Sneaky sneaky...

Just read this, a group of democratic senators are trying to sneak in some gun control laws into a cybersecurity bill. Its pretty crazy how this happens where a bill will be passed with all sorts of unrelated legislation attached to it. From the article:
Quote :
S.A. 2575 would make it illegal to transfer or possess large capacity feeding devices such as gun magazines, belts, feed stripes and drums of more than 10 rounds of ammunition with the exception of .22 caliber rim fire ammunition.

Hopefully this amendment poisons the onerous "cyber security" bill so that it doesn't pass.

These lefties make me want to puke. We absolutely must get control of the Senate. These fucktards like Pelosi and her Californitarded congress critters need to go.

well the good news is the UN gun control bill failed (this time). They'll try again.

That vote was for cloture - to bring the bill to the floor for a vote. It's still possible the Senate will bring the bill forward for a vote when they re-convene in September.
