Don't forget the people who voted Aye/Yes
They just voted to end the filibuster before it started. 68-31.
Well, we still have Bone head to count on in the house **groan**
The list will soon be published.
That’s a laugh.
Reid’s taking this to heart;
This will be stopped in the house right?
I think your question is really, "Is this the last possibility for obstructing voting for passage?" The answer to that is "No."
Bills always are passed on a simple majority basis. The only exceptions are in the constitution, treaties being one example.
This particular cloture vote was on a motion to take up the bill for debate. This bill is now formally up for debate (even though they spent the better part of the week debating it already). At some point, the gun grabbers, DEM and GOP alike, will want to advance their gun grabbing into a law, and to do that, they will have to vote to limit debate AGAIN.
It will not pass the House of Representatives, or will it? Pay for Play?
Not a cheap shot at all...Sarah should not have endorsed Ayotte. She usually gets it right, but Ayotte obviously had her fooled. Lamontagne lost by a razor-thin margin. Incidentally, Red Hampshire is NOT ‘my state’. :-)
Thanks for the info.
Good thing I took my BP meds this morning, freakin traitors.
Primary them ALL when the opportunity arises...
Looks like the NRA WILL score the cloture vote after all !
Won’t make any difference. The republican elite won’t tolerate any nonconforming upstarts winning primaries.
the sight of Dick(head) Durbin makes me vomit. I live in Illinois. He makes me sick.
Hey! I'm trying to grasp at some straws, here. :-)
Yep...that about does it. Aren’t they so proud of themselves. Thanks for the link. It was painful to watch, but I’m glad I did.
All Ammo will now become scarcer and much more costly!
Just trying to exhaust every and all options available ...
Yes, but on a local level. The only way to get DC to stop is if states get their act together. I think all decent pols in DC should walk out, come home, and help the states exert their sovereignty. Kick out the EPA, DHS, TSA, ATF, NEA, IRS, INS, etc, stop all tax payments, dare the feds to stop us.
They are back now.
>>They are back now.
Re run from earlier if you missed it..
Im no lawyer, but it seems like this section means that driving across state lines with your side arm holstered would be outlawed. Beyond that, the definition of transportation includes stopping for lodging. So if I stop in Ohio overnight on my way to NC, I cant load my gun and have it in my room with me. It has to be unloaded, locked, and inaccessible. What does that have to do with shooting kids in a school. But oh, we need this bill to honor the memory of those Newtown kids. What a crock.
And it says that they need probable cause to arrest you for a violation of this law, but most state databases have a list of the CPL holders, so that would probably constitute probable cause for a search. And in any case if pulled over most states require a CPL holder to declare himself as such during a traffic stop, probably also enough to warrant a search.
Look at some of the crap in the senate gun COMPROMISE bill the republicans agreed on:
