    ... and 'all or nothing' is a good way to wind up with nothing.

    While I'd prefer a more universal check system, this is a start that can be built on in the future.

    Also, keep in mind that even if the final bill makes it through the Senate, it still has to clear the teabagger House in order to be law.

    So if you want any kind of check, I'd be hoping that DiFi's AWB and magazine size amendments fail because they'd be the 'kiss of death' for the huge majority of Republican (and some Democrats as well) Representatives.
