Thankfully this bill is an urban legend and the email has been circulating since 2000. There is no bill like that before the senate at this time.

Reed introduced this bill in Feb of 2000, but to my knowledge it was never voted on.

I agree that we need to be vigilant. Someone could resurrect this bill, or new worse ones could surface.

We can't know what is going on in DC all the time, but the NRA does.

They are offerering a free trial membership. Everyone should join if they are not already a member.

I stay on top of what's going on in DC via the NRA web sites and their emailed newsletters.

We've said it many times here, if you value your firearms - you SHOULD be an NRA member.
