NRA may be running out of targets in Florida

With two gun bills heading through Florida's Capitol, the National Rifle Association looks like it's starting to run out of big issues to fight for. Gov. Charlie Crist plans to approve the legislation that would stop legislators from raiding a special trust fund that pays for concealed-weapons permit regulation and ban adoption agencies from requiring prospective parents to disclose whether they have a firearm. Both bills attest to the might of the NRA. But the group has won so many victories that even supporters say the gun lobby is now left with little nips and tucks to the right to own firearms.
