McCain, Schumer Say Gun Control Will Get Another Vote This Year
Breitbart's Big Government ^ | April 25, 2013 | AWR Hawkins

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....

I think they need to try it every 6 months so people don’t forget before the next election.

He is no more than a RAT.

Third party will have ensured that some sort of gun control would have passed. I understand your frustration though.

Fear of a primary challenge is the only thing keeping some rinos in line, at least on this issue.

The problem with Juan McCain is, he knows he’s doing his final term. Arizonans will never elect this scumbag again.

Since losing the election in 2008, McCain has allowed defeat to drive him ever more rapidly toward complete senility. Retire, McCain. Retire while some people still hold you in high regard.

Agree. We need to complete our takeover of the party from within. I will do what I can on the local level to further that process. There may be a time in near future to go third party. If immigration reform in its current form passes, our party will likely split up. One of two more election cycles after amnesty and the Republicans would no longer be viable on the national level.

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 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.

RE :”I am afraid that we cannot be sure that he will not run in 2016.

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.

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

New York and Arizona voters need to step up and recall vote these SOB’s out of office. Is that possible ?

Till then I’m sending contributions to NRA and Texas State Rifle Association . Also will babysit my own polidiots as a best I can and use snail mail, hand written and email to all I can with my views on the subject.

We could probably pay off the national debt if we fined congress for unconstitutional legislation attempt...

Vote with our dollars between elections if at all possible....

Do not support any progressive socialist supporting enterprise. GM / GE sorts can kiss my ass !

My own penny a day, doubled every day form of resistance on these rhinos and rat domestic enemies.

BLOAT when ya find it....

This is how they are driving the redefinition and perversion of “Marriage” up America’s whooper - by incessant, relentless repetition.

These bills will be recycled and re introduced over and over again until opposition is eventually worn down or spent out... then they will pass it in the middle of some dark night when no one is looking and shazzam; “Turn in your guns, America”!

Does a significant portion of American gun owners have the testicular fortitude to actually take a stand and resist enFORCE ment with defensive counter force, which is about all we’ll have left after they hammer such unconstitutional legislation through the halls of legislatures and congress?

Despite all of the “Cold dead hands” bravado, when the hob nailed jack boots come knocking, I seriously doubt it.

In the states where the peasantry has already been effectively disarmed, how many dissidents put up a fight for their 2A “rights”?

As people found out in Nazi Germany, England and other tyrannical regimes; in most cases to resist was to die - or spend the rest of your miserable life in a cage.

Not many civilian Americans have the stomach for civil war, IMHO - while the Regimes’ private political “Security force” Sturmabterlung of gang bangers, foreign mercenaries and Islamic Hadji professional killers are delighted by the prospect and can hardly wait to get it on.

Go ahead and vote all you want; Republicrat... Democan... the flight plan won’t change much even if elections aren’t rigged... which I’m pretty sure they are and have been for some time now.

Good luck with a 3rd party; we tried that already. That door was locked up tight years ago.

Remaining options, the way I see it:

Surrender your arms and stand by for dispossession, persecution, slavery and probable genocide.

Resist and expect the horrors of war and slaughter, somewhat like what we see in Syria - only probably much worse. The Syrian “rebels” have plenty of outside support, but Who is going to back the American Patriot this time - France... again?

Oh; one other option... I almost forgot:

2 Chronicles 7:14

http://www.bibleontheweb.com/bible/KJV/2%20Chronicles-7?highlight_verse=14#14

... probably wouldn’t hurt.

RE: ‘Once in, it is very hard to get them out.”

Unless of course it’s a real conservative Patriot, like Lt. Col. Allan West, that is.

One term wonder; go along; get along, or get out seems to be the general rule in politics.

Bachman kept her seat by the proberbial skin of her teeth, and I will be amazed if she survives the next combined attack of the Democan and Republicrat establishment.

She dared to question why all the MuzzBros in the administration, and that was probably the kiss of death for her political career.

Anyone who disses the Saudis or Muslims (like West had the audacity of doing) is probably toast.

A third party is a good idea if you want to guarantee that the Rats will be in power from now on.

What we need is good primary opponents to asses like McLame and then to open our wallets and give them money. J.D. Hayworth in 2010 was not a great opponent but he might have won the general election.

But McLame blasted him with over $20 million in vicious ads while Hayworth did not have enough money to respond because people like you did not support him. Entrenched politicians like Juan have access to lots of special interest money but it is up to use to support people like Hayworth who can take them down.

When Palin came here to AZ for here 4 stop campaign(including the big money fundraiser at the Biltomre,hosting very rich pro-amnesty Republicans) I still remember her words....

Palin: “ John McCain is a true conservative! “

” John McCain IS the Tea Party!”

These quotes were in the Arizona Republic.
