CALL YOUR SENATORS at 202-224-3121. Demand that they vote against the Toomey-Manchin-Schumer sell-out. Let them know that Gun Owners of America will be scoring this vote in its end-of-year rating.

please call all the senators who might possibly vote for this horrible unconstitutional bill

(and if we can defeat it now, maybe we can get a follow-up bill to abolish all the existing unconstitutional laws and regulations that only serve to deny good citizens’ their rights to defend themselves and their families and communities)

Glad to hear that this affront to our God-given rights may be cratered as soon as today.

I can understand the Newtown parents who want this bill passed. They are just lashing out, and they want somebody to be punished. From the brainwashing they’ve received from their education and the media, it’s the EVYL “gun culture” that caused the deaths of their beloved children.

They are, at best, pawns.

But that is no reason to encroach upon the rights of law abiding citizens.

In the end, they too would be punished by the diminution of any birthright.

Just as every murder diminishes all of us, every encroachment on our rights, especially in response to murder, diminishes us yet again.

Dear FReepers,
Due to the economy, combined with posters who refuse to donate, the FReepathon Team is anticipating a long haul. We have started working on Memorial Day graphics. Got ideas? Send them along. We also are looking for ideas on Flag Day
Sincerely,
Your FReepathon Team

It never dies. I'd like to see considerably more respect for the constitution, and Congress could start by repealing some of the more onerous parts of the federal firearm mess.

I read that NRA is revising their scoring. Now the procedural votes count.

We haven ‘t lost it either. It’s a whole lot harder getting something back than keeping hold of it. Yet I agree, we should never loosen our grip.

And when these treasonous bastards come up for re-election, REMEMBER, and throw their worthless arses out.

"We haven’t won this, not by a long, long way."

Gallup says all of 4% think gun control is the top problem facing the US today -- so I think we've won the "hearts and minds" part of the war. But as wars go, this battle was more Breed's Hill than Yorktown.

"The Vitter/Cornyn amendment would allow concealed carry holders and persons in constitutional carry states to carry nationwide. •The Burr amendment would guarantee that veterans cannot lose their gun rights without a court order. •And the Barrasso amendment would defund state governments that release the names of gun owners."

Wouldn't it be hilarious if we defeat the assault weapons ban, the high capacity magazine ban and the gun registry ban and these above amendments pass and are put into a "gun control" bill? I would be laughing my arse off. We could come out of this with an extension of our 2nd amendment freedoms!!

Good! What they need to look at is the Doctors giving out medication to kids for no damn reason at all. THAT is the problem!!!!! It is literally being PUSHED. I experienced it with a substitute Dr. one day. He commented that I looked ‘anxious’. (yes, I was going late to work and waited a half hour for him already)-—so he gave wrote up a script. He gave it to me and when i asked him what it was, he wouldn’t give me a direct answer and literally told me ‘not’ to look it up on the internet and to just let him know how I feel after a month. I took it and looked it up right away and was soooooo pissed! IT was anti-anxiety drug. Now, it was on my record! I ripped it up and had that office wipe it from my record!!! I am still livid.

The gun control bill will die, not only because of public pressure, but of events in the last few days, what happened up in Boston.

Not much reason to call my senators: Ted Cruz and Kay Bailey—they are both pro gun. I’d be horrifically surprised if either one voted for this bill.

Rubio in Florida might be on the right side but would probably compromise to get his amnesty bill through.

Bill Nelson doesn’t even bother to respond.

Gun websites are reporting that Senator Ayote (Spelling?) has come out as a NO on the bill. She was the last Republican who hadn't announced her intentions. That effectively kills it, because even if they got every democrat on board at the last minute they would still be short 1 vote as they only have Toomey, Kirk, Collins and McCain.

Gun Control like Tuberculosis, will probably never die.

You can force them back into retreat once in a while, but they will come surging back as soon as we as a society take our eyes of the prize, and in addition allow people who are carriers to enter our nation at will.

I know that feeling, my Senator's are Manchin, who's name is on the bill and Rockefeller who is a gun grabber of the Feinstein variety from way back.

I'm surprised Graham stabbed his "bathhouse-daddy" McCain in the back, of course he does have a contested primary coming up so McCain might have given him permission as long as he stayed on the reservation for immigration.

But what about the children?

I can remember when even the mention of gun control was political suicide. I can also remember that calling someone gay was intended to be an insult and was fightin words.

Of course now they are both mainstream ‘forward thinking’ ideas that are not only touted in congress, but incesantly pushed down our throats by the MEDIA and brainwashed into our school children.

Now... if a senator needs a bill passed... he can bring up the ole tried and true arguement “its for the children”.

My senator Richard Burr is voting against it. I asked if my call was somehow logged and she stated that they are keeping track of the number of calls they are getting requesting he votes no.

So I guess my call was one.

As a Senator he/she can be reached via email and phone by any American in any state, unlike the block from emailing other Reps outside your district.

This, from Kay Hagan, D, NC:::::::::

Sen. Kay Hagan (D-NC), a closely watched Democrat facing reelection in 2014, said Monday she will support the Manchin-Toomey compromise legislation to expand background checks.

......“Hagan said in a statement sent to TPM by her office. "I am looking at each proposal to ensure it is common sense, will be effective and will not infringe on Second Amendment rights. This plan represents a commonsense solution reached by two of my colleagues -- one a Democrat, one a Republican -- and I plan to support the bipartisan proposal.

"It respects law-abiding North Carolina gun owners by exempting transfers between family members and friends, allowing concealed carry permits issued within the last five years to serve in lieu of a background check, and explicitly banning the federal government from creating a registry."

"I am concerned that amendments banning assault weapons and high capacity magazines could infringe on the rights of lawful gun owners, and I will not support such measures."


Am I missing something here or is she just flat out lying???

True. We've seen the same thing from the sodomite agenda. If the people pass props opposing them, they go to court. If the court strikes them down, they push for another vote, or go to another court. They judge-shop and get judges who are sympathetic to them. They never stop until they get their way, then they start castigating the right for not "letting it go" and opposing the "will of the people". Like they've done with obamacare. They never never stop until they've gotten their way. They live for activism, unlike most on the right who have families to support.

I tried calling the number, but got the “All circuits are busy” intercept. I was able to reach one senator’s office (Murkowski) on the NRA-provided number I have, but could not reach our DemonRat senator, but I’ll keep trying.
