It’s about time; apparently they seem to be resolving their infighting and actually making progress on this bill.
The inner-party dispute, which has dismayed the leadership, was the subject of a Wall Street Journal article last Friday. And Mr. Leahy appears to have now agreed to allow Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) to take a different approach.
I am still comfortable with this bill. As I mentioned last week, the bulk of the provisions added on by Sen. Leahy revolve around expanding concealed carry for retired cops; which again I think is a good thing.
Now, as long as this bill can survive without having some horrible riders tacked on to it, I believe that it will pass, and be a net gain for us as gun-owners.
