The establishment on both parties knows how the Dems lost the House and Senate after the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban and again in 2010 with as an answer to the first term of Obama. They will have much to lose if they try and push for it now. Which is why I say now that pressure needs to be put on the knee jerk, tearful handwringing of the establishment politicians (of both flavors), but not to go and sell you car to stock up on stripped receivers.
The canary in the coal mine is if the DNC is willing to truly push for additional gun legislation and so abdicate more seats in the House and Senate. Any national disenfranchisement our firearm rights will be met with resounding defeats everywhere except for the deeply established colonies of big "S" socialist elitism, (i.e. NYC, LA, Chicago, Baltimore, San Fran, etc.). If they are, they have abandoned any pretense that things will things will continue on the two part path. The two state cold war we have currently enjoy will get lots and lots warmer.
