    ..was just reading this from NYT - By JENNIFER STEINHAUER and JONATHAN WEISMAN Published: April 9, 2013  

    Several Senate Republicans said Tuesday that they would not participate in a filibuster of the first major gun control bill since 1993, as Democrats appeared on the verge of overcoming a blockade threatened by a group of conservatives before a word of debate on the measure was uttered.
    Also: David Corn @ Mother Jones busts open Mitch McConnell's vicious scheme to bully/harass Ashley Judd. Wonder if that contributed to his backing off out of the glare.

     I hope whatever gun safety measure do come of this are serious and not weakened though. But it is good to see that pressure seems to have thwarted the republicans on this - for now anyway

    Thx jamess
