GUN CONTROL LEGISLATION:  Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) plans to “reintroduce legislation that would curtail the ability of a shooter to fire at length without reloading” following the shooting in Colorado on Friday, the Huffington Post’s Sam Stein reports. “If reports are correct and a high-capacity gun magazine was used to commit these awful murders, Senator Lautenberg will absolutely renew his effort to limit the availability of this dangerous firearm attachment,” Lautenberg’s communications director Caley Gray said.  Neither President Obama nor Mitt Romney will touch gun control because it’s not politically correct to discuss that topic. Sad but true. (h/t Think Progress)

    Funny how the steady stream of bodies coming out of Newark, Camden and Trenton has never compelled Senator Lautenberg into action as the shooting in CO has done.
