Gun, pot bills attract the most attention online

It’s a Top 10 list that will never make David Letterman’s show, but it reveals that people are very interested in guns and marijuana.

A relatively new feature on the Library of Congress THOMAS site is a Top 10 list of bills searched on Congress’s official website.

Of course, these bills might get a lot of hits, but that doesn’t mean they’re headed for President Obama’s desk any time soon. Feinstein likely doesn’t have the votes to move her bill in the Senate, and Blumenauer’s legislation in the GOP-led House only has one Republican co-sponsor, Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (Calif.).

Other bills that are in the Top 10 tackle freezing pay for federal employees, postal reform and North Korea. Obama’s healthcare bill from the 111th Congress registers at No. 8.
