What a boatload of horse shyt.

If it had 90% backing from Americans it would have passed.
The NRA hasn’t got that kind of power.

It lost because people are tired of seeing their Constitutional rights stepped on.

The bought into thier own lie.

Gun control is an issue to only 4% of the public.

It’s not an issue to 96% of the public

Not the 90% as tried to bait and switch the poll on one issue to the poll on all issues.

Only thick-skulled boneheads believe that 90% of “americans” BS. It’s just propaganda from the Josef Goebbels fan club down at the state controlled “media”. If there was any truth to that 90% figure, the politicians would have known it and would have voted to violate the Second Amendment with this Nazi Gun Confiscation bill.

“The support of 90 percent of Americans.”

You lie.

“a high hurdle that progressives decry as undemocratic.”

Maybe “progressives” (short for ‘little tyrannical a$$hats’) should go live in a democracy instead of a republic.

from Rush this past week:

There's a Gallup poll out. “Only 4% of Americans Think Gun Control is an Important Problem.” Only 4%! After all the Newtown stuff on Air Force One. After all the so-called lobbying. After all of the caring. After all of the attention. After all of the focus. Only 4% of the American people think gun control is an important problem, but the people in Washington do not care. We've got Dingy Harry out talking about the anti-gun bill, letting the cat out of the bag. And that has always been the point, folks.

These polls saying that 90% of Americans believe in universal background checks, not true. They ignore the fact that nearly 100% of Americans do not think this is an issue. Only 4% of Americans think gun control’s an important problem. Can I talk to you about disconnect? If you turn on the media, if you listen to it, read it, watch it, all you'll think is going on is gun control and immigration. Alternate hours, alternate days, gun control here, immigration there. The next hour, immigration, then gun control.

“...but fell short of the Senate’s 60-vote threshold to pass new laws, a high hurdle that progressives decry as undemocratic.”


Let me help with the wording here:

“...but fell short of the Senate’s 60-vote threshold to pass new laws, a high hurdle that progressives SELECTIVELY decry as undemocratic.”

“The NRA’s budget is massive: $200 million, one of the biggest among major lobbying groups.”

Oh really...

“It’s not influence that is backed by the American people. It is backed by a lot of money and a small, very vocal, and, in my opinion, an organization that has some extreme ideas about gun safety and about violence in this country.”

And other than Bloomberg, where did Bloomberg’s $12M come from?

The support of 90 percent of Americans.

LOL! Such a load of socialist propaganda BS.

Does anyone seriously believe if 90% of the people supported this that it would be an issue at all? It would have been law the same day it was introduced.

It failed because congress knew the price they would pay for an unConstitutional infringement of the 2nd amendment.

Also, because more and more Americans realizes, you can either have gun control or you can have a Constitution and all of it's protections, but not both.

Further infringement of the 2nd amendment translates simply as the end of our freedoms. Nothing will restrain the socialists once the population is disarmed.

BS! This is why it failed...

The Dem/libs have been engaging in a steady push to infringe on our right to keep and bear arms for decades. And this is how it has been working out for them in the last two decades...

And in the last two months... (Nov. 2012 and Dec. 2012)

MOLON LAVE! AMERICA LOVES THE 2ND AMENDMENT. ;-)

The danger is that they believe their own hype, and will move to do illegal things to get the guns.
