What happens next with gun control in the Senate?

The Senate will debate new gun control laws and the Second Amendment for at least the next two weeks, so what should people expect in the historic debate?

Houston_Gun_Show_at_the_George_R._Brown_Convention_CenterThe most contentious issue will be the expanded background checks proposed by a bipartisan pair of senators, Joe Manchin and Pat Toomey, who helped the gun control issue make it to the Senate floor and past a threatened GOP filibuster.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says background checks will be the first amendment to the gun control bill to face a floor debate. Expect that debate to start next Tuesday, as the filibuster’s supporters will probably use 30 hours of floor time to delay the measure.

Starting the debate on Tuesday also gives senators time to speak with constituents on the weekend and travel back to Washington.

    I think that many on the Senate want to move this forward in order to get it out and voted down. I do not expect it to clear the Senate in any form and then it has to go to the House that is controlled by the Republicans.. I wonder if the fraud and chief will spring(out of our money) for all his children from Conn. to come down for that.

    If they make this 12 year Marine a criminal, so be it, they will find out I learned how to shoot and shoot well, come for me and mine? Bring body bags as I will go down under your fire but, won’t go alone, you cool-aid demo-rats and Rino’s, your all a bunch of brown shirt drunks on your power, sick idiots who need to find a brain. They are control freaks and it has to end or God will judge this evil nation, homosexual marriage? A distortion of God and Nature. Kill the unborn is choice, ask the baby in the womb, the most dangerious place for them. Destroy the family and let the brown shirt Nazi’s raise your children is a abombination and hateful, selfish people want, Godly people give.

    Pro God, Pro Gun, And all country huh ? Then where is my comment that should not have offended anyone that is not gay, looney left, or an obama supporter ? I did not use foul language and just spoke my mind ! If the moderators don’t like what I had to say then send me an e-mail with their justification for the censoring and I will post it all over the internet and let America be the judge !

    The ‘debate on gun control’ was settled in 1791, with the ratification of Amendment II. “Shall not be infringed” is not ‘open to interpretation’. Any elected, so-called ‘representative of the people’ who attempts to deny the rights of his – or her – employers is either ignorant of the Constitution he (or she) took an oath to uphold, and unfit to serve, or a traitor.

    The next bill gets shot down (pun intended) by congressmen that want to keep their jobs in 2014.

    Why would the Senators travel Home this weekend and ask their constituents anything?

    they don’t do what we ask them to do.

    • Black Rain

      Mine sure doesn’t. His name is Mark Kirk from Illinois.

  • donl

    I called my senators and left them a message: Don’t cave to our Communist president on anything!!

  • atchafa

    These SOBs need to start doing their job and get off this immigration and gun control tactics. Obama should be telling senators and congress to get Americans back to work. Then he can get revenue and stop taxing Americans every time we turn around. Obama doesn’t have me fooled.

More in 2nd Amend.
