NRA: We must have 31-round clips
Well, then, I guess the debate is over


Six days after Tucson, the NRA broke its silence, pledging to fight off any and all attempts
to impose harsher regulations on guns and high-capacity magazines.

An unattributed statement posted on the NRA website late Friday, written in the rhetorical style
the blood-thirsty bastards are known for, dubbed gun control supporters "gun ban advocates"
and the proposals mentioned in the wake of the mass shooting "schemes."

There's no question that the debate over gun control will continue after the Tucson attack,"
the NRA said. "Please rest assured that the NRA will, as always, stand front and center
in defense of the rights of gun owners."

The association took a pre-emptive strike at legislation which would ban the future sale or transfer
of high-capacity magazines like the one used by Jared Loughner. That bill will be proposed next week
by Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-NY), who told TPM that the legislation is gaining momentum.
The Senate version will be introduced by Frank Lautenberg, who said that America's problem
is not that there are more madmen, but that guns are too readily available to them.

This is another issue that should be a slam-dunk for Democrats, but we don't have
any leadership so once again, the GOP and the Assassins Lobby will roll right over us.

Is there nothing that today's Democrats will fight for?

Why do Democrats fight so hard and spend MILLIONS to get elected
only to say, "Gee, I dunno, I don't have an opinion," at crunch time?
