Gun control bills went down in flames today in an unsurprising victory for 2nd amendment supporters. We all knew that it would, but I am still relieved. I mean honestly why did so many vote in favor of it? Those people were trying to violate the constitution and make us weaker as a people.
Here are the bills that went down:
With only 46 votes in favor, the Lautenberg-Blumenthal amendment calling for the ban of “high-capacity ammunition magazines” fails to pass the senate.
The Burr amendment, which would require a court to decide whether a veteran, who is deemed mentally incompetent, can own a gun, does not clear the U.S. Senate.
The Feinstein amendment, which would ban the future manufacture, possession, and sale of 157 semi-automatic weapons and high-capacity magazines, fails to clear the senate. Only 40 senators voted in favor of the amendment. Sixty voted against it ( On a personal note, this is the one I was really wanting to see go down. For so many reasons, one of which is simply, Diane Feinstein is just awful)
Look how hopeless she looks. TEE HEE
The Cornyn amendment, which would have allowed concealed-carry permits issued in one state to be valid in all other states, fails with only 57 votes. ( This one could’ve actually been helpful) I would love to go to PA and get a permit and have it be legal in PA. I have a permit, but in NY it is very difficult to get)
The Leahy-Collins amendment fails to clear the senate.
“The Leahy-Collins amendment clarified language on lawfully buying a gun from a licensed dealer as a gift so that was not viewed as straw purchasing under the law,”
With only 52 votes in favor, the Cruz-Grassley amendment fails to clear the senate.
The amendment sought to “reauthorize and improve the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS), increase resources for prosecutions of gun crime, address mental illness in the criminal justice system, and strengthen criminal law by including straw purchasing and illegal firearm trafficking statutes.” ( If NCIC is good enough for the state police, it is good enough for gun laws)
A quick thing to be on the alert for: Harry Reid voted no. This will allow him to bring it up again in the future. If he would’ve voted yes he would’ve been unable to do it.
A big thanks to The Blaze, for keeping us updated, that is were the above came from.
Incidentally Obama’s temper tantrum was truly fun to watch. I would advise everyone to watch it. Looks like Obama is going to be ashamed of America again.
Now then, make sure you check your state and see how your senators vote. It will be very important to remember in the next election cycle how they voted. We need to stress as conservatives how important this very basic GUARANTEED right, is to us.
So, for me its time to breathe a happy sigh of relief. I am so glad that this went down. As for the people who voted in favor of this stuff. We won’t forget, we will remember, and I will personally campaign, donate, and badger everyone I know to defeat you. No one should be able to take away an American’s right to defend themselves with deadly force when necessary. No one should have the right to weaken us as a nation, and make us slaves. We will not go gently into that good night. Be forewarned, the NRA has a lot of money, and they will be getting more. I personally plan to donate money to them, this very night as a thanks for all the pressure and pot stirring they did on behalf of MY second amendment rights. No matter how much media pressure is put on us, we will not surrender our rights in the name of trumped up public safety.
