No, I wasn't as active in 249 as other bills. It wasn't a hill we had staked out. But Steinberg is a manipulator. He seldom votes on anything until the last, so he can use his position to try and coerce whomever for concessions, favors, possibly even contributions. Inserting himself on that is not surprising, nor necessarily attributable to a factor you allude to.

Time might tell here. If the legislature picks up more beholden democrats, I'd be worried that more legislation along the 249 line will be served up. That might amplify if prop 30 passes too. I don't believe they fear the gun lobby, or gun owners like they did years ago.
