This bill is gaining support, and groundwork has been laid to slip it thru.
Please don't take my comments to endorse complacency. Far from it. We do need to be vocal and active. I simply feel that our chances of killing it are far better than they were 18 years ago.
As far as slipping through, I don't see it. The issue has been all over the news, and gun owners (including a lot of whom were complacent back then) are more concerned with the issue.
