    H.R.1022 now has co-sponsers

    There has been debate about whether or not we have to worry about H.R.1022 (To reauthorize the "assault weapons" ban). One reason some thought we did not need to worry, is the bill had no co-sponsers. Well, now it does...

    Start buying what you want now!Think about it ?It's political suicide
    to vote against the cops who will support the ban.I support enforcing
    the laws we have on the books but somehow this seems to be stylish
    to keep bringing up.I live in Maine and if my memory is right both my
    republican senators supported ban last time.So much for traditional
    party support!Just look at t.v shows how they slant the subject let alone the nightly news!

    Man Just wait until one of them or thier family is gunned down by some nut with an ak47 after this passes. What will have been the point then huh?

    i dont know what the dems are thinking. I mean they dont have a candidate that has a chance of being elected, they keep proposing the stupidest laws. if they really want to do soemthing useful why not try fixing the national deficit, before we are soo far in debt to the world that other countries come a knockin and here we are now unarmed to repell them.

    PA has some really anti legislators and yes most of them ar Democrates. Rep Fattah, Chaka [D-PA-2] is from Philadelphia. In fact he is running for mayor of that fine crime ridden liberal paradise. He has stated that he supports even more gun laws.

    I really do see his point. It certainly should be a felony for a 18 year old 5 time felon to shot other felons and innocent citizens with the handgun that he purchased from the drug dealer on the corner last night. But wait I think that all of that already brokea dozen state and Federal laws. We need more laws so that these people can then break even more laws while comiting their crimes. The gun control crowd just does not make even a little snse to me.

    Even in Philadelphia there are almost zero crimes committed with LEGALLY OWNED AKs or AR-16.

    Sorry for venting. Carry Always and Stay Safe.

    18 of them as of March 10.

    Sen. Carl Levin [D-MI] has asked "Madam President" to stop the gun violence, sensible laws etcetera...

    I urge my colleagues to take up and pass commonsense legislation that will help address this problem.
    A call to arms to disarm the populace...

    Things are ramping up here for the worst I fear...
