Lie with dogs and get fleas. Lie with McCarthy and get bedbugs. Lie with the NRA and get billed for your dispensation.
[Excerpt]Either we are equal or we are not. Good people ought to be armed where they will, with wits and guns and the truth. NRA *******$$$$$$$$$$That wasn't enough for the Gun Owners of America, which said on its Web page that it was the only national pro-gun organization to oppose the McCarthy bill. "There are some seemingly pro-gun congressmen who are driven to get anything passed, just so they can say they did something about Virginia Tech," it said.
In reality this may not turn out to be such a bad thing, first off it would not matter if this law was in place or not before the Shooting at VT because it was a Failure of the reporting system not the law that failed in this case as I understand the sequence of events, that said with this new proposal it should if all things are as worded allow a lot of names of our Veterans, to be removed from the list that was applied back when Clinton was in Office. No doubt that time will tell and I have hopes for the best in this situation, as I was adamantly opposed to any collaboration and compromise from the beginning, but after reading the wording of the bill it as I said, "might not be a bad thing", if it corrects the improper inclusion of our Veterans names indiscriminately placed on the list.
