Posted on 04/26/2013 6:39:27 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
In comments made on April 25, Sens. John McCain (R-AZ) and Chuck Schumer (D-NY) both said they were saddened gun control didn't pass on April 17 but assured reporters the measures would be brought up for another vote some time this year.
"I think we will bring the bill back before the end of the year... lots of Senators who thought it was safe to vote against it [on April 17] because of the intensity [pro-gun groups] are not so sure anymore," Schumer said.
Schumer said the intensity for gun control has increased since the failed vote for gun control legislation, and he thinks Americans are now "intense" in their desire for more gun control.
McCain concurred, saying, "I... agree with Chuck that I think the issue will come back." McCain supported the Manchin/Toomey gun control "compromise" the first time around; he said the toughest part of pushing it is that "Second Amendment defenders" are very active....

Tar and feathers — good then, still sends a message.
The effin retreads have been electing this man because of his torture. Now a nation is tortured by him. Kinda poetic.
I wish McCain would organize a third party—He gives the GOP a bad name-—he and Chuck Hagel.
Jaun works for the same power that Schumer works for, and it ain’t We The People.
I wrote on it no money till the RINO$ are gone
I no longer even open their surveys. They don’t read them—just count the money. They must call my house at least twice a week. My husband likes to answer and give the telemarketer a hard time. They called once during a Presidential debate. My husband told them he was watching the debate. The caller ask, “what debate”
This doesnt bother me as much as the internet tax and amnesty that McCain is joining Dems on,
McCain is really peeing me off now. I fully believe he is not running again and so he plans to do as much damage as possible in his last term.
Anyone here who supported him in 2010 is either stupid or a liberal.
And if REpublicans join him they are dead to me.
McCain and Shumer = Dumb and Dumber...........
Piss off Monkey Boys. We are not going to allow you to screw with our rights...........
McCain is an old school progressive. It is very sad to see him representing Arizona. We could do so much better. Once in, it is very hard to get them out.
He has lots of money, name recognition, and the support of the MSM. Maybe he will retire. Six months ago I saw him campaigning with Jeff Flake. I spoke to them and watched John McCain for over an hour, close up. He is vigorous, sharp, and showed no sign of dementia.
I am afraid that we cannot be sure that he will not run in 2016.
Would be good if neither of those maggots are alive if/when it does.

McCain is crazy as hell. Second Amendment Defenders???!!!
Your Rino Bastard, YOU are supposed to be a Second Amendment Defender.
This is just my analysis prediction which is most often right but occasionally wrong (not lately) but I see MCain planning retiring after all these obvious attacks on us.
If he ran again he would put Palin in a rather suicidal spot this time to have to either defend or turn on him. If he runs and she doesn't turn on him then she will no longer be listened to by anyone.
This is much different then late 2010 when Rush told his listeners that Obama didnt care if he was re-elected. I immediately started posting here that Rush was FOS.
Bunch’a bigoted, elitist, fascist, gun-grabbing, anti-libertarian, extremist, anti-Constitutional pantywaists.
McCain is now creating his liberal legacy in what he sees as his last term, no more primaries.
As Rush says :’Dont doubt me!’ LOL
Biden is in Sedona and Flagstaff this weekend.
Is he meeting with Juan McCain on guns?
McCain is as useless as that fat drunken blob Massachusetts sent to the senate all those years. Arizona can be proud.
Yeah thanks Sarah, I was flamed for dissing her for staying in bed with that sack of crap. “She had to”, no she GD did not have to. When someone can do no wrong in your eyes, you have a problem with hero worship versus rationality.
