  •  Reid, Guns and the Filibuster (0+ / 0-)

    Maybe this is crazy speculation, but I can't help wondering if Reid won't be secretly happy to see McConnell (his "friend") filibuster meaningful gun legislation (e.g., assault weapons and large ammo clip ban) to get him off the hook with the President on one side and the NRA on the other.  He can then propose some watered-down legislation (perhaps background checks if we're lucky) in a way he can walk the line between the opposing gun lobbies.

    May sound crazy but Reid may be looking for a neutral route so he can be viewed as not opposing gun control legislation while at the same time not losing his NRA bonifides.

    Offered for discussion.
