Assault weapons proposal delayed

2nd Amend.

Assault weapons proposal delayed

The Senate Judiciary Committee postponed a markup for new gun control legislation for one week, delaying action on a controversial proposal to ban assault weapons.

The postponement also allows more time for bipartisan negotiations between Sens. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) to reach a deal to expand background checks for all gun purchases. Those talks have stalled over Coburn’s objections to permanent record keeping of gun purchases becoming a part of background checks.

Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) announced at the beginning of Thursday’s session that consideration of four gun-related bills, including an assault weapons ban offered by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), would be rescheduled for next week.

    Their strategy is to delay it so that no one notices when they attempt a vote. There is too much opposition currently, so they are buying time to attempt a round two.

    • violater1

      You are absolutely correct! That is SOP for the evil ones!

    • 7papa7

      It should not be delayed it should be canceled. The second amendment gives us the right to keep and bare arms and that this will NOT be infringed upon. No where in the second amendment does it state what kind of weapons, how large of magazines or any other restrictions. If the morons in DC want to change the constitution let them do it right. They don’t because they KNOW that the people and states would NEVER pass such an anti American amendment. It is time for them to grow up and start defending the Constitution they swore to defend and uphold. IMHO trying to go around the Constitution is grounds for impeachment because it is a treasonous offense.

    Feinstein doesn’t know which end of a gun shots a bullet and she is making rules? Blind leading the blind.

    • violater1

      I hope you are right and she has to shoot her firearm that she carries soon perhaps it will be a suicidal accident! What a blessing that would be for America and all of its citizens!

      • garysvent

        Send her the following instructions: “Put sidearm in ear. Pull trigger to see if you can hit anything anyone will miss”

    • garysvent

      The blind leading the sighted.

  • Gary Ray

    we will know who votes yes on this bill. we will be watching .

    • violater1

      Like they give a fat rats rectum! They have proven that via past actions!

  • GreenDragon

    Cowards they are, they will try and slip it in under cover of another bill. Another fine example of our NON representative government at work. Let’s see what Senator “Scary Mary” Landrieau does. Louisiana voted more than 70% to protect the 2nd amendment with a state constitutional amendment opposing any law that interferes with the second amendment. I wonder if she will remember how her constituents voted and how we WILL remember , now that she up for re-election.

    • violater1

      Might be a good idea to email her and give her feeble memory a boost! They have a tendancy to go braindead conviently!

        No, just remove her.

    • scootersbikeshop

      Will vote against Mary Landrieu next year. Time to get rid of her

  • Eric

    I guess the commies dont have the votes.They will probably try to sneak it by somehow,maybe attaching it last minute to some other bill.

    • Steve Harper

      The N.R.A. will never let this get away from them!!

    Hitler obozo has his favorite pen ready when no one notices.

    • violater1

      I would like to read some good news for a change! Like for instance that some well respected conservative has gone to his office took his (obama’s) pen turned it horizontally and shoved it up his rectum! Now that would be good news as well as humorous!

      • https://www.facebook.com/app_scoped_user_id/761645580/ B Alan Eisen

        It wouldn’t touch either side, and a waste of a good pen. Just squirt naphta in while smoking. Problem solved.

  • CaptTurbo

    I hope it isn’t a ploy for buying time to stage another massacre to garner more support from the useful idiots.

    • violater1

      I feel from your post that you suspect what I have for some time just cannot prove it! If I had it to bet I would bet A large sum of money that this massacre was a set up deal!
      I became even more sispicious when I checked out the other shootings histories and facts prove that they have all been performed by registered Demoncrat libtards you can check it oout all the way back to Kennedy Oswald was a liberal Communist and as for the 2 boys at Columbine they were from liberal Demoncrat families both! Reagans shooter was an idiot retard Demoncrat as well as the shooter of Arizona Rep. Gifford! These facts have come forward so now the mental retarded Demoncraps are going to claim mental illness to get their registration bill recognized!
      My suggestion is that we ban and register all Demoncraps progressives commie facist sicialist mentally disordered individuals! 1) Have them psychiatrically examined and then remove their right to vote, own firearms, drive, or even breath after declaring them a disease that is a menace to society! Then we can have them neutered since they support abortion this will prevent them from breeding more of their kind into this world! Those of them that are homosexual will also be neutered in case down the road they change their feeble minds!

      • CaptTurbo

        Just look at the lengthy list of dead people that followed the Clintons. No morality at all. Just whatever it takes to get and hold power. In this instance the target is the Constitution, The Bill of Rights, and Freedom. There are no limits, rules, or impediments in the quest to destroying it.

        • Ed Williams

          Per our Founders, “We the People” are intended to be the limits, rules, and especially the impediments to their quest.

          • CaptTurbo

            I would like to believe that we can still turn this mess around.

  • $13614178

    Schumer and Coburn , now there is a good start for a new three stooges comedy team .

  • violater1

    We can only hope or perhaps contact Senator Coburn asking his efforts to kill the bill! Wishful thinking anyway!

  • reggiec

    I hear that some of those Democrats that got elected by claiming they supported the Second Amendment are looking for any slimy rock to crawl under they can find. 2014 could end their careers if they vote for gun control.

  • dad666

    The Assault on the second ammendment will not hold up in court and is a serious waste of valuable time and resources that shoud be used to address serious issues. GUN CONTROL IS NO ABOUT GUNS, IT IS ABOUT CONTROL. You clowns look like a bunch of lying frauds and should be removed from office.
    NOMORE

  • Ed Williams

    So, Coburn is planning a 2014 retirement, eh? I keep telling you, folks:
    INCUMBENTS- the “Politically Correct” endangered species!

  • Ranchman

    I WILL NOT register my firearms!! I WILL NOT go through a background check to give my son a rifle!! I WILL NOT comply with ANY more gun control legislation!! There is no “gun control,” it’s PEOPLE CONTROL!! If we continue to allow the subversion of our inalienable rights, we will wind up with NO RIGHTS at all!! The American people, myself included, have had enough!! First of all, all of the mass shootings in the last several years stink to high heaven, they’re just waaayyyy too coincidental and convenient for these socialists in Washington DC!! Their intent, their agenda and their plan from the beginning was to disarm the American people. When that day comes, we will be slaves to the tyranny they are waiting to unleash upon us. We will live under the most oppressive conditions they can impose on us and we will have no recourse but to comply because they will have confiscated all of our firearms. We’ll be defenseless against them. I REFUSE TO LIVE THAT WAY!! Get ready, folks. Something very wicked is headed our way, all at the hands of our own government.

    MOLON LABE!!
    Remember 1776 & Keep Your Powder DRY!!

  • James Crawford

    They’re all determined to make themselves expendable. So much for leadership.
