SHE GAVE THE NRA A SWORD:

House Moves Toward Broad Rollback of District Firearms Regulations (Keith Perine and Lydia Gensheimer, 9/16/08, Congressional Quarterly)

The House was expected to pass legislation Wednesday that would broadly roll back District of Columbia gun regulations, a victory for the National Rifle Association over House Democratic leaders.

Supporters of a narrower underlying bill (HR 6842) — sponsored by Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton , D-D.C. — that would allow the city to rewrite its laws conceded that a bipartisan majority favored the broader rollback (HR 6691) incorporated in a substitute amendment by Travis W. Childers, D-Miss.

But the measure is not likely to advance any further. California Democrat Dianne Feinstein vowed to block the legislation in the Senate.


So we should expect the Unicorn Rider to be bombarded with questions about whether he supports the filibuster, right?
