On Monday's Today, NBC's Chuck Todd claimed that Congress could pass gun control legislation but is just too afraid to do it. Todd reported that "the reality is there's political paralysis when it comes to the gun issue," even though the Senate already tried and failed to pass a background check bill in April. Todd instead blamed "recall elections that took place in Colorado just a few weeks ago" for Congress' lack of "motivation." "[T]hose recall elections that took place in Colorado just a few weeks ago almost guarantees that politically there is just no motivation by those in Congress to do anything right now," Todd said.
