Posted on 12/20/2012 10:32:29 AM PST by Do Not Make Fun Of His Ears
House Democrats on Wednesday pressured Republicans to hold a vote now on a bill that would ban high capacity gun clips like the one used in the deadly Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.
Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D- Calif., said the GOP leadership should put a bill on the floor by Friday that would limit the size of gun magazines to 10 rounds.
Republicans leaders have not publicly responded to Pelosi's demand.
Flanked by a crowd of Democratic lawmakers, Pelosi made the statement at a news conference announcing a special House Democratic task force aimed at examining gun violence. Pelosi said she has tapped Rep. Mike Thompson, D-Calif., who is a gun owner and a hunter, to lead the panel.
Democrats are trying to seize momentum necessary to pass the most aggressive gun control measure since the 1994 legislation that banned a wide range of assault weapons.

"You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it's an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before."
Just shows how important budget and taxes are to them.
The gun control ghouls strike before even the funerals are over...
Ban the sale of normal mags, or ban possession? If they are again demanding that a bill be passed before anyone reads it, almost anything could be in it.
Why the hell not...
Let’s get CWII started early.
Do it Now!
Do it NOW!
You can find out what’s in it later...
Democrats are a cancer eating away at our nation.
The House is the key. More gun control will either start or die there. It’s important that people contact Republican members and stop anything, even the magazine ban.
Federal Government should be banned from walking “AR” weapons to Mexican drug lords that have resulted in deaths of hundreds of innocents. Put that up for vote first.
Less than a week later? Seriously???
Welcome to Venezuela....
We arm our airline pilots, don't we?
Dems run on emotion , and the immediate
Repubs run on intellect ideas and thoughtful long term
This last election was decided by “sound bytes”
I’ve got my list....hope you have yours. Hogs need feeding, BADLY.
Go ahead and "target" yourselves, RINOs.
The Democrats didn’t have this all written and just handy in a drawer somewhere, ready to pull out on a moment’s notice when the inevitable disaster strikes, now did they?
The ratchet moves up one notch further, drawing down even tighter the chains and fetters that have been accumulating, going back to the days of Viet Nam and the Watergate crisis.
It may be this one, though this was filed last January, and is just coming to the floor now.
Bans sale or possession of new ones. Ten years in Club Fed if you can’t prove your Glock mag was manufactured before the cutoff date.
“The gun control ghouls strike before even the funerals are over...”
Well they cant exactly wait until people rational figure out that the reason for this massacre was a total absence of guns in the hands of the defenders rather than the unavoidable presents of guns in the hands of the offenders.
The democratic party is a party of exploiting the mob’s baser instincts including most prominently their emotions.
Conservatives can do the same only with logic (which frequently takes longer to kick in) by highlighting the disarmed teachers and printable along with the unavoidably of nuts getting their hands on weapons.
No gun control measure ever passed could prevent that anymore than Washington an prevent druggies from getting drugs.
You never know. We may soon learn that the Second Amendment can be re-worded through a simple Executive Order. Stroke of the pen, law of the land, you know. Who needs the House?
“...and checking it twice. Gonna find out who’s naughty and nice.”
Just watching Obama on Fox News. He is an absolute master of the smear. A shakedown artist at heart. So conceited.
You can shove your silly idea up your collective smelly Obamas.
While you’re at it, purchase a bushmaster and shove it up there also.
We’ve had it with you. Go ahead and try.
