Gun Background Check Plan Fails In Senate

Let the mindless hysteria commence at once! Roll Eyes

A bipartisan proposal to expand background checks to gun shows and Internet sales fails in the Senate in a 54-46 vote, in major setback for gun control push.

Why is the free lunch bunch picking on poor “Hidey?”Cry

Shortly after the vote, the Progressive Change Campaign Committee announced it would launch an ad campaign targeting Democratic senators who voted against the bill. Those included Mark Pryor, D-Ariz., Mark Begich, D-Alaska, Max Baucus, D-Mont. and Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D.

    This morning we learn of a ‘good’ citizen who has sent terroristic letters to Pres Obama and a republican senator from Missisippi . His name is Curtis and the letters were filled with the deadly poison ricin , posing a deadly threat to all those who work in the post office ,one would presume. Mr Curtis had a long history of wacko behavior , played as an Elvis ‘impersonater amoung other stuff and had many ‘issues ‘ with the Government! He was well know by all the red flags that popped up where ever he went. ( facetitious humor) . Mr Curtis is just one of the good citizens that the right and the NRA and Kev …. think does not need to be backgrounded checked!!!
    KEV Flanagan – why did this story not get your attention?
    Why don’t you check to see if that crazy nut was able to buy guns without infringement on his ‘freedoms’? Why don’t you post something that actually presents itself to the real world. Does it bother you that the NRA fought very hard to keep ‘bad guys’ like Curtis free to do whatever mischief he so pleased.
    “when guns are outlawed only outlaws will be able to get guns”

    ‘ when guns are easily available to crazies who have not yet committed their lethal but predictable crimes, THEN what?
    Good conservatism , good people , preach and practice responsibility and PREVENTION of events that can go bad , pratical avoidence of danger and evil.
    What you and the NRA and too many others are doing with this is casual acceptance of evil , because you seem to have a willingness to absorb all these calamities because ‘ freedom is messy, evil has always existed , people will die , and as long as my ‘freedom’ is not bothered ……. well ….it is no skin off your nose , you sit safely behind a dike somelse built and paid for . ,, Why should you care ?
    Why indeed!

  2. As an avid sportsmen and gunowner I am at a loss why universal background checks have not been made into law. If I want to purchase a firearm I have to pass a background check in order to do so when purchasing at a licesned dealer, But those who purchase at gun shows and privately don’t? What’s wrong with this picture? What are people so paranoid about that they don’t feel they should have to undergo a background check? To me it’s the least intrusive. Best way to keep guns out of the hands of the mentally ill. Criminals will always be able to get firearms on the black market, but the mentally ill probably not.
