I think we will get this passed despite the far right nutjobs... I think this will be one of the more effective gun control type legislation as the AWB may or may not work very well and is unlikely to get passed since 2014 is coming on so fast (election year)... this will be a significant piece of legislation IMHO since we have been waiting a long time for something like this!! Newtown had to have had some effect on these GOP Senator's that are supporting it....
Just my .02....
P.S. Yes I know it has to pass the House too. . hopefully we can pull some northeastern GOP house members and a few wayward west coasters to support the bill.. I believe one of the GOP housemember's from Georgia has said he would support such a bill.. can't remember his name but that is significant!!!
