National Journal: Congress: Rebecca Kaplan: Senator Leahy Will Wield His Gavel on Gun Control, Immigration Reform

Leahy Will Wield His Gavel on Gun Control, Immigration Reform - NationalJournal.com

Senator Pat Leahy Chairman of the Judiciary Committee is smart to push for new gun regulations that stop short of an assault weapons ban. Because an AWB most likely wouldn't pass this Congress, House Republicans rather lose their majority then pass that. And I believe Senate Democrats know this but working with Senate Republicans, in particular Senator Grassley the Ranking Member of the Judiciary Committee in that committee are the Democrats best shot at getting a gun control bill passed in this Congress.
