    The current legislation is watered down to the “Gun Show Loop Hole” which is more or less a joke. Private sale checks are not going to get passed and I think House will jump on board to save face since the new law will be sufficiently weak. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>
    <o:p> </o:p>
    So the question is will the Left and Right slap each other on the back and say good job, or will the progressives keeping on chanting for more legislation?<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p> </o:p>
    And slightly off topic here, but did anyone hear about the mass stabbing in TX? Seams it was mostly a media blackout on the subject because it does not project the gun control agenda.<o:p></o:p>

    Thoughts?<o:p></o:p>

    Yes there was a mass stabing in TX - 14 injured no fatalities. No big news since no one was killed.

    Im surprised this wasn't used at a add for control... see with no guns the wacos can only cut you up.

    Good thing the guys didnt watch too much "Kill Bill"

    Sometimes when I want to get some cheap entertainment I check out the FBO of Obama Support "democraticunderground.com".......I think they are starting to implode...

    "This failure should fall on the shoulders of Harry Reid and President Obama. Harry Reid's failure to fix the 60 vote threshold and fillibuster rules have once again come home to roost. Reid's weak leadership in the senate and his viewing of the senate rules as sacrosanct have reaped nothing but democratic failures.

    As for Obama, his severe lack of political skills have provided failure once again. President Obama has zero abilities when it comes to political tactics or strategy. His laziness is one of his main weaknesses. He has never taken the time to build relationships with individual lawmakers on both sides. Doing this takes time and he refuses to make the necessary time to learn how the whole process works. For example, the moment the Newtown massacre happened he immediately made a huge mistake. Instead of taking advantage of the situation and never letting a crisis got o waste what did Obama do? He asked for a study to be conducted! He appointed Biden to go on some sort of fact finding mission about gun violence. This tremendous act of incompetence gave the NRA and Republicans much needed time to gather their forces and come up with a counter attack that ended today with a victory. Instead of learning from President Johnson, on how to be a leader who can pass legislation, how to develop relationships with reps/senators, and how to be a successful domestic president he has learned nothing from past presidents and he has learned nothing from his 1st 4 yrs in office.

    If Obama would of taken advantage of public outcry, all the media attention he could of rushed a bill through Congress and won the day! Just like 9/11, did Bush waste time, no he took advantage of the high emotions and rushed a bill through (which turned out to be an awful bill with many flaws)Congress. Even though the bill sucked, the point is he got it passed because he took advantage of the situation at the time. Obama just does not get it, he is lost when it comes to political strategy. He is always outflanked, out maneuvered, out negotiated, and out thought by his opponents and today is just another example of it.

    Yep red state dems help kill it because some are coming up for election. Same sex marriage, immigration, and gun control was too much for their constituents. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>

    This is somebody who bought into your line of logic, stating this, that's the utter irony that I believe you are overlooking...:deal, To me it was clear from the beginning....

    "As for Obama, his severe lack of political skills have provided failure once again. President Obama has zero abilities when it comes to political tactics or strategy. His laziness is one of his main weaknesses. He has never taken the time to build relationships with individual lawmakers on both sides.

    Just Sayin.....

    The point is, that it would appear that the base over there is consuming itself.....oh....don't forget this nugget...

    It would appear that Same sex marriage, immigration, and gun control was too much for democratic constituents.
