Exactly, re the counterattack. Instead of our leaders wiping their brows and saying "Whew that was a close one", they need be to be ready immediately this is done to go on the offensive-showing how guns save lives, showing the murder rates amongst those who obtained their guns illegally, and most of all, showing how cutting the Second Amendment into pieces Always means that we don't get all the pieces back once they're done. They need to show how the Second Amendment is of one piece, which says, unequivocally, that government shall make NO laws infringing upon our rights to keep and bear arms. That doesn't mean a "right to hunt". They need to return gun rights to most felons. Those with criminal intent will get them anyway, and those who have rehabilitated or weren't the for violent crimes should have the same rights to defend themselves and their family as other citizens. The government turns a blind eye to blatant scoff-laws-illegal immigrants-when they do so.

So we musn’t get complacent, not for a second. They’ll be back for round 6003, and each time they work the propaganda on the sheeple until their polls are finally accurate in their favor.


Maybe, but you can only push the proverbial uphill for so long. Eventually it must smother you. I truly believe that the progressives have hurt themselves for a hundred years. A hundred years if we can find just one good Conservative leader. Someone to keep this ball rolling. If we can get it rolling fast enough with enough mass, no damn liberal will dare stand in its way. America is not over

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.

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!

as well as create a commission to study the causes of mass violence in the U.S.

Evil. It's called having an evil heart and mind.

A commission. Sheesh.

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 the socialists/democrats never keep trying to enslave us.that's all they've tried to do for 100 years.it's their main goal to empower government and at the same time take away our individual rights and freedom.

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.
