Six months since the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., parents of some of the youngest victims plan to visit Capitol Hill again this week to meet with lawmakers about crafting a bill to impose stricter gun laws.
Gun-control groups are scheduling the parents to attend another round of meetings and other public events including a reading of the names of people killed by guns since the Newtown shooting in a push to restart debate on the issue sometime in the coming months.
But try as they might, prospects for a new gun-control bill appear to be no better than in April, when the Senate swiftly defeated a bipartisan gun-control bill and delivered an embarrassing defeat to President Obama. Plus, with the Senate already scheduled to spend most of June debating a bipartisan immigration overhaul bill, theres little room for discussion of other issues.
On Monday, Vice President Biden normally ebullient when discussing the administrations priorities seemed less than certain that gun-control will return to the fore in the Senate...
Dan Gross, president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, said Monday that the lack of permanent leadership at the ATF has gone on far too long, depriving the bureau of the stable leadership and the focus to carry out its vital missions including preventing violent crime....

“duh legalize them watch how fast they become lazy and welfare dependent”
I’m with you, but the IDIOT business owners don’t see that. And it works in reverse - pull the ‘benefits’ and people will find work, and very quickly - because there is ALWAYS well-paying work out there - it’s just that you have to get your hands dirty or be tired when you get home.
Thanks for the ping!

“Enter the Illegals, who show up for work, dont complain, and usually do a really good job”
Agreed. I know a lot of fabric district owners who say the same thing. My former boss who relocated back to canada for 10 years was impressed at the work ethic of illegals. As long as you pay them..
ALL of those business owners, however, have an extremely low opinion of blacks. The most common description I heard was lazy’. Here near Skid Row, the mexicans also have a low opinion of them too.
Liberals are irrational, emotional and ignorant.
We know that the Right doesn’t think the ATF is doing it’s job correctly and now it appears that the Left believes the same. How about we just shut ‘er down?
Given the levels of abortion in America, ‘the parents of the dead children’ extends well beyond just the Sandy Hook parents.
Also, what about the parents of living children whose lives were saved by guns?
One of the problems with liberals is their single entry accounting practices when it comes to public policy. I mean if we were talking about Dr. Adam Lanza, abortionist, would this even be an issue?
You mean like the one that’s being brainwashed/intimidated as we speak. Every suspension/punishment of a kindergardener sends a clear message to the other kiddies and their messed up parents too:
We will have gun control and you’ll vote your liberty away. We will not waste 13 years of mind control. You’ll vote our way or else we’ll withhold your transcripts.
Their actions almost make you want to puke.
It would seem like there are a certain number of such traitors to liberty than dont care about anything larger than themselves.
It’s the only issue they haven’t won on. Once their new voters are in place, they will have the Democrat numbers and the legislative means to take our guns too.
“...Gun control groups plan to try, try again...”
And we will fight them forever...again and again and again.
You lost you moron. Concealed Carry is even coming to Illinois now, the last of the last free fire zone for crazies.
And best of all, that includes Chicago. Your fascist buds couldn't stop it. The Bill is Veto Proof and Gov Potato Head has only until July 8th to sign it -- or -- worse for you quacks (ha-ha) -- Constitutional Carry becomes the law in the land in Illinois; No Permit Required Anywhere!
So give it up you sick Hoplophobes.
