There has been no dramatic incident to justify its renewal. And Democrats are still smarting over the losses they've taken in states where guns are as familiar in people's lives as religion. That's why they're keeping quiet. There's just no political appeal in pushing ahead with something that will cost you more votes than it will gain you. DiFi and California love gun control but its pretty much a loser in the rest of the country.

I agree that it's a loser for the RATS which is why I hope a few of the hardcore gungrabbers on the left try and make it an issue next year. In 2000, Algore started his campaign calling for mandatory registration and other draconian measures. By the end of the campaign, he was being forced to run ads claiming he was really pro-2nd Amendmant(BS) to try and salvage Pennsylvania and Michigan.
Yeah, the Rats still remember thier butt-kick from the 1994 elections.
