There were 500 deaths because without BG checks for private sales, internet sales, and gun show sales, guns are easily acquired by criminals.
Guns don't kill people. People with guns kill people.
And they do it more effectively.
Yawn, when Obama and Holder enforce the laws we already have, we can worry about new ones. There are 68,000 applications for permits from past felons, which is a felony itself. As of this date, not one has been prosecuted by Holder.

Did one of those felons get a gun? Would prosecuting any of those kept anyone from getting a gun?
Our goal is to keep guns out of criminal hands, not to jam our courts with paperwork violations.
Here is a good explanation why a lot of gun laws are hard to enforce.

I agree, that we need better enforcement of current laws, but that doesnt mean we cant also strengthen the laws with expanded BG checks.
By the way, gun law enforcement was no better under Republican leadership.

The republicans were not trying to break the second amendment either. I guess laws mean nothing to you, just like illegal entering our country. Why pass laws if they mean nothing. Let's go back to the old west.

What is being proposed is not a new law, it's just patching the holes in the old law. We already require BG checks for store purchases, why not all other method of sales?(gun shows, internet, private sales)

"Right now in the Senate, Mitch McConnell and John Cornyn are actively whipping Senators to shut down debate on the House continuing resolution so that Harry Reid can gut it with just 51 votes,” a senior congressional staffer with intimate knowledge of the situation said in an email to Breitbart News.“Unbelievably, they actually are leading the fight to fully fund Obamacare.”

Good morning Crow. Missed you last night. I hope you have enjoyed the beautiful morning we have been blessed with again. Awww, loving FALL weather and the 70s. Can't wait to see all the fall colors again. Our family is trying to figure where to go see all the colors again. Ohio provided beautiful color last year. We also visited relatives. Across the Ohio River in Indiana provides some awesome colors too. Before you get to it's flatness. Of course all of Kentucky with our plentiful hills and trees is truly one of God's masterpieces. We are so Lucky in Kentucky.

You are right about Trayvon. Armed with a gun instead of a bag of skittles would have probably had a different outcome.

I am listen to our PRESIDENT at the UN. Other countries hanging on to his every word of course.

I hope you have a wonderful day. I will.

Rand Paul on Obamacare: Democrats will get what they want

WASHINGTON (CNN)- Sen. Rand Paul acknowledged Saturday that it is increasingly unlikely Republicans in Congress can repeal President Barack Obama's signature health care law.

"We probably can't defeat or get rid of Obamacare," Sen. Paul told reporters.

Mitch McConnell Rejects Ted Cruz Push To Filibuster Bill Defunding Obamacare

WASHINGTON -- Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) doesn't back the push by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) to vote against bringing up a bill to defund Obamacare, a McConnell aide told The Huffington Post.

"Senator McConnell supports the House Republicans' bill and will not vote to block it, since it defunds Obamacare and funds the government without increasing spending by a penny," McConnell spokesman Don Stewart said.

Until now, McConnell has been largely quiet as Cruz has been ramping up his calls on Senate Republicans to filibuster the funding bill when it comes up for a vote this week. The measure, passed by the House Thursday, would do two things: fund the government past Oct. 1 and defund President Obama's health care law. Since Democrats control the Senate, and since they've already vowed to strip out the Obamacare provision and only hold a clean vote on funding the government, Cruz is urging Republicans to vote against bringing up the bill at all -- and be willing to risk a government shutdown. On top of that, Cruz has argued that anyone who even votes to bring up the bill is, in effect, voting for Obamacare.

Stewart said McConnell is far more interested in voting directly on the bill to defund Obamacare.

"He will also vote against any amendment that attempts to add Obamacare funding back into the House Republicans' bill," Stewart said. "If and when the Majority Leader goes down that path, Washington Democrats will have to decide -- without hiding behind a procedural vote -- whether or not to split with their leadership and join Republicans and their constituents in opposing the re-insertion of Obamacare funding into the House-passed bill."

Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas), the senior senator from Cruz's home state and the number-two Republican in the Senate, also doesn't support Cruz's filibuster strategy.

"Sen. Cornyn will not block a bill that defunds Obamacare," Cornyn spokeswoman Megan Mitchell told The Huffington Post.

Earlier Monday, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) also rejected Cruz's strategy, saying it's "not the best tactic" for Republicans to risk a government shutdown over Obamacare.

It's solid truth that when someone can't debate nor construct anything in their own words, these links are the only obvious outlets they have to speak through.

Ted Cruz’s Flinty Path

The fall television season kicks into gear this week, with tons of new stuff, but before you check out any of it, you owe yourself a bigger treat. Go back and watch Chris Wallace’s interview with Ted Cruz on “Fox News Sunday.”

That’s entertainment. For starters there’s Wallace’s demeanor: I would almost swear I caught him holding his nose. There’s his bafflement, the bafflement of an entire nation, about what Cruz hopes to accomplish with his doomed campaign to defund Obamacare.(Hint: he keeps himself in the spotlight. Could a cause be worthier?)

There’s Cruz’s sickly look after Wallace recites derisive statements about him from fellow Republicans and he’s reminded that even in his party and even on Fox, the distaste for him is robust.

