Prospects for Federal Gun Control Grow Even Dimmer

The Boston Globe noted over the weekend that the gun ban lobby was hoping the anniversary of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in December might provide an opening to revisit Manchin/Schumer/Toomey. But others who voted against the bill in April likely feel the way Arizona Senator Jeff Flake does after last week's vote.
Asked if the Colorado recalls made him less likely to switch, Flake said last week, ‘‘I was not prone to do so. I'm comfortable where I am.’’
Flake has been the target of ads paid for by Mayors Against Illegal Guns. MAIG's efforts did not help in Colorado last week and it is likely those being targeted by the group believe they are on the right side of the issue.
