This is a three-pronged attack:
1) Apply more pressure to the democratic legislators to vote for more gun bans.
2) Lull the pro-gun citizens into stopping, or slacking off on, their efforts.
3) Give the press an excuse to shut up while the legislators work behind the scenes - as they always do when their propaganda is backfiring.
It's not going to pass, so you can all go home now. Before the final language is even written? SUUUURE it's not. How many times have we heard THAT, just before they did a full-court, dark-of-night, end-of-session push and got some new power grab through?
This is right out of the playbook. I've heard stuff like this from other anti-gunners, too, at about the same time. That smells like it's in their talking points memos.
It's not over as long as they're in session. Heck, it's not over until WE've gotten the "gun-free" free-fire zone laws repealed and school employees can carry concealed to protect themselves and the kids, just like other people in other occupations where they're in charge of a target of violence. Even then it's just one battle and the war will continue.

That means: For each job "created or saved" about five were destroyed.
