Taking a quick break between "Project Gunwalker" posts to pass along an urgent alert from VCDL, passed on to me. Sorry, no time to purty it up:
Can you punch out to your groups? This is Schumer's way of stopping McConnell's vote against Obamacare, and I can see the Dead Elephants saying "the symbolic win on Obamacare is worth the ire of the nut-job community."

> I just got word that there may be an attempt to slip a magazine ban similar to the one proposed by anti-gun Congresswoman Caroline McCarthy into a normally benign Federal Aviation Administration bill using an amendment in the U.S. Senate.
> They can't really "sneak" it on without a vote on the amendment and therein lies our defense against it.
> I contacted Senator Warner's and Senator Webb's office and they confirmed that they have gotten phone calls on this issue this morning from concerned constituents. They say nothing is on the docket for *today* and they can't yet confirm the validity of the rumor, but they are working on doing so.
> Either way, we need to play this safe and flood both offices with calls letting both Senator Warner and Senator Webb know that magazine bans are not acceptable and to please oppose any effort to impose such a ban in any way.

America! It's about
Won’t go anywhere! Has to pass the house!!!!!
RINOs go along with it and call it a fair trade, and take credit for stopping zerocare.
Fascists get their gun ban and everyone goes home happy.
Hope I'm wrong.
This is an internet rumor folks.
I spoke to Senator Hutchison’s staff. She is co-chair of this committee.
1. McCarthy is a rep not a senator.
2. There are no amendments on this bill. The staffer said this bill is totally clean.
3. The staffer said there is no way this amendment would get on any bill as this particular sub committee is pretty good with delivering clean bills to the senate floor.
Thanks for checking. If this is the response from Hutchison’s office, it’s likely to be correct.
Good, but the way these jackwads in Congress now handle legislation, we need to be particularly on guard to prevent this crap from happening.
