Sens. Lautenberg, Menendez introduce federal gun-control bills

And they're off!

The story is a travesty of reporting by the way. The story starts with the promise of:

Three federal gun-control bills introduced Tuesday would help prevent such violence as the Tucson attack that left six dead and 14 injured, according to the New Jersey Democratic senators sponsoring the package.

Then we are made to think that the local NRA representative, Brian Swarz and the president of the ANJRPC, Scott L. Bach, are dodging their calls and emails.

Lautenberg has tried and failed twice before to get gun-show restricting legislation passed and now is leveraging the Tuscon tragedy to attempt to advance his agenda.

The comments on the story at NJ.com are interesting - many asking why our Senators are not focused on jobs and other immediate and threatening issues.

  1. Cause like Unc says, gun control is what you do instead of something.
