Assault Weapons Ban Lacks
Democratic Votes to Pass Senate

Bloomberg, by Heidi Przybyla & Julie Hirschfeld Davis

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 1/25/2013 5:17:37 PM

A proposed ban on sales of assault weapons would be defeated in the U.S. Senate today unless some members changed their current views, based on a Bloomberg review of recent lawmaker statements and interviews. At least six of the 55 senators who caucus with Democrats have recently expressed skepticism or outright opposition to a ban, the review found. That means Democrats wouldn’t have a simple 51-vote majority to pass the measure, let alone the 60 votes needed to break a Republican filibuster to bring it to a floor vote. A ban on the military-style weapons is among the

This is only a temporary delay for the Little Dictator. There are other ways to bypass the Constitution, and they will take those paths.

They´ll ban firearms via regulations, ergo, the article about Geico refusing to issue car insurance to gun owners or affiliates of gun mfg´s. Someone smarter than I needs to file a class action lawsuit on behalf of all gun owners.

For only today Bloomberg posits that Democrats won´t pass it, informally polling and guessing the rest.

Tomorrow is another day. When the arms are twisted off and a few personal scandals are threatening them, or their family, they will be extorted and will be coming around.

The extortables are the type they support and want in high office.

Everyone in the Senate should be opposed to such a bill if they were living up to the oaths they took. It´s a disgrace that the vote would be that close.

McConnell needs to get this to a vote ASAP with Democrats voting first, and no Republican voting until all Democrats are on record.

Hey this is great, Democrat leadership! Promise that the GOP will allow both the gun ban and the Obama budget to get to the floor of the Senate for a vote. Then vote present until all the Democrats have voted. It may even be worthwhile to let the budget actually get 51 votes so it can go to reconciliation with the House approved budgets. Just think of the Won having to veto a budget.

This draconian "assault weapons" ban is a red herring. Of course it won´t pass; it wasn´t supposed to pass.

Now the Senate is going to have to *do* something. So they´ll stiffen background check requirements. They´ll ´close the gun show loophole´. They´ll maybe demand that some weapons be registered.

Everything proposed will (almost by definition) be more "reasonable" than Feinstein´s ban, and thus will be harder to oppose.

Didn´t we hear the same thing about Obamacare and yet enough arms were twisted and goodies passed out to pass it? Obama will "find" the votes. Count on it. Gun control is their Holy Grail and the rest of their agenda depends on. It will pass and then when the government comes for our guns, Obama will put the hammer down. Well, at least that was the nightmare I had last night. Whew, that was a little unsettling. After all, that could never happen in this country, right?

"What difference does it make?"

We can play that game too with this illegal, no-accountability government. We will not comply, register or give up anything because the whole concept is unconstitutional. If the dumb dems vote the wrong way, they will realize their mistake when the door-to-door operations start and they realize who holds the real power.

Let the Senate Democrats pass the ban. Get them on record. Then shoot it down in the House, and leave the stink on the Dems for the 2014 election. I say, contact the wavering Senators and tell them you´re a red-fanged gun owner, and you want them to vote for the ban. See if they can process that.

If only I thought our politicians were, in their hearts and minds, doing the right thing and upholding our Constitution, this would comfort me. Alas, I think the majority of those creatures don´t even know what that wonderful document is. It is for some other reason they won´t vote for it. Perhaps a few are afraid of what their voters might do. At least THAT part of our system is working the way the founding fathers intended, sometimes.

Easy peasy. Promise the 6 or 7 they need prestigious administration positions or appointments if they commit political suicide and vote for it. Run lying candidates in their places next year who swear they would have voted against it and campaign as fiscal conservatives who aren´t party hacks at all dontchaknow.

Democrats quit caring about the truth and doing the right thing a long long time ago.

Don´t trap yourselves in the old paradigm; a majority did not want Ophonecare, but it was passed illegally by the senate. Anything failed by votes will be outlawed under emergency decree because "it´s too important to wait for congress to act."

EOs will be writen and congress dared to reject them.

The way to deal with the registration issue is to apply the same rules to anyone who pays for someone who will be armed in their presence. They should go into a searchable data base. They should get a psychiatric evaluation.

