No more new gun laws.
Stop it now.
ALL of these articles from CNN or NY Times should have a barf alert imo
“Coburn vehemently opposes any attempt by the federal government to retain information on gun owners.”
Well, they have to gather it first and then keep it for the background checks so it logically could never be removed.
Let it play out Sen. Coburn and don’t undercut those real Conservatives that threaten filibuster. Coburn, quite frankly, seems to have lost some of his conservative zeal over time, has he had the RINO lobotomy?
The Republicrats are hard at work screwing America.
Question: what part of the American citizens’ Constitutional rights do these bozos NOT understand (or not give a damn about)?
Answer: All of it.
(Remember what he told us, “Elections have consequences.”)
Senator Coburn, we had that 'debate' with Great Britain over two hundred years ago, and settled the matter decisively. Our God-given RIGHT to keep and bear arms has been enshrined in our Constitution ever since.
Congress has NO right to rule one way or another about RIGHTS it does not have the power to bestow or revoke.
There is nothing to 'debate'. Stand and defend the Constitution as you swore to, or resign in treason and disgrace.
Our side, the American People, are going to lose this fight.
What in the hell is so difficult with understanding, “SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED”??
I told Sherrod Brown (Socialist - Ohio) if he wanted to register anyone why not start with gang members and mentally impaired (Obamacare?)
The Senate is FUBAR
We should go back to the Constitution and have 2 Senators per State, elected by the State legislature.
You know, I applauded Rand Paul’s filibuster to question the President’s drone policy; however, if there was ever a reason to filibuster, I would think infringement of our 2nd Amendment rights would be a justified cause. My cynicism is on full tank and each day, more and more, I think that these politicians are two-sides of the same coin. I think mentally, I am starting to go Gault. I will probably give it one more time, trying to make a difference in the next election. I am starting to think that we should ban all political parties and we should have term limits for all elected officials.
Don’t worry: this will never pass. There are a lot of Democrats from conservative districts who will be tough elections. So calm down.
-The smartest people in the conservative room, March 2010 right before Obamacare passed....
Coburn actually believes that the government will abide by the law? After Fast & Furious???
Sounds like he's taking too many meds.
This is a revitalization of windfire, under Carter and Bush 41.
Tom Coburn sure seems to enjoy being the voice of “moderation” against his more conservative fellow Republicans. It must be all those “Gang of 6, 8, 14, etc.” he keeps joining to sell out his conservative colleagues’ ideals. He sounds more and more like Lindsey Graham and John McCain every day.
I am so sorry I ever voted for Coburn. But in my defense, he has changed over the past 3-4 years.
As far as his line about not knowing where my senators stand on the issue if the filibuster happens, BUNK! If the filibuster happens, and my senators don’t side with the filibuster, I’ll know exactly where they stand.
The FBI is not supposed to retain info about background checks. They do anyway, because the legislation never specified a penalty for doing so.
Have an amendment saying that having possession of background check info, or permitting background check info to be retained, is a felony punishable by 10 years in prison, with no statute of limitation. So any FBI executive that orders retention, or any FBI IT person making a backup of the info, or any FBI IT person making it possible to make backups of the info, goes to jail. And while the current administration would not prosecute, they have to worry about future admins.
