If your going to get a law passed, why in fuzzy cat's nuts would you have it sunset in 10 years anyway? hinking.gifhyAs my DI us to say “YOU MUST BE STINKIN HIGH” Sgt. Howell USMC hin.

Because they didn't want to violate our 2nd amendment right forever unless it was going to do some good. I think the real deal is that everyone knew it was just a political soap box stand view and those against it would have commited political suicide voting no so they insisted on the sunset as a way to babyface. Please see www.awbsunset.com also this thread might be better recieved in the general forum. Glockdog Airborne!!

Glockdog, Is right. Same with the Sun Set on Patriot Act. Many law makers feel it’s alright to violate the constitution/Bill of Rights during a time of war or national emergency so long as it’s not permanent.

It was a compromise to get the law passed. To try it for 10 years, then see if it worked.

Because the sunset clause was what bought that last senator to make it a tie. (Which allowed Al Gore to cast the tiebreaker) If they could have gotten the votes to make it permenent, they would have.
