Sounds like a good plan

Roll Call:

Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) has quietly been preparing a series of gun rights amendments that he intends to offer to must-pass Senate bills this year, hoping to force Democrats to take tough votes and draw clear distinctions between the two parties heading into the midterms.

Via SIH, who has more.

    I’d want ATF reform first. Allows for importation of barrels and recievers as “replacement parts.” Plus it slaps down the ATF a little to let them know who is boss (the Congress)

  2. Standard Mischief Says:

    My prediction is that they (R) will not try to nix the antiquated “only buy handguns in your own state” law.

    We can nix that because we have NICS now.

  3. Standard Mischief Says:

    Run every ATF “clarification” through congress first. After all, that’s what Article 1, Section 1 says we should do.

    We can follow up with the IRS, the EPA, and every other executive branch that tries to make law by publishing regulations.

    I would be more impressed if the republicans would have done this back when they had a real chance of being passed into law. They only seem to want to pass pro gun bills when an anti-gunner is in the white house.

    Steve never disappoints.

    I was going to post “In before the Republican bashers” but alas, I was too late.

    And I do remember the Republicans passing tort reform for gun manufacturers. Not to mention the fact that they allowed the AW Ban to die.

    I may like the results, but I don’t like the tactics. Legislators tacking random things on to “must pass” bills is one of the reasons our government is so messed up. I don’t like it when Republicans do it, and I don’t like it when Democrats do it.

  7. Steve Says:

    I am pleased to know that you are not dissapointed in me Captain. Hopefully I will not dissapoint you in the future.
    The republicans throw us a bone once in a while but for the most part they ignore us until they need us.
    Just holding the line against new restrictions and nibbling around the edges is not good enough. They let the assault weapons ban expire? How about repealing it in 2001? That would have impressed me.
    If Coburn gets his bills passed and signed into law, I will stand corrected but this looks to me like election year politicking.

  8. Steve Says:

    I’d also like to add that I would be proud to be known as a republican basher. Their failure to lead based on conservative principles as well as their corruption gave the dems the opening to put Reed, Pelosi and Obama in charge of this country. I think that history will show that the American republic had a much closer call in the past year than anyone now realizes.

    That’s if we’re lucky.

    If not, we are history.

    Getting rid of in-state-only handgun purchases doesn’t help those of us behind enemy lines. Assuming it follows the longarm “loosening” we still have to deal with the laws of the home state as well as the state of sale. Which essentially means “no sale” for residents of infringing localities.
