    First of all Lupica is an idiot plain and simple. His argument clearly shows that he is uneducated in the most basic firearms. Second of all I keep hearing of this imploding bullet... What was she referring to exactly. I know it was a dumb statement and they dont "implode" but what type of round was she trying to claim imploded?

    With Bloomberg and Biden still pushing for the assault weapon ban, do not erect the grave stone yet.

    Remember, we are not in a short fight but a protracted war.

    Do what you can to support NRA build a war chest and vote pro second amendment candidates to win this war - http://www.nraila.org/

    This war is far from over.

    We shall never give up ... our guns.

    I agree - the AWB will continue to resurface again and again...

    I think more than anything right now we need to focus our efforts on the "universal background check", make sure our representatives know we won't tolerate this. This will do more harm to our Second Amendment Rights than an AWB.

    This wasn't Round 1. Round 1 occurred before 1994. We lost that one. This remains Round 2. This round will continue indefinitely.

    I hate to sound defeatist, but as society continues to slide further left, we may ultimately lose the fight. We have too many kids being raised in a cradle to grave society and the belief that government's job is to keep us safe and provide for us will only grow. If the November elections weren't an eye opener I don't know how else to convince you. Further, gun rights continue to be tried in the court of public opinion. This is where it is up to each of us to show we are good stewards of the Second Amendment. We must speak properly and factually. We must break the toothless redneck / crazy militia-ist persona that many anti-gun folks have of us. The better face we can put on gun ownership, the more allies we will have.

    I frequent a couple of lib Facebook pages and drop a few bombs on them every once and a while. The language too many of the posters on our side use is harsh, foul, and enhances the stereotype the antis there have of us. We must do a better job policing our own ranks or we will ultimately lose the fight.

    The bill that ONLY contained the AWB is dedsies.
    Remember that the AWB '94 FOLLOWED THE SAME PATH.
    It was then offered up as an amendment to another bill and PASSED.

    This is NO time to celebrate. If anything, we should be MORE afraid since this is the SAME thing that happened in '94!!!

    Don't be too quick to sound "Taps" over this. It's far from over.

    Keep up the good fight!

    I bet she was either referring to frangible rounds that "explode" (disintegrate) on impact or she was referring to HE rounds like 20mm and 40mm which are not available to the public anyways.

    She just isn't smart enough to know the difference between implode and explode!

    Queen of Thunder I agree, it's a trap. I just joined today so I'll be brief. I understand that this can be offered as an amendment to the bill and it requires only 50 votes to pass. In case of a tie, plugs Biden casts the tie breaker. It was being discussed last night on the local talk/news station. Keeps Harry Reid "safe" with the NRA since did not allow it in the bill but it may come up as an amendment. FWIW. Good grief.

    I liked that article. I remember when Michael Jackson was acquitted. Public opinion was that he was guilty and should be (insert terrible punishment here). A good friend of mine pointed out that we should be glad our justice system didn't respond in an emotional way. They may have gotten it wrong, but only because they couldn't prove it beyond a shadow of a doubt. That was a victory for our system.

    The same for the "assault weapons ban" The fact that it was defeated in the face of emotional outcry is a testament to the the system. It is sad so many were persuaded by emotion. That is the reason we have the Bill of Rights. A protection against emotion and political pandering.

    Yep.

    I took a little time off (a day) from letter writing (more of a break than a celebration), but this development just makes me wanna write/call my elected reps more than ever before.

    They'd better listen to us or they'll be out of a job darned soon.

    The way to beat down this anti-Second Amendment movement is to make the Democrats understand that it's a loser for them. If they are pummeled in next year's election to the point that they lose their majority in the Senate, and lose additional seats in the House, they might get the idea (at least for one or two election cycles) that gun control is a hot potato they don't want to pick up.

    If, on the other hand, the Democrat's head into Obama's last two years in control of the Senate, we'll probably trade at least one elderly left wing vote on the Supreme Court for a young, healthy one, and God forbid that one of the sane justices dies. Then we'd be faced with the inevitable demise of gun rights in this country.

    To win next year's election is going to take dedication, and lots of money. 2014 is an election that can make or break the Second Amendment.

    This scenario only applies to the Senate, where the leadership didn't think they could even get forty votes for an AWB. In the unlikely event that the Senate passed an amendment, the bill would still have to make it through the Republican-controlled House, and that won't happen.

    Though I wholeheartedly agree with those who say this is a protracted war, the AWB as it is presently conceived is almost certainly dead. Even Feinstein is saying as much.

    Some people don't seem to be able to accept victory. There will be no assault weapons ban. There will be no high cap magazine ban. There will be no ban on ammo. Some people on this board actually seem disappointed that we prevailed.

    Thuis is round three. Round two happened in 2004 when the US congress refused to extend the AWB.

    The anti-gun, anti-self defense blissninnies are having convulsions with the realization there is little chance of an AWB this year.

    YES!!!! HUGE+1.

    There are so many of us that represent us terribly, it makes me ashamed. The better we dress, more intelligently we speak, and more factually base our arguments, the better off we are.

    Harry Reid said the AWB would get less than 40 votes in the Senate. 60 votes are needed for passage in the Senate. There is zero chance the bill will even be debated in the House. That's as dead as you can get.
