And with the assistance of the following "Democrats" a bill to make even the most modest non-controlling kind of improvements to gun control fall short:
Mark Pryor of Arkansas; Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota; Mark Begich of Alaska; and Max Baucus of Montana.Thanks for nothin'. It also means we lose again to a Party that is made up of geniuses like this:
Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) warned Wednesday that "radical Islamists" are being "trained to act like Hispanic[s]" and cross the U.S.-Mexico border.So, you hate both the them! And lying assholes like this:
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), who has been raising fears that expanding background checks would bring about a national gun registry, conceded Wednesday that the legislation doesn’t actually do that.Heckuva job on reform Harry...who could have anticipated? Other than everyone but you?
A man protesting new gun control measures being considered by the Senate was arrested Tuesday on the Capitol grounds when police discovered he was carrying a loaded handgun, CNN has learned.
