H.R. 1022 is Still Alive and Well

Last time I commented on H.R. 1022, the bill had 49 cosponsors. I had not been keeping much of an eye on it as the general consensus amongst those who have more experience in these issues than I consider it a non issue.

A quick check today (prompted by 45superman's report "More about Biden's "Crime Control and Prevention Act of 2007" ) found that there are now 59 cosponsors to H.R. 1022. 59 is a good percentage of the 435 members of our House of Representatives, and 4 of the cosponsors are on the sub committee where the bill currently resides.

H.R. 1022 has 59 cosponsors, two of which signed on just this past week. Representative Hastings signed on the 22nd, and Kucinich on the 25th.

So here we have Biden introducing a bill in the Senate that would "simply" renew the '94 AWB on one hand, and H.R. 1022 in the House on the other.

Gun control is still a very high priority for the Democrat Party.
