| Now that there is actual legislation they might have to vote on, both Colorado Senators Mark Udall and Mike Bennet are now uncommitted on an assault weapons ban:
WASHINGTON - A Democratic push to ban roughly 150 types of assault-style weapons Thursday has placed Colorado Sens. Michael Bennet and Mark Udall in a tough spot.
Neither Democrat has committed to supporting the legislation carried by their Senate colleague Dianne Feinstein of California, saying Thursday they want to study the proposal to make sure it aligned with Colorado values.
"The Second Amendment and a strong tradition of gun ownership, particularly for hunting and sporting, are a vital part of Colorado's heritage," Bennet said. "Just as strongly as we honor that tradition, we must do more to keep the wrong guns out of the wrong hands.
Both senators are the very definition of safe and bland. Wonder Bread meets Miracle Whip.
Aside from the fact that both senators have so far managed to evade most of their responsibility for the very jobs they were elected to, along with their spineless inaction on the highly abused filibuster, they have virtually guaranteed another 2-4 years of gridlocked senate.
Even before these (in)actions, both senators have worked specifically to negate the affects of liberal policies and progressive views on the body politic in Washington, DC:
Colorado's two freshman senators, Mark Udall and Michael Bennet, are part of a self-described centrist group of 15 Democrats meeting regularly "seeking to restrain the influence of party liberals in the White House and on Capitol Hill."
Even beyond that Senator Udall and Representative Polis are on the board of another do-nothing, milquetoast organization called Third Way.
Amidst the epic cowardice of Democrats like Udall and Bennet in DC, steps John Elway, local sports hero, dedicated Republican, and endorser of Mitt Romney, into the news with an interview about some of these very issues:
CNN's Piers Morgan shifted to the topic of gun violence. He mentioned the Aurora theater shootings and asked Elway his views.
"I'm still kind of waiting to hear both sides of it," Elway said. "I'm a gun owner and I'm a hunter and I enjoy that and I respect the Second Amendment."
Morgan asked about people owning "military-style rifles that can pump out 100 bullets a minute."
"I don't own a machine gun," Elway replied.
He said he didn't see a reason anyone would need one and said "that's the side I'm waiting to hear about."
Hmmmmmm, Elway sounds just like a senator.
Maybe that's what Mark Udall is afraid of.
