If you don't want this to pass then write your congressmen, write your senators.. and tell everyone else you know to do the same. You don't need to write a lengthy email, just tell them not to pass it and that you will donate money to and vote for their opponents if they do.
Stops the sale, transfer, importation and manufacturing of more than 100 specifically-named firearms as well as certain semiautomatic rifles, handguns and shotguns that can accept a detachable magazine and semiautomatic rifles and handguns with a fixed magazine that can accept more than 10 rounds.
