Sorry Charlie, we have no interest in coming together with you by giving up some of our freedom. You lose, we win, your bill is DOA.
What, Sir, is the use of a militia? It is to prevent the establishment of a standing army, the bane of liberty. Whenever governments mean to invade the rights and liberties of the people, they always attempt to destroy the militia, in order to raise an army upon their ruins. Elbridge Gerry
Great...They need to press this issue through to November!!!
I’m glad they are doing this, this will all but make it difficult for some who put their name to this bill hard to re-elect...Most won’t till Obama wins re-election...
All the more reason to get him out of office later this year...Obviously...
But then again, most are in safe districts to begin with...
Guess we’ll see who blinks on this one...
So our fellow Americans run like sheep to buy whatever might be outlawed while allowing anti-Second-Amendment bills to pass. Most people really don’t like their neighbors any more and tend to focus against them. Works both ways.
That’s how your Second Amendment right will be violated in the future along with your Fourth Amendment right (already given up with inconsiderate “tough on crime” laws). And those who would run like sheep, neglecting other family necessities (especially necessities needing to be saved for an economic depression), despite all of their fantasizing bluster, would certainly allow house-to-house confiscations of their firearms.
Call or write your congressmen. Stop the obsessions about class war. Most of you aren’t really rich anyway, being only recipients of much debt for the time being. Then go out and buy the latest toys “as seen on TV.” Firearms are good and useful tools, but there’s much more to self-defense and refusal against tyranny—far more than taught by nearly all self-described experts.
Wasn't that the excuse the NRA gave for endorsing him?
More pointless nonsense and strident posing from the usual democrat grandstanders.
The irritating weenie Schumer is an utter embarrassment.
Schumer should go around collecting all of the guns and see how that works out.
The fact that either is still in the Senate is an indication that we are no longer a Constitutional republic.
