Is H.R. 1022 Gaining Traction?

Over the weekend, Sebastian commented on a PA legislator who had signed onto H.R. 1022, a new assault weapons ban introduced by Carolyn McCarthy. Pat Murphy Jumps on Gun Banning Bandwagon is the post by Sebastian that caught my eye and caused me to look and see if there was any new activity on H.R. 1022.

It seems that H.R. 1022 has gained a few new cosponsors since my last check. H.R. 1022 now has 66 cosponsors. The most recent 6 have signed on in just the last couple of weeks. Someone is stirring the pot and pushing this horrendous piece of legislation. More than 15% of the House are now signed onto this bill as cosponsors. Not bad for a bill that everyone insists is dead in the water.

I sure do wish that rebate check would hurry up and get here, I want to buy my new XD-45 Tactical before it becomes a banned assault weapon...

Here's my opinion. I have studied the list of those who have co-sponsored this bill. The majority are from inner-cities and far-left burbs. Almost every one is either rank and file or fringe democrat.

The fact that so many reps have co sponsored this bill is of concern, which is why we must stay vigilant.

However...most moderate democrats are on the side of republicans on this bill, since this was one of the major reasons they beat the republicans in the previous election.

I don't think the bill is dead just yet....but it is certainly not going anywhere.

It now has 67. This bill is a gapping hole for the government to attempt to bypass the second amendment. In the event that it does pass I see it getting overturned by the Supreme Court.

Think about this H.R 1022 gives the Attorney General the authority
to determine which guns are allowable and which ones arn't in effect he can do what he wants and totally strip us of our rights.Good ole "Abe" Hussein Obama.Do Ya Smell It. LBF

I saw that lying, foul-mouthed excuse for a Secretary of State on Fox news last night telling Greta VanSusteren that Police Chiefs all over America "begged" the Clinton Administration for the 1994 Gun Ban. What a lie!! That was a political move by Clinton to try and bolster his slipping job ratings with "soccer moms" in the burbs, who were scared of little Johnny getting his brains blown out by some "right-wing gun nut". (Also known as law abiding gun owners) Now they're using the gun problem in Mexico as the current excuse to go after our firearms. I've never sent a gun to Mexico in my life, and don't know of anyone who has. The root of this problem is the tidal wave of illegal aliens coming across the borders EVERY DAY! A problem neither side will address because they want their votes. We have slipped into a sad, dark abyss in this country....and I don't think we will get out of it any time soon.
God help us all!
