Harry Reid opens door to
Senate gun control debate

Politico, by Manu Raju

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/17/2012 3:29:49 PM

With pressure building from Democrats, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid opened the door Monday for legislative action on gun control in the wake of the deadly massacre at a Connecticut elementary school last week. While he said “no one law” or policy can stop a “determined madman,” Reid argued that Washington is “not doing enough” to protect the public from tragic episodes like the one that unfolded in Newtown, Conn. where 20 children and six adults were murdered by an armed assailant. “In the coming days and weeks, we’ll engage in a meaningful conversation

You can´t help but note how quickly the vile Reid pounces on this issue and yet he hasn´t found the time in almost four years to produce a budget. They obviously have their priorities and none of them are beneficial to us.

This is what the NRA gets for endorsing this POS.

I guess they want another Revolution, because that is precisely what they will get if they keep pushing this envelope.

During the August 1966 massacre at the Texas University Tower, civilians armed with their own rifles helped local police to keep the shooter, Charles Whitman, from getting clear shots from the observation deck. Whitman killed over a dozen people, wounded more than thirty, and would have shot more if he had not been forced to take cover on that deck.

There will NOT be gun control. Does anyone think that ANY DEMOCRAT in a state that likes to hunt, will vote for it? No! Joe Manchin won´t either because WV will throw him out next time around and he knows it. How about MI Senators? Michiganders LOVE to hunt! Nope! I don´t see gun control coming to the floor anytime soon.

You cannot deal with liberals on any kind of gun control. They are not honest partners. They will lie. They will cheat. They will claim one thing and do another. They will abuse their power. They will find some way to use any gun legislation to buy votes and undermine the Constitution. And THAT is why there connot be any meaningful conversation on gun legislation.

#12 is correct, and I would add that the Texas Rangers who responded had 30/30 Winchester rifles, not so good for long range shooting, and a male student gave the rangers his scoped deer rifle to use. It worked.
The shooter, by the way, was being seen at the Counseling Center, and he was alarmed by his own peculiar behavior and thoughts. Told the counselor that he, Whitman, believed he had a brain tumor.
When they did an autopsy on Whitman, he was proven to be correct. He had a malignant brain tumor.

I let my NRA membership lapse after they failed to make an endorsement the last time Stinky Reid was up for re-election. In the same issue of their monthly magazine where they made endorsements, they had an article imploring their members to vote against senators that would approve anti-gun Supreme Court Justices. They made no endorsement in Reid´s race. This was after Stinky Reid voted for The Wise Latina and Kagan. The NRA lost a 25 year member over that, but the country lost a lot more.

This is why, regardless of the real or imagined faults of folks like Sharron Angle, Todd Akin, or Richard Mourdock, they needed to be supported by ALL the Republican and pro-2nd amendment voters of their states.

So now, we have Dingy Harry in office until 2017 and Clare McCaskill (whose hubby will continue to close his business deals in the Senate dining room) and whoever got elected in Indiana until 2019. Ditto Fauxahontas in Mass.

Just like Charlie Brown and the football, we fall for the "let´s act like we´re pro-gun and responsible around election time, because then we´ll have 5 years to do whatever we want and tell the stupid sheep back home to stuff it where the sun don´t shine because they´ll forget it next election cycle."

Those Democrats will double cross the NRA and gun owners in a minute.

Notice that they used to call for banning guns that they used to call "assault rifles" but are now calling for banning guns that they now call "assault weapons" that will have a much broader definition encompassing all semi-automatic rifles and handguns that can possibly accept either a clip or a magazine that can hold over 10 rounds of ammunition. That´s just about all semi-automatic rifles and handguns in use today. So if you have such a gun and you die, nobody else, like your heirs, would be able to possess those rifles and handguns, and since they could not be sold, it appears that they would be subject to government confiscation.

Elections definitely have consequences and all those millions of conservatives who simply stayed home rather then vote for a Mormon left the barn door wide open for the anti-gun people and they are getting ready to drive right on through.

Most of the criminals with guns did not buy them legally or register them.

The gun ban in Chicago left law bidding citizens unarmed and defenseless. How many shootings have they had this year ?

Several years ago it seemed every gun shop in the area along with high powered guns in police cars were stolen. The following year there were dozens of armed robberies. The police just couldn´t understand where the guns came from.

President Obama will host at least six fundraisers for Senate Democrats ahead of the 2014 midterm elections, a Democratic aide said Monday. The president´s commitment comes after he huddled last week in the Oval Office with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee Chairman Michael Bennet (D-Colo.) and DSCC Executive Director Guy Cecil. According to Politico, which first reported the fundraisers, the fundraising appearances will include trips to New York and the Washington suburbs in the "coming weeks."

Yet the more evidence that rolls in condemning the president´s "signature achievement" -- wouldn´t you love to have that albatross hung around your epitaph? -- the more entrenched Obama becomes, making clear that his heart is not with the American people or their needs but stubbornly fixated on self. His singular goal is not to provide "affordable health care" but to slay those who are trying to take his "baby" away from him, with the deranged obsession

In 2012, President Obama established a program known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).

On May 12, 1992, Stan Greenberg and Celinda Lake, top pollsters for Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign, issued a confidential memo. The memo’s subject was “Research on Hillary Clinton.” Voters admired the strength of the Arkansas first couple, the pollsters wrote. However, “they also fear that only someone too politically ambitious, too strong, and too ruthless could survive such controversy so well.” Their conclusion: “What voters find slick in Bill Clinton, they find ruthless in Hillary.” The full memo is one of many previously unpublished documents contained in the archive of one of Hillary Clinton’s best friends and advisers, documents that

Their research shows that trade winds in central and eastern parts of the Pacific have caused warm surface water to sink to the ocean´s depths, reducing the amount of heat in the atmosphere.
