The Democratic chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee did not endorse colleague Dianne Feinsteins assault weapons ban at a packed Capitol Hill hearing on guns Wednesday in the wake of the Newtown, Conn., shooting. Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., called for common sense reform, that closes loopholes in current gun laws and enforces background checks. Buthe did not endorse Feinsteins tougher ban. I know gun store owners in Vermont, Leahy said. They follow the law and conduct background checks
why should we not try to plug the loopholes in the law that allow (criminals and the mentally ill)

I’d rather close the “bimbo” loophole that allows idiot-esses like Feinstein to have any sort of gubmit job.
Maybe Fineswine will “dry up over time” after this fail.
I had to double-check to make sure John Semmens wasn’t at it again.
They have their internal polls.They know how the next election would go if gun confiscation happens.
I’d bet the farm ole diane dried up long ago.
They also are probably feeling the heat about even suggesting it. Even Piers Morgan is going off the gun-grabbing track and back to interviewing.
HA-HA, I thought it would get further than that.
He doesnt even want Dem Senators going on record for it,
Republicans would demand a vote on it (if they were smart)
Take that Joe and Mika :
I guess all the freepers claiming that Bohner will put up a bill for a vote on this misjudged a bit or two.
they only have about 20 other bills that do similar hatchet jobs on the 2nd.
this one was just for show.
DiFi was shot down big time by Leaky Leahy and Dingy Harry on this, they know the Rats would suffer if it passed.
Generally speaking, Congress is comprised of "criminals and the mentally ill".
The Rats don’t believe that universal background checks will stop criminals from getting guns for one second. All they want is to fill in the holes of their illegal gun owner database.
We got âem on the first round look for a fairly innocuous bill to come out that will be interpreted to get more than is the obvious control out of it and then the Kenyan will try to executive order it into existence. We need to blow this crap up big time and get the red state dems in a cross fire....I smell midterm blood in the water!!
How about background checks to hold public office, any government job, receive any government check, or to perform any function protected by the 1st Amendment, so that those guarantees are linked to those of the 2nd Amendment?
If Feinstein was just a average American she would already be in a locked ward.
If that swine was a Republican she would be banned from the party and/or in jail.
THAT is the whole reason behind this bill...for the gun-grabbers to "compromise" their big, bad, scary ban for registering every gun transaction in the country.
That is simply unacceptable. We citizens have taken too many steps backwards in accepting the demands of the statists - not just on this issue, but on the 4th and 5th Amendments. NOT ONE MORE INCH!
Along with drug tests. That'd be a good start.
