Dems don't have votes for Weapons Ban
 
Thankfully there are some smart Democrats in office...

Quote:

The new legislation prohibits the sale or transfer of 158 of the most commonly owned military-style assault weapons. It exempts all assault weapons legally possessed prior to passage of the law and excludes more than 2,200 hunting and sporting rifles.

Baucus, in a Jan. 16 statement, said that “before passing new laws, we need a thoughtful debate that respects responsible, law-abiding gun owners in Montana instead of a one-size-fits-all directive from Washington.”

“The answer isn’t simply in limiting guns,” said Andrea Helling, a spokeswoman for Tester. The senator also told the Missoulian newspaper that an assault weapons ban wouldn’t have stopped the shootings in Newtown.

Begich said he was “not interested” in a ban, during a Jan. 10 conference call with reporters.

“I don’t believe that we need to pile on new laws and suddenly that solves all the problems,” he said. Manchin told CNN on Jan. 13 that the debate can’t be “about guns and guns only and a “stand-alone ban” will “not go anywhere.”

Two freshmen also expressed skepticism about an assault weapons ban.

“There isn’t any amount of gun regulation or gun executive orders that will solve the problem of identifying people who could potentially do this and making sure they get the help and their families get the help so they don’t do this,” Heitkamp told North Dakota’s KXMB-TV and KXMC-TV Jan. 15.

Scott Ogden, a spokesman for King, said the senator “remains skeptical” about an assault weapons ban, though he was waiting for more details. And Collins is concerned that the proposed legislation is “far broader in the kinds of rifles that would be banned than was the case in the law in effect between 1994 and 2004,” said her spokesman, Kevin Kelley.

Further dimming prospects for the assault weapon ban, Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada and Mary Landrieu of Louisiana, both Democrats, voted against extending a previous ban in 2004. Neither has made any public statements since Newtown indicating that they will change their positions.

ROFL


That's a damn shame.

Will Dirty Harry Reid even allow the Senate to vote on it? I'm sure there are bunches of Democrats that don't want to go on record with a vote in the House and Senate

But, like a friend told me, in two years things can change dramatically.


If the Pubs lose the House, gun owners will be under direct assault. They will use the so-called "Research" by the CDC to impose their will.

Amazing those fools have the votes for any of their dumb ideas.

Dens are going to get killed in the 2014 senate races anyway.

I figured as much and will sell off some of my AR's tomorrow for a LARGE profit. **** mining for gold or the stock market, I bought a shit load of AR's and will sell them a month later for a 2k profit on each one of them.

Thanks Obama, thanks Feinstein! I'm starting to warm up to this "Hope and Change." :)

Heh, H-man, if I would have had it to do over again I would have bought about 50-100 more of the scary AK/AR guns.

True. However even Reid has said pretty much from the get go that the votes were not there and if anything the House Repubs would block it. I think they are going to make this push and then try to get the Pubs to settle for things like 10 round magazines as a compromise, etc.

Me too. It sucks living in the sticks sometimes.

I sold my Colt Match HBar AR15 at the beginning of December. :banghead: I made a good profit, but was late trying to replace it after the big assault rifle rampage.

I put in an order for a DDM4 V1 at your boys at Butts over 5 weeks ago. They don't return my calls. I have no idea if they're trying to get me one or just threw all my info away.

What's the difference? I thought Obama was going to issue an executive order repealing the 2nd Amendment.
