I like to think they will not try with such a slim lead. I think if they do pass the ban, they will lose Senate and house. Well that is what I like to believe, but I hope that happens without the ban.Honestly, I don’t think it’s very likely at this time. Red states are already posturing against it. Eight million plus new gun owners. The dem’s house and senate majorities are slim, and I’m sure they remember what happened with Clinton’s gun ban. They saw what happened after the new laws were enacted in VA, CT, and elsewhere and they are aware that there will be massive non-compliance with any new nonsense they enact.
Brother, I hear ya, I'm pretty riled myself;Admittedly, I am riled up. I would feel better if it were already mid-term election year and the Dems were more concerned about their jobs.
Agree. I expect that type of legislation to have good odds of succeeding on the next mass tragedy. This includes mandatory waiting limits, FFL only sales, universal background checks. Up the ladder from there are magazine capacity limits, ammo taxes, removal of litigation protection for manufacturers, etc. The holy grail are outright bans of entire classes of guns such as we know Beta O'Rourke wants.I don't expect that a ban will pass the senate, maybe not even the house.. First they would have to eliminate the filibuster. Without it ten republicans would have to be persuaded to vote in favor. Even without the filibuster just one democrat in a red or purple district would see a vote in favor as a sure threat to his/her re-election.
Now a universal background check, useless as it will be, is a possibility.
I was a young child in 1994. When people tell me there will be know ban, I ask about 1994. People proactive is all know.I remember the last time people weren't worried...until they were. That was in 1994. What a difference a few months made.
Never underestimate the disgusting nature of a Democrat in office, and don't forget they own Congress and the White House right now.
