Re: List of Senators

They may not be able to protect us but they are building a facility in Utah that will be capable of monitoring and storing every phone call, google search, post on Longrangehunting, and any other electronic communication. Don't worry, the dude in charge of NSA said the system wouldn't be used to spy on US citizens. Newsflash, all of our asses will be on a watch list if we are not already.

The gov will use this incident to gain power and tighten the screws, the folks will probably demand that more rights be taken away in the interest of security. I really do believe we are in irreversible decline. If you boys can, I strongly suggest you spend some of your assets for a personal water supply, look out a garden spot, start thinking about how to store food. If you have the land get a milk cow and build a chicken house. I've lived in this manner before and its not all that bad. If nothing happens the assets you accumulate will be worth more in two or three yrs than you gave for it. If happy times show up again, sell all the stuff and go back to playing golf and screwing with Facebook.

I'm sure the legislative flurry and posturing will follow. It always does. It placates the sheeple. Worthless platatudes with no visible result or nothing to focus those platitudes on.

Like the current assualt against the Constitution and the Second Amendment, all 'smoke and mirrors' perpetuated by politicians who are self serving and case less about their constitutients wished.

The beat goes on................
Unfortunately, the cancer appears to be moving inland, much faster than I would have ever expected. Living in a more rural part of MA, its interesting that I am surrounded by conservatives, have some property, and never had much, or any of my shooting or hunting effected. I've had a full carry permit since I arrived here as do most of my buddies, and have had no problem owning and shooting my AR's and handguns. Not much different from when I lived down south. In some ways better. A citizen couldn't get a concealed carry permit in NC. The local law are good guys. Don't get me wrong. I would much rather live out west and get away from the screwballs that run this state, but since I make my living here, I have tried to make the best of it. The problem won't be where in the country you live, it will be in your cities.......like Denver. Doesn't appear much different from the mentality of Boston, Albany, Trenton, Chicago, etc. If you think you are immune out there, my only advice is......don't drop your guard!

Re: List of Senators

Good job to everyone who wrote your senators! They voted, for the most part, on the side of the Constitution.

Now my biggest concern is what Obama's plans are. He seems to be throwing a tantrum about it like a little child. I for one feel that his focus needs to be on Boston right now, but the gun vote today was certainly a huge slap in the face for him. Good work everyone, and keep it up. I'm sure there will be more to come still!

Re: List of Senators

It looks like a hail of letters, emails and phone calls from Oklahomans got Senator Coburns attention. It looked like he was about to go limp on us but manned up in the end. Don't think this is over folks. Round two is being planned and will require even more diligence and attention to defeat.

Obama got his nose mashed and he is pissed. This may be a good thing, he seems to lose support when he throws temper tantrums in public.

Re: List of Senators

We are not out of the woods yet. Harry Reeds no-vote was procedural, and enables him to put it up for another vote. I sm. sure that Obama will beat the crap out of the red state democrats(or pay them off) to change their position. Hopefully they will hang tough.our President was a pitiful site on TV this evening.
