These things sure don't take long!

Looks like the anti-gun lobby is starting to rally now that Obama is in power.  There's already a new bill that's been introduced, and this one is a whopper.  It's completely unconstitutional, and not just that, it's irrational.  When will the gun lobby learn that how many bullets a gun holds has almost zero relationship to violent crime?  *sigh*  See some commentary on the bill here.  

This is amazing stuff, and it's one step closer to a national ID card.  Biometric information?  Really???  That's right, this is a huge step in that direction.  Is the US really ready to spend hundreds of millions of dollars (NOW?) on setting up controls like this?  Can someone please tell me what we would be getting for our money?  Other than a huge step towards a completely unhealthy level of government control?