The gun culture is a respected, important part of America, like the small plane flying culture, like the hunting culture, like the fly fishing culture, like the old ham radio culture, like the hot rod culture, the Harley culture, the country music culture, it is rock solid imbedded in all of our every day lives. And we all know we would prefer to have an armed next door neighbor, than a dis-armed no guns thank you neighbor, simply for our own family´s added protection. Not even a democrat who practices and spouts communism in his greed built soft job in Washington, wants to vote against the most solid culture in his voting constituency. Even a stupid commie democrat KNOWS he cannot destroy his voters support with this gun banning trash. Diane Feinstein, gun toting Feinstein is the most ridiculous hypocrit of them all. She is sbsurd, stupidly contradicting herself thinking she can ditch her own gun collection and create a last minute gun destroying band wagon. Is she totally nuts? Throw her out of office!

#11 nails it. The AW Ban is the distraction, the magician´s hand that you are supposed to stay focussed on, while he picks your pocket with the other.

They only need to keep taking nibbles out of our rights, and doing "reasonable" restrictions. We now have 25,000 nibbles out of our rights.

We HAVE TO stop the "gun show loophole" lie, THIS IS UNIVERSAL GUN REGISTRATION.

This has been their HOLY GRAIL for the last 50 years, and they are using the AW Ban as a stalking horse to get gun registration.
If private sales are illegal, eventually ALL guns will be illegal or registered.
Then they can tax and confiscate at will.

As long as guns are freely bought and sold without government permission and controls, we are free people. Once this is gone it is gone FOREVER.

Here is the hang up that the liberal Democrats have to get through in order to pass their gun ban. The Democrats have to defend 20 Senate seats in the election next year plus all their seats in the House of Representatives. If the Senate votes on the gun ban those 20 Democrat Senators who are up for re-election, a few may retire, will have to show their hand, and if they vote for the gun ban some of them will not be re-elected you can bet on that. The Democrats also want to levy a $200.00 tax on each gun already owned by law abiding Americans, if you own 10 guns you get to pay a $2,000.00 tax, that´s going to go over like a lead balloon. So unless in looks like the Democrats have the votes to also pass their gun ban in the House of Representatives, it is doubtful that the Democrats will show their hand in the Senate by voting for a gun ban that will not pass the House. Since the House is controlled by the Republicans it is very doubtful that any such over reaching Democrat gun ban bill could pass there. You can safely bet that any Republican who would vote for such a bill will be opposed in the next Republican primaries with a lot of them becoming unelectable in the following general election. So no matter what the Obama propaganda machine pumps out, the Democrats getting any sort of a gun ban through the Congress is a steep uphill battle that just gives Obama the opportunity to travel outside Washington, DC and politically posture against the Republicans. That does not mean that everybody should not pay attention, and certainly should make their views known to their congressional representatives.

Monday night, MSNBC’s Chris Hayes used an essay on Slate about the Bundy Ranch standoff and race as a jumping off point to discuss how this story would be different if rancher Cliven Bundy’s armed supporters were black. “When is it that people take up arms against the federal or state government, point their arms at federal agents and face no consequence for it?” Hayes asked. “The answer is to that is hardly ever.” Hayes went on to imagine how Fox News react to the New Black Panthers if they decided to “greet law enforcement with long guns.” Or what if the

BUNKERVILLE, Nev. — Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says “something is going to happen” to get Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy to stop letting his cattle graze on federal land. “It’s obvious that you can’t just walk away from this. And we can speculate all we want to speculate to what’s going to happen next,” Reid told KSNV-TV. “But I don’t think it’s going to be tomorrow that something is going to happen, but something will happen. We are a nation of laws, not of men and women.” Reid called militias staying at Bundy’s Bunkerville ranch “domestic violent terrorist-wannabes.” Sen. Dean Heller, R-Nev.,

Attorney General Eric Holder criticized drug sentences doled out under “the old regime” in a video Monday announcing the Obama administration’s “Clemency Project 2014.” “In 2010, President Obama signed the Fair Sentencing Act reducing unfair disparities in sentences imposed on people for offenses involving different forms of cocaine. But there’s still too many people in federal prison who were sentenced under the old regime and who, as a result, will have to spend far more time in prison than they would if sentenced today for exactly the same crime. This is simply not right,” Holder says in the video. President Obama could

He supports medical futility. I oppose it. We went from there.

Corruption: The senator who once guarded funding for a cowboy poetry festival in his home state now thinks those who stand in the way of his family´s increasing fortunes for defending their land are domestic terrorists. Cliven Bundy now finds himself being called a "domestic terrorist" for disputing the payment of grazing fees to a federal government he believes does not or at least should not own the 84% of Nevada that his cattle graze upon. "Those people who hold themselves out to be patriots are not. They´re nothing more than domestic terrorists," said Sen. Harry Reid last Thursday. "I repeat: What

It was this editorial and as many as 100 more like it in IBD that helped spare the nation the tragedy that would have been HillaryCare.

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.
