Fight over bill allowing accessible guns in National Parks
Story here. McCain is cosponsoring the amendment, and Reid is pulling the bill, reportedly so that Sen. Clinton and Obama don't have to vote on it.
Tho I'd think a simpler solution would be for the two to announce they're too busy campaigning to fly back to DC for a vote on a modest amendment. As I recall, Hillary has played that hand before on controversial votes.
Sure...poaching and violence are going to go up because a woman can have a handgun in her purse or backpack when she's miles from anywhere? Or a guy with a concealed carry permit can have a pistol in his glove compartment, as is legal in almost every state surrounding the park?
That's brilliant...bloody brilliant.
