Not to be sarcastic but...where will you go?
Best solution? Send funds to anyone that is opposing the politicians supporting this for their campaigns, and notify the politicians that are voting in favor of it that their opponents WILL be getting donations.
Spread the word to others as well, via chain mail or whatever other means you have to spread the news, and put the fear of the voter in them.

Man! I already dont like Raul Grijalva, I vote against him any chance I get!!

Like Ben said.. Where will you go? Despite what the media tells you, it isnt easy to just up and leave to another country...

I'll second the question- where are ya going? I've been all over the world and it is an armpit. Even as flawed as this country is with the jackals in D.C. things are STILL BETTER HERE......:D

said Reps. Raul Grijalva of Arizona and Keith Ellison of Minnesota, the two Democrats who are offering the legislation.
Ellison represents a carefully gerrymandered district that centers on Minneapolis. He never saw a criminal he didn't like. This proposal stands zero chance of passing the US house.

Go to Switzerland. They have decent gun laws. :D

Oh, and it won't pass. The American people have already stated they don't want more gun control. If it does happen, there will be hell to pay for everyone involved.

Ok, somewhat a tongue-in-cheek comment. I guess I'll move to the state that says 'screw the Federal funds'. With my current job, I could live anywhere. My company is all over the world, but I could also (and we do have many that do) work from home. Maybe I should start prepping to sell my house. (Yes, I know it will sell for less than what I paid, but I have about 40% equity, so I'll be fine)

If my life is in danger, I'll do whatever I must to stay alive. If the law says I'm not allowed to do that, maybe calling 911 won't be high on my to-do list.

See what happens when someone smiles at ya promising "Hope and Change" and that smiley person is voted to a position of power. Buy your guns now, and turn them in later. It's almost like fast-food service without leaving a tip.

Truthfully, no where else to go that is not too cold.

H.RES.612 only has 4 co-sponsors to this amendment
