yea.. I mailed everyone I could stating that I oppose HR1022
more to worry about is HR1859 - banning large magazines

I wonder if Levin's camp can even read, this is the reply I got on 4/11:

Thank you for contacting me about gun safety related legislation. I support sensible gun safety laws and strict enforcement of those laws to help stem the tide of crimes committed with firearms. I believe Congress can and should pursue legislative solutions to prevent gun violence without infringing on the rights of law-abiding citizens.

I was an original cosponsor of the Brady Law (P.L.103-159), which requires prospective handgun purchasers to undergo criminal background checks before purchasing firearms. Between 1994 and 1999, over 22 million background checks were completed and more than 536,000 felons, fugitives and other prohibited persons were prevented from illegally purchasing firearms. I also support extending the protections of the Brady Law to purchases made at gun shows, thereby closing the loophole that currently permits gun sales without criminal background checks.

I also support increased funding for law enforcement efforts aimed at curbing gun-related crime. I have worked to increase the number of Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) agents and have supported funding for local prosecutors to target gun-related crimes. Between 1993 and 2000, strengthened enforcement efforts resulted in a 16 percent increase in the number of gun cases filed and a 41 percent increase in the number of offenders sentenced to more than five years in prison nationwide. I will continue to support funding for law enforcement efforts to ensure that our gun laws are strictly enforced.

If you would like to learn more about my views and record on this issue, I encourage you to visit the gun safety section of my website at [http://levin.senate.gov].

Best wishes.

Sincerely,
Carl Levin

yes, HR1022 does both, but the odds of it going through aren't as great as HR1859 getting passed.

Personally, I'm just as worried about 1022 passing. The non-shooting public and (worse) many lawmakers have no clue about guns, in general, and "assault" weapons, specifically. Hell, one of the co-sponsors of the bill didn't know what a barrel shroud was (and got called out on it in an interview) but she wants to ban rifles with them, anyways.

A lot of people only know these firearms from watching to many "gangsta" movies. The majority of shootings happen using small-caliber handguns that are cheap and available on the street, not a $1000 AR or $400 to $500 AK.

I currently own an AR-15 Carbine, am building an FN FAL, and will probably build another AR and an AK variant. Why? A few reasons.

1) I enjoy building something and seeing if it will work as intended
2) I am a military history buff and get a kick out of collecting military firearms
3) Mil surplus ammo is fairly cheap to shoot (for now)
4) They're just damn fun to plink around with
5) In a pinch, they could be used in a self-defense role

Chances are I'll never have to defend my home with one of them and I know I'll definitely never be committing a crime with any of them. But, why should I have to give up my right to own them or build any in the future?

I think the reason that so much gun legislation is introduced is to play on the fears of people who don't own them and don't know anything about them. By "standing up" against gun owners, it makes our representatives look tough and protective to those who are easily scared. Fear breeds unreasonable ideas in people's brains. Guns are scary = must be bad. Many people only understand what they see in the media. The anti-gun mindset didn't seem to be an issue in history before the sixties

Babies scare the hell out of me....until I had one and learned about it

I don't believe in gun (pistol or rifle) regulation but I do agree with any semi-automatic military based regulation. If you can't hunt with one shot at a time then you don't deserve to kill something.

"The only way that I would ever let go of my guns would be if you came over here right now and tried to pry them from my dead, lifeless fingers, okay? If you can get it from my kung-fu grip, then you can come and have it, okay? Otherwise, step off, bitch."

The problem with a train of thought like that is that it gives a foothold under the vague label of "sensible gun legislation." Reading through the HR1022 verbage, you'll see that the magazine ban affects all guns, not just "semi-automatic military based firearms". Pretty soon 10 rounds is excessive and it becomes "sensible" to limit all guns to 5 rounds. Then it's sensible to ban all semi-automatic weapons, and so on.

The FAL is a .308 and my next AR will be a 6.8mm SPC (fairly new .270 based cartridge) and both might be used for hunting deer. When using the required 5 round magazines, I'll have the same magazine capacity as Joe Blow with his bolt-action Remington or Winchester. Does my choice of firearm make me a greater danger to society because it's a semi-auto?

Gun control, what a waste of time. all it does it limit sane people who aren't going to kill anyone with their guns.

aren't they going to realize that Criminals don't normally acquire their guns legally

I'm not saying everyone needs an assault weaponry, but legislating it more just going to piss off collectors and gun enthusiasts

weak thinking

I can get to work going 55 mph. I guess the govt should limit all cars to a top speed of 55 mph. If you can't control your car (or gun) over 55 mph (or a 6+ shot mag) then it is your responsability to have self control... not the governments.

I have always hunted with my "assault" rifle, if you call a SKS an assault rifle, now my siaga is a bit of a different story since it will take a AK 30 rd clip. My FAL is also good for turning deer inside out. somthing has to be done about the government trying to take our guns again, hell Im just finiallly able able to play with half of them

that is a very good comparison right there. My 1911 holds 7+1 or 8+1 that would be baned also. There are people out there that can not take control of there life and want the government to do it. And since they think they can not control theres we must not be able to control ours also bite me

Guns are cool, ever go shooting? I used to own a match-grade air rifle when I was a kid. Learned pretty fast that I had no remorse firing that thing at people I didn't like.

I think I could kill a human before I could kill an animal, anyhoo, it's best I don't have firearms...but they're totally sweet. (and pee pee size independent - that's what exocages are for)

The Second Amendment isn't about hunting.

People kill - not guns. I suspect there are instances of arson fires that have killed more people than at Va Tech. Should we ban lighters?

Another example of weak-minded liberal thinking - gesture politics. A bad thing happened, so we have to do something - even if it's stupid.
