Born Losers

Looks like the crappy gun laws on the federal level are being delayed.

The Senate Judiciary Committee postponed a markup for new gun control legislation for one week, delaying action on a controversial proposal to ban assault weapons.

The postponement also allows more time for bipartisan negotiations between Sens. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) to reach a deal to expand background checks for all gun purchases. Those talks have stalled over Coburn’s objections to permanent record keeping of gun purchases becoming a part of background checks.

Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) announced at the beginning of Thursday’s session that consideration of four gun-related bills, including an assault weapons ban offered by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), would be rescheduled for next week.

Good! The more time for debate and discussion the better. The antis want to work on a knee-jerk reaction, and like Obamacare, they want to pass the laws before anybody knows what the laws contain.

    It puts the lie to it. If the only way a piece of legislation can get passed is in a rush and the dead of night you know it is crap. Only indefensible laws are done in such a manner. Tell Feinstein if her legislation is so great she should table it until 2014 and it will sail through then (ahem). Actually, I’m glad it is still on the table before the mid-term elections so that we know who to remove from office.
