Astonishing Honesty

5/6/24 Colorado Public Radio discusses how the assault weapon ban bill was pulled back by the author because it was unpassable.  An interesting admission from a Democrat who sounds sympathetic to a ban:

"Democratic Rep. Meg Froelich of Denver is sponsoring several gun bills this session with Sullivan this session. She acknowledged the ban is a thorny policy.

“I think it has always had a difficult path because the arguments against a ban are policy arguments, but the arguments for it are from the heart,” said Froelich. “The reality of the upper chamber where there’s a significant number of folks who don’t agree with the policy.” emphasis added

An open admission that they cannot come up with sound arguments for a ban but it makes them feel good.
