This is the inside story of how I held back the Republicans from curtailing our gun rights until help arrived.  Washington is full of brave people when times are good and cowards when things get tough.

There is perhaps no greater example than the Congress’ reaction — in particular the Senate’s reaction.  In the course of a few hours, lifelong self-proclaimed advocates of the Second Amendment were looking to enact the most sweeping gun control legislation in a generation.

They almost succeeded.
