Reports now coming out in greater numbers regarding increasingly tepid support from within his own Democratic Party regarding Barack Obama’s attempts to further regulate Second Amendment gun rights in the United States. Even some of the most liberal Democrats are distancing themselves from President Obama on this issue.
( “Apparently the NRA and some other groups were lining up primary challengers to Democrats who went along with the president’s gun control plans and letting those Democrats know it was coming. That scared the heck out of them.” -R.I. earlier this week )

Senate Dems hesitant on Obama gun control plan
President Obama’s gun-control package was always going to be a tough sell in the Republican-led House — but the plan is already running into resistance, or at least hesitation, from moderate Democrats in the Senate.
…Many of the Democrats voicing concern are up for re-election in 2014. A total of 20 Democratic seats are up in the next cycle — 22 when special elections are included.
…Even Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid of Nevada, who is considered to have a pro-gun rights record, said only that the chamber would “consider” the legislation. LINK
