    Battle is won. We need to clean gear and resupply for the next one.

    Great news. Enjoy it for a minute, but don't let up.
    Continue to support the NRA and stay in contact with representatives at the least inkling of a gun control bill.
    We can't get complacent.

    We've went over this before. Executive action cannot make new laws. He can't just decide to institute universal background checks or assault weapons bans.

    Interesting, Reid voted no. Pretty much all of the Dems on the fence look to have voted no.

    THEY ARE VOTING ON THE AWB NOW.

    the scum that vote for this in particular are the ones we need to oust in 2014.

    Funny CoRoMo. No Wally worlds in my neck of the woods have any of consequence.

    McCain voted for the amendment. Feinstein is speaking now. She needs to get here facts straight if she wants to fight crime.

    I just saw that Reid had voted "No" to the background check amendment. This corrects what I just posted.

    Thanks for the CSPAN link, I've been listening to the proceedings. They are now voting on the universal carry amendment. Schumer is such a tool, his emotionally based plea against the amendment was rife with ridiculous falsehoods... Something about universal carry law giving weapons to criminals...

    :rolleyes:

    So I'm confused about proceedings. The Cornyn amendment proposes reciprocal carry. Why bother trying to add this very pro-gun amendment into a bill that is overall anti?

    Let freedom ring my friends!

    Now, that's one battle. We have a long way to go, and when this nonsense dies down again, let's put the pressure on our reps to push something we want.

    But what's this I read about Reid voting NO so as to have the ability to bring it up again?

    Poison pill.

    On the off chance it all passed any anti-gunner that voted yea for the overall bill would have to own allowing Texans and Kansans carry on the streets of New York and San Francisco. The very prospect of it terrifies them.

    I'm trying to find the reference to the rules, but it has something to do with a motion to reconsider being raised by someone from the losing side.

    We have to keep the pressure up through 2014. This, I fear, is only the beginning.

    Voting them out may buy us another good 10 - 15 years, just like '94 did.
    A good reminder.....

    Yeah, but our very own McCaskill voted for it.

    CmdrSlander, let's not forget.....
