    Do you ever address the actual comic or do you always try to change the subject?

    Yeah, that’s what the idiot gets for being elected twice, right?

    The people have spoken and rejected the progressives anti-gun agenda, again.

    Yes, the “People” from the N.R.A. with the open checkbooks…

    The “people” supported the bill by 90%, including 75% of the NRA membership.

    Background checks aren’t anti-gun, unless you feel criminals and terrorists have a right to guns too. (And no, it wouldn’t stop all of them, but it would stop some and make it more difficult for all.)

    I wish to to interject what I feel is a correction, mon ami. They supported backround checks by those percentages, not the bill. I’m not even sure they would have supported backround checks as they are written in the current legislation.

    Excuse me, Narrowminded, If the people had their say, the gun lobby would be buried in spent shells. It’s the congress folks who are funded by the NRA who let us down! Why do we not have an anti gun lobby with as much clout?

    Let’s face it—filibuster reform is what will save us. How do we get filibuster reform passed in both Houses when the money interests like it the way it is—that a SINGLE legislator can place a SECRET hold on ANY legislation?
    Whelp—we’re screwed.

    When the next mass shooting occurs, and we all know it will, we will have the exact same discussion. We will have similar poll numbers stating how many people want this or that. We will have hand-wringing and speeches about how it’s past time to do this or that, and also how it won’t make any difference to try.

    In the end, votes will be taken and nothing will change.

    When the next mass shooting occurs, and we all know it will,…………….

    First: the House does not filibuster and has no provision for same to occur.

    Second: the filibuster is naught but a Senate rule (XXII) that the Senate can change at any time. Even if a party has enough of a majority to nullify this rule, they won’t because they know that some day they will be in the minority and will need the ability to filibuster.

    Third: there is nothing secret about a filibuster.

    Fourth: the filibuster can be used to force a decision against the will of the majority (not sure how that’s done), not just block legislation.

    So true. The cowardice of the congress is unutterable. The entire nation is shamed by the mugs of NRA that buy off representatives so more people will die.

    Well could be more wrong here? In a word NO.

    @Andy

    I do wonder why the Democrat, Reid was against ending the filibuster and return the voting to 51 majority over the artificially raised 60 voter majority? Unless he agreed with it.
