Much was made, of course, about how “gun friendly” so many of the new moderate Democrats are. Of course, the new moderate Democrats aren’t the ones running the party. For the most part, it’s the same old Democrats in charge. They’re calling the shots, and in most cases the newly-elected will vote along party lines.
No, I don’t think the AWB will be back this time around. But if the Dems pick up more seats in 2008 and especially if they get the White House you can bet it will be a big issue for them.
Most people probably realize this and see these early efforts as laying the groundwork for the big push in 2009-2010. (via Instapundit)
