Senate to move on gun control.

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424127887324761004578282203882922738.html

Senate Democratic leaders expect to introduce a gun bill that includes most of the proposals backed by President Barack Obama, with the notable exception of a ban on military-style, semiautomatic weapons, a top aide to Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada said.

The bill would likely seek to limit the capacity of ammunition magazines; expand background checks to include sales at gun shows and other private transactions; and require better record keeping to keep guns out of the hands of those with mental illnesses. It would also try to curb gun sales in states with more relaxed gun laws to buyers in states with stricter laws.


Except for the limit on magazine capacity, i'd say this has a decent chance of passing.

4. School House Rock, People

 

Doesn't matter what bills are introduced in the Senate if they have no chance of being passed by the House. And, a gun ban has ZERO chance of being passed by the House.
