    The president used up a LOT of that precious capital he had to ram these bills through and the big fella in DC got body slammed today because I'm thinking even the Democrat party understands that the vast majority of Americans (outside of Portland, Oregon) do not want more control. (See Gallup's latest poll showing that "gun control" is a 4% "importance" factor)

    Now as for Oregon's attempt here is what WILL happen:
    1 - Sen. Arnie Roblan in the face of heavy pressure from his caucus will swing the committee to passing these four watered down considerably, bills to the senate floor where they will be defeated 16-14 with all GOP senators and 2 Dem's joining them in the "no" vote.
    or
    2 - Sen. Arnie Roblan in the face of heavy pressure from his own constituency of the coast area and some inland, will be an "abstain" and the bills will die tomorrow in committee.
    or
    3 - Sen. Arnie Roblan will vote "no" in committee joining the two GOP senators and the bills die.
    No matter what happens in my scenarios, you can go to Vegas on the fact that NO gun bills (pro or con) will proceed out of this legislature.
    Now I've given you libs in Portland your marching orders.....go get Arnie and you got yourself some gun bills....but then you've gotta convince Betsy Johnson and at least ONE more Dem not to vote "no" if it comes to the floor.
    Tune into this thread on Friday for results as ALL bills must be out of committee's by tomorrow.
    You all can now begin the flaming but gun control is not going to go down this year anyway....keep trying though and keep blaming the mysterious shady "Koch Bros" and the EVIL NRA! Bwhaaahahahaha or just maybe it's Americans? Naw.

    Thank God!

    Now we can move on to things that really matter. Getting the rest of the Teabaggers OUT of the House!

    A huge majority of Americans - something between 80% and 90% depending on the poll - support expanded background checks.

    This is a defeat for 80% of Americans.

    The Congress doesn't work for the American people - they work for the lobbyists like the NRA. Until we get money out of politics, Congress will continue to cater to lobbyists first, second, and third...and to their constituents, last.

    Don't ruin dodger's ejaculation, Andrew. He probably needs three tissues for this one.

    Drink much before,during and after lunch DODGEr?

    My question to you DODGEr, is what kind of gun control do we have right now? Are you for the background checks we have right now?

    I'm sure he'll get excited again the next time some more kids are murdered - unfortunately, probably not too far in the future.

    I don't own a gun so I don't understand why background checks are going to stop a criminal from committing a crime?

    I also don't understand why people are against back ground checks. My car is more dangerous then a gun and it's registered.

    If it only stops one what the harm?

    The reason for being against the checks is the simple fear that the Gummit will know what kind of guns they have. Because when the Gummit comes for your guns they will only have to round up the ones that are in their database.
    Monster, when they come to take you to the concentration camps you'll understand.

    :wink:
