and now you say "In the previous post your wanted proof...now you don't want it?".......not sure where that came from??? I don't necessarily believe the votes were there just because Liptak said they were.
If you don't trust the NRA maybe you should ask GOA if the votes were there. Were they even at the table? Just send them an email and ask.
If they were at the table did they have any influence?
With the influence GOA has, why didn't they over power the NRA?
If another massacre occurs and bumps stocks are involved, do you think general public opinion will sour enough to allow for a semi auto rifle ban?
