WASHINGTON — Supporters of President Barack Obama's gun-control proposals are planning a methodical, state-by-state campaign to try to persuade key lawmakers that it's in their political interest to back his sweeping effort to crack down on firearms and ammunition sales and expand criminal background checks.

To succeed will require overturning two decades of conventional wisdom that gun control is bad politics.

The National Rifle Association is confident that argument won't sell. But with polls showing majorities supporting new gun laws a month after the Connecticut shooting deaths of 20 schoolchildren and six adults, gun-control activists say the political calculus has changed. Their goal in coming weeks is to convince lawmakers of that, too, and to counter the NRA's proven ability to mobilize voters against any proposals limiting access to guns.

The gun-control advocates are focused first on the Senate, which is expected to act before the House on Obama's gun proposals. How Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., proceeds will depend in part on what he hears from a handful of Democrats in more conservative states where voters favor gun rights. These include some who are eyeing re-election fights in 2014, such as Mark Pryor of Arkansas, Mark Begich of Alaska and Max Baucus of Montana.

They missed their best chance by waiting. Instead of taking advantage of gun owners being scattered and scrambling for a plan, they waited and gave us time to get organizing and contacting elected officials. The absolute fury over Sandy Hook is gone and so is the hardcore enthusiasm from the half ass supporters and a great deal of the fence sitters. I have a feeling Monday is going to be more cause for anger at Obama. God only knows how much money he's going to blow on his inauguration this time. His multi million dollar Hawaiian vacation isn't sitting well with the folks who saw their take home pay shrink.

As warpt said before, they had their chance and blew it. This kinda crap would have flown a week or so after the sandy hook shooting, but they waited. Does that mean it'll be easy for us? Nope. BUT, I'd like to think that the BS Obama will spew might just cause even more people to join the NRA

There's only going to be one side portrayed in OPravda.
There lies the biggest problem.
The misinformation center is tough to crack.

My opinion:

An AWB is a very, very, very slim possibility.

A 10rd mag limit is unlikely, but still very possible.

Universal NICs (or "enhanced") for all gun sales is a nearly foregone conclusion, and IMO....a long overdue law.

I can't really argue with Universal NICs. I would hope the same would appy to voter registration.

If the Republicans are smart thats what they'll do.

A gun rack in a pick-up is not for holding guns. Its a place for women to hold on to. Smile

I would agree to apply it to voter registration as well.
