    Would a nice moderator add the word "COST" to the title.

    Govtrack gives it a 1% chance of making through committee and 0% of being enacted. Authored by an Illionois Rep. There's a surprise.

    I doubt it will gain any traction, but it is a good reminder to us all to let the people we put in place to represent us how we feel.

    Not true. Take this scenario for instance:

    Say there's a flood. Say that the waters rise to 25'. If I had a pile of guns I could stack into a 25' tall hill, I'd survive. If not, I'd drown. So there you go. I need a pile of guns at least 25' high.
