The gun issue is so incendiary and fear of the NRA so great that the ATF plan languished for months at the Justice Department, according to some senior law enforcement officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity but would not provide details.

If I don't need a gun why does anyone else need one?

Noted w/thanks, Carrie. Looks like Sen. Feinstein will introduce a new Assault Weapons Ban after the new Congress is seated. Finally! I have written my members of Congress that I want included in that bill: gun shows banned, a ban on the manufacturing and sale of multiple clips.
I just can't get it through my head how the NRA takes the DoJ hostage over this. I guess Eric Holder needs to start receiving some mail and phone well as Obama, to direct Holder to proceed as if the NRA doesn't exist. Hopefully, by the time American moms & dads and the rest of the general public is through, the NRA will be small enough to drown in a bathtub. Heard they took their Facebook page offline.

thanks Angelika. Watched the video link. NRA doesn't like Obama. Isn't it interesting that we have the secret service watching over Obama so he doesn't end up like Kennedy? Kennedy wasn't killed by a handgun for those too young to remember...he was killed by the very weapons the NRA is pushing.
