I don’t think anyone should put any money on a bet that there will be broad sweeping [federal gun legislation] and I don’t think this really matters who controls Congress. I just think it’s very, very hard to build a coalition that could enact legislation as sweeping as, say, some of the gun control legislation of the sixties or the [Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act], for example. At the state level, I suspect that what we may end up seeing is something along the lines of what we have seen since Heller, which is legislation that is very responsive to particular events and particular incidents.
