    Has anyone heard about Bush's stance on HR1022? I know thathe said he would sign a reauthorization of the Clinton ban, but this is a different beast. Would he veto it if it hit his desk? Would the Demoncrats have the votes to override?

    I know that it's a long way from there, but I was just wondering.

    When AWB Part 1 was up for renewal, he said he would sign it if Congress sent it to him.

    Lucky for us, they didn't.

    We have to stop it before that point. The President listens the lest amount of any Politician because we don't actually elect him.

    True, you can never fully trust a politician, but I think his statement on the Clinton AWB was more a re-election stunt than a firm statement on the AWB itself.

    At the time he said that, he was up for re-election. Also, both sides of Congress were Republican controlled. To me it was him saying, sure I will sign it, when pigs fly.

    The situation now is much different. Frankly, the only way I think he would sign this one is if it will get Dems to drop the withdrawal talk about Iraq (or something equally important to Bush). Since guns have been shown to be a 3rd rail for Dems recently and their base really wants the war to end, I think such a trade would be highly unlikely.
