Quickie- Republicans vote to allow unmonitored multiple semi-automatic weapon sales


I read and hear this crap every day, but sometimes something like this just slaps me in the face with the sewage that is out there masquerading as "lawmaking". Who in their right mind think it's a good thing to let someone buy ten, twenty semi-automatics at a pop?

>House Republicanson Wednesday voted to strip funding for a new Obama administration policy that increases reporting requirements for some gun dealers who sell semi-automatic rifles.

The rule from the Department of Justice (DOJ) requires dealers to report within five days multiple sales to the same person of semi-automatic rifles with removable magazines.

Rep. Denny Rehberg (R-Mont.) sponsored the amendment to the fiscal year 2012 Commerce, Justice, Science and Related Agencies appropriations bill that would nix funding for the rule.

"For more than a decade, efforts to track rifle purchases and create a national gun registry have failed to gain support in Congress, so the ATF is working to implement these regulations using rules written by unelected bureaucrats," Rehberg said. "I’m going to keep this government accountable to the people."
