If it helps our cause, I'm all for it, but it sure smells like classic progressivism at it's finest. Cherry pick the Constitution to suit your purpose and agenda. It has a remarkdably similar tone to having the right to choose what goes on in a womens body. Use the Constitution to support abortion when it';s convenient for them to do so. Otherwise they act as if the Constitution doesn't exist. The Democratic Party firmly believes that the Second Amendment is an anachronism and should be repealed. That won't change.......ever! IMO.
Amen brother, I feel the same way. It's whats in it for me not what can I do for thee.

Re: Bipartisan Second Amendment

Yesterday's cloture vote in the Senate tells the tale.

16 Republican Senators stabbed Freedom right between the shoulder blades while 2 Democrats refused to pick up the knife.

Of course, with so many Republican backstabbers Harry Reid probably told those 2 we've got it covered and y'all have tough elections coming.

Now the Republican backstabbers are spinning it with "there needs to a debate" and many will later vote no to try and cover back home, but now things can pass with simple majority instead of the 60 to break filibuster.

Looks like the 16 killed filibuster, because the last one made Rand Paul look so much better than them and didn't want Paul, Cruz and Lee out in front of them on any thing.

Re: Bipartisan Second Amendment

I think they need 60 votes to close debate. That's why Reid wanted an agreement to limit the length of debate, which the GOP refused. In fact, traditional filibuster was about talking non-stop during debate until the other side simply gave up or the session ran out and Congress adjourned. Yesterday's vote was actually to open debate.

That's why our own idiot Chris Murphy could babble on for four hours the other day about the Newtown shooting. There's no stop to how much political mileage he's gonna try to get out of that tragedy.

Then if the Senate does pass anything, it still has to go to the House, which is GOP dominated.

The real problem with the vote to open debate, which is what happened Thursday, is that it builds momentum for the anti-Second Amendment side, and momentum is always bad.

Having said all this, right now the prospect to defeat this bill entirely doesn't look too good. There's a lot of Mental Health stuff being put in this bill, and that stuff has bipartisan support. There's also things like universal recognition of state permits (every state will have to recognize any state's pistol permits), as well as looser provisions for the interstate transportation of weapons for hunting purposes, both of which are on the NRA wish list. Even if these latter provisions doesn't survive, the fact that things like it are floating out there in the Senate tells me there's enough GOP and red state Democrats out there looking for something they can take home.

Right now, 60 percent chance something with universal background checks in it will pass, IMHO.

Oh, by the way:

"As Senate Democrats struggle to build support for new gun control legislation, the American Civil Liberties Union now says it’s among those who have “serious concerns” about the bill...."

Let the Dems have all their states that can not financially support their own agenda and go farther in the hole each year.

The working class has supported it as long as they can, it is now to the point where there are more taking than giving.

Now it is time for a real change, a change back to what works.

+1 Broz ! It is high time for a "real change" .

For the OP I would like to share my opinion concerning "Democrats for the 2nd Amendment"

God knows I hate to admit it but my mother voted for Obama along with my step father. My mother carries a pistol with her everywhere she goes . So does my step father , does this mean that they support the 2nd Amendment ?
A BIIIIIGGGGGGG HECK NO!!
I don't care what any Democrat says concerning our 2ND Amendment right if they voted for Obama then they voted AGAINST OUR 2ND Amendment !!!!!!!

Folks it is time to admit that the Old Democrat party that your grand pappy voted for all of those years (and is why you probably vote Democrat) isn't the democratic party of old.! . This of course is just my humble opinion.

I wised up finally and started looking at canidates a little closer and started payin attention to what they stood for. In todays electronic age there is no reason for anyone to vote without being informed on what each canidate represents. I explained this to my oldest granddaughter, who was old enough to vote in the past election. Like many colleage students she drank from the Obama koolaide stand, she is now learning the error of her ways. There may be hope for her yet!

Re: Bipartisan Second Amendment

The only real reason to belong to any party is to be able to vote in the primaries. In a two-party system, there isn't much choice to begin with. In the general election, yes, I agree, look at the candidate, not the party.

One more thing driving this debate in the Senate is the presence of the Newtown moms. No Senator, R or D, wants the Newtown moms to show up on TV at his/her next election. That's really scaring a lot of Republicans who would otherwise put an end to this bill now.

So where are the victims of crime in this debate? We need people, especially women, speaking out on their experiences lawfully using firearms to defend themselves. I know of women who felt threatened by knuckleheads, who were able to flatly put a stop to it merely by displaying a Glock. Not flashing it around or behaving recklessly, but merely by placing their hands on the weapon and giving the knuckleheads a glimpse. NRA needs to get people like this onto Capital Hill.

This is absolutely untrue.
Its a cute little web page, but complete BS. My guess is that its nothing more than a front group designed to give the democrats cover. How can you possibly say "it seems legit" without knowing where their funding comes from? That is idiotic.

Here in Colorado, there were a number of alleged Pro Second Amendment democrats that ran on Pro 2A platforms. Guess what? They all voted for all the stupid gun bills that were just passed. Mike McLachlan was a prime example of this.

When they need the votes, they all did what ever they wanted.

So please, spare me the crap. If you feel bad about voting for Obama, that's your problem.
