57/43 Nat CC fails
AWB up next. I hope she gets creamed.
Obama supposed to have public address at 5:30 on all the failed gun bills on cnn...amazing since voteing isnt done. He must have a psyhic..
57 - 43 on Cornyn amendment. Failed.
Feinstein's up whining like a baby.
Cornyn failed, but got a lot more votes than I thought it would.
Feinstein now berating her colleagues, and won't even get off the podium when reminded her time has expired. "Show some guts" she cojoles her fellow Senators, but delivers a messy, emotional and factually flawed diatrabe (as usual).
Grassly rebutting, by relying on citing court precedent and noting the slippery slope from attacking the 2nd amendment to attacking the rest of the Bill of Rights.
very close on national CCW!
Keep in mind we don't care if ANY of these amendments pass because WE DONT WANT THE BILL TO PASS!
The bill is now super draconian, so having a good bill attached to it dies us no good. I do hope to see the AWB go down in flames though.
Are they voting on the whole bill today? Or just amendments?
No they will pick up in the morning
My Sen. Warner voted no. Thats... interesting.
Fienstein Amendment dies an agonizing death 40-60
40 YEA - 60 NAY. Feinstein amendment crashes and burns.
Ahhh that was satisfying.
Did I just hear it right? DiFi bill down 40-60?
I'm new to all this.
AWB goes down in flames 40-60
Is it the whole Bill, or amendments to it?
Is it dead? *pokes it with the military-style flash hider on my military-style AK*
Also, I've never been a massive fan of Richard Burr, but I have to say... I like what he said.
They are just voting on the amendments in my post #114.
Schumer arguing that it is better 100,000 veterans on NICS is good and they should be for ed to appeal if they want off the list
Currently, they are just voting on amendments; but the bill needs 60 votes to pass. Since no amendment yet has gotten 60 votes, this bill is likely dead. The White House, Bloomberg, etal are already in full hissyfit mode.
Right, AWB failed. Ms Feinstein was fussing before the vote that the amendments needed 60 vote to pass and not just a majority.
Well, her amendment did not even get the 51 votes.
Reid voted for it
I think you mean post #144.
And thank you for it, by the way.
Schumer just equated number of people on the NICS list with improvement. Not as to whether they should be there or not, but the more that we can get on there, the more gooder the system is.
Schumer up to his old tricks. Says that 130K vets will simply be removed from the restricted list, when the bill says that it will be done by a court order.
Schumer is scum I cant stand hearing him speak I feel greasy afterwards.
