"Reid Maneuvers Gun Bill to Save Red State Dems".

This is on the front page of, and once the news of a very watered-down bill in the Senate makes the rounds, the fever is going to cool.
Reid has reportedly split any AWB out of the bill.

Ammo prices will be headed down fairly soon, but will the simple fact that ammo was never threatened, sink in pretty soon?

It will denied by the many people who invested in ammo for quick profit, denying many shooters the availability to buy most types.
Most of us knew that numerous politicians don't want to sacrifice their jobs in 2014.
This very weakened Senate Bill would still need to pass the House.

Yeah, well, it's a legal/political thing, not really a rifle thing. I haven't looked, but there's likely a thread on it somewhere...

Correct. It's already under discussion: AWB Removed From Base Gun Control Bill in Senate
I'm a lawyer, but I'm not your lawyer. If you need some honest-to-goodness legal advice, go buy some.
