I hate to overly complicate the process, but it occurs to me that committee activity should be taken into account in the ratings. The vote in committee certainly matters, as do the antigun amendments that get offered. We saw one such amendment fail Monday by a margin of only one vote. That was the amendment to allow government to seize weapons when "transporting" people. Yeah, like in Katrina, when they picked people up to dump them off at the Superdome. Think you will get it back when you arrive at the shelter? Such amendment attempts and committee votes should count, with the offering of antigun amendments counting more than a committee vote. Really, the person who tried to exempt legislators from public gathering laws last year should get some kind of black mark on his/her record, don't you think?
