    The Democratically-controlled U.S. Senate will not be a free-for-all of new gun regulations following the shooting at Sandy Hook, according to Majority Leader Harry Reid. Instead, Senators will focus on passing legislation that can move through the Republican-controlled House, Reid said.

    That could spell doom for an assault weapons ban. Speaking on Nevada Week In Review, a news show on the PBS affiliate in Las Vegas, Reid said there’s no real chance of a new ban passing the House.

    Simple: Reid plays "politics" to further the agenda. How many bills are in limbo because he won't bring them to a vote in the Senate? Yet, introducing this bill, will give the liberals another club to beat up conservatives. "Never let a good crisis go to waste."
