    The problem with any 2A discussion is directly related to the 2 party system. Many (most?) people assume Democrat=gun control and Republican=no gun control. The truth is Republicans=government intervention and control of our lives and Democrat=MORE government intervention and control of our lives.

    Our rights will never be safe with any of the current politicians in power.

Anyone who speaks out loudly could possibly be placed on this list. After all Tea Party members have been called terrorists.

    This bill if passed and it sounds like it will, ushers in a true gustopo element to the national government. Nothing has to be presented, just take them to the camps.

    Exactly. And who ends up on the bill? I think most of us can see where this might end up going. Did I say might? Probably.
