H.R. 2324--Aiming At Registering Gun Owners And Putting Gun Shows Out Of Business
 
Friday, May 08, 2009
 
On May 6, at a press conference with Paul Helmke, president of the Brady Campaign, U.S. Representatives Michael Castle (R-Del.) and Carolyn McCarthy (D-N.Y.) introduced H.R. 2324--the "Gun Show Loophole Closing Act."  Masquerading as reform, H.R. 2324 would impose severe bureaucratic restrictions aimed at shutting down gun shows.

The bill is essentially a re-introduction of the failed H.R. 96, introduced in the 110th Congress.  Despite changes from the Lautenberg juvenile justice amendment of 1999, on which the measure is based, H.R. 2324 fails to address gun owners' most significant concerns.  In several areas it is even more restrictive than past attempts to regulate gun shows. H.R. 2324 would create gun owner registration, massive new government red tape, and allow harassment of gun show organizers, vendors and attendees.  The bill also ignores a glaring problem--multiple government studies prove gun shows are not a source of "crime guns."

Anti-gun Senator Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) introduced a companion bill (S. 843) in the U.S. Senate in late April.

I would like to get a letter writing campaign together to fight this bill it pisses me off even more that Castle is a sponsor of this bill. On two notes again Hawkeye what can you come up with for a nasty gram? If any of the open carry people are interested I ask that you please also take up this cause.

I would like to use a bat instead of a letter.

any idea on where Beau Biden stands on the Second Amendment? any luck he is any less anti-gun than his old man? we have to work on pro-gun dems, since there is a better chance of Bigfoot landing Airwolf on The Green than getting a pro-gun Republican elected to national office from this state...

My understanding is he runs about the same as his dad when it comes to the 2nd Amendment.
