    Now the president is giving a statement with parents of the Newtown students.

    They're talking about how they're not giving up.

    This is why we can't give up.

    Feinstein AWB amendment, well and truly shut down. 40-60

    Manchin and Toomey are nays.

    Sorry if I seem ignorant on the subject, but has anything happened regarding mag capacity limits?

    Offtopic but everytime I hear "Mr Johnson of Wisconsin" I chuckle.

    Burr's amendment to protect veterans narrowly rejected 56-44.

    Big one coming up now, Blumenthal's magazine capacity ban amendment.

    If I didn't have class later tonight, I would start celebrating. Blumenthal is debating a magazine ban right now, Amendment 614.

    Now Grassley of Iowa is talking against the magazine ban. It's so normal, the pro-guns argument cites a report and facts against the bill, the anti just tries to talk about the tragedy at Newtown.

    Biden appeared to acknowledge that defeat was likely but assured supporters that victory was not lost forever.

    Like we didn't know that is the plan.

    Very nice Cmdrslander:cool:! I'm joining you as we type. The battle may be won, but the war sure is not over. It never will be.

    As an aside, you know, I find it amazing that those of us who support the 2A are now classed as a 'special interest group'. Wow.

    The AWB amendment included mag limits, but there was also a separate mag-limit-only amendment that was going to be offered.

    CoRoMo,

    Blackstone,
    I think it's currently the independent magazine ban.

    We took 6 for 6 today. I think it was a good day for us even though the fight is not over.

    Special Interest Group is just polite speak for Terrorists. This administration will stoop to new lows to vilify us. They actually put us in the same league as terrorists. We must get these criminals out of office every chance we get. I wish we could start with Bloomberg.

    I'm waiting to see what type of impeachable offense our CIC will try. Both eyes and ears open. Cloak and dagger politics are on their way.

    The war isn't over, it has just begun!

    Choke on that Obama.

    You call us a minority... take one look at gun and ammo sales and keep telling yourself that.

    The hardest days of your presidency are ahead of you. A future of failures for a failure. Thanks for nothing.
