The anti-gun provisions in the 2013 budget may be Obama's way of pandering to the left, but is there any doubt that those provisions would be rammed through if there was a Democratic majority in both houses of Congress after the November elections?
We're getting an eensy bit close to straight politics, but as a matter of strategy, it's worth discussing. Simply put, I expect few if any seats to pass to legislators sympathetic to gun control in the next election. I think we're good on that for now.

My concern is for representatives who don't read the small print, or who vote for a bill with these provisions because it gets them something they want for their constituents. This is where acting locally and keeping in touch with our legislators becomes vital.
Sometimes it’s nice not to destroy the world for a change.
