"The NRA has been an intimidating foe for Democrats in the past. But despite a call to action by the NRA, the political risk to Obama from this vocal and committed lobby is lower than in recent years, analysts say."
Scary, BUT I read the exact opposite of this just a few weeks ago. Stating that NO democrat would be willing to spend their "political capital" on a renewal of the AWB, citing the political fallout from the LAST AWB under Clinton...ALSO that the NRA recently got a few dems in their corner and fended off Eric Holder a month or so ago, and got the Attention of the administration, telling Holder to back off of the issue...
I suppose that we shall just have to wait and see..?
