Posted on 06/20/2016 5:34:23 PM PDT by ButThreeLeftsDo
Fairfax, Va. The executive director of the National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA), Chris W. Cox, today issued the following statement in response to political maneuvering in the United States Senate that prevented the passage of legislation to prohibit terrorists from obtaining firearms:
Today, the American people witnessed an embarrassing display in the United States Senate. President Obama and his allies proved they are more interested in playing politics than addressing their failure to keep Americans safe from the threat of radical Islamic terrorism.
We all agree that terrorists should not be allowed to purchase or possess firearms. We should all agree that law-abiding Americans who are wrongly put on a secret government list should not be denied their constitutional right to due process. These are not mutually exclusive ideas. It is shocking that the safety of the American people is taking a backseat to political theatre.
We thank the majority of the senators for rejecting the gun control proposals of Senators Feinstein and Murphy. We applaud Senators Cornyn and Grassley for securing majorities for their common-sense proposals. We look forward to working with those interested in real solutions to keep the American people safe, including their right to defend themselves in the face of government failure."
GO TO HELL Harry Reid and take your anti-American colleagues with you, particularly the colossal hypocrite “conceal & carry Feinstein.”
It’s being reported on Twitter that Hillary had a one word response to this.
America twitters back to hillary: “Ah, shuddaaap!”
Dear Senator Cornyn,
Please tell me how you writing a Compromise gun control law to make it easier to get off the No Fly List would have prevented the Muslim who had been on the No Fly list and then taken off the No Fly List from KILLING 52 AMERICAN CITIZENS in Orlando?
Your Compromise GUN CONTROL law does as much good as writing another law against murder. As a former Texas Supreme Court Justice...did you ever consider that CRIMINALS dont obey laws?
Might I suggest that YOU and the Leadership of the U.S. Senate and House, all Republicans, have fully funded the Cheap Labor Express of millions (One Million Muslims) into our country in the last 7 years.
There is no one to blame but our unworthy leaders that have claimed to be conservatives but in fact continue to harm our nation.
Yes we know that the U.S. Chamber of Commerce gives $1.5 million on average to each U.S. Senator...Even if they doubled yours for being in a leadership position...you sold out your country for 40 pieces of silver.
Yes we know the Saudi Arabian Kingdom spends Billion$ of dollars building Mosques and teaching chairs in our major universities...
and funding useful idiot$ that advance their plans.
Perhaps someday You and your family can go on a permanent visit to a majority Muslim nation and live out your demented lives like Walter Edward Fauntroy former Congressional democrat in the United Arab Emirates.
Texas Citizen and Voter
Not to mention that Omar Mateen(Orlando Terrorist) was twice investigated by the FBI in 2013 and again in 2014 and cleared by the agency both times. Though on the terrorist watch list for a while, he was removed from that list after the FBI closed its investigations.
http://thisiscommonsense.com/2016/06/17/what-doesnt-fly/ Hmmm common sense says a useless new law would not help.
Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn, R-Texas, and Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., are seeking a legislative middle ground between Cornyns bill, which would impose a three-day delay for those on the list, and Feinsteins bill, which would ban people on the terror watch list from buying guns.
Nice picture of Gun Control Buddies Cornyn/Feinstein
Nice picture of Speaker Ryan during his meeting with Deputy
Crown Prince Mohamed bin Salman in Capital Hill Wednesday
Hoo - Ray !!!
Obama and his allies?
It was McConnell who allowed the bills to be voted on — knowing they would likely fail.
All this did is give Clinton and the Dems ammo to run ads on the evil Republicans failing on gun control to protect the public from future terrorist attacks, etc.
McConnell fell into that trap or went in on his own initiative.
To the liberals out there; What other rights would you like to deny the people without due process?
The bothersome thing about these votes is that so many who placed their hand on their Holy book and swore to their God to up hold and protect The Constitution of the United States voted yes to infringe the second amendment. Those who did so can not be trusted in anything.
that “enough” was for Huma as she tried to put more than 2 drops of water in Hillarys bourbon.
Notice how Hillary disappears every weekend?
We need to tell the left the same thing they tell us when it comes to issues like Obamacare and abortion: It’s the law of the land. The courts have ruled on it, and have upheld gun rights. It’s settled law. Get over it.
McConnell is essentially an Obama ally...
Sticking the boot up thier arses yet again.
Jeez you’d think libs would learn
...To the liberals out there; What other rights would you like to deny the people without due process?...
Free speech that opposes liberal Democrat plans for us.
So is Cornyn apparently
Most likely the latter.
“Notice how Hillary disappears every weekend?”
She goes to fashion shows on the weekends.
Haven’t you noticed?
The Cankle Treatment Center is only open on weekends last I heard.
The White House is a Muslim and Marxist enclave!
Those of us here (FR) have realized this for many years.
Are we the smartest people in the world?
