List of Senators

I figured I would provide a list of senators who voted to move forward with the background checks in the senate, which in effect avoided a filibuster against the bill. I encourage anyone who sees one of your state senators on the list to write them and make sure they understand how you feel about the bill. It's time for action folks!!!

Here's the link to the lists:

    Both of the Democomies from Montana voted for it. Despite all the e-mails.

    Re: List of Senators

    And both the senators of Idaho voted against it.............I really like the format of how the list goes and how they voted. It is really easy to compare the yeas and the nays. I was really surprised to see some of the senators that voted against it and I would venture to guess that there are a few senators next time around that are going to be nervous AS THEY SHOULD BE! Don't stop, keep on writing. I think Feinstein is getting tired of hearing from me.......

    I'm about as conservative as it gets. Why do we care if psychopaths are put on a no gun list? And why do we care if we have background checks at any purchase? I don't believe in gun control but this bill isn't an instance where the gov is out stepping its bounds.

    First, you say you don't believe in gun control?? this bill is gun control.

    Second, do you think the kid with mental issues from Connecticut obtained the guns he used with legal process? What good will more back ground checks do for mentally challenged people that take someone else's guns like he did?

    We already have back ground checks for purchase???

    This Bill is indeed a bill where the Gov is out stepping it's bounds. It is a step to unarm law abiding citizens. It will do nothing to stop what has been going on. It is only being done to disarm us. Give an inch and they will take a mile.
