I think it likely that Congress will use the very recent New York state law (yesterday) as a reason to hold back getting serious about making a new law.
This is because the NY state law exists. It is lying there, just calling for the full-meal-deal through the court system. And that means Congress can wait. "Wanting to see what the latest case law will say....." That sort of thing.
I'm actually feeling relieved at what I read in Post #30. The Prez has made his political statement, Joe Bite-em can return to his real job, and we gun owners don't seem badly hurt.
