This bill SHOULD die. The premise of this bill is very disturbing to our constitutional rights regardless of most people's views on gun control. Remember Obama saying he supported "sensible gun laws" This isnt it. I wonder if this bill was worded to be so oppressive so that the next one will be less intrusive and more able to pass the proper channels.
Regardless of people views I feel that this bill is an outrage. Right now is not the time to deal with this issue. A failing economy, record job losses are way more important to out country than guns that have been around forever.
Write your representatives regardless. Emails work but a well crafted letter copied and sent to several congress members works better.
