These Senators need hammering. Not sure about the tactics, but this must be STOPPED.

They voted without ever looking at the bill.

Un Believable.

CLOTURE

Cloture is a motion or process in parliamentary procedure aimed at bringing debate to a quick end. It is also called closure or, informally, a guillotine.

Their argument was that Reid said they could debate the bill and offer amendments. When harry ends debate and allows no amendments to be voted on we’ll see how they explain their vote.

The final bill can be filibustered according to news reports.

After the dust and shock settled, of seeing who are the turncoats, this whole thing is insane because there was a majority of them who voted on a bill that's has not even been given to ail members as being a completed bill. They don't even know what they have voted in to debate in making this another sham/a march onto gun control/national registry..Yes, unreal.

These 17 in effect voted for the communists taking away guns. They should no longer be considered Republicans and if possible retire them the next election cycle for each one.

Not only that, but any amendments as well. These reports are totally wrong. These folks need to brush up on Senate procedure. This was a meaningless vote.

Until a few years ago, no one ever even had to have a cloture vote to proceed to a bill unless one or two Senators were objecting to proceeding. It just didn’t happen. Many bills died on filibusters, but not before the amendment process started. I think the world will look very different a week from now as far as who is voting where on this thing - both R’s and D’s.

These bloggers have become so used to not seeing a bill actually considered and opened for amendment in the Senate that they think this vote is determinate of something as far as the outcome. Just keep the heat on and we shall see.

We’re told that the vote allowed the bill to proceed with the provision that it receives free opportunity for amending and free and full opportunity for debating.

That means there will be other opportunities for filibustering or killing the bill.

And it still has to pass the House, no matter what comes out of the Senate.

If the house passes this bill and becomes law. I won’t just vote for Hillary once, I’ll break the law and vote for Hillary twice! There isn’t much difference between the parties anyway.
And this country has already passed the point of no return.
What do you think about that Rove.

Easy now. Let’s not sink the ship yet. There’s more to go. Keep up the steady pressure and continually remind them of what happened in 94. Guns is an insane issue to take on, I don’t care who the heck you are or what media you have on your side. It’s the only thing in American politics that gets out the vote. Obama fooled everybody the last two presidential elections by claiming he wasn’t going to go for the guns. Well now we ALL KNOW HE LIED and that is that. Democrats and Rinos are finished if anything gets passed.

We have lost the issue in the Senate and all that will remain is how we are going to lose it in the House.
We the people do not count, nor does the constitution, with either communist party controlling us.
That's how I see the facts now.

Which Republicans voted FOR it?

Senate Republicans are a flock of capons. They will suck up to Obama and their Democrat Colleagues. Don’t even bother with senate Republicans - pressure House Republicans and Boehner - HARD.

Not to be a doomsayer - just cold political calculus - Boehner needs only 30 Republican votes to pass it, working in combo with the Democrats.

I’m willing to be he’s got those 30 votes lined up. I’d say he’s probably got 35 to provide him with a margin of error.

“How in the world did Arizona end up with TWO Rino Traitors? C’mon, AZ...what gives?”

There’s been a civil war going on in the Republican Party in AZ, with the McCain types winning. Special thanks to Sarah Palin for endorsing that POS.

On the other side are the Sheriff Joe, JD Hayworth, and former County Attorney Andrew Thomas types(who was wrongly disbarred for bringing the corruption into the light).

Also they fall back on the argument that the House won’t pass it anyway.

Just what Bush said when he signed the campaign finance reform bill - It’s just smart politics. Don’t worry the Supreme Court will throw it out.

In short, the GOP is full of VILE members who'll sell us out in a heartbeat!

Here are the ones that I know about.
What do we do when our side is full of TRAITORS?
I submit the following for proof.

Check out this link, "Senate Republicans Willfully and Knowingly Lie to Their Constituents (vote to fund Obamacare)".And let's not forget Sen. John McCain, one of Conservatives worst enemies, saying 'I don't understand' GOP filibuster on guns.

umm...isn’t this a tactic to force a vote from at-risk dem senators. They vote against the bill (and with their constiutents) they risk the ire and lower donations from the DNC and people like Bloomberg. If they vote for the bill then they’ll get six gazillion phone calls from their constituents. Either way, a floor vote hurts some vulnerable dem senators.

Unless the crack fairy delivered some seriously good stuff this morning, this bill is DOA in the House.

Shame to see this from Arizona. It is the influence of deep blue Tucson and ever more purple Phoenix. Urban culture is slave culture...no regard for liberty, not even a basic understanding of the concept. I wonder what Jeff Flake and John McCain will do after their current and final terms are up?
