Manchin-Toomey As Gun Control Bonanza

Dave Kopel at Volokh Conspiracy argues that the Manchin-Toomey proposal is actually a serious problem, and presents a number of reasons to think it was poorly drafted.  It is too long to summarize, but the evidence suggests that it was either incompetently drafted, or that the other side did a better job of negotiating than we first thought.


  1. Alan Gottlieb brags on the CCRKBA website he helped write this awful bill. He should be ashamed.

  2. So the Republicans are being rolled on "compromise" legislation. Who could ever have seen this coming?

    They should replace their elephant mascot with Charlie Brown attempting to kick a football.
