Still no text--but a co-sponsor

I have already written about Senator Lautenberg's S. 1237, "a bill to increase public safety by permitting the Attorney General to deny the transfer of firearms or the issuance of firearms and explosives licenses to known or suspected dangerous terrorists." Although the text of the bill is still unavailable for public viewing, Lautenberg has already found a willing co-sponsor.

I wonder if Ted would co-sponsor "a bill to increase public safety by permitting the Attorney General to deny the transfer of automobiles or the issuance of drivers' licenses to known or suspected dangerous, drunken lechers."

Probably not. That's too bad--such a law would have a greater chance of saving lives than Lautenberg's bill.

Gee, what a surprise that the Hero of Chappaquiddick is so eager to support gun control bills that he signs on as a sponsor before he can even read them.

Thanks, Opaww. You're right, I saw Friday that the text was made available, but I neglected to post an update.

Starting to accumulate cosponsors, as well. This one bears watching.
