    answer than your snotty comment deserves.

    The leader of the senate is pro gun - you really think he wants this hanging around.

    Bob Casey is another

    Casey opposes gun-control laws, including the 10-year ban on 19 types of assault weapons that expired in 2004. He vowed to aggressively court sportsmen’s support by emphasizing his character, his long support for gun owners’ rights and his record in state government. “I’ve been a strong supporter of the second amendment, the right to bear arms. That’s evidenced not just by what I’ve said but the support I’ve gotten over the last decade from sportsmen’s groups, including the NRA,” Casey said.
    Note praise for NRA

    Oh and Jim Webb:

    The Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution states in pertinent part that “…the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed.”  I am a gun owner, a sportsman, and a long-time member of the National Rifle Association.  As a United States Senator, I take seriously my role in protecting the fundamental right of U.S. citizens to bear arms.
    from his own website - see the bit about long time member of the NRA?

    just let me know if you want me to carry on.
