Many of you may not remember 1986. When this occurred everybody knew what Rangel did. It was obvious, it was even reported on the evening news, but he had the gavel and he could do what he wanted. That's how the House works. This was all mulled over and disputed 24 years ago and nothing came of it. NOT that it should be forgotten, or that you shouldn't try whatever you can, just that it's an uphill battle. The FOPA sponsors urged Reagan to sign it even with the Hughes poison pill, thinking they could get it repealed in the next session, but the '86 elections brought a worse party split with the Democrats regaining the Senate and taking more House seats making any attempt to pass any more pro-gun legislation next to impossible.
