    Looks like it’s all over except the blame game and the deepening partisan divide. It’s a shame the background check failed. That really would have been a useful tool.

    At least the “take your concealed carry to every state regardless” amendment to the bill also failed. What happened to the “states rights” argument the GOP usually uses?

    You’re right. We need MUCH stricter gun laws than the one that failed in Congress.
    Obama was right. It was cowardice on the part of senators, including Democratic senators, who failed to recognize the will of 90% of Americans who WANT STRICTER GUN CONTROLS.
    And even 70% of the NRA is willing to have better background checks and the like.
    Wayne LaPierre and the NRA machine are not supporting the will of their own organization’s members — just that of the arms manufacturers.
    Appalling.

    Strict Gun Laws did not prevent the murder of a young lady in Chicago just one mile from Obama’s Home.

    Yes, you can also massage the numbers to show 90$ of Americans oppose Background checks by the way you ask the question.

    It’s a sad commentary on our Senate that they can’t write a simple bill with only backround checks in it. This is what has overwhelming support. From the Senate bill, S.649 second reading, cover page-“….and require a background check for every firearm sale, AND FOR OTHER PURPOSES” (upper case is mine).

    The killer for this bill was the “other purposes” allowed into this bill. Everybody stuck their fingers in it, including the backround check part, and added amendments that multiple parties found objectionable, making it impossible to reach the required consensus.

    What I most object to about this situation is that the politicians are performing lies of omission by acting like this bill is only about backround checks. The media is going along with it either because of their own agenda or because they are too lazy to read the bill and understand why some would object to some portions of same.

    The entire bill, second reading can be found at:

    I have verified that this site address does work.

    Me for one, Harley…As far as I am concerned, thats all that matters !

    But, I cannot tell you about the 90%..even if I am a member…But, I do believe it..The American people are NOT happy with currents events.
    .
    Read the polls…google….

    I’ll deduce that you think is fine for the mass-murdering to continue without a finger being raised….
    Hatred….for oneself and others…

    Boy !
    Talk about dense..
    Not sorry for being emotional, either..
    The bill is designed to save lives – everywhere, NOT just SandyHook..
    This bill, is, unfortunately, a POS, thanks to Lilly-livered congressmen.

    @Tigger

    No bill will be 100% !
    Or, then, you seem to wish to do nothing , due to the above ??

    @Mr. King

    You could call them DINO’s. What’s your point?

    No, you could just call them politicians. Almost all the republicans voted against it. Politics reigned supreme. Yet silently they passed legislation to gut the insider trading, financial disclosure requirements for congress. There is no honor amongst them, they have proven themselves to be a totally selfish, self centered lot that care only for themselves and hold themselves above the laws they enforce on us.
