Well, those federal red flag ducats are gonna separate the posers from the real deals for "pro-gun" states. I hope my state makes the correct decision.

Any chance some Democrats in the House torpedo it to avoid doing this before the election?

Waiting for someone to propose a White Privilege Gun Tax bill since Blacks are subject to more murders and White privilege can be the ONLY explanation  :O

Washington Post's Max Boot claims 'GOP gun cult' is the 'sickness in U.S. culture'
https://www.foxnews.com/media/washington-posts-max-boot-claims-gop-gun-cult-sickness-u-s-culture

The Washington Post article was blocked by a pay wall so I found this version.  Just an anti-gun article for your amusement. 

Quote
Boot chided the party for blaming everything else but guns for mass shootings, like the one in Uvalde, Texas. "They blame doors, video games, mental illness, "emasculated" men, family breakdown, demons, the lack of prayer in schools, Ritalin, antidepressants, social media, social isolation — anything and everything except the weapons used in these crimes," he stated.
This quote jumps out.  Note he did not mention blaming the shooter.  He also confuses "blame" with "prevention" with that list.

Will any of the 14 GOP Senators who voted ‘yes’ on the bipartisan gun bill really suffer any electoral consequences?

One error IMO.  Cornyn is up for election in November.  He won't be up for a primary election again for a while.

So, Bill Clinton is telling people how to talk to gun owners.

My take
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

there is lots of potential for political or legal manipulation of the system

Had a friend who got a welfare check: they pulled all the weapons out of the house (including a type 38 Arisaka and NCO katana w/intact mums). Police chief tried refusing to return them (took a judge to get them back)

The report may be erroneous:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_DZyxMsapUM

I saw that when when the video came out and it very well could be but he spoke to one guy who may or may not been in a position to know at the time.
But considering how this admin politicizes everything they touch I'm taking  await and see attitude but leading toward it's true until I get firm proof otherwise merely as caution if nothing else.

That would be nice.  They may also try to slip in amendments through the reconciliation process.  I think that would bypass the 60 vote requirement in the Senate.

Signed
Absolutely nothing in the bill that would have had an effect what so ever on the recent shootings.

Does the bill include severability? IANAL, but I remember reading that some bills are written in a way that if one provision is thrown out by a court, the entire bill is voided. Other bills can have some provisions stricken without affecting the rest of the law.

Where does this latest bill fall?
Trump won in 2016. Democrats haven't been so offended since Republicans came along and freed their slaves.

NJ moving ahead with new laws

Quote
Under the seven proposals — many of which Murphy has sought for more than a year — New Jersey would mandate people receive firearm training to obtain a gun permit, ban .50 caliber rifles, require micro-stamping technology, stipulate new residents moving from other states register firearms, regulate handgun ammunition, crack down on ghost guns, and make it easier to sue gun manufacturers and dealers over gun crimes in the state.

I have long maintained that we need a constitutional amendment prohibiting any amendments to proposed legislation that are not directly related to the subject of the legislation.
