Generally yes. I'm surprised she voted for this knowing that next year will be a very difficult election for her. Perhaps she has forgotten just how important gun rights are to the people of Louisiana.



What a fool. Its apparent that the life of a Senator has gone to her head and she forgot exactly who put her in that seat.

Why do you not want background checks? Most illegal guns are bought by people for people who can't get them legally.

Exactly..... Which is ALREADY illegal to straw purchase. What makes you think they're going to follow another law?

Why do we need more laws on the books when most of them on the books now are not enforced..

Reid voted no for procedural purposes. He can bring the amendment back to the floor later.

Schumer, what a fricking LIAR. Paraphrase: "Every cop would agree that concealed carry would be a disaster."

It seems like sort of a 'water is wet' statement.

Am I missing something?

So is using the deaths of children as a tool to push for laws you support. Happens everytime there is a tragedy, somebody uses it to infringe on people's freedom.

He's never seen a issue he believed was a "states' rights issue" until, apparently, today. That was so intellectually dishonest, I'm stunned.

Amendment ensuring lawful gun purchasers the right to purchase guns from licensed gun dealers to give as a bona fide gift did not receive enough votes to pass.

There was more to that bill than the headline stated...as Cruz said it would make a felon of a father if he gave the son money to go buy a gun for him. The son would also be a felon.

It criminalized innocent activity because it was too broad.
