Seeing Something That Isn't There

That's the best way to describe this quote from Ladd Everitt, a spokesman for the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, regarding the likely renewal of the current ban on weapons that can get by detectors at security checkpoints:

Advocates for expanded gun laws say the expected House vote may be a signal that some support exists for stricter laws after the shooting almost a year ago in Newtown, Connecticut, that killed 20 elementary school students and six adults.
“Any time you see the House of Representatives moving forward on firearms legislation it’s a very good sign,” said Ladd Everitt, a spokesman for the Washington-based Coalition to Stop Gun Violence. 

Unlike New York Senator Chuck Schumer's bill, the House bill is a clean renewal of the current law that is scheduled to expire on December 9th. To think that passage of the House bill is a sign the environment has changed for other gun control is simply fantasy.
