    Follow the thread over at Ar15.

    People are getting the word out, and getting letters ready to send to their Reps.

    I would call/E but I have one of the worst -IMO- Congressmen there.
    He is anti gun with the same BS that he supports hunters. I have
    contacted him FTF/E's and always same BS. He avoids me at all meetings.

    Proper procedure may not have been followed. However, it passed both houses and was signed by the president. Failure to follow House or Senate rules cannot nullify a law.

    The Hughes amendment has held up in court time after time. There are people in prison because of it.

    Yep. This kind of thing has happened many, many times.

    It was passed and signed by everyone's favorite president here, Ronald Reagan. Thumbs up for signing a stupid law heralded by the likes of William Hughes and Charlie Rangel, Ronnie.

    Rangel has been, and always will be, a stupid POS. Now he is known to be a stupid, CRIMINAL POS. It takes an awful lot for Congress to charge a member of ethics violations, let alone multiple violations. He should be jailed and all his cronies in this little incident should be right with him.

    That video shows his complete lack of knowledge. How did he ever get a gavel in his hands?????

    His constituents are absolute morons, that's how.

    What's more amazing to me is that we as a country allow people, by law, to stay in office after they've been proven by trial to be liars.

    It has only stood up in criminal cases, where the matter to be decided is whether the accused violated the law not whether the law is good or bad. It has not had significant challenge in civil cases.

    It has also been ruled invalid by at least two US District Courts.
    United States v. Rock Island Armory (1991)
    Unites States v. Bownds (1994)
    Unites States v. Dalton (1992)

    The Supreme Court has never tried to resolve these contradictions.
