    I wondered why I got an Out of Office reply today from her email... instead of fixing California, she's busy back east!

    Seems the house is our main line of defense... I really hope they are smart enough to put this woman in her place with a big resounding "NO!!"

    This is a great article written by a Canadian professor on their failed attempt at enforcing a gun registry. After $1 Billion dollars they scrapped it because there was no evidence that it reduced gun violence. Only law abiding citizens will register firearms.

    Who is going to pay for this? We can't even pay our debts without borrowing more money!

    Why the long-gun registry doesn?t work ? and never did | Full Comment | National Post

    We've got to stop that crazy bit#@

    Please go to this thread:http://www.xdtalk.com/forums/rkba-n...bulletin-senate-republicans-may-wavering.html Click on the link to Mitch McConnell and send him a fax. We need to bombard his office because as senate minority leader he's thought to be negotiating a deal with Harry Reid that would stop a republican filibuster and allow this crap to pass if it makes it through the house. There's also the danger that McConnell could influence house republicans to back down and support the Abominations anti-gun agenda. Don't let it happen! ;)

    I don't think it will even pass the senate. They need more than just a simple majority and in my opinion they won't get the 60 votes they need. There are at least 2 senate democrats, possibly 5 who won't vote on the abomination. Heidi Heitcamp (probably my favorite Dem - she opposes gun bans, and has come out against BHO on other things as well. Check her out, she's actually pretty principled from what I've read.), and one other person, can't remember his name.

    So they would need at minimum, 5 republican votes and at most 10. I don't see it happening right now at least. Unless BHO has been working behind the scenes to secure Republican votes (doubtful), were safe for now.

    That's not to say they're going to give up after today. I think it won't pass immediately, and BHO is going to use his campaign arm and the puppets in the media to shame those who won't vote for it. That's my fear. Republicans are quick to fold when they start getting **** in the media. That's why it's more important than ever to stay on our reps until this latest attempt is dead and buried.

    Agree! My guts tell me it will die in the Senate! Too many long term careers at stake. This issue will have a lot of weight come next election, and we will not forget how one votes! This is the hottest topic that's been kicked around in a long time. They know this.

    The democrats will give the republicans a choice, gun ban or debt ceiling, then the republicans will cave on both!

    They will get something, but they won't get this.
