Is this credible? The media can’t seem to get anything right today.

There has been a literal non-stop pummeling since late December. And we still prevailed. They shot their wad, and we still prevailed.

My prediction - all amendments will FAIL regardless of which side sponsors them. The issue has completely polarized the votes in the Senate so no gun conrol bill will emerge from the kabuki theater being put on by Obama and Reid.

when Clintoon took office and both houses were in rat control, he tried at that time to shove Hilliarycare down our throats....as well as more gun control.....despite being weak, our side WON....

can we take solace and pride and encouragement form what happened today?....I think so

We celebrate the battle victory briefly and then we must get back to the war on the 2nd Amendment.

If Reid voted for it, he cannot reintroduce it.

after Boston this didn’t have a chance. Trying to restrict American’s rights to defend themselves after a terrorist attack where people are blown apart is just not going to fly.

I’m not celebrating yet. Reid may find a way to make this a simple majority vote and ram it through somehow.

And come the mid-term election there'll be hell to pay for the RINOs that turned on us...

No worries, the man-child in the WH will do it through executive order. To paraphrase, It’s always tempting for him to just do things on his own.

“And come the mid-term election there’ll be hell to pay for the RINOs that turned on us...”

Yup. McCain and Collins were a given to be for it. Toomey was talked into “bipartisanship” and now he’ll never be trusted again. The same with Rubio on Immigration.

Slo Joe Biden was presiding and got to announce the 54-46 result. He was there to celebrate the big gun-grabbing vote and instead looked like he was going to hurl. Joe, it IS a big f’n deal.

Rat bastard McCain voted for it. It’s damn near impossible to get through to his offices. I did get through to his Prescott Az off ice and gave them hell.

Toomey’s was only one of 14 amendments to S.649. I would like to see a tally of all of the amendments. The first four included Feinstein’s ban on semi-automatic pistols and rifles, and Lautenberg’s ban on magazines over 10 rounds. Also, are they still going to be able to pass the base S.649 without the amendments???? I want to see 100% failure to pass anything restricting the 2nd Amendment.

Grassley Amendment just failed 52-48. 2/8 Amendments down, 6 to go. Leahy still whining. Harry Reid on phone with Obama discussing either a black flag operation or “nuclear option” to deem it “passed”.
