    Perhaps beacuse the F'stein bill was written "over a year ago"? This is not a new demorat plan, simply being trotted out now for a variety of politically expedient reasons, and yes the recent "mass shooting" is one, whether TD likes it or not.

    I'd say its convenient she wrote a bill "over a year ago" and then within the last year we've had 9 highly publicized public shootings culminating in one killing children for them to really sell the idea.

    Call me a conspiracy theorist..... but the coincidence is just too great for me....
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    It's a punishment for the vast minority getting more media coverage. Out of millions upon millions of responsible gun owners, the media only focuses on the **** ups. Same with everything else, really. But lets judge about 50 million people based on the actions of one or two.

    It won't solve the issue of violence in America, though. Just another bandaid.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    What Feinstein does, does not a whole party make. So she wrote a gun law a year ago, five years ago, ten years ago, twenty years ago, thirty years ago, forty years ago,.......she withnessed the assassination of Harvey Milk. Several of gun control people in congress knew people and had family members that were murdered with guns. When it hits home, it becomes more personal. Surely, you can understand that.

    If her personal feelings are the only thing that affect her decision making process as a law maker....

    Maybe it is time she retire.

    Then so should the entire congress. Politicians are elected based on their beliefs.

    Funny but that "hits home" and "personnal" connection is exactly when we would have our judges recuse themselves. To assert that "rational" and "unbiased" decisions can be made by channeling "raw emotion" is foolish. What do you think is behind the timing of this "crisis" and sudden "call to action"?

    I'm pretty sure Feinstein can handle her emotions just fine. But I have serious doubt about the tea partiers in congress. The sudden call to action? Theres been a quite a few massacres over the last ten years and they only seem to be increasing. So when is a good time for you? After five more massacres? Ten, twenty, what?

    8 months ago would have been perfect.
