    Not sure if this has been posted yet. I think the gun discussion starts around the 3 or 4 minute mark. Reid says that he will "take a look" at any bill that gets out of the judiciary committee regarding gun control. He also says he will "take a look" at a magazine ban. When he is asked point blank if he would vote for a magazine ban, he skates around the question. Obviously he hasn't come out in opposition to any bill yet, but I doubt he would throw a member of his party under the bus in this type of political climate. I think this is good news for us.

    He does say he supports UBC's though. Other than that, I think this interview is a good sign.

    Universal background checks are not a good thing. Folks don't understand what they are contemplating giving up.

    1. Conspiracy theory or not, I don't want to be on any government computer data system for any reason I don't have to be... It's too easy and only a few keystrokes to being on a list for confiscation.

    2. More significant than that, if I want to transfer my private property to a family member or close friend whom otherwise is not prohibited by law to own it... it's none of the government's business. Unwelcome government intrusion into one's life is never a good thing.

    3. That little Constitution thing about not being infringed seems to be at conflict with this.

    4. Compromise means both sides meet on an issue seek common ground. First, this is a Constitutional issue and the Pro-2nd Amendment side need not give up anything. Second, even if you take the Constitution out of it, what has the anti-group offered to give up - NFA, GCA 1968 regs??? The answer to that is nothing. Law abiding citizens should not loose their Constitutional rights because of the actions of a criminal.

    Today, makes the 3rd time in the last 3 weeks I have emailed all my elected reps about not voting on any new gun legislation.


    The gun show loophole is nothing but anti-gun propaganda. Statistical evidence show that only 1.9% (Senate Hearings) of all guns used in crime come from gun shows, and a significant portion of those are bought through FFLs that are required to do a background.

    I used to support mandatory background checks. The letter circulating from the 62 Colorado sheriffs convinced me that they are not going to be of any use.
