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.

Sen. Dianne FeinsteinDianne Emiel FeinsteinSenators want assurances from attorney general pick on fate of Mueller probe Mattis: Investigation into killing of Khashoggi is ongoing Senators introduce resolution saying Saudi crown prince 'complicit' in Khashoggi slaying MORE’s (D-Calif.) measure to ban assault weapons has the top spot with Rep. Earl BlumenauerEarl BlumenauerFive things to know about Ocasio-Cortez’s 'Green New Deal' John Lewis joins Ocasio-Cortez on climate change push GOP leaders hesitant to challenge Trump on Saudi Arabia MORE’s (D-Ore.) bill to allow states to legalize medical marijuana in second place.

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.
