Stockman, Broun answer the call to KILL ALL GUN CONTROL in the House
Note to Barack Obama: Spare us the snide sarcasm and the dripping contempt. Obama's condescending state of the union speech shows, once again, why gun owners don't trust him.
"They deserve a vote," hollered Obama, pointing to drooling anti-gun activists in the galleries.
Well, so did we.
Veterans deserved a vote on whether they would receive due process from a court of law before having their constitutional gun rights taken away. But, when Senator Chuck Schumer threatened to filibuster the DoD authorization bill in order to block that amendment, it didn't happen.
Gun owners deserved a vote on Sen. John Thune's reciprocity legislation -- allowing concealed carry holders to carry their firearms from one state into another. But Democratic Leader Harry Reid made sure each controversial bill coming before the Senate was filled with the maximum number of allowable amendments, so Thune's amendment couldn't be offered.
Gun owners deserved a vote on appropriations language to block 16,000 IRS agents from imprisoning those who refused to comply with the anti-gun ObamaCare law. But Reid carefully manipulated the Senate rules to insure the ObamaCare-related votes were kept to a minimum.
From responsible budgeting to gun rights, Reid's office became the graveyard for votes on issues of interest to conservatives.

But... I'm in.
Our Rep Rob Woodall just sent us all an email opinion survey to fill out on gun control. Our district is very conservative and so is our Rep so he’s not going to vote for any new gun control legislation.
The new “gun control” push was a foregone conclusion as soon as Biden got involved. He made it VERY clear what he was interested in and it wasn’t ensuring the right to gun ownership.
The fact is that, with the current limp wrists running Congress, zero will get whatever he wants one way or another. There’s simply no one to stand up for us.
zero can wrap the Second Amendment in so many new policies, procedures and paperwork as to make gun ownership impossible. But, we’ll still have a Second Amendment. We just won’t be able to exercise our Second Amendment rights!
That’s OK - I thought he said “kill all gun controllers”. I was confused but admittedly a bit exhilarated at the proposition ;-)
That’s an extreme word...
Good post, great effort.
If my doctor asks me if I own a gun, I plan to instruct him/her to record in my file, “The patient’s reply to that query was, `It’s none of (my) [expletive deleted] business.’”
