    Why did the chickenhawk cross the road? To deposit his check from the NRA.

    it was a law against law abiding citizens. Make one against the crooks and it will pass.

    What do you expect from a congress with the lowest popularity in history.

    Allow me to remind you that 54% voted in favor and we live with a governing body where 40% controls the decisions…

    ABOLISH THE FILIBUSTER!!

    Amen. In this case it is a disgrace! The world is watching.

    The World is indeed watching, and we outside the USA hope that democracy returns there soon.
    Filibusters – what a concept.

    “it was a law against law abiding citizens.”


    Actually that is a convenient talking point but not accurate. As it stands today, if a criminal wants to he can go to a gun show and buy a weapon from a private party and not have to go through a background check. The proposed bill would have prohibited that but still allowed private sales or transfers between family and close friends without going through a check. There was a huge amount of misinformation cast about regarding this legislation.

    Yeah, why have any laws at all if law-abiding citizens aren’t going to do that kind of thing?

    Well if you can legally go to a swap meet and sell a gun you bought to a person who you don’t know for sure is batsh!t crazy or is about to murder his wife or something, it must give you great comfort to know that you don’t violate any laws by checking that person’s background.

    Learn the system, Knucklehead. There was NO filibuster.

    @Ms. Ima

    Are you glad there were no laws to make it difficult for the “foreign terrorist murderers” to get the guns they used to rob the 7-11, murder the MIT cop, highjack the Mercedes, and shoot it out with police? Are you glad that their right to acquire weapons without identifying themselves or going through a background check was protected? Do you think a well-armed populace would have prevented the bombing, or rendered the massive police pursuit in progress unnecessary?

    Every citizen with a clean record has a perfect right to own weapons. The proposed law would not have affected that right at all. Defeating it serves only to enable and abet those who would break the laws, those who want to avoid the ten-minute process that is a background check, and pander to the paranoia of a minority.

    Latest issue of Rolling Stone magazine has a great article on the horrors of the “Stand Your Ground” law. Michael Dunn will be brought to trial in Sept. for MURDERING Jordan Davis for playing music too loud. But there are others noted in the article that are not even charged for shooting an unarmed person.

    “Actually that is a convenient talking point but not accurate.”

    Wouldn’t it have been much easier and less constitutionally controversial to simply restrict gun sales to licensed gun dealers at gun shows and prohibit private sales at these venues?

    Under current law an alien who is here illegally or has been admitted with a nonimmigrant visa is prohibited from owning a gun in this country.
