PREVENTION
On the good news side, for the first time I can remember, the antis are spending a lot of time and effort trying to repeal previous laws rather than force new laws down our throat (though as you can see, they still devote the majority of time and effort to that). It shows what eight years of playing offense can do to help protect our rights during the more trying times. I think the memo also gives gun owners a peek at what the more "moderate" Brady Campaign is trying to achieve after having been foiled on their original goal of banning handguns (everybody here at TFL surely remembers the original name of the Brady Campaign, right?)

More importantly, by better understanding the laws the Brady Campaign is proposing, we will better understand what type of effect these laws may have on our rights.

On a related note, I noticed there appears to be a lot of confusion about what legislation has actually been proposed in the 111th Congress. Here is the list from http://thomas.loc.gov/ showing every bill currently proposed in the 111th Congress (right now it is still pretty short so I can post the entire list even though there are no items related to firearms, I expect that to change by January 31)

Broadcaster Freedom Act of 2009
Fair Tax Act of 2009
Fiscal Responsibility Act of 2009
Health Protection Amendment of 2009
Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009
Paycheck Fairness Act
Presidential Library Donation Reform Act of 2009
Presidential Records Act Amendments of 2009
Stronger Economy, Stronger Borders Act of 2009

This is almost exactly the kind list I had in mind. Good enough to be stickied.

I suggest that the bills be listed with the following format:

Bill # ; Name/Title ; Introduced by/sponsor ; # of co-sponsors ; current status. Short description of the bill, if possible

A perma-link if known could also be added. Otherwise, some of you will just have to learn to use Thomas, to view the bills.

Let's use this thread only for listing the proposed legislation or showing that a bill was defeated.

Keep all discussions out of this thread. Start a new thread to discuss individual pieces of Legislation.

Re post #1 -- Brady Campaign "more moderate"? Not likely. They are as far out anti 2nd as ever. The language is toned down as nothing more than a smoke screen. The spot on this leopard are the same today as ever.

I note that David Kopel has done an analysis of the effects of Mayor Bloomberg's "gunshow" bill S.843, which now has 17 co-sponsors in the Senate.

Some important points to be concerned about:

1. Gun show promoters must register with the Attorney General - Sec. 932(a)

2. Promoters must collect and make available to the Federal government records of every single person who sells or even offers to sell a firearm.

3. The Promoter must verify the picture ID, and get the person's signature that they have been notified of the regulatory effects of the bill.

Also as Kopel points out, "Bloomberg authorizes regulations for mandatory reporting of information that would not even be required for a sale at a gun store. The additional information could include how often the seller had used the gun, if the gun had ever been used for self-defense, where the seller obtained the gun, what the buyer planned to do with the gun, how the buyer planned to store the gun, and much more."

This bill was introduced on April 21 and currently has 17 co-sponsors - this represents a little over half of the solid anti-gun votes in the Senate. Currently it is sitting in the Senate Judiciary Committee. While it strikes me as extremely unlikely that this bill is going to go anywhere this session, it is definitely the type of bill we don't want to go anywhere and is probably worth a mention the next time you contact your elected Representatives.

And a big thanks to gc70 for his great work in keeping this thread updated. There may not be a lot of responses to your work; but I guarantee it doesn't go unnoticed.

I just finished reading that 19 page piece of political deceit and spent 15 minutes puking pure concentrated rage and wondering how it is even legal that they misquote, misinterperet, and misdirect the American people like this.
These people are literally evil. They have a prejudicial HATE of guns and the gun community at large and will do whatever it takes short of shooting us to brain the public into seeing things their way, including, but not limited to, repeatedly screaming outright lies in their faces until they take it as gospel truth.

I... I don't,;
I don't even have a word for what I feel right now. I want to crush something, and scream, and yet I'm so confused and dumbfounded by the audacity of these people that I'm baffled...

... and enraged...

... I'm Baff-aged... and I don't know what to do!!!

Please some half-educated person volunteer to go one national television and just plant these people in the dirt with some sound logic and common sense.
Please.
