The point I am making is they are only emotionally invested in the issue which should not be the basis for law making.



On that we can agree, but you know emotion! It's the new logic.

I dunno... due process? You know there's white Christians on that watch list right? This is how we ended up with the Patriot Act. SMFH

ETA: None of these bills will pass by the way.

There's plenty of Due Process to be found down in GITMO. LOL

And, the way we wound up with the Patriot Act is because there was way too much liberalism and political correctness in America.

As an aside SCOTUS just ruled that States can decide on AWB... the contortions should be fun to watch.

Next up appears to be the GOP bill creating a three day delay for those on the watch lists, which forces the .gov to get a court order to stop the sale. Wanna know who is really playing partisan games with this whole issue? Sit back and watch while the Dems vote against this, even though it would pass if they would back it and even though it is more than we do now.

Sounds good to me. I'd much rather leave it to the states and my own state legislature than a bunch of asshats from a district halfway across the country who don't know anything about the issue or the people of my state and who don't care to learn.

The court didn't "rule" anything. They declined to hear the case. There is a difference. It simply means the lower court rulings stand for now, but it does not mean those rulings can't be appealed or heard in the future.

Not exactly accurate, they refused to hear a lower court ruling on the New York and Connecticut stipulations on semi-automatic rifles. There is still a private case working its way up that is being argued differently.

If we're maxed out on terrorism, then new gun laws won't make any difference on it either. So why are we doing this again? It won't prevent terrorism.

At least that one guy who talked for 14 hours did something. I wonder if the media will hate on him for it as much as they did when Cruz filibustered?

Well, considering that all the congress is doing is writing laws to screw with us, I was just curious.

And if we're actually "at our max" and the terrorists are winning, then perhaps we should up our game just a little.

Perhaps harsh language.
Or Obama can maybe draw a red line or something.

And there's #2. The Cornyn amendment from the GOP has failed. Currently 52 in favor, 47 against.

I'll admit, I don't know the procedure here. Since it requires 60 votes rather than a simple majority, was this defeated due to some other rule process, or is it because of threat of filibuster?
