It is indeed a great victory for America but it is also only one battle.  The POTUS has a track record of losing the early rounds to then later comeback to win.  Can't explain it but it has to end before this nation ceases to exist.

How dare he exploit the tragedy of the families of Sandy Hook to enslave this nation.  How can one not be p***ed?

what makes you think Rand would? The guy who tried to get support to fillibuster the bill from the start. Im pretty sure he wouldent of tried to pass a gun control bill.

I was very pleased that all 6 that were up yesterday were defeated.  Especially the enhanced background checks, the assault weapon ban (Feinstein's crusade) and the limit on magazine capacity.

There was actually a bill up yesterday to make a concealed carry permit from one state legal in all states...that one got shot down too.  I wasn't against that one, but I do respect that it somewhat violates an individual states rights to be sovereign.   If a state wants to have rules about who can conceal carry in their state, they should be allowed to.

I agree with you, however, if we are being forced to purchase healthcare insurance then we should be force to all carry.  A gun is the ultimate in insurance.

Obama said it was only round one. Too bad he's limited to ten of them.

We're not.

A gun won't keep you from getting sick or breaking your leg, or pay your medical bills, but I get the gist of what you are saying.

" Mighty little force is needed to control a man whose mind has been hoodwinked; contrariwise, no amount of force can control a free man, a man whose mind is free. No, not the rack, not fission bombs, not anything —you can't conquer a free man; the most you can do is kill him" - Robert Heinlein

The president is not going to give up on this.  It's one of his main agendas to take our means of protection away from us.  If he has to, he will sneak it through in the dark of night sometime as a mandate or stick it onto the end of another bill and sneak it through that way.  The man is stubborn and does not accept the word no, even if the entire public says it.

I dont know how long this bill is but I did hear that it was hundreds of pages.  If that is true, does it take hundreds of pages to extend background checks?  And if that is true, then what else is in that bill?  Obama correctly states that 90% of the people are for the concept of extending background checks but considering unintentional consequences of legislation, should he also tout what those are and see how many people are then for the bill (or just the concept)?  Whos lying now?

I would like to know where Obama got his 90% number from. Sounds like another lie he pulled out of his butt.

Hes actually not pulling it out of his butt.  90% is from some of the polls made.  The results of all of them are very high.  But the thing is is that the question asked is only Do you favor extending background checks?.  This really has no relation to the legislation that was being voted on.  This is where Obama was lying through his teeth.  It was aimed right at the low information voter.

I heard a Gallup poll reported yesterday that only 4% actually think gun control is an issue worth taking up. Lol, polls.

Lack of courage? What a putz. I'm actually pleased with Washington, at least for a day. I think the courage stands on defending freedom and rights in the face of relentless verbal attacks and slander by those who want the opposite. Any time a liberal agenda is squashed is a good day to me. I love it. Go tell your kids how to live Feinstein. We ain't havin' it.

This is very short lived as Obama will just sign more Executive Orders.
