    The text of the bill wasn't available when I looked this morning, but the title struck me. IIRC, the appropriation riders were the things that prohibited using funds to create a registry of firearms.

    HR 1728 - To repeal certain appropriations riders that limit the ability of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives to administer the Federal firearms laws.

    That doesn't sound good... sounds like they are trying to slip one past us unnoticed.

    So far it's been introduced by our old *pal* Charlie Rangel, and referred to committee.
    (where it will hopefully die a quiet death with no recognition)
    To repeal certain appropriations riders that limit the ability of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives to administer the Federal firearms laws. (H.R. 1728) - GovTrack.us

    I would like to know what those appropriation riders are though.
    We could have a national holiday for the day each one was added to the bills/budgets that passed!
