Its looking like the gun bill is DOA. Vote is around 4pm today. If we can stop it in the senate and not even have to let it go to the house its a blow to the anti gun groups. Next job punish those who vote for gun bans and mag bans. Vote them out in the midterms.

Yep, just as I predicted. Hopefully the dog and pony show in Washington is over and we can move on to real issues.

The bill never had a chance of passing, as i was telling all the people wringing their hands a while back. Anybody that understands the rural-state make-up of the Senate knows this.

So, ask yourself why they then loaded up a bill that they knew would never pass?

Political propaganda time. I'm surprised they didn't add an amendment to it declaring July 17th to be Ricky Ricardo day so they can claim racism against people that voted the bill down.

Dog and pony time people!

Have a link ?

I know they "modified" the insider trading bill now to exempt themselves and their staff and that got signed into law on 4/15. No debate and unanimous consent so no vote roll.
