    Same old ban as the original, just no expiration date. The opinion seems to be that this is RINO congressman running to the left to save his seat, I hope he loses it a la Devolites Davis.

    Thanks for posting this. I started to but just didn't want to put up with the inevitable grief from some corners.

    Compromise is failure on the installment plan, with payments due on each change of administration. Follow the money.

    I see the DNC and GOP finding agreement once again to pass the screwing on to us. After Obama makes his statement in favor of it that should be followed by McCain's statement that he's in favor of some of it.

    What's the point of even making the law if you require it to expire after a certain period of time? What does such a law accomplish?

    Makes it palatable, looks good, the expiration date is just fine print. Hell I didn't know there was a sunset in the first AWB for 8 years.

    Don't they realize that when the Revolution begins, these ridiculous laws will be be ignoredanyway?

    "Gee General Washington, I'd like to join the Revolution, but the King said I'll be guilty of treason if I take arms against his troops!"

    Do your research he's not the only anti-gun Republican around. Kasich, Warner, Romney, Guliani, Arnold to name five. Not to mention are favorite Bloomberg that makes six.

    Well I've written my congressman about it. Would it be taboo to write all of them in Texas?

    I was wondering the same thing. I know who my district Congressman and Senator are, but thinking if writing the others would be good or not since I'm not in their district.

    Sunset provisions are a great thing for many laws as they allow for assessment of the usefulness of such laws. I for one thing every dime the state and federal budgets spend should be mandatory to have individual sunset clauses--stuff like the Strategic Helium Reserve (yes it does exist) and the national education association need to go bye bye because they have outlived their usefulness by several decades.

    From the SCOTUS decision:

    Like most rights, the Second Amendment right is not unlimited. It is not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose: For example, concealed weapons prohibitions have been upheld under the Amendment or state analogues. The Court’s opinion should not be taken to cast doubt on longstanding prohibitions on the possession of firearms by felons and the mentally ill, or laws forbidding the carrying of firearms in sensitive places such as schools and government buildings, or laws imposing conditions and qualifications on the commercial sale of arms. Miller’s holding that the sorts of weapons protected are those “in common use at the time” finds support in the historical tradition of prohibiting the carrying of dangerous and unusual weapons.

    I have to say I'm a bit worried that the Libbies are going to try to use this for the AWB, claiming that our black rifles are "dangerous and unusual weapons."

    then again, it does say carrying....
