Because terrorism is very loosely defined, because that gives them legal grounds to deny due process, because they suck.Why is a definition of terrorism included in the section titled "engaged in the business" in a document that gives a metric ****-ton of money to the same government entity that called parents who question school boards domestic terrorists?

I didn't think I was reading this wrong. There's more stuff that is already illegal in there. I guess it will be illegaler now.Because terrorism is very loosely defined, because that gives them legal grounds to deny due process, because they're pieces of ****.
If they push this through this week, it's just because they don't want to give proper time to analyze the outcomes.
Yes, and it'll be extra efficient when the ATF blatantly neglects their own policy. We should all applaud this stunning and brave display by these legislators.I didn't think I was reading this wrong. There's more stuff that is already illegal in there. I guess it will be illegaler now.

I'll hopefully have a draft of an "uncanned" email to go to our senior Senator tonight. Last PM it was hard enough reading all that ****.I just finished an original email to Todd Young stating my displeasure with his support for this bill. I sent three other canned letters yesterday (NRA, GOA, FPC). Words can't explain how much this angers me. I had a hard time not coming unglued. I kept it professional - but I left no doubt on where I stand. I feel completely betrayed.
I don’t do the ‘write your congressman’ thing well, but thank you for the encouragement to do so.Indiana State Rifle and Pistol Association put out a call to action last evening.
I've already e-mailed this morning and will be calling the Indy and D.C. offices after 0900.
He took an oath to uphold the Constitution. That overrides a spread sheet of for and against handed to him by a staffer. If Young doesn't understand that, then he is lost and must go.
I wonder if the 10 : 1 number is due to a well organized Demanding Mommies Op?
Holy shoot - they might be voting on it in an hour! WTF!?I wonder if the 10 : 1 number is due to a well organized Demanding Mommies Op?
Thank you @rebase
On the radio this morning they said Young did not read the bill before voting because there was not enough time between presentation and the vote. (Well then don't vote for it).Holy shoot - they might be voting on it in an hour! WTF!?
