    Default Gun control?

    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!

    Well, this started off as a really interesting thread. Too bad we couldn't keep it that way. (Rick_C 2009, Classic RTF)

    Here is the official NRA legislative action website for all things legislative for state and federal.

    You can sign up for a very informative weekly email that covers legislative action nationwide.
