    I am very hopeful and optimistic that it will sunset and the new bill will never reach the floor.

    It will if you all do your part, and encourage others to do so as well!
  3. I hope so...

    but politicians won't allow it

    The AWB will sunset, to my knowledge the way it was written,
    it is legally bound to sunset.

    However, an appeal may be filed, which can take anywhere from
    a few months to???

    Therefore, mfg's/distbs/dealers can (probable) distribute/sell their
    products (even during appeal) after the bell tolls on the sunset.

    I hope and pray that the AWB will sunset but I have a bad feeling about it. My bad feeling(s) stem from the belief that Bush & Co. has left us high and dry to fend for ourselves. If he wants to have a chance at re-election he should watch who he puts the screws to.

    Considering how sneaky many politicians are it would not surprise me if a new AWB was slid "under the radar" and attached as a rider on another piece of legislation that on the surface appears harmless. Example;look at the "Patriot Act". It was jammed through quickly, and quite a few legislators DID NOT have an opportunity to read the bill.
    In fact, a publication (Insight on the news)printed an interview with a legislator from Texas (9 Nov 2001)about what took place.

    I seriously doubt that this was the first time something like this happened. I would not put it past liberal politicians and anti-gun organizations to try this maneuver with another AWB.

    The entire interview can be found here.

    I know that this interview doesn't concern the AWB. My intent was to show that other bills could be pushed through ,especially ones that aren't popular.
