    we have reached the point where the bill is so watered down that it will do more harm than good in the long term.

    Wish I could say that I never saw it coming.

      I'm pretty sure we all called this from the onset. There was no way Republicans Senators were going to get behind gun laws unless:

       a) there was something in it for them or

      b) they made it appear as if they were acting on behalf of constituents only later to be able to throw up their hands and sigh in bewilderment over what could have ever happened to overturn that daRned bill.

      Strange but not a stranger.
