    Why would his death have any bearing on that?

    Beyond that, there will always be others like him. The vigil never ends.

    I doubt it will have any effect. I am curious as to what parts should be changed, those charged for domestic violence being a felony, or from the standpoint that Soldiers should be exempted.

    Could we at least let the poor man get eulogized and interred before we attack his legacy?

    Really bad karma to speak about the dead and their work before they are even cold. Bad Karma for sure.

    At least remain civil and don't slip into juvenile or low road behavior.

    That's how we here refer to him...........Lautenmummy.
    Maybe if you had to live with our gun laws like we do here in NJ.....you might just feel the same way.

    Don't care a whit about Karma. I do care about those who have had their rights stolen by this maroon. It's as good a time as any to remind people just the 'legacy' this guy left, and overturn as much of it as possible.

    bad karma? What is that? Some kind of psudo intellectual philosophy thing? I'm going to go out on a whim and say you probably celebrated too when Osama Bin Ladin got killed, is it bad "karma" to talk about the "dead" that way? Course I'm not saying the deceased late senator is OBL, but the point is, if someone spend years stripping a state of its liberty then you are in the right to discuss their legacy even right after his death.

    The practical effect of Lautenberg's passing is that Gov. Chris Christie gets to appoint a temporary replacement (presumably a Rebublican) to serve until a special election is held in November. New Jersey being what it is, most likely a Democrat will be elected in November as the permanent replacement. But that person would have to run again in November 2014 for the full term. None of this would have much effect on the overall control of the Senate.

    At least Lautenberg's passing removes a "poster boy" for gun control.

    .

    It seems that the last time someone took the Lautenberg amendment to court was awhile ago.


    Is anyone attempting to overturn this in court currently?

    I was wondering about this. Will there be a special election or will the named senator serve out the remainder of Lautenberg's term?

    I think that Christie will more likely appoint an anti-gun RINO like himself.

    I had thought that all of his evil works would be undone with his passing, but I just remembered that this was for Feinstein. ;)

    Whether or not the person a given law is named after is alive has nothing to do with whether or not the law is legitimate.

    I will also remind everyone of what I have been saying for months. Yes, while there will always be people wanting to ban, for many years there has been a small core of banners. These are the ones whose anti-gun agenda is at or near the top of their reasons for existing, and will introduce anti-gun legislation at the beginning of every session, regardless of current events. They are the ones who were actually happy when Sandy Hook happened, because they knew it was the trigger event they had been waiting for to make the administration act, where it had not for the first term. Lautenberg, Biden, Boxer, McCarthy, and Feinstein are the main members of this core. They are all old, they know they will die or retire soon, and won't get another chance. This is why they pushed so hard in this most recent crisis. They realized that having an anti president and both houses doesn't mean they will get what they want. They need it to happen NOW, because it was their last chance.

    Yes, there will always be lawmakers WILLING to ban guns, but it remains to be seen if there will be any new blood willing to make it their main focus.

    One down, a few more to go.

    Nobody was suggesting anything like that--the OP was asking whether anybody would try to overturn the law now that Lautenberg is no longer there to defend it himself, and I was making a tongue-in-cheek reference to fantasy involving witchcraft. ;)

    There will be others to take their place--the fight to preserve our rights will never end as long as there are people and civilization.

    And....I never said there wouldn't be. I said that it remains to be see if new blood will arise who make it their main focus as these do.
