    H.R.322

    This bill appears to address the controversey with EPA banning lead in hunting, fishing and recreational shooting.

    It is the type of thing you can to get the previous bill and look at the change with the new wording.

    Here in Colorado

    A lawmaker wants to introduce a bill restoring the gun rights to certain felons who have served their time. Her argument is a person who committed tax fraud is not of the same criminal class as a murderer.


    Several sheriffs have come out to say they will protect the Second Amendment rights of the residents of Colorado. A couple quite firm about it, but sheriff of Arapahoe County not quite as convinicing.

    Feinstein's bill is not going to be introduced in the House until next week by Colorado's own Rep. Ed Perlmutter of Jefferson county as a companion measure. CO Senators Udall and Benenett have NOT committed to backing Feinstein's bill and are going to get some heat for the Libs and the Denver Post has put a target on their backs.

    All three Colorado lawmakers are Dems.

    Our background check system is still back logged with some 8000 or so checks and State Rep Claire Levy, D-Boulder is pushing to put the cost of the check on gun buyers. Gun owners say, no, if the State and the Fed both require the check, the government (taxpayers) should pay for it.

    Seems CO tried to get by on checks using the FBI's NICBCS but it missed a restraining order here in Colorado that allowed one Simon Gonzales to buy a gun, kill his daighters and die in a shootout with police.


    Keep an eye on what your State is doing, and let us know.

    Feinstein's bill still has not shown up on Thomas report yet, but the linl above, will take you to the bill as written on her web site.

    It will be important to look at the bill to be voted on, because it will contain all changes.


    I have not read through this completely, but two things jumped out at me.

    Any pistol that is a semi auto version of a full automatic pistol will be under the ban. Beretta has a full autopistol (or had at one time).

    The ban on ANY device that accelerates the rate of fire of a semi auto, such as the Hellfire, or slide stock.

    Starting on page 23 of Feinstein's bill contains the exemptions and therein lies a blatant inconsistency.

    Perhaps you can spot it?

    Then my next question is why the need to list exempted rifles and shotguns. Notice no pistols are exempted.

    I am wondering if the ban is enacted, if manufactuers would be prohibited from selling any long guns created after the ban and NOT contained in the list of exemptions?

    Rick - Check out www.popvox.com It lets you look at each bill, send an email to your senator/congressman on that specific bill, and it tracks the number of people who have submitted emails on it. It will also take you to the .gov site to read the text of the bill. I've found it to be very helpful.

    Rick:

    I'll agree with you that listing specific exempt firearms in the actual text of a bill like that doesn't really serve any purpose at all, unless they would have been included in the AW definition in the first place. Probably more of a PR stunt than anything else.

    I think your last sentence isn't really a concern. Nothing is illegal unless the statute says it is. Not being on an exempt list means nothing by itself.

    A debate in Colorado State legislature today lasted four hours over a bill to allow teachers to be armed. The bill failed, butt there were parents who wanted it passed.

    In another local story today, a CCW class normally provided for 200 people was over 300 and a lot of teachers were in the class.

    Okay,now bills are showing up that have been introduced in the Senate,some which have already been introduced in the House.

    Senate bill S.2.IS. Sandy Hook Violence Reduction Act

    This bill has a lot ot Obama's exective actions, which are vague and one is to keep guns out of the hands of criminal, but I don't believe anyone in the Senate will give theirs up.

    Bill to allow gun violence victims the right to sue gun manufactuers, dealers, distributers, trade associations.

    .

    .

    Here is a perfect example of those who say let them ban AR's because you don't have one is a wrong headed attitude.

    Let's say a high grade doubles gun is stolen, cut down and used in a murder.

    The victims family sues the gun maker, importer, distributer and dealer. The family wins the suit.

    The gun maker decides to stop importing their brand into the US, the importer, distributer go out of business.

    The trap gun combo you own is no longer available in the US, because the maker has stopped distribution in the US.

    Perhaps the importer and distributor who sold the subject gun and 5 other brands, including your hi-grade what-ever are out of business.

    No way to get your pride and joy factory serviced or repaired now.

    And finally, the dealer you have traded with the last 25 years is out of business, or you being a gun dealer, have close down, sell your house and your personal combo set to pay for your attorney fees and lawsuit, just because some criminal 1000 miles away, broke into a home, stole an o/u, cut the barrels down and used the sawed off to kill a convenience store clerk.

    Worst case scenario for sure, but not out of the realm of possibility. And the more common the brand, the more likely it could affect you. Lets say the gun stolen was instead of a high grade combo, was a Citori, or Rem 1100 or 870.
