Gun-Shy

Toward the end of the vote, Pryor entered the chamber through the back door, took a few steps inside, flashed a thumbs-down to the clerk, and retreated as fast and furtively as somebody dodging gunfire.

Several minutes later, the Democrats had racked up more than enough votes to block the proposal. "Are there any senators in the chamber wishing to vote or wishing to change their vote?" the presiding officer inquired.

Pryor burst back in, this time through a side door. "Mr. President!" he called out. "Mr. President!" He stopped in the well to consult with Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), a gun-control advocate who was keeping the whip sheet. Schumer gave Pryor a nod, and the Arkansan -- reassured that his vote was not needed to defeat the proposal -- changed his vote to an "aye."

On the Amendment (Thune Amdt. No. 1618 )

RINOs Lugar & Voinovich gave Pryor and another rat a FReebie on a NRA scored vote.

“The gun control advocates just don’t understand what Gillibrand is up to in Arkansas.”

Well, they must be dense. This hack is trying to keep plunger Reid as head of senate.

I hope Arkansans see right through this. Pryor is being backed by a far left dunce from New York, which says a lot about what a fraud he is. ‘Conservative democrat’... yeah right. I hope this guy loses by more than 5 points.

“None of the national controversy appeared to phase Pryor at the Remington plant Thursday.”


Don’t journalists and editors learn English anymore? The verb they were looking for is spelled “faze,” not “phase.”

“...a gun-friendly move by a gun-friendly Democrat...”

There’s no such thing.

There’s only Democrats up for Re-election in Gun States, and Democrats Who Get Elected And Then Vote for Gun Control.

They talk out of both sides of their two faces.
