    So, what's the problem with that? Oh, My God! Blood in the streets! There are more "Assault Weapons" than 1994, but still the amount of crime committed with a "military style semiautomatic rifle" is virtually nil. What is the point of this law?

    I'm not split at all. My policy:
    You vote for this, and I NEVER vote for you again.

    If you do vote for this, please hold your breath while you wait for my vote. I want to see how purple you get before falling down.

    The battle will be won or lost in the House. I predict that this bill will never get out of committee in the House as long as Tom DeLay runs the show. I believe the White House is gambling on this being the outcome to protect its flank.

    I heard it predicted that antis would attempt to manipulate the terms of the debate, and it's started. Instead of the debate being "let it die vs. renew it", it's "renew it as-is or enact a stricter one".
