House panel votes to kill new rifle rule


www.washingtonpost.com

Two days after President Obama approved a new rule to crack down on gunrunning to Mexico, a House committee voted Wednesday to block it from taking effect.

The House Appropriations Committee voted 25 to 16 to insert a rider into the Justice Department’s spending bill, prohibiting the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives from implementing the regulation.

This story is short and sweet with no added commentary... must have really upset the Washington Post people that they had nothing to add...

still The rule required 8,500 gun dealers along the U.S.-Mexico border to report, within five days of sale, multiple purchases of semiautomatic rifles that are larger than .22-caliber and use detachable magazines... no one liked that rule and feared it would be a stepping stone to enact a similar law(s) nation wide...

with a vote of 25 to 16 that officially kills this stupid law... bet their cheering and whooping it up, over at the NRA offices today... today might be a good time to hit them up for a free life-time membership...

Even though this seems like a small and almost trivial win, it is still a big win in my book. I do think that it was nothing more than a stepping stone to push this rule on every FFL dealer inside the US. There is no reason that it should be reported if someone purchases 2 or more long guns if they are doing it legally.

that's kind of a dead issue too...
From another news source... The Hill

Rehberg’s amendment passed with 25 members voting for it and 16 voting against. The measure garnered support from retiring Democratic Rep. Dan Boren (Okla.), who partnered with Rehberg earlier this year to successfully amend H.R. 1 with nearly identical language blocking funds for the heightened reporting requirements from the fiscal 2011 continuing appropriations bill.


H.R. 1 was the bill to create that national handgun registry

That bill later died in the Senate, and Democrats stripped the reporting-requirement provision from a subsequent measure.


however the The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence..AKA... Bunch of gun grabbing liberal SOB's... hasn't given up ... not by a long shot...

May one ask if the law , though blocked financially from being implemented, now stands enaacted and ready for implementation say three years from now?
if the house deems the funds to enforce it?
Or does this just sh*&tcan the whole thing?

So the bill and the POTUS' "paper trail handgun check" executive order thing were intertwined?

Obama's whole by decree measure wont go anywhere or amount to anything?

If so that's great news.

Good news for once. I am pleased moronic gun control laws are being thwarted.

Instead of trying to control and limit sane, non-felons from gun ownership, maybe they should actually try concentrating on the problem; criminals and psychopaths owning and selling guns.

That would make to much sense though. The only possible solution must be a blanket option that negligibly effects criminals, and has devastating effects on the law-abiding citizen.

Good I'm glad this bill is dead.

I will say that the gun running problem to Mexico is a big one.

If they are going to write legislation to prevent it (even though "they" are behind it) perhaps it should actually make sense and be enforceable...
