Now that the democrats are back in power they have already picked up where they left off back in 1994 regarding restricting our rights to certain fire arms. The assault weapons ban of 1994 expired in 2004, and now that the dems are back in power they are attempting to renew and expand the original bill. This has no sunset clause, and covers a much broader spectrum of weapons than the 1994 AWB. Here is a news article about it. If this angers you as much as me please write your congressman/woman and tell them to vote no to this bill. Its currently in committee and is gaining steam picking up several co-sponsors both democrat and republican. Our president has said he would renew such a ban if it comes across his desk and it looks like this is the first serious attempt at doing so. Go to http://www.house.gov/writerep/ and tell your representative to vote NO to H.R. 1022 should it ever hit the house floor.
