A politician is a politician is a politician

WASHINGTON (AP) — Lawmakers from both parties voiced their willingness Sunday to pursue some changes to the nation's gun laws, but adamant opposition from the National Rifle Association has made clear than any such effort will face significant obstacles.
NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre dismissed efforts to revive a ban on assault weapons as a "phony piece of legislation" that's built on lies.
Democratic lawmakers in Congress have become more adamant about the need for stricter gun laws since the shooting of 20 children and six teachers at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California is promising to push for a renewal of expired legislation that banned certain weapons and limited the number of bullets a gun magazine could hold to 10.
"I think we ought to be looking at where the real danger is, like those large clips," said Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, R-Texas.

Yup, you read that right - the republicans are joining the fight to ban larger 'clips'.

Kay Bailey Hutchinson is a RINO and everyone in Texas knows it. We just elected Ted Cruz to take her place and he's willing to hold the Democrats' feet to the fire.

During the last campaign cycle, our lefty democrat NRA backed congressthing waved a couple of guns around in his advertisements bragging about how the pistol was used by his grandfather to "stop a lynching" and how much he supported the 2nd amendment.

Let's see how his tune plays during this upcoming debate.

Since his track record is 90% with the Obama admin, any guesses?

This is not surprising. Ron Paul and Rand Paul were the only republicans to vote against the NDAA. Only those two and a handful of others voted against the Patriot Act, or forming the TSA and DHS.
