Activists are putting pressure on the feds to re-instate the assault weapons ban. Interestingly, this article states that Pelosi and Reid are opposed to the gun ban. In fact, its believed that a large number of dems are opposed. Obama however, still supports the ban.
"Democrats have finally gotten it," said Larry Sabato, director of the University of Virginia's Center for Politics. "The message they've gotten is if they become gun-control advocates, they are going to suffer at the polls."
I hope the above statement is true.
