New gun control bill introduced:
[quote]The first major anti-gun bill of the new Congress has already been introduced, and it could prove to be the most serious threat to the Second Amendment we face under the new congressional leadership.
On the first full day of the new Congress, anti-gun Rep. Carolyn McCarthy introduced H.R. 297, the most massive expansion of the Brady law since it passed in 1993. This is a bill you helped kill last year, but the new House leadership will be even more eager to pass it than were their predecessors.

[i][b]Surprisingly and disturbingly for gun rights advocates, Rep. John Dingell of Michigan, a former NRA Director, has joined with McCarthy as an original cosponsor of her bill, H.R. 297.
