Discharge Petition

NRA is twisting arms to get DC’s firearms laws fixed.  What’s going on here is that leadership in Congress does not want to force their colleagues to take a stand on gun control in an election year, because, let’s be honest, a lot of Democrats are anti-gun, and think DC’s revised laws are just fine.  But who wants to come out against the Bill of Rights in an election year?  Even Obama has run like hell from his previous position on DC’s ban.

Democrats have a chance to retreat here, and I’m glad that NRA is twisting blue dog arms.  They have to take a leadership position on this issue within their party.

    I have to wonder if this will show just how small the anti-civil rights gun-control minority actually is.

    A chance to retreat and Democrats aren’t wholeheartedly embracing it and their own defeat??
