Once again to stay on the subject as I predicted gun control failed. I don't know who created this false 90% figure but they were'nt even close. Probably more loke 45% for more gun laws and 55% against. Just like alcohol,it's not the bottle nor the gun but the person holding it thats the problem.

Gun Control is a democrat strongpoint. They are always going after the guns whenever they get a little momentum.
Glad to see the democrats crash and burn on this one.
Obama is a wimp.

I really don't think President Obama is " comin after" our guns. I live in one of the hunting capitals in the nation and I can assure you that assault weapons are not necessary to kill a deer or squirrel. I think that's what the Democrats want to ban are the unnecessary clips that hold hugh amounts of ammo and the assault weapons that are used in most mass murders. The only ones that need these things are military and law enforcement. While I'm writing I will also add that in my opinion that if illegal drugs were made legal the crime rate would go way down. Country's that legalized drugs have very low crime rates. Just sayin'

No only republicans will be singing, but looks like Hilary will continue on after Obama. You see for republicans to get back into office,it will take the majority of independents to make that happen.

Glad they lost on this one too, but I'm sure not going to turn into a republican over gun control or gay marriage which I hope they give up on too!

I disagree, they should cancel the Second Amendment and allow Gay marriage too.
Guns are hate and death, Gay marriage is love and life.
The world would be at peace if it wasn't for the actions of the USA. Just sayin'

I agree. But what Obama and the democrats want to ban is "assault weapons" and "high capacity magazines" Even though these scenarios never played a part in the recent massacres.
They are telling us they are building a fence to protect us by limiting guns rights but in reality they are putting us into cages.
