This was in an e-mail sent to me by a gun club where I occasionally shoot. I've tried researching it, but unsuccessfully. I have not seen or heard of it elsewhere. Just throwing it out to you as an FYI.

This came up in POTUS. I went to the official Senate web site and found nothing to support these claims. The original poster then recanted the claim.
Unless I'm missing something here, this is a hoax. The only senate or house bill with 2099 dealt with medical lab competition and pricing.

Like I said in POTUS, if I'm wrong, please let me know....and I'll be all over my local politicians like ugly on an ape!
