If it would have been a "clean" bill, I probably would have been in favor of it, despite possible weaknesses. I hope more good information comes out on this. Right now, I'm on the fence and haven't contacted my congressmen about it.

    What do people here think about the additions to this bill? Are they good? bad? indifferent?
    Most of what I have read says that 4477 is not adding anything new just requiring and adding incentives for better report of prohibited people/offenses to NICS.

    My big concern and the concern of many of the people who are against 4477, is that most of it is focused on the reporting by government agencies and not courts or legal entities. This opens things up for more abuse when more have the authority to report, just look at VA reporting of veterans.

    This is what the NRA is saying about the addition of 4477: https://www.nraila.org/articles/2017...ng-in-congress

    Here is an interesting article about the NRA’s support of HR4477 and why not to trust it.

    Interesting. The NRA threatens folks in Congress for daring to vote against infringements on the RKBA.

    From the article:
    Under a Democrat-controlled DOJ, state agencies will be pressured to add not only known criminals, but also those with disabilities that even the ACLU was concerned about.
    It would seem this author sees laws enforced depending on "who" or which party controls the AG position?


    In other words "Let's write laws and enforce them when it is politically expedient to do so" or drive the "agenda of the day"

    So; AG Sessions will look the other way if this becomes law; a democrat won't? Yeesh!
