    Reid, and several other Democratic senators from the Rockies and plains states, aren't likely to be leading the gun-control fight, largely because their constituents aren't leading it.

    Those senators are part of the reason why the R's and NRA's "Obama will ban guns" scare tactics are so absurd.

    Hopefully, though, those Senators (and their counterparts in the House) can be brought around to accept some reasonable middle-ground positions, particularly the proposals that seem to be getting 80-90% public support. And with their help, some of those ideas might even make it through the House.

    (Beyond the mountain west, the same is true of several senators and Congresspeople from other red or purple states, though it's tougher to generalize there.)
