    Even if this was true, there are not enough prisons in this country to hold all the gun owners that would refuse to obey!!!! I told my wife we would file separate returns if this were to happen, mine would say "None of damn your business, now let me know which prison I am to report to."

    I think they tried something similar around the time Clinton was president, it failed misribly.

    Blair Holt was sent to committee, ostensibly to die. However, like an unnoticed campfire ash, it could come to life again unnoticed, when you least expect it, and cause a lot of damage.

    Sometimes legislation creeps forward very slowly like a glacier. I don't know how to find out if this thing is completely dead.

    One rule I try to follow with my fellow shooting buddies, I don't talk politics or religion. I don't even want to know their political or religious affiliations. Anything else is fair game. Our love of shooting is all I care about. If I wanted to debate politics I sure wouldn't pick T/S as my forum. Too many people lose friends over that stuff hence I try not to even open the political threads here.

    FOR THE UNINFORMED:

    Run these things through Snopes or Wikipedia before you post. You are correct, this is crap. However this was first floated by the democraps in 1986 and has been every 3 or 4 years since. I agree it is alarming and could be a serious threat to our ownership. But not this year.....yet.

    dzeh, how can you care about shooting without being aware of the threats to the sport we love?

    If you don't want to be vigilant and protect your rights you will lose them.

    I would rather be wrong about this than have it happen without knowing.

    snopes is not always right, many times they purposely lie for their liberal friends. One time this was apparent was when it was first said that BO was a muslim, snopes denied that he was by using BO's own book as proof. But according to his own book he was raised a muslim-totally contradicting what snopes themselves said.

    Congress has been trying to get this into law for many years and when it does happen all the libtard trolls here will still deny it....or blame Bush!
