    I imagine the original idea was to get gun control through the Senate and then when it failed in the house to blame everything on the republicans. In the end however, they realized they didn't have the votes in the Senate either, so they were left with no choice, but to simply look like they tried. The voting public as we all know is a bunch of puppets, so it was worth it for all involved to have the vote.

    I'm not in the court room. What am I doing is supposedly talking to a man of reason, and someone that speaks the english language.

    Sorry....but you ARE supposedly discussing whether a restriction would pass Constitutional muster. I'm sorry if you failed to realize that. Carry on with your base level discussion. If you wanna play with the big boys, pick up a textbook and come back.

    These big boys you talk of are dishonest assholes that ignore basic logic to grow the power of the state. I expect that thinking men and women would know better than to simply be a puppet to such nonsense. The rules of english dictate that absolute language is absolute. Anyone that says otherwise is either being dishonest or they are stupid.

    some recent murder stats....Keep spinning it mate.

    In the US – population 311.5 million (1) – there were an estimated 13,756 murders in 2009 (2), a rate of about 5.0 per 100,000 (3). Of these 9,203 were carried out with a firearm.

    In the UK – population 56.1 million (4) – there were an estimated 550 murders in 2011-12 (5), a rate of about 1.4 per 100,000. Of these 39 were carried out with a firearm


    p.s our violent crime rate is measured very differently to Americas.

    I believe many people in the US saw this bill as a step in the right direction and a compromise, from what I read no one was saying it was going to stop mass shootings but it would of got the ball moving in some peoples eyes. The fact that this bill was shot down just confirms to me that the right are unwilling to even to meet the left anywhere near the middle and nothing will ever change in the US. Its sad for people like my wife's family who's opinion and views get ignored under the weight of the NRA and their millions of dollars.

    I was just wondering, has there been any project/issue that VP Biden has been put in charge of over the past 4 plus years that has actually been successful?
