Why Are These Six Democratic Senators On The Fence About Universal Background Ch

LINK

quote:

After axing the assault weapons ban from the Senate’s comprehensive gun violence prevention plan, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) is struggling to scrape together enough votes to pass the centerpiece of the plan: universal background checks. Republicans are refusing to vote for it, and even several Democrats in red states are wavering on their support. According to Greg Sargent at the Washington Post, these key votes include Senators Kay Hagan (D-NC), Mary Landrieu (D-LA), Mark Pryor (D-AR), Joe Donnelly (D-IN), and Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND).


I bet she will vote for it if pressured...

Because they are up for reelection in 2014 and are considered by many, to possibly lose their seats.

I just hope the idiots of Louisiana will remember Landrieu voted for Obamacare.

So reducing the ability for one to defend oneself and their family is the right thing?

Bull shite. Dear Harry is scrambling to find a way to shut up the Northeastern Dems until after the elections. Slim chance that this will be voted on.

This bull shite bill that Harry Reid is feigning faux support for is not the "right thing"

You are just mad because you, like many on the left, want to ban guns. This is viewed as an opportunity to advance that cause that is being squandered...

This is why a-holes wanted to jam this shite through as fast as they could. They knew once emotions died down and thought was put into this they would lose.

Never let a synthetic crisis go to waste.

Maybe it's possible he doesn't hate freedom and personal responsibility as much as you do?

Neither Donnelly nor Heitkamp are up for reelection until 2018. Both have only been a Senator for less than 90 days.

Is this supposed to be news? How many folks in Congress ever take a tough vote? Feinstein sure doesn't have the moral authority to lecture anyone on taking tough votes. After all, she voted for the Iraq War, and so did Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton.

Remember Bill Clinton a couple of months ago?
quote:

Clinton closed his remarks with a warning to big Democratic donors that ultimately many Democratic lawmakers will be defeated if they choose to stand with the president.

“Do not be self-congratulatory about how brave you for being for this” gun control push, he said. “The only brave people are the people who are going to lose their jobs if they vote with you.”

Bill knows exactly what the NRA can do when riled.

I don't think the NRA has that much power. As Bill Maher put it, there will be no assault weapons ban because Democrats like guns to, especially in red states, and they know what Michael Bloomberg's long-term goal is.

The only reason Donnelly was elected was because his Republican opponent was a tool and he knows it. His seat is precarious in Indiana and he could never vote for increased regulation of firearms.
