“Expanding background checks at gun shows will not prevent the next shooting, will not solve violent crime and will not keep our kids safe in schools,” the NRA said.

MEMO to the NRA: In the past, you’ve ignorantly supported “pro gun” Democrats (as if such a thing were possible) like Reid and Manchin. So, are you ready to admit that this was a stoooopid flaccid attempt at faux bipartisanship now?

(crickets)

So the NRA is going to oppose the bill, huh?

Are they also going to oppose Manchin and Toomey (and Reid, among others they’ve given money to) from here on out?

News flash: King Obama’s communists empire is action, NRA is talk and hope. Getting real pissed that the only group winning is the communists Democrats.

Hey NRA! You endorsed Rat Bastard Manchin. Twice. You gave Rat Bastard Manchin an "A" rating. Twice.

Got any comments on that?

Hmmmm?

I hate to seem ignorant, but . . .
I'm as distrustful of government as anyone, but I am not clear on what makes these background checks dangerous.
I'm even willing to concede the point that it may not prevent any future havoc, "will not solve violent crime and will not keep our kids safe in schools," as the NRA puts it. Still, even if it's ineffective,what's the concern about it?

Pat Toomey rode the TEA party coattail to come up with this legislation with Manchin (D-WV). That’s the real crime.

Why doesn’t Speaker Bohener nip this in the bud and say that any gun control bill is DOA in the House, like Reid has done numerous time with budget bills ?

I keep hearing about the demand for gun control to prevent “felons” from acquiring firearms! Can someone please tell me which “felon” committed the tragedies in Newtown, Aurora or Tucson?

It does appear the socialist always use “felons” as a fall back push for more gun control because most gullible Americans will always support keeping firearms out of the hands of so called “felons” when in fact, the socialist are pushing legislation to prevent ownership, possession, and collection and eventual confiscation all firearms from “law abiding” Americans!!!!

Wake up America, they are coming for YOUR firearms, the use of “felons” has NOTHING to do with the latest gun control push and “Universal firearm Registry and Background checks” since “felons” cannot possess a firearm under current federal law!

You would think Manchin and Toomey would have ASKED for the NRA’s input...

Manchin’s office told BuzzFeed Wednesday that the senators had been talking with the NRA, but the Second Amendment group had thus far remained “neutral.”

Liars. They knew damned well this would never fly with the NRA.

What part of this do they not understand:

“Amendment II

A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”

NRA should back a primary challenger to Toomey.

That would get his attention.

Although I have my issue with the NRA (I’m a member), it has a top-notch PR team that really knows how to frame the debate. If only our so-called Republican leadership had the will and stomach to do the same. The debate should not be about gun control;, but about violence that from a statistical standoint is epidemic in certain segments of our population.

Target pre-HS grad, teen mothers and you’ll see poverty and crime plummet. Chicago would be more like Mayberry without teen motherhood.

Of course, doing that strikes at two of the gods of liberalism: free sex and welfare programs.

Why can’t conservative candidates win on this?

...they’re opposed to Manchin and Toomey, but continue to back Harry Reid...

Someone help me out here; this is gibberish.

There are no "internet sales." All sales must be through an FFL. WTF?

Gun show sales already require a background check. WTF?

What is this about? It sounds like a drug-induced article from a Libtard.
