Udall and Bennet Feeling the Heat?

Colorado Sen. Bennet has come out in favor of some of the less extreme gun bans,and Udall has always been a loyal water boy for the prez, but the mail seems to be piling up:
WASHINGTON — A Democratic push to ban roughly 150 types of assault-style weapons Thursday has placed Colorado Sens. Michael Bennet and Mark Udall in a tough spot.
Neither Democrat has committed to supporting the legislation carried by their Senate colleague Dianne Feinstein of California, saying Thursday they want to study the proposal to make sure it aligned with Colorado values.
Feinsteins bill is extreme enough that the Dems don't have 50 votes for it in the Senate. Still, that they have 40-odd should remind us that the fight is tough and will not be easily won. Keep those cards and letters coming, and don't forget your local reps either. Some of them think they can fix what they perceive as trivial problems by passing sweeping legislation that endangers us all.

There are some good ones coming up that deserve support. They will go nowhere without it.One allows teachers with a CCW to carry on campus. It only takes 5 minutes and at that rate you should be able to get in two a week.
