Gun control activists have launched a frenzied effort to revive legislation that failed in the Senate last month.

They see a glimmer of hope, pointing to the plummeting poll numbers of lawmakers who opposed the bill and the anger expressed at Sen. Kelly Ayotte’s (R-N.H.) recent town-hall meetings, where she was challenged on her “no” vote.

The Senate’s move to block a series of gun control measures — particularly a proposal expanding background checks — has been viewed as the dagger that destroyed any chance of enacting new firearms restrictions in the wake of December’s grade-school massacre in Newtown, Conn.

But as Washington’s policymakers have shifted their attention to budget issues and immigration reform, gun control groups have used the Senate defeat to redouble their fight for tougher policies that polls show have overwhelming public support.
