Senate Now Voting on Amendments to Gun Legislation



The Senate on Wednesday is debating and will vote on several amendments to S649, the gun legislation bill which Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) introduced last week. One of the first amendments debated and voted on is the amendment by Senators Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Pat Toomey (R-PA) which deals with background checks when purchasing a firearm.

But, but.. The bombing is overshadowing this. And ‘arrests’, and ‘bomb threats at court houses’, blah blah blah.. Coincidentally.

If it doesn’t pass, it will be a huge failure for Obama and a great gain for America.

Obama needs this to go to the House so they can get House Reps to vote on it and identify those against it for the 2014 midterms.

When this amendment fails, it means that the original language in the bill, as written by Chuckie Schumer, will stand. Several red state Dems up in 2014 are gonna have to choke that one down..

Reid’s “No” vote was procedural. It allows him to bring up the amendment again at a later time.

Which means he will move to reconsider the vote, that’s all. It also means the amemendment (will) falls.
