Posted on 04/09/2013 3:21:36 PM PDT by South40
WASHINGTON Several Senate Republicans on Tuesday came out publicly against filibustering the first major gun control legislation since 1993 before it is even brought up for debate on the Senate floor, as advocates inched toward breaking a conservative blockade of the measure.
Were moving forward on this bill, said Mr. Reid, who earlier Tuesday invoked his own fathers suicide by gunshot to implore consideration of the legislation, which would expand background checks for gun buyers, bolster school safety and crack down on people who purchase firearms for those who are not entitled to own them. The American people deserve a vote on this legislation.

NEVER support a demonic-rat!
The lines are clear - one side is good and supports individual freedom, the other side is evil and supports absolute power in the hands of government. Those who support even more restrictive gun laws are America’s enemies, and they pose a clear and present danger to our freedom.
“Under the measure, records of gun sales would be kept, but Ms. Collins said she was satisfied that those records could in no way be compiled into a national gun registry, a fear gun rights groups have been voicing.”
BS!!! Just to have records is compiling into a national gun registry. It will be computerized records and can be merged and sorted meaning they have a database.
The GOP can’t be trusted to back the Second Amendment.
Its a useless party.
So it's not bad enough that Obama and the Dems are campaigning for this on the corpses of New Town, now Dummy Reid is digging up his daddy's corpse to drag around on the Senate floor too? So this bill would what Harry, bring your dad back to life? Prevent suicides? My gosh these craven Dems are shameless.
Two things, gun control and amnesty. If the Republicans can’t or won’t hold the line on either of these then they have seen my last penny and vote. Just sayin’
Stand your ground Republicans.
Get with the program.
There is an election in the not too distant future. You lost the last one because of this sort of middle-of-the-road compromise.
Do not compromise.
Stand for what is right. Now.
Without reading the article: McCain, Graham, and other “moderates”.
Had pops hung himself would Hairy Reed be asking to ban rope?
Too many gutless RINOS.
What part of “...shall not be infringed...” Don’t these pukes undestand?
National Review Online recently reported on something you didnt hear from the lame-stream media. When Rand Paul staged his now famous 13-hour filibuster the polls showed a 50-point shift in public opinion toward his position.
Senator Mike Lee commented: Once it became clear what the principle was that was being stood for, the public naturally followed.
When Paul staged his first filibuster... we didnt see it coming. We had no warning and we had no time to mount a campaign of support.
But now that we know what may be coming, we have no excuse not to make our voices heard and help make it happen.
Hahaha!! Good point. I’d shoot myself too if I produced a kid as dumb and worthless and Dopey Reid.
You will never solve drunk driving by making it harder for sober people to own cars and you will never solve crime by making it harder for law abiding people to own guns.
If the House votes for any of this crap, they can kiss their majority bu-bye.
Given the government's ineptness at designing effective computer systems, she might be technically right. I'm not willing to take that risk, though.
Its a useless party.
Its a useless, pathetic and stupid party.
