Every idea to curb gun violence should be debated and get a vote: stronger background checks, ban on assault weapons, among others— Senator Harry Reid (@SenatorReid) April 8, 2013
Not that we’re complaining, mind you, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has been taking a beating from both sides of the ideological spectrum lately. Reid, who recently earned a “B” rating from the NRA, angered many when he said that Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s sweeping assault weapon ban would not be part of the Democratic gun bill to be sent to the Senate floor. Tonight, though, Reid is proclaiming that every idea that might curb gun violence — including an assault weapon ban — deserves a vote. Why not these?
Someone tell KKOH radio that Reid wants every idea debated, not shouted down with personal attacks.
It wouldn’t be a Harry Reid tweet if it didn’t manage to blame Republicans somehow. Fortunately, Reid picked up the slack in a follow-up post.
