The Senate delivered a devastating blow to President Obamas agenda to regulate guns Wednesday by defeating a bipartisan proposal to expand background checks. It failed by a vote of 54 to 46, with 5 Democrats voting against it. Only 4 Republicans supported it. Democratic Sens. Mark Pryor (Ark.), Max Baucus (Mont.), Heidi Heitkamp (N.D.), Mark Begich (Alaska) and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (Nev.) voted against it. Reid supported the measure but voted against it to preserve his ability to bring the measure up again. GOP Sens. John McCain (Ariz.), Susan Collins (Maine), Pat Toomey (Pa.) and Mark Kirk

Thanks, I need to go over there and offer my input too!
There’s a mistake in your graphic. Those are all AK-47 assault rifles.
POTUS, Bengazi Obama = “The New Lame Duck POTUS”!!! End of story!!!
Unchecked, unmonitored, mental illness is the problem, not guns!!! Obama lives in a failed presidency!!!
Oopps; felons if they’re (not their) caught again.
Now watch how Mr Zero will use that point 08, the arbitrary ammount declaring a driver “alcohol impared” which is not a law but a USDOT regulation backed up by federal road funding.Which later worked its way into your state laws.
Obama will use that principle for an edict on (BTW Reuters is right their style book calls it a “military style” weapon (rifle) not an) assault rifles.
I suppose the best thing to come out of this fuster cluck is ole Plug's suggestion that we get a shotgun. Here's my recommendation - Mossberg 590-A1:
She has perfect cosmetic features, as you can tell by her high cheekbones and slim waist and gorgeous hips, and Cabelas carries them at a very reasonable price.
Now, one nice bonus of this anti-constitutinal common-sense horse pucky hitting the storm drain is that mags and ammo should become plentiful once again, now that Joe American isn't grabbing everything in sight due to impending tyranny (not that we can let down our guard now). Maybe CCI Stingers will show up at WalMart in the not so distant future for the paper puncher crowd, 9mm's for the armed soccer moms, and 10mm's and .45's for the sheepdawgs amongst us. Time to a bit of pre-ordering with MagPul as well, for, if nothing else, telling Calirado to stuff it.
we can try.
“They trot out tragic victims to get emotional responses instead letting people vote their logical choices.”
It’s time to confront these so-called victims. They trusted a corrupt and uncaring government to protect their children. They failed as parents to protect their children.
They thought, incorrectly, that their children were safe in the care of leftists who couldn’t care less about their children. The fault of their dead children lies solely with them as parents and their inability to accept their responsibility to safeguard their children.
And no way in hell am I giving my weapons to protect my children. You had the responsibility to protect your children, and you failed. I won’t fail my children.
Shoot fast, shoot straight, shoot safe. Practice. Carry. Glock Rocks.
There will still be a very high demand on guns & ammo. People can still smell something in the air.
...the pathetic pandering of Zeros minions to take advantage of tragedies has worn out its welcome.
Don’t get too optimistic. We won this skirmish, but there are still an awful lot of stupid voters out there.
Good name for them!
Thank you for that explanation.
Bastard. What did your Mother teach you about sharing?! I can cleanse you conscience with the receipt of a couple of those full boxes. ;)
That’s how close the margin was?
