Last night my local nooz

Mentioned in passing, what Biden's Commision is considering.

I guarantee that most people will not be happy.

For the momemt, on the table, a new assault weapons ban. (If anybody is surprised, this was a gimme...let's see how they do it)

The second, again a gimme, limit size of magazines.

The big one, if it makes it into law, will make a real difference, close the gun show loophole.

You can guarantee the NRA is making calls and threats as I type this. Of the three proposals the NRA will fight the last the hardest...they have, every time it is proposed.

1. We have to support all these proposals!

Let VP Biden know via Congress.gov how you feel about this.

2. The chance that anything will get past the Republican Congress or the NRA aproved...

Democrats is slight, at best. But we will know who prefers guns warm and children dead in Congress and the Senate.

4. I want a recorded vote

And if any in my delegation vote it down, I will make them pay next election. They are all democrats...

7. I will not vote for nor donate money to anyone approved by the NRA...

Only candidates who work for gun control are approved.

10. Me too.

I was working for a local Dem, who was endorsed by the NRA. As soon as I found out this much, I quit volunteering for him.

3. Limiting the size of magazines won't help much if people can buy multiple mags

I don't think people should be able to buy separate magazines. They should get the one that comes with the gun PERIOD. You can change a spent mag in 2 seconds, so whether it holds 10 or 30 rounds doesn't make much difference.

5. It does, Loughner was engaged

Precisely at that moment by an unarmed civilian. A limit on the ammo also makes sense.

But...of all the proposals closing the gun show loophole is the one that will have the most immediate effect. The other two, given the number out there, will take years to be felt.
