    The debate here wasn't much of a debate and that is owed mostly to Republicans not fully engaging the fight. Rep. Nicholson fires the first shot, and it was a solid shot in terms of laying groundwork for further argumentation. However, he is met with two Democratic responses that do an excellent job refuting both the facts and the philosophy (the eminient domain argument was particularly interesting to libertarians with no alternative argument presented by the GOP). Had Nicholson responded I imagine he could have laid out his case and fought this to a draw. Had his party backed up his play, they very well could have made a realistic case for their position. As it was, however, the general trend here is that the public feels that supporting this legislation is the wrong thing for their Congressman and Senator to do. It is always hard to quantify how much any single debate moves the needle, but it is fair to say that changing the general will has to start somewhere, and one-sided debates like this are doing so for this legislation. This debate was a big win for the DNC and if I were the GOP I wouldn't minimize or discount debate. It IS important, and it is important not only in the cumulative, but issue by issue.

However, some gun control activists criticize Dominguez for sponsoring this bill so soon after the Mall of America shooting.
