From a post over at NRO (italics added) (http://corner.nationalreview.com/post/?q=YWFlOTAyZmFjN2YzMDlkZDc4NTcwNDgwYjgwMDgzNzk=):

My first response to hearing that Rahm Emmanuel is the President-elect's first choice for White House Chief of Staff, was to wonder just how quickly all the other promises of change and a new politics would be similarly repudiated. Emmanuel is a very, very tough partisan, known for practicing fairly brutal politics in the Clinton White House. He's clever. He was one of the big recruiters of Democratic candidates who actually favor the second amendment many of whom won Congressional seats in 2006. He will dole out rewards to allies and punishment to adversaries ruthlessly.

You should not assume he has ANY proRKBA stance at all.
He was virulently antigun when he left Clinton admin and resumed work in Illinois.

That was just practicality. At least the image of 1994 has been burned into his memory.
