    McConnell's ploy is a pretty standard stunt when negotiating in public.  You can't cherrypick out portions you like of a larger offer you disagree with and say "let's pass this".  Dems will just fire back saying "$450,000 was a concession we were willing to make in a larger deal, what we do agree on is a $250K threshold The $200K difference McConnell is talking about now can be dealt with in sequester negotiations down the line".

    The NRA is the Gun Manufacturer Lobby. Nothing more. Their pontification about the second amendment is nothing more than their ad jingle. They're the domestic version of the Military Industrial Complex.
