee spokesman said yesterday. House Majority Leader Richard K. Armey (R-Tex.) told reporters that lawmakers may be able to move quickly on sections of the legislation dealing with changes needed specifically for the current investigation. Among the most controversial sections are those that would widen the government’s ability to detain or deport foreigners. The government already has that power over foreigners who support a terrorist organization. The legislation would expand that to foreigners who support a sub-group not involved in terrorism but which is associated with a terrorist organization. The provision would apply “to all aliens regardless of when they entered the United States or when they committed the terrorist activity,” according to a Justice Department analysis of the legislation. Another provision would allow the attorney general to detain a foreigner by certifying that he or she poses a threat to national security — even a person who has been granted political asylum in this country and, thus, cannot be deported.

Already under sharp criticism is a section that would permit a foreigner to be detained for an unlimited amount of time during a national emergency, such as the situation in the past week when scores of foreigners have been taken into custody. The proposed changes also would permit investigators with simple search warrants to seize devices with voice mail messages and listen to them. Currently, investigators must obtain a wiretap court order before playing such a tape. This provision also would apply to unopened e-mail on computers seized pursuant to a search warrant and even to e-mail and unopened voice mail held by an individual’s communications service provider. Many provisions have no opposition. For example, one gives the secretary of state authority to pay a reward of $10 million or more in a case where “doing so would be important to the national security interests of the United States,” according to the Justice Department analysis. One addition to the reward provision, the analysis says, would apply to “the identification or location of an individual who holds a key leadership position in a terrorist organization” — such as Osama bin Laden. Several provisions are designed to permit law enforcement officials and intelligence operators to share information obtained by their separate investigations. For example, wiretaps authorized under criminal investigations could be disclosed to the intelligence community. Now, such distribution for reasons other than use in a criminal probe is prohibited. In addition, wiretaps authorized under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act(FISA), which are obtained from a special court and without probable-cause requirements needed for criminal cases, also would be shared. Some critics of this proposal suggest criminal investigators unable to get a court order for a wiretap would use the intelligence rationale. FISA wiretaps also would be allowed to continue for up to a year, rather than the current 90 days. Another change sought by the Justice Department would permit the use in U.S. courts of a foreign government’s intercept of a U.S. citizen’s telephone conversations abroad, “even if the collection violated” the Fourth Amendment rights guaranteed in this country. The one limitation is that American law enforcement officials could not have been involved in arranging or suggesting the overseas wiretap. Investigators also would be granted access to education records now shielded by privacy protections of federal education laws. That change would apply to general criminal prosecutions, as well as national security cases. The legislation also addresses penalty issues. Anyone convicted of involvement in planning a terrorist act would be subject to the maximum penalty allowed for commission of the terrorism. This change would bring the terrorism conspiracy penalty provisions in line with those applicable in drug crimes. Another provision would subject those convicted of terrorist crimes to post-imprisonment supervision. That means law enforcement officials could track them and maintain oversight over them after they have served any prison term, potentially for their lifetimes. A similar provision is part of the drug laws. Staff writers Thomas B. Edsall and Jonathan Krim contributed to this report. © 2001 The Washington Post Company

My question is if the government (local, state, national) sells the item it is no longer govt. property so what ever happened to illegal search and seizure without due proccess and compensation? Another thought I have am I now a terrorist because I think the alot of stuff the feds do is unconstitotional? Don't get me wrong great speech just left me with some questions.
