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.
