    Welp, here we go again.

    http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/z?c109:H.R.1312:

    notice these sections when reading. This was the big stink back when Kerry tried to pass this the last time.

    Their definition of pistol grip is so vague that it literally covers anything used as a grip by the user. That includes standard riflestock grips as well.

    Also this part leaves it open to the government as to what is a sporting firearm and what's not.

    It isn't going to happen. Many democrats are finally waking up and realizing that gun control is a loser issue for them. Tom Delay will make sure this crap never even sees the light of the House floor.

    nope, because even an english style stock functions as a grip... a grip being defined as anywhere a stock can be held by the hand to manipulate the firearm.

    This hasn't passed yet, this is just the same bill proposal that was proposed back before elections last year. Problem is is that last year, Repubs also voted yes to this and it came close to passing. Never underestimate the stupidity or greed of politicians, no matter what party they belong to.

    I can't believe they actually wasted the ink to specifically name the Hi Point carbine in that ban. Who feels threatened by someone shooting a Hi Point of any type?

    I notice the defining features of the 'evil assault weapon' no longer includes a bayonet lug.

    i think the "-ing" saved him from racial connotations.

    Write your reps folks. The squeaky wheel gets the oil, so bill passing isn't the time to be the strong silent type.

    I was joking. I'm in an area where my senators and reps don't need convincing or encouraging on this issue, but it may help them put the pressure on other politicians to drop the issue.

    Thats what I figured, but wanted to make sure there wasn't another name for it that I had never heard.

    You know the kids these days, they make up names for everything.
