    Per the number crunching over at Sebastian’s: The “reciprocity amendment” to the AWB attempt last year was 57-43 in favor, Which includes a chunk of Dems. That’s only 3 votes from 60 and filibuster-proof.

    Sure there was politicking by Reid, but the Dems who voted “yea” are some of the ones with seats at risk this year.

    If we pick up 6-10 addl pro-gun GOP Senators, and thus the majority and ability to get the bill to the floor, we are actually close to a veto-proof passage.

    The two actual bills in the Senate last session got a bipartisan 39 total sponsors, which is a pretty big chunk out of the gate.

    Anyway, if the Repubs hold/gain in the House and take the Senate this bill is realistically in play.

    Still, the fact that this is being voted upon is progress indeed.

    Dies it even matter now? Legal gun owners can be the subjects of S.W.A.T. style raids for nothing more than “legally” owning guns, and the Supreme Court is fine with that…

    I don’t want any Federal law re: carring of arms EXCEPT that it simply says pursuant to the 14th Amendment that all enumerated rights, including the right to keep AND CARRY the means to self-defense, are protected and may not be violated or infringed in every State.

    Maybe not. Still you got to wonder, with all the new people being added to the CCW fold both in state law, and in actual numbers, things are changing and I would be surprised if our representatives didn’t notice that.

    BTW my wife just renewed her permit and she had to wait in LINE to see the officer. That has NEVER happened to me.
