HR 308 Co-Sponsors

Below is the latest list of sponsors and co-sponsors for Carolyn McCarthy’s HR 308 – The Large Capacity Ammunition Feeding Device Act. The list primarily consists of the usual Northeast and California suspects.

I do see Congressman Steve Cohen (D-TN) on the list. He made some news recently when he said he was going to get his Tennessee CCW permit. I wonder if he’ll ask for an amendment to exclude “high-ranking government officials” such as Congressmen from the bill.

  1. Our government is wasting our tax money by chasing the illusion that creating more gun laws will cure the problem. The ones that are the problem will not follow nor care about the law.

    Our government will only harm law abiding gun owners. Thanks for making the streets safe for criminals.

  2. Two from Texas, Sheila Jackson Lee from Houston and Al Green I'll have to look him up don't remember what city district 9 is. These people have to go home some time. I have been in contact with Blake Farenholt Dist.27 TX and his people say he's not going for it as I'm sure that most of the Texas Reps won't touch this bill with a Ten Foot Pole. %7 sponsors so far still don't mean it will pass. These assholes are grand-standing on a tragedy. Traitor,Rope,Tree,some assembly required.

  3. Steve Cohen (D-TN) is Democrat and a sellout to his state! Blacks vote for Democrats in TN. They don't want the white victims to have weapons to defend themselves!

  4. The Democrats ought to confine their activities to limiting welfare to illegals, securing the border, removing illegals and making the uber rich like Rockefeller pay his taxes. They dont even know how much money that family has-but they darn sure know he doesn't pay his taxes. It is time to have a tax revolt. Do like the illegals the Dems swear are paying taxes and claim the maximum number of dependents and then don't file a return. Use a fake SS ID because you aren't going to pay any in (although if you were an illegal you'd sure get it in welfare and free medical). America HAS to be disgusted with BOTH parties. That Romney/Gingrich, Obama/Biden are the BEST this country has to offer for leadership is depressing. Why don't they pass a law calling lobbying what it is-BRIBERY. The average person can not afford to put millions in a campaign for favorable legislation-but FOREIGN nationals and multinational corporations can.

  5. GUNS AND HARDWARE ARE NOT THE PROBLEM…PERIOD

    MENTALLY DEFECTIVE PEOPLE ARE!! YOUR ENFORCING THE LAWS ON THE BOOKS ALREADY ARE DEFICIENT!! YOU WANT TO ADD MORE IDIOT BILLS…YOU UNAMERICAN MORONS.

    WOULD YOU PEOPLE IN GOVT. PLEASE REMOVE YOUR BLINDERS AND LOOK FOR THE TRUE FACTS INSTEAD OF REHASHING THE MORONIC
    MISINFORMATION, LIES, IGNORANCE AND NONSENSE THAT THE NEWS AGENCIES HAVE SO EFFECTIVELY SPOON FED YOU!!

    IF YOU THINK THIS NATION SHOULD HEAL OVER TO THE IGNORANCE OF YOU SHALLOW POLITICIANS AND THAT YOU ARE SO NOT WILLING TO REALLY SEEK THE TRUTH,
    SHAME ON ALL OF YOU.

    THE ONLY US CITIZENS THAT AGREE WITH YOU ARE THE ONE'S YOU FEED LIES TO….DO NOT TRY TO DENY THAT!! WE AMERICANS ARE LISTENING TO YOU AND WE WILL HOLD YOU ACCOUNTABLE!! NEXT ELECTION YOU WILL BE OUT. WE ARE REALLY SICK OF YOU IDIOT, SHALLOW POLITICIANS!!

    TRY TO REMEMBER OF, BY AND FOR THE PEOPLE?? STOP LYING TO US TO GET YOUR CRAP PASSED. IF YOU BELIEVE IN GOD YOU WILL BE PUNISHED FOR YOUR LIES, YOU PEOPLE OF RESPONSIBILITY. YOU ARE RUINING THIS COUNTRY……………
