McCain on Gun Rights

Bitter points to an interview in Field and Stream where McCain talks about his positions on guns.  He’s still supporting regulating private transfers, but he’s definitely mellowed on the issue a lot since 2002-2003 timeframe.  The real fear is that a Democrat congress will send McCain a private sale bill and force him into a position where he either has to flip-flop, or piss us off.  Either way, the Democrats win.

I’m actually surprised the Republicans in Pennsylvania didn’t try that with Ed Rendell more in his first term, when they controlled both the Senate and General Assembly.

    Would the best way to handle private sales be to open the NICS to private calls (call and give Driver Lic. info) with the Incentive for the seller being a liability shield???
