Senator Lautenberg and Rep. Carolyn McCarthy urge Obama to veto the national handgun reciprocity bill. Since the bill hasn't been passed by either Senate or House, let alone both, calls for its veto do seem a bit premature.
My comment went like this:
The automatic response:David, Isn't it common practice to publicly urge the President to veto a bill not yet approved? Isn't that part of the Washington DC legislative game? In your post you sound like you're poking Lautenberg and McCarthy with the stupid stick for having done this, while what they've done is normal practice.

I guess I'm banned over there, but I'll write to him to be sure it's not a mistake with the filter.
I suppose the undercurrent is that David likes the federal government to intervene in States' business when it suits him, just like so many other hypocritical gun-rights advocates.
You see for them, the gun is supreme, it trumps everything. So indoctrinated are they, that their brains trigger a lightning-fast negative response to any and all gun control suggestions, even the most sensible. Then they scramble around for justification, which they find in each others writing and rhetoric, much of that coming from their big-daddy leaders in the NRA.
