Oscar Poppa reminds us that we need to remain Eternally Vigilant against those who would attempt to take from us our Right to Keep and Bear Arms. He has provided a partial list of federal anti-gun legislation that we need to speak out against. The anti's are getting backed into a corner, and a corner is where a rat fights fiercest.
Quite a few folks are still saying that gun control on the federal level is a dead issue. Someone forgot to mention that to the Anti's.
Here is a quick list of pending federal anti gun legislation:
H.R. 96 - Closes the "Gun Show Loophole" by pretty much shutting down gun shows. 4 Cosponsors.
H.R. 297 - Expands the National Insta Check System. 17 Cosponsors.
H.R. 1022 - Bans Firearms that look like someones idea of an assault weapon. 47 Cosponsors. More on HR 1022 here.
H.R. 1784 - Bans the FN Five-seveN Pistol and 5.7 x 28mm SS190 and SS192 cartridges. This bill would also give the Attorney General Carte Blanch discretion on determining other calibers to be banned due to the potential of penetrating soft body armor. 12 Cosponsors.
S 1237 - The No-Fly List = No Guns List bill. 8 Cosponsors.
S 1331 - Places .50 caliber rifles under Title II regulations of the Gun Control Act of '68. This bill is horrible and has 10 Cosponsors. The Cosponsors are a who's who list of anti's in the Senate. I will mention more on this bill at a later date. Until then, go and read it, then start writing.
There is more anti gun legislation pending in D.C., this list only includes bills that have cosponsors.
Oscar Poppa did a more in depth job of describing a few of these bills, head on over and see what he has to say.
