    I suppose my answer there showed some of the cynicism in me. I wonder how many senators or congressmen for that mater would vote their convictions if they knew they would be defeated in the next election because of it? Personally, I do not think many. But again, I am nothing but an old cynic.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. 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.

    I don't know that there will necessarily be a connection, but I believe there will be some who look at the murder of the head of the Colorado Prison system yesterday and the horror on the face of the Governor of Colorado as a bit of a warning not to be too cavalier in their approach to gun control and infringements on real or perceived 2nd amendment rights.

    You also have Governor Cuomo in New York indicating that their newly adopted gun control laws, barely a couple of months old, are being revised at this time.

    The awb was a long shot anyway. But the democrats line in the sand should be on background checks. If that does not pass then I guess this headline will prove true

    I take it you're not referring to your comment.

    Re: "Assault Weapons" Ban shot down in Senate

    I never understood the inclusiong of both an assault weapons ban and a magazine size restriction. It always seemed redundant to me. An AR-15 with a 10 or 15 round clip is not an assault weapon by any definition I can think of.

    If I had to choose one or the other, I would gladly give up the assault weapons ban, since there won't be assault weapons sold considering the magazie size would preclude any weapons from being assault weapons.

    Flurries at the moment, but we are predicted to get four to six inches of snow. Cleveland, which is about 40 miles from us, was told to expect a foot of snow, but they are closer to Lake Erie than we are, and I don't know if it's occuring yet, or if it's on the way....sigh...

    Great.Hopefully it states down. Obama still has four more years and anti-2nd amendment scum will continue to get elected to office.So we have to remain vigilant against these anti-2nd amendment scum.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    If not ...we will resort to post #6 of this thread.
