Many thanks mauserme for your effort. Mostly I sneak a peek at the action as a guest while at work. Off now and reviewing the continuing effort of the Progressives and their anti-American agenda.

Anyone else shocked that Munoz is actually addressing a real problem that they have had with the FOID for a long time? Helping his fellow vets? Shrug. Then again, he could've addressed it by introducing a bill to abolish the FOID. Sent from my VS987 using Tapatalk

Kathleen Willis has a well-earned reputation for misrepresenting things.  A couple of years ago, she told leadership she had the votes to pass a gun control bill and when the vote was called, the bill barely crested 40 of the 60 needed to pass.  That, folks, was a humiliating defeat.

Refresh my memory... With the bill at 2nd reading, can they vote today? Or do they just move it to 3rd reading with a motion then debate/vote? Regardless, I'm aware the Senate would still have to concur with the amendments if it passed the House.
