Reid Joins Pelosi in Opposition to Revived AWB


Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid will join Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) in opposing any effort to revive the 1994 assault weapons ban, putting them on the opposite side of the Obama administration.
Reid spokesman Jim Manley said the Nevada Democrat will preserve his traditional pro-gun rights voting record.
"Senator Reid would oppose an effort (to) reinstate the ban if the Senate were to vote on it in the future," Manley told The Hill in an e-mail late Thursday night.

Good news, assuming it's true.  However, now is not the time to rest on our laurels.  It is still important to contact your Representative and Senators to express your opposition to any Federal gun control, so that they know we won't go away.

This seems more like an element/bargaining chip of the Pelosi/Obama feud than anything else.

As soon as Obama gives Pelosi something she wants, she'll roll over like a dead whale.

Could very well be.
