    The ban legislation is for all practical purposes dead.  If any attempt is made to sneak it in the back door, it will undoubtedly be struck down in the Senate.  Then it would have to get past the House.

    As other's have said, the chance to enact any sort of real reform was squandered on this piece of pie in the sky bullshit.

    The continued push for restrictions is not building support.  It is strengthening the opposition and the beginning of the coming backlash is just starting to be felt.  Slate on Friday had a pretty good article on the effects of the push and what it is bringing.

      Diane Feinstein claims she will introduce an amendment when the Senate bill comes up for a vote. You are probably right, but I would still like to see a vote, and some public pressure generated for getting these weapons (and all with magazines over 10 rounds) off the street.
