Here is a earmark amendment to the cybercrime bill that will most likely hit the Senate floor this week. It is on the S.3414 part of the bill. Amendment 2 (S.AMDT.2575) under miscellaneous page S5403. I would put in a link but it times out after 30min. Just go to senate.gov and active legislation if you want to see it. Follow the above location to find it.


[``(v)(1)(A)(i) Except as provided in clause (ii), it shall be unlawful for a person to transfer or possess a large capacity ammunition feeding device.

[Page: S5403] GPO's PDF
``(ii) Clause (i) shall not apply to the possession of a large capacity ammunition feeding device otherwise lawfully possessed within the United States on or before the date of the enactment of this subsection.

``(B) It shall be unlawful for any person to import or bring into the United States a large capacity ammunition feeding device.

``(2) Paragraph (1) shall not apply to--

``(A) a manufacture for, transfer to, or possession by the United States or a department or agency of the United States or a State or a department, agency, or political subdivision of a State, or a transfer to or possession by a law enforcement officer employed by such an entity for purposes of law enforcement (whether on or off duty);

``(B) a transfer to a licensee under title I of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954 for purposes of establishing and maintaining an on-site physical protection system and security organization required by Federal law, or possession by an employee or contractor of such a licensee on-site for such purposes or off-site for purposes of licensee-authorized training or transportation of nuclear materials;

``(C) the possession, by an individual who is retired from service with a law enforcement agency and is not otherwise prohibited from receiving ammunition, of a large capacity ammunition feeding device transferred to the individual by the agency upon that retirement; or

``(D) a manufacture, transfer, or possession of a large capacity ammunition feeding device by a licensed manufacturer or licensed importer for the purposes of testing or experimentation authorized by the Attorney General.''.

(c) Penalties.--Section 924(a) of such title is amended by adding at the end the following:

``(8) Whoever knowingly violates section 922(v) shall be fined under this title, imprisoned not more than 10 years, or both.''.

(d) Identification Markings.--Section 923(i) of such title is amended by adding at the end the following: ``A large capacity ammunition feeding device manufactured after the date of the enactment of this sentence shall be identified by a serial number that clearly shows that the device was manufactured after such date of enactment, and such other identification as the Attorney General may by regulation prescribe.''.]

This link was on my yahoo home page last night. I do not know how legitamite the site is so I didn't post it when I first saw it.
It says the libs tried to sneak it in the cyber security bill.

These effin idiots will never "get it".
I received my first carry permit in 1992 and carried a gun with 12 round mag and 1 spare mag for a total of 24 rounds on my person. When I bought a new carry gun in 1997 after the AWB was in place I had a 10 round mag in the gun with 2 spares, so these liberal idiots did nothing more then have me carry 6 more rounds then I did before they started their games.

This amendment will be voted down by a large margin (vote on the amendment is next week, I believe). Not only all republicans but a good number of democrats will shut it dow. No way this can go in the current environment and before elections. Schumer and company know this very well.