But the best part, the belly laugh, is when Cruz is asked to respond to those digs.

“There are lots of folks in Washington that can choose to throw rocks,” he says,“and I’m not going to reciprocate.” Because he’s nobler than that. Because he takes the high, unrocky road.

Please. Cruz has been casting stones since he first moved into his Senate offices nine months ago. His quarry is bottomless. Let us not soon forget the hearings into Chuck Hagel’s confirmation as secretary of defense, when Cruz wondered aloud whether Hagel had taken honorariums from countries hostile to the United States. This insinuation was groundless and shameless, but it paid off, in a fashion. A newcomer to the Senate, Cruz was the dark star of the proceedings.

This week he is blithely putting the lawmakers in his party between a rock and a hard place. If they fail to match the anti-Obamacare passion that he flexed anew in a Senate speech Monday, they’ll land on the far right’s watch list. But if they match it and the government shuts down, there’s a good chance that the Republican Party takes the blame and a hit it can ill afford.

Which seems to match how he regards himself.

“He has come to the reluctant but unavoidable conclusion that he is simply more intelligent, more principled, more right — in both senses of the word — than pretty much everyone else in our nation’s capital,” writes Jason Zengerle in a profile of Cruz in the new issue of GQ. That’s not just a skeptical journalist’s take. That’s many exasperated Republicans’ assessment of Cruz, too.

And he’s lusting to do the same in the 2016 presidential race, especially if Rand Paul’s isolationism means that he can’t seize the role effectively. Cruz has bought into the notion that as a true conservative, he’d mimic Ronald Reagan’s success and avoid Bob Dole’s and Mitt Romney’s failures. This rewrites history, ignoring that the Republican nomination doesn’t go to the firebrand and that two Bushes won three presidencies by lofting words like “kinder,”“gentler” and “compassionate,” adjectives no one would ever affix to Cruz.

Here’s more history he forgets: most of the politicians who’ve gone all the way had not just his ambition but also a geniality that’s alien to him and a degree of affection from peers that, by week’s end, he can say a permanent goodbye to. He’s grandstanding and bloviating his way to obsolescence.

To wit: on Monday evening, the Senate’s two highest-ranking Republicans, Mitch McConnell and John Cornyn, rejected Cruz’s particular strategy to defund Obamacare. And Cruz doesn’t come across so winningly in a recent profile in The Weekly Standard, which, like Fox, is supposed to be friendly turf.

Its author, Andrew Ferguson, describes a car ride in which he mulls hurling himself out the door, no matter how rocky his landing, rather than listen to Cruz for another second. The Senate can relate.

The Biggest Myth About Obamacare

The biggest part of President Barack Obama's health care overhaul is just days away from its debut, and the American public remains confused.

For many consumers, the most important question is personal: What do I have to do?

If you're one of the roughly 80 percent of Americans who already has health insurance through an employer or is enrolled in a government program like Medicare, the answer is: probably nothing.

On Oct. 1, new health insurance websites will debut in each state. Some will be run by the state, and others will be run by the federal government. These sites, called health insurance exchanges or marketplaces, are designed to serve those without insurance and those who buy insurance on their own.

Seven million people will purchase private health insurance on the exchanges for 2014, the Congressional Budget Office projects. An additional 9 million will use the exchanges to enroll in Medicaid or the Children's Health Insurance Program, two joint federal-state health programs for low-income people. The number of uninsured will drop by 14 million next year, the budget agency projects.

For nearly everyone else -- the 170.9 million people covered by employers and the 101.5 million enrolled in government health programs -- the ballyhooed launch of the Obamacare exchanges will mean little, according to health care, consumer and business experts.

"If you have employer coverage now, do not worry," said Lynn Quincy, a senior policy analyst at Consumers Union in Washington who specializes in health care issues. "If you're on Medicare now, please don't worry," she said.

Still, a lot of people are worried over the introduction of a new way to buy health insurance and the health care law's "individual mandate" that nearly every legal U.S. resident obtain health coverage or face a tax penalty.

People who don't get health insurance will have to pay $95 dollars or 1 percent of their annual income -- whichever is higher. That amount will rise each year until it hits $695 or 2.5 percent by 2016. The mandate has numerous exemptions, including for financial hardship. Most company health plans already meet the health care reform law's standards for benefits and affordability, as do government health programs like Medicare, Medicaid and military benefits.

"For the vast majority of the population, the individual mandate will be a non-event," said Larry Levitt, the co-executive director of the Program for the Study of Health Reform and Private Insurance at the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation in Menlo Park, Calif.

The open enrollment period for 2014 health plans bought on the exchanges begins Oct. 1 and runs through the end of March. People will use the exchanges in their home states to compare the price and benefits of various insurance plans. The exchanges also are the only way to get the financial assistance available to those who earn less than four times the federal poverty level, which amounts to $45,960 for a single person this year.

Those shopping on the marketplaces will see changes. People who currently buy their own insurance will find that some cheap, skimpy plans sold to individuals today won't be available, and some younger, healthier people may see higher sticker prices -- especially if they don't qualify for tax credit subsidies. Others will gain access to coverage they didn't have and get help paying for it.

CONtinued:
