Talk about grasping at straws here....

...or, if you wanna see just how far the antis will go to get credit for something, click here. To make a long story short:
Despite huge bipartisan support in both houses, UT grad student and Virginia Tech alumnus John Woods and Students For Target-Rich Environments Students For Gun Free Zones with their tireless activism single-handedly stopped the campus carry bill from becoming law.
I love how this lefty blogger tries to spin this whole thing, by:
1. Saying that she thinks too many Democrat legislators felt pressure from the NRA. I guess she seems to forget this is Texas, where even a lot of Democrats are so conservative on issues like this they REALLY make most Northeast RINOs look like the dyed-in-the-wool lefties.
2. Saying that the bill was "so far down the list" that it would never get to the floor. Ahem. If I remember correctly, once the Democrats cranked up their filibuster, NOTHING was going to get to the floor.
Good grief, but these people have NO shame. The fate of the campus carry bill can be laid solely at the feet of those who filibustered on Voter ID -- or, depending on your ideological bent, those who kept pushing the bill in the face of the filibuster. I guess it just goes to show how far some people will go to get credit for some things. And now that I think about it, I must admit that is pretty funny that they have to go so far to do that. It's just another indicator of how far the antis have fallen.
