9. here is an interesting report on this similar thing in the california progress report

"Obama unlike Hilary Clinton voted for the Vitter-Obama emergency powers amendment. Given Heller, the bogeyman of gun confiscation is over indeed the Second Amendment Foundation just won its suit via a settlement against New Orleans. In so far as to a new assault weapons law the NRA fear that type of law could not pass for two reasons. One, Nancy Pelosi is not going to let it get to that stage. And, two, people forget that the 1994 law passed primarily because of Republicans most of whom are gone. Indeed, if the NRA thinks assault weapons are a deciding vote, why did it endorse McCain in light of his Aye vote on S. 1805?"

the dems have too many issues they want to resolve- including creating a de facto universal healthcare system (which i agree with it- im not a big fan of the single payer system), ending this war, turning around this economy- why would they risk this oppurtunity on a purely symbolic measure- they wouldnt

not to mention harry reid ain't no fan of the AWB himself- nor would he want to put some of his blue dog dems in danger for such a silly measure
