WASHINGTON — The powerful gun lobby is gauging enough support in Congress to block a law that would ban assault weapons, despite promises from the White House and senior lawmakers to make such a measure a reality.

Senators plan to introduce a bill that would ban assault weapons and limit the size of ammunition magazines, like the one used in the December shooting massacre that killed 27 people, most of them children, in Newtown, Conn. Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California has promised to push for a renewal of expired legislation.

I know this sounds counter-intuitive, but this is not what I want to hear at this point. I do not want people to have any reason to sit back and say whew, I want people to keep up the pressure on their reps. I think that a lot of people are stepping up out of fear of losing a basic right. If we start taking things for granted, we leave ourselves more vulnerable than we are.

Now that I've got my mini rant out of the way, the president may think the same thing, that's why there is talk about executive orders on the issue.
Everytime we look the other way when someone else loses rights we disagree with, we make it easier to lose the rights we support.

Why is this bold part STILL not being disputed by the NRA or anyone else?

Because whenever anyone dares to question the official story they're immediately labeled conspiracy theorists and nut jobs, in many cases by some users here.

Let's hope they're right but continue to keep the pressure on Congress until the NRA's pronouncement becomes a self-fulfillling prophecy!

I'm hoping the NRA is doing some behind the scenes lobbying. I also hope this "current increase in revenue" for certain firearm manufacturers and other companies heavily involved in the industry (see Magpul) will motivate them to contribute to the NRA so the NRA can continue preserving our freedoms so that these companies can still be making money off shmucks like me who keep buying their guns, ammo, and mags.

I completely agree with keeping up the pressure. Actually I think we should push back even harder! I just thought it would be good to post some POTENTIALLY good mews for a change. Keep writing and calling your reps and join the NRA. Never drop our guard on our rights.

Some will see this as a reason to take a breather and let up on the congress critters. Others will see it as motivation and double down on the pressure to congress. I plan on annoying the living crap out of my congressman.
