Gun Control vote failed by 6

6 votes were all that was needed to get Gun Control Measures through the Senate. It was close but failed. Please note the Republican Senators who went against their party.

Oh yes, it'll be back but hopefully the movement to strip Americans of their rights will have withered and it will fail by a far larger margin. Instead of standing upon the graves of children as a soap box to further their agenda, hopefully gun control advocates will acknowledge that enforcing the laws that are currently on the books would have prevented many of these crimes. Since many of the crimes that are prevented or repelled by a well armed citizen go unreported, there's no way to measure the number of children who were protected from those who would place them or their family in harms way. If you want your heart strings tugged, look into the eyes of a child at the funeral of their mom or dad who was killed by a person who doesn't care about law. If you want to protect children, go into the inner cities and enforce the laws on the books where there is already strict gun control in place and leave law abiding citizens alone.

We will ALWAYS be having this fight. I am glad to see that at least there is still a wee bit of common sense among some politicians. But we cannot rest----keep on your representatives and don't let your guard down.

Re: Gun Control vote failed by 6

Actually, the legislation had a couple of sections that were pretty well thought out.

One would require states to develop reporting procedures to insure that all folks who meet the criteria for being on the NICS list (criminals, domestic abusers, people adjudicated mentally incompetent, etc.) would be reported. Since some states don't do this either completely, or at all, this would be a step forward.

Also, there was a provision to require states to allow transport of secured weapons by private individuals through those states. This would end stuff like hunters getting their weapons confiscated in places like JFK airport.

You need to let your Senator know what you think of his/her vote one way or the other. This ain't over.

To stand and fight, against all that oppress or attack, is a basic, fundamental, inherent human right that transcends any law written by man this is what the Second Amendment proclaims, as a reminder to the individual of his or her birthright and as warning and epitaph to those who would attempt to act or govern without regard for that birthright.

All have the right to self defense. How do you legitimately take that right from any one? Ex-con or "mentally ill"? An ex-con by definition has paid his/her debt, if not they still belong in prison. Mentally Ill, as defined by who and for what purpose, what is being done/talked about today goes far beyond "being adjudicated mentally incompetent", veteran's are already being denied their rights under the guise of this now. What qualifies as domestic abuse today goes beyond absurd and virtually denys entire households their ability to defend themselves because some one has raised their voice.

"One would require states", can you say state's rights?
