    • On May 15, 2009, by CowboyRick - This bill is very bad in scope-there is no due process and they want to rely upon a list that is very well known to have vast amounts of bad information on it. These people need to get a life and leave us alone-utilize the laws that are on the books, don't make any more.

    • On May 18, 2009, by AlphaOmega - Well if you like guns and enjoy the 2nd Amendment then you might not like the truth about Dennis Kucinich? "Kucinich is currently drafting legislation that would ban the purchase, sale, transfer, or possession of handguns by civilians. A gun buy-back provision will be included in the bill. “America is being engulfed in violence every day. Let’s show them we have the wisdom and the courage to come from our hearts to meet this challenge,” Kucinich said." http://kucinich.house.gov/News/DocumentSingle.aspx?DocumentID=62819
