Grassley Taking Precautions

The media would have us believe the fight for new gun control is almost over.  Day after day we see stories that there are not 60 votes for a semi-auto ban or a standard capacity magazine ban or maybe even for so-called "universal" background checks.  Remember when we thought Democrats did not have the votes to pass Obamacare?

Politico reports Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) is drafting an alternative bill in the event Reid is able to round up 60 votes to pass his:
“Senator Grassley, along with other concerned members, is putting together an alternative bill that addresses gun violence in a manner that doesn’t violate the constitutional rights of law-abiding citizens in contrast to what appears to be in the bill proposed by the majority leader,” said Beth Levine, Grassley’s spokesman.
With Bloomberg continously applying pressure in a number of states, we can't take anything for granted.  Our grassroots can beat Bloomberg's money, but only if we keep up the pressure until the very end.
