    On Monday last Eric Holder was confirmed in the U.S. Senate by a roll call vote of 75 to 21 with 3 "not voting" (no, I don't know how that works). Since there are fewer than 75 Democrats in the Senate self-evidently more than a couple of Republicans plus the lone independent voted in favor of the confirmation. In fact no Democrats voted AGAINST Holder.

    Here is a link to the results of the confirmation vote:
    http://www.senate.gov/legislative/L...ote_cfm.cfm?congress=111&session=1&vote=00032

    If you are represented by someone who voted to confirm arguably the most anti-RKBA AGUS in history I would respectfully suggest you write your Senator(s) to express your satisfaction/dissatisfaction with their vote. BTW, my two Senators, Cornyn and Hutchinson both voted against him. Cornyn was one of only two in the judiciary committee who voted against him there.

    Remind these folks that people who take the time to write are also people who take time to vote in off-year elections. As they say in the Spainish-speaking community "su voto es su voz" - "your vote is your voice".

    We need to hold these people accountable. We need to let them know where we stand. If it truely is the squeaky wheel that gets greased then we need to squeak loudly indeed.

    Mine performed as expected. What a shame. Arkansas' own Lincoln and Pryor.

    Too bad the senior Senator from Arizona forgot to pack his gumption for the vote, too.

    Tennessee's two Republicans (Alexander and Corker) both let me down.

    I am especially disappointed in Lamar. :(

    Both Issakson and Casey of Georgia voted to confirm.

    I'm sending a VERY strong letter to each, and advertising the facts on our 735-member gun club bulletin board...

    Oregon here!

    Both Democrats voted for him! No surprise there. I wish someone with good legaleze writing skills would draft a formal letter template that we could all forward to these spineless wimps!

    Both Virginia senators, Mark Warner and Jim Webb, voted yea. I wrote to both asking for their support. Never got a reply from Webb but Warner did send me a rather sarcastic reply which I have since deleted.

    it's a tough call.

    Barry will keep on tossing anti-gun Attorney Generals at us, no matter how many we get our congresscritters to vote down.

    I think we are better off to hold their feet to the fire on ACTUAL LAWS. These may be laws aimed at curtailing the power of the AG, or directly related to RKBA.

    I'm happy to say that both of my senators voted no. They heard from me also.

    I'm not going to base whether or not they get my vote on this.

    Do you really think Obama would pick someone who's pro-gun even if he couldn't get this idiot? He's the most anti-gun president in history.

    My senator, A Specter, is apparantly a RINO. And what's worse, his site is now disabled to make it harder for people to complain. Say...isn't he up for election seen?

    Our Senators from SD split, Thune voted no and Johnson voted yes. Of course I voted against Johnson in the last election and I personally don't believe he was re-elected. The man had a stroke during his last term and spent a long time in the hospital, there is nothing wrong with that and I am in no way saying one way or the other rather his brain recovered completely or not but his comunication skills are terrible now. His speech is slow and broken and I guess I fail to see how he can be an effective representitive of this state comunicating our veiws and needs to congress when he can barely hold a legible conversation.

    Not surprised Virginia's Webb and Warner voted,"yea". They still will never get my Vote. Warner was suppose to be a fiscal whiz and voted for the Porkulus Bill too. I have no faith in 1st and 2nd Amendment Rights from either of these two. I will continue to Call,write and e-mail the stuffings out of them.

    Two Nays from Texas, no surprise there.

    But, he's in so now the job is to minimize the damage he can cause.
