I can't see democrats wanting to take the gun control plunge right now because the country seems volatile right now. With people grumbling for secession just because of Obama's reelection, imagine whatever fallout from the fiscal cliff issue will cause. If they decided to take a shot at the 2nd amendment, that might be the straw that breaks the camels back in a short amount of time. I think the gun control right now is posturing, but that is by no means a reason to kick back the recliner. Irregardless of the gun climate, letters should be sent to elected officials, praising them for their good work, or laying out their shortcomings. I am not happy with a bare majority in the house being our only firmament. Let's take back the senate.
