Assault weapons ban clears Senate panel

23 posts in this topic

Democrats support it, Republicans don't. Sen. Dianne Feinstein makes a passionate appeal for her legislation, but it's not likely to pass the full Senate.

WASHINGTON — Despite its long odds in the full Senate, a federal ban on assault weapons cleared a Democratic-run committee Thursday on a party-line vote.

"I've looked at bodies that have been shot with these weapons," the bill's chief sponsor, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, told Senate Judiciary Committee colleagues. "How many times does this have to happen?"

True.

It has little chance in the Senate. And no chance in the House.

I'm really mad it passed the Senate. I'd like to call Fein-stein (FIRE BAD!) something bad... :angry:

I doubt this bill will pass the House, as they don't have the required votes to get it to pass even among the Democrats.

I doubt they will get an "Assualt" (It's big and scary looking!) Weapons Ban. I wouldn't mind tougher laws on gun trafficking and obtaining a weapon illegally. But, I'm against more gun regristration. The laws on gun registration that we have on the books are good enough, and alot tougher then what most people think. Even if it DOES pass (which I doubt) it will not be enforcable.

It has little chance of passing correct. But it will likely make it out of the Senate which will further polarize and raise fears in the USA. So it would be best if it does die in the Senate for the good of the People.

Fear mongering by Govmnt has reached a fever level.

I'm not sure Harry Reid will let it come to a vote. For some strange odd reason that liberal kook has a very good record for voting pro-gun. He used to even have an A rating from the NRA. I could never figure that one out. They must line his pockets pretty heavily is all I can figure.

Most of the Democrats I know own guns. They aren't all anti gun by any means.

Surprised me as well. But the cash has to be a big part of it. Or maybe the majority of Nevadans would run him out of town on a rail if he did otherwise :)

My point? How about they give up their armed bodyguards, then we will talk about "gun control"....

Unlike them, I don't have millions of dollars to hire people to protect me....so I'll keep my guns.

You can laugh at this old lady if you will, but if it doesn't pass this time, it will soon. Socialism and "the collective" are marching across my shadow and I feel them coming. Soon we will be as in the EU, with no freedom at all. Doesn't matter which of the two major parties are in power. They are all the same, no matter what promises they make. This is no longer a representatifve government, unless you are big business and can pay for what you want.

The Socialist leaders and so-called 'Progressives' of this country are destroying the powers that limit our Government.

They are labeling believers in popular sovereignty as terrorists. Any one who believes in American principles is the enemy to them.

A total gun ban is the agenda of the Democratic party; they're preparing for economic collapse to implement their next stage of plans.

I'm such a political news junkie...

Newtown families: Senators who filibuster gun background check bill should be ‘ashamed’

Dozens of relatives of victims in the Dec. 14 shooting spree in Newtown, Conn., released a statement Thursday shaming senators who attempted to block, or filibuster, a vote on legislation that would expand criminal background checks for gun purchases.

Senators voted Thursday morning on whether to block the legislation crafted by West Virginia Democrat Joe Manchin and Pennsylvania Republican Pat Toomey from coming to a vote. While 31 senators, including two Democrats, did vote to block the bill, a bipartisan group of 68 senators from both parties voted to allow a debate and vote on the bill to proceed.

"The Senators who have vowed to filibuster this bill should be ashamed of their attempt to silence efforts to prevent the next American tragedy," reads the statement, signed by more than 33 relatives of the 20 children and 6 educators killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School. "We thank Senators Manchin and Toomey for coming together to honor the memory of the victims of Sandy Hook, and we urge their colleagues in Congress to join them."

Check out: http://news.yahoo.co...--election.html

Republican Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas, Rand Paul of Kentucky and Mike Lee of Utah are among those who voted against debating the bill on Thursday. Cruz defended the tactic to radio host Laura Ingraham on Wednesday, saying there should be a 60-vote threshold before a debate on curbing gun rights. Democrats hold 55 seats in the Senate, but 60 senators must vote before a bill can be debated. According to the Dallas Morning News, Cruz spoke by phone with Erica Lafferty, Hochsprung's daughter, this week, to hear her concerns.

“He certainly feels for her loss,” Cruz's spokeswoman told the paper. “But the legislation being considered right now wouldn’t have prevented that tragedy.”

The National Rifle Association has also said that tighter background checks would not have prevented Newtown shooter Adam Lanza from accessing weapons, since they were reportedly purchased by his mother, who had no criminal record.

Go Senators! :clap:

What a crock! This is a setup plain and clear. Now when this *law* fails (as everyone knows it will), there'll be more ammo for removing our Rights to our weapons. This agenda to dismantle the Constitution and the Bill of Rights needs to end, NOW! Leave MY money, MY kids, and MY guns alone!!!!

Oops! New York State Police Admit to Major Mistake in Gun Confiscation Case

In a surprising turnaround, New York State Police have admitted that they made a mistake when they confiscated the guns and suspended the permit of an Erie County resident on the grounds of mental health.

.......

"When you write a piece of legislation in a vacuum, without having hearings, without talking to people about how it's going to implemented in the real world -- without jeopardizing people's rights, and putting an individual like this through a nightmarish experience, and infringe on their rights, you have to go back to the drawing board," he said. "And I encourage the legislative leadership here and mostly our governor to take a step back and say 'we didn't get it right' and let's change this."

http://news.yahoo.com/oops-york-state-police-admit-big-mistake-gun-142418295.html

what makes me lmao, is that they want legislative leadership to admit their mistake, lol, that wont happen, they will blame everyone else around, but wont admit their mistake. happens all the time.

also if they have to fix this legestlation, there are thousands more in need of fixing, if they admit those are wrong too, ppl will ask very legit question, wtf are they doing??? oh wait, we already ask that question.

Senator Says Universal Background Checks Could Lead to National Registry

Nothing short of a rejection of any gun bill should be acceptable to the American people if they wish to retain a modicum of liberty

Senator Mike Lee, a Republican from Utah, expressed his concern on the Senate floor about a universal firearm background check system now under consideration in Congress.

“Some of the proposals, like for example – universal background checks – would allow the federal government to surveil law-abiding citizens who exercise their Constitutional rights,” Lee said. “One of the provisions we expect to see in the bill based on what we saw in the Judiciary Committee – on which I sit – would allow the Attorney General of the United States (Eric Holder) to promulgate regulations that could lead to a national registry system for guns. Something my constituents in Utah are very concerned about, and understandably so.”

Senator Lee said the government has no authority to monitor the legal exercise of constitutional rights.

That's how it is in my state now (as it is in many states). Still doesn't stop the criminals from getting guns (cuz, you know, criminals really do walk into a gun store and actually pay full price plus sales tax - if applicable :rolleyes: ).
