It must really suck to be on the other side....
Scripps News: Prospects dim for new restrictions on gun ownership.
"The White House Web site's description of the administration's agenda calls for a variety of gun-control measures, .... But the Democratic majority at the other end of Pennsylvania Avenue has shown no appetite to act on any of those proposals."
Democratic Underground: Feinstein: Not The Time For Gun Control.
"The California senator who authored the nation's now-lapsed 1994 ban on assault weapons says she will hold off trying to renew that ban. "
Eric Holder, to CBS: "I understand the second amendment... I look forward to working with the NRA."
Via CNN: " 54 percent favored stricter laws in 2001, compared with 50 percent in 2007, according to Gallup polling. Now, a recent poll reveals a sudden drop -- only 39 percent of Americans now favor stricter gun laws...".
And, best of all... Brady Campaign flips out over Gallup polling. "Today's Gallup news release, "Support for Gun-Control Laws at All-Time Lows", is one of the most misleading I've seen in a long time."
UPDATE: SayUncle notes a posting by Tom Diaz, of Violence Policy Center, that, well, suggests he is profoundly depressed. I mean, to the point of throwing in the towel, saying that Chuck Shumer and Hilary Clinton are selling them out, etc..
The desire remains strong, and anything said to the contrary by a Democrat is most likely a lie, or a delaying tactic to put us off guard.

Holder, as expected, gets it wrong. He should be looking forward to working with the citizens of this country, not just the NRA.

The gun grabbers are like vampires, you never kill them.

They're not opposed to gun control. They're just opposed to sacrificing their taxpayer-funded lifestyles for gun control.
