I wholeheartedly agree, curtmini14 !!!

quote,..."Why more than 100 gun control proposals in Congress since 2011 have failed"

"Over just the past five years, lawmakers have introduced more than 100 gun control proposals in Congress, since Gabrielle Giffords and 18 other people were shot in Tucson, Arizona in January 2011.

Not one of them has been passed into law, and very few of the proposals even made it to the House or Senate floor.

Remembering the 49 victims of the Orlando shooting On Monday evening, the Senate is slated to vote on four more. Democrats have proposed two: one that would ban suspected terrorists from being able to purchase a gun and another that would expand background checks.

Those two proposals, plus two less restrictive measures offered by Republicans, are all expected to fail.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, scheduled the four votes after Democrats pressured Republicans to take action on guns in the wake of the June 12 Orlando shooting that left 49 people dead and 53 wounded.

President Obama, in what has nearly become a ritual, railed against inaction by Congress after the shooting.

"Time and again, we've observed moments of silence for victims of terror and gun violence," he said in his weekly address Saturday, reiterating his call for gun reform. "Too often, those moments have been followed by months of silence, by inaction, which is simply inexcusable."

Homeland Security Jeh Johnson said on "CBS This Morning" last week that "meaningful gun control has to be a part of homeland security."

After every mass shooting, Democrats on Capitol Hill have tried to revive the gun control issue by introducing new legislation. Two weeks after the Tucson shooting five years ago, then-Sen. Frank Lautenberg, D-New Jersey, introduced a trio of gun control bills. One would have closed the so-called gun show loophole by requiring sellers at gun shows to perform the same background checks that licensed gun dealers must conduct. Another would have banned the manufacture and sale of magazines with a capacity of more than 10 rounds of ammunition. The third proposal would have stopped a person on the terrorist watch list from obtaining explosives or guns. None of them gained traction.

Rep. Carolyn McCarthy, D-New York, who retired from Congress in 2015, spent 18 years on Capitol Hill fighting to renew the assault weapons ban, close the gun show loophole or ban high-capacity magazines. Her husband was killed and her son was severely injured when a gunman shot passengers on a Long Island Rail Road commuter train in 1993. McCarthy repeatedly introduced these proposals in every Congress, but none of them passed muster.

The National Rifle Association's (NRA) stranglehold over Congress is largely responsible for the inaction. According to the Center for Responsive Politics, the NRA spent more than $3 million on federal lobbying efforts in 2013 and 2014."

I heard the same crap before the AWB that Clintoris signed back during his reign of terror. "It'll never happen". It sure the f**k can happen. Also, the amount of negative propaganda by every fake news twat was nowhere near what it is today. If one of those f**ktards running on the Dims side wins the White House, look out.

Yes, elections do have consequences,.... ask any Demonscat about the latest one. 8-)

SO, GET OUT AND VOTE, AND TAKE A FEW FRIENDS WITH YOU!!!

Vote history can be a strong indicator of continued voting direction.

We will just have to sit back, wait and see,... and, keep our powder dry. :whistle:

Yup, and if memory serves me,... Obammy changed it from 10 years of SS protection, to LIFETIME, but only went as far back, as to cover Bush. The more and more I see the relationship of Bushy and Obammy,... it really starts me wondering!

Protect him from what. He is our first black president. He was the best president right? He could do no harm? He saved us from our selves? Who could want to hurt him?.

When you say it will never happen, just remember what happened to tobacco- and it was a much bigger industry.
Decision day is coming and may occur sooner than you think.
That's my opinion... and I'm stick'in to it...

Hmmm,... I remember stories of Loyalist Tories that believed the Colonies could never brake away from the King's rule,... some of our first naysayers, for sure.

It ain't over till the fat lady sings, gentlemen!
