    This just goes to show you how far some politicians will go to get their agenda passed. Not to mention the news media. The democrats stand for nothing to help this country. I would feel like an idiot to be a member of that bunch. Hopefully, this circus act going on now will back fire and Trump will keep going for four more years.

    Dems have pre-filed a bill that would basically make our laws the same or worse as California's. Feels like time to put up or shut up.

    No grandfather clause. ONE attribute makes it illegal. Remember, those mini shotgun shells? Well how many of those will your 870 hold? Hmmm

    10rd mags. Muzzle brakes.

    I'm sure most of us will sit on our hands and be Fudds about this. Some won't. Start calling your state delegates and senators and the governor. Write emails and paper letters too.

    I will call/send letters. Doesn't matter. If it gets out of Committee it will pass.

    Maybe easier to petition to give Northern Virginia back to the Indians, or let Maryland or D.C. annex it. Either way, sure would make the rest of Virginia more palatable.

    I like it K. Take PG/Montgomery/DC/City of Alexandria/Fairfax/Arlington/Prince William = New DC. It would be the most liberal rich state in America. Think of all the hybrids, solar panels, and gun free zones they could have. They would already have a football team worthy of all due respect from such a state.....

    Get a bunch of kindergardeners in there. You might get more accomplished. Don't understand how grown men and women can act and behave so stupid. I Get a chuckle when standing in line at the bank with the sign " your money is backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. Government" Yea,right.

    Not to be an ignoramus, but what committee does this originate in?
