Do You LIve Near DC?

Another meeting is being held on the 14th.  We previously passed on the information that the Department of Labor is having a meeting with possibly serious consequences for our 401k plans.  A friend passed on information about another important meeting, the Department of Justice “Firearms in Commerce: Assessing the Need for Reform in the Federal Regulatory Process” is also going on next week. 

I know I'm not alone in thinking the most important thing they could do in terms of regulation reform is to de-fund the BATFE, send all the jackboots home, and level the building.  I also think the chances of that are "between Slim and None, and Slim left town", as Michael Bane says. 

Are you near DC?  It's too far for me to make it there.  They need a few hundred R2KBA representatives there.  Polite, pleasant, but letting the Feds know where they stand. I hope the GOA, NRA and JPFO are all there (I'm a member of all of them).  A nice starting place would be getting rid of the stupid laws that say an 18.1" shotgun barrel is fine, but a 17.9" barrel is evil incarnate.  Laws that say a sound suppressor, which costs $5 to make is a "deadly weapon" and needs a $200 tax. Commonsense things.  Common sense out of Washington?  Expect the opposite.
