Very superstitious...

Are you superstitious? The last Assault Weapons Ban in Congress was HR.1022. The House magazine ban bill is HR.308, the Senate S.32. The FAA bill is S.223. I feel that the universe may be conspiring against us on this one.
Okay, when I see HR.4570 or S.3220, I'm officially going to think something's up...

They may be on to something. Texas' 30.06 sounds fishy to me.

See? ;)

When somebody named Whelen introduces HB.35, then I'm worried.

We had a Georgia SB 308 that liberalized a lot of our carry laws and scrubbed the "Public Gathering" language from Ga Code.

Just start counting. You find that, with the combination of metric calibers, and inch calibers being expressed in various ways (30, 300, 307, 308. 7.5, & 7.62 all pertain to the same bore size for example) it's hard NOT to hit on a number that doesn't pertain to a caliber or gun model. -- Lyle

I'll go to Code Red when HB 1911, a bill to ban manly guns, comes down from Schumer's office.

I started doing this with local bus routes. Curiously the bigger calibers tend to travel through less safe neighborhoods.

I'll be annoyed if they pass this ban as Public Law 303.

If as someone at Sebastian's said, bill sponsors choose the number as an inside tweak of gunowners, they might want to rethink their strategy, considering the recent success rate of anti legislation.

But I think this little theory gives antis or their government shills way too much credit; I prefer to think it's just cosmic poetic justice.

Or, they could know more about guns than we think they do, and they're NOT operating out of ignorance, but on a carefully planned, unAmerican agenda, driven by Soviet-style desires, and with NO regard to the Constitution.

Stuff like this always reminds me of MidwayUSA's phone number. Still stuck in my mind, and haven't called them since...hmmm...2001-ish.

Crotalus,

I wish. I'd much rather be a victim of a fiend than a fool.

I'll be worried when they get to bill 4570 too -

Lesse, it's a two year session of congress, that's 500 working days for you or me, or 300 for our hard-working, 3 day workweek public masters, I mean, servants. So bill 4500 would mean 15 bills per day being written, likely still with 0.003 bills per day being read. Those would be the short bills, to rename post offices and stuff.

WV: duckstag. If you see a mallard with antlers, it's a duckstag. If you see a stag charging you, duck.

I don't know, Tam. They're equally dangerous when in power. But I guess it's less embarrassing to be taken by a fiend than by a fool.

H.B.219, Sponsor: Rep. Ackley (D-NY)

THEN we worry.

SB3220 needs to be titled "A Resolution for Response When one Sends for His Baby, and She Don’t Come"

Just sayin'

LOL! :D
