Obama lost big with a split vote. He has also threatened his own party members. Obama will not try this again. He did however have full support of the GOA [Gun Owners of America] ?? The GOA sided with Obama and supported his gun bill. The GOA leans left on gun issues.
Sen. Shumer says GOA is blocking him on gun control.http://gunowners.org/04172013.htm
GOA did support the Republican backed amendment to allow CC holders and residents of constitutional carry states to carry nationwide. This amendment failed by three votes.
I think the $20 I spent a few days ago joining GOA was a good investment.
