    I wish it was.
    The Democrats all knew gun control measures wouldn't pass a 60 vote threshold.
    That's why Harry, Diane Feinstein, Carl Levin - to name a few - do indeed have blood on their hands just as much as the NRA.
    Just last night I received an email from Feinstein justifying her opposition to the "Talking" filibuster.
    She knew her bill banning the sales of assault rifles wouldn't fly.
    So does Harry - that's why he's suddenly for it - he knows it won't pass.
    And it won't pass because he won't spearhead real change to the filibuster.
    That's not a grey area - that's very clearcut and simple.
