    This is a heads-up only!

    They may have introduced these bills last year; however, they might open the throttle on start on this bills; however, current data from the committee's indicates that they stalled on the tracks! With election approaching in November the anti-gun issue will got hot - if they cannot ban, go around them through gun shows! It is going to get a little nasty in the coming months - these nutbags are going to pass anything and everything for their agenda! I can scream to my Senate and my House members - it is no go - New Mexico is left wing hardcase!

    It is good to keep abreast of any threats to our gun rights. Yep, those bills are out there in the wings. However, neither of those bills is going to go anywhere this election year. Thankfully, both will die at the end of this congressional session. With any luck one or both houses of congress will be under new management next year.

    Frankly, I'm a bit surprised that Juan McCain did not sign on as a co-sponsor of S. 843. Juan and Joe Lieberman teamed up years ago and introduced a draconian "gun show loophole" bill that, thankfully, went nowhere.
