Way too risky. If we give an inch they will take a mile. We were very lucky to get Congress to put a sunset provision in the AWB of 1994, otherwise we would still be oppressed by it.
Remember when Clinton was elected? He was wrapped around the little finger of Sarah Brady and helped pass the AWB in 1994. This did not stop him from being re-elected in 1996 although the Democrats lost control of Congress.
Obama's ratings are already slipping. It is up to the GOP to position a reliable candidate to defeat him. Surely they can do better than McCain.
