Cyber bill has gun control amendment

Incoming Speaker of the House, Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio), has tapped Rep. Mac Thornberry (R-Texas) to lead a cybersecurity initiative in the next Congress.
Boehner, who will become Speaker of the House when the new Congress is sworn in next month, said that Thornberry, who will become vice chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, will “lead an initiative on cybersecurity that cuts across committee lines.”
Thornberry said the cybersecurity initiative “will focus Congress’s efforts to combat the growing national security and economic threat. Cybersecurity is an issue of increasing importance in the wake of a number of high-profile breeches of both public and private cyber networks.”
Cybersecurity issues in the House have been plagued by committee jurisdictional disputes between the Oversight and Government Reform Committee, the Homeland Security Committee, the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, and the Armed Services Committee.
Thornberry told the Times Record News that “there’s lots of different committees that have a piece of cybersecurity, and that’s part of the problem that Congress has dealing with the issue.” In addition to being vice chairman of the Armed Services Committee, Thornberry is a high ranking Republican on the House intelligence panel. more
Next week the Senate is expected to debate and vote on amendments to theCybersecurity bill.
Democratic senators included an amendment in the cybersecurity bill that would limit the purchase of high capacity gun magazines for some consumers.

Shortly after the Cybersecurity Act gained Senate approval to proceed to amendments and a vote next week, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), a sponsor of the gun control amendment, came to the floor to defend the idea of implementing some “reasonable”  <<gun control measures.
Pending Magazine Ban Legislation in the U.S.
Monday, Jan 17, 2011
Just as I anticipated, in the wake of the Tucson shootings, the mainstream media and the congresscritters are on the war path! Mayor Bloomberg has the propaganda machine running overdrive with this week’s Bloomberg Businessweek cover story.  The cover of the Jan. 17, 2011 issue of Bloomberg Businessweek is midnight black with nothing but a Glock 19 pictured and the words “The Killing Machine” in white boldly superimposed over the gun.  The article summary states “America’s Gun – How Glock became the weapon of choice for U.S. cops, gun enthusiasts, and mass killers/psychopaths like alleged Tucson gunman Jared Loughner.”
The amendment was sponsored by Democratic Sens. Frank Lautenberg (N.J.), Barbara Boxer (Calif.), Jack Reed (R.I.), Bob Menendez (N.J.), Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.), Schumer and Dianne Feinstein (Calif.). S.A. 2575 would make it illegal to transfer or possess large capacity feeding devices such as gun magazines, belts, feed stripes and drums of more than 10 rounds of ammunition with the exception of .22 caliber rim fire ammunition.
The amendment would only affect sales and transfers after the law took effect.
Schumer defended the Brady law and assault weapons ban on the floor Thursday evening, perhaps in preparation for the coming fight for Republicans and gun rights activists.
Schumer suggested that both the left and right find common ground.
“Maybe we could come together on guns if each side gave some,” Schumer said. more
