Reid's bill is a shell that covers everything on Obama's wish list. Other bills addressing specific topics can be attached as amendments to Reid's bill and then the whole thing can be amended during floor debate just before a final vote. Reid's bill will be passed because it will be the container for the no-brainer topics such as mental health, training, preparedness, etc. The real question is whether -or what- controversial stuff will slip into the bill.
