Surrender in Las Vegas

It was nice to see all three Democrat candidates follow the debate footsteps of Algore in tonight's Presidential debate in Las Vegas.

Algore surrendered the gun issue in a 2000 debate when he worried his union voters would vote elsewhere.

Tonight, Barack Hussein Obama, Hillary, and John Edwards all shelved any meaningful gun-control positions, including national registration. Empty rhetoric about bringing back the assault weapons ban was all they had.

We know they will wait for a Virginia Tech-type event to use emotion to pursue gun-control. But, it is refreshing to see the the white flag crowd surrender en-mass on this core issue.
