  •  I have the same worry (10+ / 0-)

    I think in this case, when the bills come up, they need to separated out.  Allow a vote on each bill (background checks, gun loophole, etc) individually.  The AWB may be a deal breaker for too many to allow the other, far more popular, bills to be passed.  

    So, no omnibus gun bill, but rather a series of bills.

      Don't tell me what you believe, show me what you do and I will tell you what you believe.

    •  EV - I agree (4+ / 0-)

      more progress will be made with separate votes on elements of gun control.

      I mean, actually get an agenda and put it over. just to show the world they can do it. I understand what everybody's saying here about electability but for once, just once, I'd like to see the party get together, come to agreement on something, put a plan together, task our leaders with following it through and then follow up on them untill they do. I mean instead of throwing it out there and trying to be satisfied with the the mess Congresss leaves it.

      (pause to wait for you to stop laughing)

      (another pause while you explain how it can never happen legislatively)

      Yes, I know it seems really far fetched and impossible but its the kind of thing that if we worked on, it could just possibly happen. I'm a Democratic gun owner. i just want to see if they can do it.
      Once upon a time, there were people who would actually take a stand on things besides the NRA.. No fooling!!
      I think the Democrats ought to at least try it because they may gain more from people respecting them for what they believe than from showing everybody how ineffectual they are.
      I could be wrong and I'm certainly not optimistic about this ever happening.

      Happy just to be alive
