    I just saw this on the CalCCW forum a few minutes ago.

    Looks like it's sponsored by Republicans.

    It's ready for Obama's signature on inauguration day.

    There are many popular trap guns on this list.

    I am not in favor of this bill, but you need to read the material first. In page of of the bill, it says that firearms in Appendix A are not included. The appendix lists those "popular trap guns", thus, they are not affected.

    Again, I do not support this bill -- just saying, you might want to read it first before you make a statement like that.

    The HR6257 bill is in committee and has not been voted on yet.

    <i>Latest Major Action: 7/28/2008 Referred to House subcommittee. Status: Referred to the Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security.</i>

    The many popular trap guns on the list (appendix A) are firearms that are exempt from HR6257.

    <i>(3) Paragraph (1) shall not apply to--

    (A) any of the firearms, or replicas or duplicates of the firearms, specified in appendix A to this section</i>

    I am just reading the facts of the bill and in no way supporting it or the sponsors. Write/call/email your representative and voice your opposition to HR6257 before it comes up for vote.

    Oops! I guess I read that too fast re. the list. Nevertheless, the bill is ready to go and it WAS authored by 4 Republicans.

    bigunn,

    I think Chris Shays is the only Rep in the House w/that 'sir name'. He lost his re-election bid last night. I could be wrong but didn't Ann Coulter oppose him in a Republican primary a few years ago?

    bigdogtx,

    Those sponsors are from IL, NJ, CT & DE. Not exactly bastions of pro-gun sentiment.
