Promises, promises

The Washington Post reports:

“Newly ascendant Democrats are promising congressional action on gun control amid a rash of mass shootings … Pelosi vowed to push for a range of actions to stem gun violence, including restrictions on high-capacity magazines and a measure allowing temporary removal of guns from people deemed an imminent risk to themselves or others …”

I doubt that.  I expect a bunch of noise with little action.

Pelosi knows even if the House passes something the Senate won’t take it up.  The gun control agenda has been waning for years because the fringe advocates have never been able to deliver a political payoff to electeds who promote the agenda.  That has not changed.
