It is sort of telling about the whole mindset of the gun grabbers - There was some discussion about the orders of amendments to be offered on the floor, and Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) says
"Of Course, Mr. Chairman, we have to put the 1st Amendment to the side in order to get to the Second"
So fitting so fitting.
First they enact the Campaign Finance Reform Act to put the 1st Amendment to the side and prevent the NRA from criticizing them.
Now, they get to attack the Second Amendment at will without fear of election day retribution.
