    Firearms Legislation-Bill Tracker Notification

    "Anti" legislation links
    Scroll down about ¾ the way and you can see bills introduced.
    Just click on the bill to see the current status and track or take a position.
    The bills will also define which committee has action on them as well as prognosis of passing out of committee.

    Click on the first link here for Representative McCarthy’s legislation. Scroll down and click on the link for H.R. 142 to see all information regarding this bill. Don’t let the Bill titles fool you. You can see it was sent to the Judiciary committee for action. Click on the House Judiciary link and you will see who the Judiciary Chair is, the Minority leader and all members of the committee. The committee members will have to make decisions with regard to the bill you need to tell these folks as well as your local representative what your position is.

    The problem with America is stupidity.
    I'm not saying there should be capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?

    Updated list of bills

    Here is a list of updated bills that I found this morning:

    HR 133 (R);
    HR 35 (R);
    HR 117 (D);
    HR 93 (D);
    HR 142 (D);
    HR 65 (D);
    HR 137 (D);
    HR 141 (D);
    HR 34 (D).

    The texts of the bills are not up on THOMAS yet this morning but can be looked at, when made available, by using the URL http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/z?c113:H.R.133: as this one is to look at HR 133. The URL can be slightly edited to look at the other bills by changing the last part of the URL. Example, to look at HR 35, change the last part to read "113:H.R.35:" and submit.
