    Reid Freezes Gun Bill

    DENVER - SEPTEMBER 13:  A Colt AR-15, now legal with a bayonet mount, flash suppressor, collapsible stock and a high capacity magazine that holds more than 30 rounds, sits on the counter of Dave's Guns September 13, 2004 in Denver, Colorado. Between 1994 and September 13, 2004 these guns could only be sold to law enforcement and military but now it is legal for civilians to purchase them due to the expiration of the Brady Bill.

    When it comes to Congress, there’s no day like tomorrow. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid announced Thursday that gun control legislation will be put aside as the Senate takes “a pause” on the bill. President Obama’s effort to curb gun violence was defeated in the Senate yesterday. On the Senate floor Thursday, Reid pledged to come back to the bill, saying, “Yesterday President Obama said it was a shameful day for the Senate, and it probably was, I agree. But we should make no mistake: this debate is not over, in fact this fight is just beginning.”
