    For years Democrats have complained against the Gun Show loophole.  the T-M version closes it.

    If Democrats fail to get a win on Gun safety, the NRA will have a major victory that will discourage Democrats from non-solid Blue areas from ever supporting future reforms.

    Gun safety advocates may way to strengthen the Background check by having the Federal government prosecute those who submit fraudulent info for their background check.  As Republicans have raised this as a failing of current checks, put this in because it will be difficult for them to oppose.

    The NRA will never support any reform, as if they agreed to any reform, they expect reformers to advocate something much stronger.

    The most important way to protect the environment is not to have more than one child.
