Too Cynical

Rob Bishop (R-UT) has introduced HR 2710.

It's about removing ATF's discretion over the meaning of sporting purposes, which has apparently never been defined by law.

I think I have officially been paying attention to politics too long.

All I can think is, "this is just to score some NRA A-rating cred for 2016 because it's sure to be vetoed, assuming the Senate passes it too."

Representative Bishop could be a staunch, constant, and unwavering supporter of gun rights for all I know, I've never looked into him.  But there's doubtlessly going to be support for this bill that's going to be given because they expect it to die in committee in the Senate or be vetoed.
