Skip to comments.McCain, Schumer Say Gun Control Will Get Another Vote This Year
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.
McCain is getting worse the longer he’s there.
McCain just go away.
Somebody ping me the next time McCain pushes a conservative bill.
It’s people like McCain who have turned me against the GOP.
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.
I got a questionaire from the RNC in the mail today. Bunch of questions about the direction the party should go. It was just a fishing operation for my money.
I wrote on it “ no money till the RINO’$ are gone ‘
Yeah, about an hour after the false flag they're working on.
By that time, you could be in a wheel chair and collecting social security, or more likely, we will all be pushing up daisies by then. He is disgusting.
Then we conservatives need to take over the Republican Party from the precinct level on up. I watched the Pat Robertson folks do exactly that in Iowa in 1987-88.
This must be where the term “harder headed then a government mule” came from. Jackasses both.
That’s what has been causing all the change in Michigan. Conservatives from the roots up.
These bitches are waiting, salivating, for another killer to spring out with some fresh bodies for these Marxists to dance upon. If there isn’t a psycho available, they’ll set one loose. Read Matt’s first book.
It’s what totalitarians do.
Don’t hold your breath!
Actually one of them couldn't take it anymore and is no longer a fan and both the others are wobbling, so he better act quick.
Please tell me this piece of crap is not running for Senate again..Seriously McCain, do everyone a favor and just retire, or just become a Dem, you know you want to..McCain is so desperate to get the love from the media and the left he will stoop to any level to kiss some Commie ass
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.
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.
They’ll pass it at midnight with one extra vote (whoever isn’t up for election that year). They have no regard for what the people actually want and haven’t had for decades.
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
... probably wouldn’t hurt.
RE #10: “... about an hour after the false flag they’re working on. “
You mean the NEXT FF operation, don’t you?
Expect a steady stream of them until they get what they want.
The cattle cars to the camps will then follow close behind.
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.
” I see this as similar to my proven correct posted predictions that MCCain 2008 and Romney 2012 would lose, that Ryan was a phony, and that Obama really did want to be re-elected contrary to what What Rush was saying he didnt”
And here wi are, with the corrupt GOP moving to the left, and discussing Ryan, Rubio, and Jeb Bush for the next POTUS. Is this hell on earth, or what?
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.
Arizona Biltmore, that is.
