House Democrats push for immediate vote on gun control measure
Washington Examiner ^ | 12/19/12 | Susan Ferrechio

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.

The gungrabbers are wasting no time.

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.

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.

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.

“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.

I see in that bill that they want to limit magazines to 10 rounds. Do they realize that many of the dead and wounded at the Giffords shooting were done within the first 10 rounds.

If someone opens up using a firearm with a 10 round mag how soon will these same snakes begin to demand a six round magazine.

The Speaker won't do that, but he could say he would be willing to discuss it as soon as the Senate passes a budget.

If you look at all the "gun free" zones elementary schools are the most vulnerable thanks to the Gun Free School Zone Act. That law prohibits even off duty law enforcement from bringing their gun into a school regardless of agency policy.

If Pubbies vote to support a bill to have an Assault Weapons Ban or magazine limit they will have slit their throat for future elections. Millions of INNOCENT gun owners will vote third party instead of for those lemmings.

My suspicion is that the Dems don’t really want a vote. They are pressing the issue to force the Republicans to act against it.

I think gun control is still a losing issue and may come back to bite liberals big time.

Sure, gotta do it while the little caskets are still being shown on the television, with sobbing parents in the background, and the blood is still fresh on the ground.

The Dems will exploit the death of these innocents as much as they can...

...while in the same breath applauding and defending the millions of deaths of innocents killed in the womb, before they even have a chance to draw breath.

Their hypocrisy is disgusting and astounding.

F***ing Ghouls, that’s all they are.

Hope the Rs have enough balls to resist it.

1. What they are looking to ban are standard capacity magazines.

2. The article mentions “assault magazines”. I guess they’ve got a new term we can give in to and start using.

You don’t make laws based on pure emotion. It wouldn’t be bad to discuss parental responsibilities, background checks,
mental illness and its treatment, school security improvement, but the gun itself is only a political football. Guns don’t kill other humans...people do, with or without guns.

Republicans leaders have not publicly responded to Pelosi's demand.

Sometimes no response says more than anything they could possibly state verbally...(Translation: we're not even going to dignify that with a response). Which I hope is the tactic they use for all Obama's gun control push, don't respond, just ignore, schedule no debate, schedule no votes, and go about business as usual.

What they are doing has nothing to do with logic.

Plus, imagine if they passed a law and all street crime and nutjob shootings disappeared. How then would they force their agenda on us?

Remember, they thought they’d stop crime by taking flash hiders off of target rifles. At least that’s what they said.

Pelosi trying to make the Republicans look as though Sandy Hook didn’t matter to them, as well if they succeed in getting the R’s to capitulate it’s a win-win for the Democrats. Just another dirty trick as it’s the Democrats that are jumping for joy at this “crisis”, this opportunity to force legislation that benefits their goals of disarming Americans, and eliminating the Second Amendment.

Those kids that died!? Oh THEM! Uh, Well...uh.... we’re doing this for the children.

RIGHT! /s

This sort of obviousness by the Democrats is proof positive part of their mental void is in the disruption, and rerouting of their thought processes around that point in the brain where normally a conscience would have existed.

THEY have no conscience.

he should but he won’t. he’ll start with clips larger than 30 rounds then fight with himself down to 7 rounds. Obama and the democrats will turn up their nose at the offer and demand 5 or less or even a out right ban on a fire arm that uses a clip.

10 rounds per magazine? That’s not a lot different than the standard magazine used by the m-16.

Just have more magazines in your pocket.
