Whatever. I don't give a shite about Feinstein, Harry Reid or any particular senator. I do think this was a gutless vote for what they perceive to be their immediate (and very local) political self-interest.

No matter. Eventually expanded background checks will pass. Inevitable. May just take another highly publicized tragedy or an Republican in the White House.

Why do you wish to pass laws which don't make us safer and yet sell it to the public as if it does? Why?

If you want to talk a out mental health fine.

May or may not have "made us safer". I'm not selling anything to anybody. I just think it was a cowardly vote by guys who are afraid of the gun lobby. If you think it was on principle, you're kidding yourself.

frick, the NRA thugs (not the rank and file membership) would lobby against any type of restriction. You do realize it's about money to those guys . . .and their firearm manufacturing sugar daddies, right?

Really? Have you read NRA stance on the mental health issue?

I don't care how it was voted. If it were cowardly it was a shitty bill that wouldn't make us safer period. You can't explain how it would. I hate to break it to you but criminals ignore the laws!

Democrats should take from this the same lesson that Republicans take from abortion, and that is that the energy will always be on the side of the folks that risk losing rights. In this context, Gun owners = Women of child-bearing age.

I agree. Shame on them and Obama trying to capitalize on a tragedy.

Exactly . Lisa Murkowski had announced earlier she would vote NO and then voted AYE once failure was assured. She's a Dem at heart.



She got a damn good scare last time she was up for election. Lived too much of her life in DC and not enough in Alaska.
