    The fact that it's possible, given the gutless wimps populating that dumpster fire of a party, is worrisome enough.

    There is always a slight possibility... however... these guys are already up for re-election in less than 2 years.. and with a populace that is less happy with government than ever, they best know that more big nanny government is not going to be looked at kindly, no matter their party affiliation... I doubt seriously that any wishy-washy legislation goes thru

    that's pretty much my thought, too...


    if and when the bill to ban assault weapons hits the House, it'll be very interesting to see on which side of the issue the various so-called "conservatives" fall...

    I hope you'll be wearing your raincoat in there with all that dumping, spitting and flushing go on around you.

    The Sandy Hook massacre of twenty children will motivate Republicans as well as Democrats and will insulate them against the usual negative reaction. Right now, with few exceptions, the U.S. population is in a state of hysterical frustration and is receptive to anti-gun rhetoric.
