I'm willing to bet that this bill will die in committee. This guy Gilliard is all alone on this one. No co-sponsors what so ever but it's early. Watch it over the next few months and see if anyone will sign on. Just in case it's still a good idea to contact your Rep.

So my Mossberg 930SPX is an "assault weapon" but my FAL with a 20rd mag is not? How about an M4? The stock does not collapse. Yeah, I'm being snarky. Just tired of the wimp politicians who make senseless laws that make lawbiding citizens into criminals.

If you are not active in local and state politics, you better get active! We can no longer afford to be the silent majority.
