"Actually, he's not in favor of the entire bill and worked against the bill in the past...so even though his bill may...even though some of the things, even if they did have merit...I'm sure that since he'd be in control of the bill, he would try to subvert the entire bill or his wish would be to do away with the conceal and carry."
