Michael Bloomberg is not a Senator or a Representitive, but he has enough money to own a few. He has a Federal bill up for consideration that would impose onerous new requirements on gun owners, and even set up an eternal federal list of any one who buys or sells a gun.
Our own temporary Senator, M. Bennet, is on as a co-sponsor, and Bloomberg is trying to pressure Udall to bet on board.
Some of the salient details include a requirement to register the names of both the buyer and the seller of a firearm, along with a history of how the seller used the weapon, and how the buyer intends to use it.
Frankly, I don't see much chance of this passing, but given the suicide bomber mentality that's taken hold among the Dems, it behooves us to make sure our legislators understand that this is most certainly NOT the will of anyone besides M. Bloomberg.
Oh yes, and don't forget, when writing your congress-critter, to include a line or two requesting the BATFE be completely defunded, if only as a cost-saving measure.
