Gun Stuff

Ever the optimists, the house Republicans have introduced a constitutional carry bill. There's a petition to sign to show support which will be submitted when the bill gets assigned to a committee.

Since the Senate is still under the control of the Dems, and the Governor is a member of Bloombergs anti-gun club, this has little or no chance of passing.

The way political maneuvering works, this could well pass the house, forcing the Dems there to go on record with a position which will be used against them in '12. In the Senate, while the Dems don't like guns, they also don't want to be seen opposing them, so the bill will be assigned to the Veterans Affairs committee where it will never see the light of day, and the Dems will be able to avoid actually having to vote on it.

Still, you gotta keep the heat on.
