Obama Gun Control Likely To Be Broken Into Pieces By Senate

WASHINGTON -- In the clearest sign that Democrats are worried about the viability of President Barack Obama's comprehensive gun control package, leading lawmakers signaled on Monday that they will consider the president's gun control agenda in pieces rather than as a whole.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) said his committee will take up four gun-related bills in a hearing on Thursday. The bills reflect the core components of the gun violence package proposed last month by the White House. They include a universal background checks bill sponsored by Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), a school safety bill sponsored by Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.), a new gun trafficking statute sponsored by Leahy, and an assault weapons ban sponsored by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.).

Interesting, but they're not breaking up Feinstien's bill to see which bits they want to pass and which to nix?

I don't think this is necessarily a good thing. When it was all or nothing, we stood a better chance of nothing getting through. Being broken up we might be more likely to see certian parts of it pass.

THAT is exactly why they are breaking up.

It disgusts me even more that the lapdog "R's" will vote for these "D" bills.

Doesn't matter how small the straws are... eventually, the camel's back still breaks. Worse still, the potential for total failure from any individual straw increases dramatically towards the end.

Look at our "cousin nations"... whittle, whittle, whittle and then CHOP!
