One of the reasons why Democrats were able to take back Congress last year was that they ran a lot of candidates who supported gun rights (Jim Webb is one prominent example), and thus neutralized that issue in many districts that Bush carried in 2004. So, it would be very risky for the Democrats to attempt to use the Virgina Tech tragedy to resurrect any type of gun control legislation. They’d be unlikely to find the support in Congress, and if the leadership did convince moderate Democrats to go along with stricter gun control measures, it would cause problems for Democrats in 2008. So, my bet would be that nothing will happen on the gun control front in the wake of this horrible event.
