    H.r. 197 & h.r. 1074

    Of possible interest to the forum are the below two bills that are passing though the US House of Representatives:


    Sep 22, 2010 - Bill Action
    H.R. 1074: Firearms Interstate Commerce Reform Act
    http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?bill=h111-1074
    Cosponsorship change.
    Rep. Smith [R-NJ4]: New cosponsor.


    Sep 22, 2010 - Bill Action
    H.R. 197: National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act of 2009
    http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?bill=h111-197
    Cosponsorship change.
    Rep. Herseth Sandlin [D-SD]: New cosponsor.

    Why the angry topic smilie? Both sound like pro-gun legislation? Though I did not read the fulltext, only the summary.

    I would be very happy to see HR 197 go through. I would then be able to carry when I went back to NY to visit family.

    Tried to figure out HR 1074, looks like it's going to convolute that part of the law. "2a You can't do xyz. 2b You can do xyz."


    *shrugs*

    But it seems to be good. That's the law I'd like to see passed.

    Unfortunately, both of these bills have effectively died in committee as this Congress is effectively over. I cannot see House passing these, much less the Senate taking them up in the Lame Duck session. Perhaps they will be reintroduced during the next Congress...

    I doubt it will be introduced in the next Congress if we continue the same leadership.

    I don't know how the 'angry topic smile' got on there when I first posted this. My error.

    I went back a few minutes later when I noticed it and attempted to remove it.

    I am still a newbie when it comes to forums/group lists like this. I am also on an RV'er (http://www.rv.net/ ) list which uses the same format and I have had "posting accidents" over there too.

    It's ok, just an honest mistake. None of us will burn you at the stake for it.
