The Feinstein Amendment to ban 157 semi-automatic weapons and high (regular) capacity magazines has massively failed 60-40.
So we musnt get complacent, not for a second. Theyll be back for round 6003, and each time they work the propaganda on the sheeple until their polls are finally accurate in their favor.
I expect it. We need to counter that by showing the high gun homicide rates in places like Chicago where the majority of gun crimes were committed by criminals who couldn’t have passed present checks. We need to show how honest citizens have used their guns to protect their wives and families. They can’t expect the MSM to carry their water, it won’t happen. The politicians are going to have to go around the media as best they can and make these points directly to Americans.
You are exactly right they never give up. It is good to see things like global warming, abortion, and gun control shaping up fairly well in our direction even though we have tough fights like this and will continue to. I also believe we will succeed in holding the line on the gay issue it is tougher because they so often succeed in shutting down the conversation with Political Correctness however that tool is a dangerous one to wield and is not popular at all with the public and I believe it will be their undoing especially if conservative media gets off its bottom and keeps highlighting when the draconian though police are about. I remember during the 90s when this kind of gun control would’ve made it through congress fairly easily so that is comforting. I fully expected this to pass. Its great that it didn’t.
What a whiney diatribe by the POtuS.
and Bald face lie! 90% of the people supported these bills!
He overeaches - 90% of the people know that’s a lie.
he’l losing credibility now with his own base -
The magazine ammendment went down 46-54.
Yeppers. Like what Odumbo once said: “get in their faces” (no matter how ugly these libtards are)
Obama is crying like a little bitch
Thank you Republicans for standing strong for freedom and our gun rights
The amendment DIed and that’s Fein by me!
Toomey that is good.
Roll Call - Feinstein Amendment to S.649
It’s not that we had a right to arms (that is, we needed the Constitution to allow us to have them). It’s that the government never had the right to take them from us!
Evil. It's called having an evil heart and mind.
A commission. Sheesh.
Thank you Republicans for standing strong , for protecting our 2nd amendment gun rights and our freedom
Never ever let your guard down...the LIB-Commie cabal will never stop trying to take your freedom.
I think that they (we) have to go even further in that the politicians behind these hideous and naked attempts to cow a free people have to be exposed and relentlessly pursued using every type of media platform available.
I mean politicians and their coat holders at every level; federal, state and local.
This means that you and I and every free American don’t just talk to each other about it, we proclaim over and over again it to anybody within earshot.
We, all of us, must stop being afraid of the other side, that somehow we lose our credibility if we forcefully argue.
They count on that and when we do fight back, they will say , “Ah hah, see, we told you how (fill in the blank) they are.”
It’s like taunting the dog, getting bitten and then blaming the dog.
It’s time to bite. 2014 is coming up and this is where the totalitarian toads must find themselves looking for work in the real world that they are responsible for making.
I’m off the rant now.
I know this is not the lord of the rings but: A day may come when they enslave us but it is not this day.
today is a great victory for freedom. Thank you Republican Senators for standing for freedom. today belongs to us that believe in liberty
Good news for a change. I agree as to staying awake. The left never gives up. They take their marching orders from Lenin: “Two steps forward,one step back.” Something devilish will be presented in the near future.
No. She and her ilk live in terror due to the fact the citizenry has guns. They know that someday citizens could come for them.
