    Re: "Assault Weapons" Ban shot down in Senate

    Who could possibly be surprised by this? I posted the day after the massacre of the infants in Connecticut that nothing would be done legislatively, because the NRA sets gun policy in this country, and the NRA has been taken over by survivalists and the black helicopter crowd.

    Nothing to see here. Just move along.

    So was the NRA OK with banning so called assault weapons before it was taken over as you put it?

    Wasn't aware that the NRA had so much sway over Senate Democrats.

    Absolutely, they do. The NRA has been taken over by the black helicopter and survivalist crowd, i.e., senate democrats. Who knew? Before that it was populated with normal folks.

    Heh. Spoken like a true conspiracy theorist. I, of course, am not a conspiracy theorist, which proves that I likely am one. What recording devices? It's a toaster.

    I agree, although being from California I would imagine the majority of Californians are for the ban.

But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    That would have been my first thought as well had Reid not been re-elected in 2010 and not due for re-election until 2016. And is my belief plans not to rerun then.

    What Reid did was almost a foregone conclusion in as his intent was/is to protect the Dem caucus. One third of the Senate are up for re-election in 2014 and many of those are Dems. The whole Bill would have been doomed for failure with Feinstein’s AWB incorporated. By removing from the main Bill structure and offering as an amendment allows the Dems an opportunity to vote ‘yes’ for the rest of the mess that looks much more benign by comparison. Enabling the Dems to then vote against the AWB amendment with the hopes of preserving their seat in 2014 and retaining majority.

    Reid learned a lot from the 2010 election when he forced every Democrat in the Senate to vote for Obamacare regardless of that their state or constituents wishes were. He lost 6 senate seats and by the grace of god, or the GOP in nominating two idiotic candidates in Angle and O'Donnell that turn two wins into loses or the GOP could have picked up 8 seats. One of them being Reid's.
