Senator Reid, is your priority the country’s safety or pleasing the NRA?2

You honestly think it’s in the country’s best interests to NOT include assault and automatic weapons when presenting new gun legislation? Why? I’d love to hear the details. Specific details.
I’d like to know how much you’ve been wined and dined by NRA lobbyists or what you’ve been promised by them after you’re voted out of your senate seat. And if that’s not the case, do tell what precisely caused you to be convinced that including those weapons would doom any gun law legislation.
I can’t imagine what else you could have announced that would harm your credibility more. Is the GOP having no relationship with the truth rubbing off on you?
We need someone to stand up, man up, and tell it like it is without fear of bullying lobbyists and silly Republicans who kiss their credibility goodbye when Palin and “The Donald” get top billing at their big events.
What with gun laws, women’s rights, Perry’s fictional budget and so much more, Democrats have an open high road to shape legislation grounded in the culture of the 21st century. The low road is jammed. I can’t believe you merged onto that highway. Bet your constituents will be equally as unpleasantly surprised.
In all due respect, the founding fathers were talking about muskets.
An AR-15 carbine is probably the best possible weapon you can own for home defense. I wrote about the details on my blog (“Who Needs An Assault Rifle”). Yes, America’s interests are best served by millions of Americans owning semi-automatic rifles with high capacity magazines. The Founders knew why they wrote the 2nd Amendment, and it wasn’t about hunting.
