4. Not "reinstate" but enact a new, tough AWB.

In 2003 the so-called renewal legislation was numbered H.R. 2038, had 111 cosponsors, and died in committee. Rep. Mark Kirk reintroduced it in 2008 as HR 6257 where it died with only four cosponsors. It appears that all of congress ran away from the bill.

This AWB is not the old AWB, this one has teeth. and covers many more guns. In fact, the language can be construed to cover just about all guns.
