Has our Congress heard a word we’ve been saying?

Now we have a group of Representatives who have gotten together and come out with yet another gun restriction bill know as HR301. The gun lobby is, of course, up in arms over this while the Democrats are practically jizzing in their shorts over the new piece of legislation that is designed to ‘stick it’ to the NRA and gun owners everywhere.

My problem with the bill is very simple. I feel it represents yet another regulatory piece of work that will be debated forever before it is passed, expunged or tabled. In all cases, it will take up lots and lots of time while doing absolutely nothing to stop a hemorrhaging patient (the US) that is slipping rapidly from ‘guarded’ to ‘critical condition.

On Capitol Hill, things are progressing as normal, which means they are not progressing at all. And, while there is absolutely nothing that can be done right this minute, please remember this post (an others like it) come election time in the fall.

Ignoring a problem will not make it go away! Nor will attempting to regulate the masses into submission, or as some fear, total surrender save this country we all love so dearly. Let’s clean out the abscess that is Washington just as fast as is legally possible starting in 2012!
