Rumor Mills

Went to a local gun show w/ the wife on Saturday in partial celebration of Valentines Day/Anniversary. When I got there, the whole place was abuzz w/ the 'news' that a rider had been attached to the stimulus bill mandating licensing and registration. Supposedly it was "all over the news".

So I started talking to people about it. I narrowed it down to one guy who was talking about the stimulus bill passing and HR 45. Apparently the conversations got combined in a classic case of telephone.

As 45Superman remarked, "as if we don't have enough REAL problems--people have to invent stuff."

Update: Uncle pointed me towards a GOA release that may have been a original source.
