As of Wednesday 10/18

The mass media-driven Congressional gun control juggernaut seems to be slowing. It is noteworthy that the horribly vague and unconstitutional H.R. 3999 appears to now be stuck at just 25 co-sponsors—but it is frightening to see that 12 of them are Republicans. Hopefully the bill will die in committee.

Please keep up the pressure, folks. This fight is far from over! Please contact your Congressional Representative repeatedly (by phone and e-mail) and insist that he or she oppose ALL civilian disarmament legislation.

There are now a half dozen bills pending in Congress. SurvivalBlog reader Kevin A. sent me this summary list:

H.R. 3999: To prohibit parts that increase the rate of fire of semiautomatic weapons (25 co-sponsors)
S. 1916: To prohibit possession/transfer of certain firearms/accessories (38 co-sponsors)
H.R. 3947: To prohibit possession/transfer of certain firearms/accessories (173 co-sponsors)
H.R. 3962: To require face-to-face purchase of ammunition, reporting of bulk ammo purchases (29 co-sponsors)
H.R. 4025: To require reporting sale of 2 or more handguns (3 co-sponsors)
H.R. 4052: To prohibit transfer/possession of large capacity ammunition feeding devices (85 co-sponsors)

-copied from you can link to the different bills there.

Edit to add this

and this

All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible.
