There are already background checks. So we need a Bill to have them?

Some States include people judged mentally ill, while others do not. The law as it stands already addressed mental health, but new laws restricted access to mental health records.

The myth is you can sell firearms over the internet or at gunshows without a background check. You cannot ship a firearm, except to a FFL holder who must conduct a background check to release the firearm. Regardless where the sell occurs, a FFL must by law, conduct the background check.

What is not covered is sales between private citizens, some States have requirements that vary to regulate these types of sales.

The gun control bill failed. It could not get the 60 voes necessary to pass. If America wanted gun control we would have it. Try to convince the rest of the Congress, and bring it up again. Bring it up a 1,000 times, and it will fail 1,000 times.

@Cat74, "The gun control bill failed" On one vote,but the times they are a'changin'!'Many of the senators who sided with the gun lobby against the vast majority of Americans who favor background checks — particularly Kelly Ayotte, Jeff Flake and Rob Portman — are taking enormous grief from their constituents.

This shows that one defeat on one vote is not a permanent setback when the tally in question reflects an old reality (that only hardcore gun owners care about the issue) and ignores a new reality (that supporters of gun sanity are finally mobilized, and angry). On guns, the times are changing.' Also, Cat74; Check this out: http://www.gallup.com/poll/162083/americans-w...

So bring the bill up again. And again. And again. We are waiting for the Democrats to bring it up again. In order to pass anything they have to water it down to nearly nothing

So when will the pitiful Democrats bring up that gun control bill? The Republicans won't budge. The Democrats coming up for re election in 2014, and 2016 won't vote for it. Poor President. He must be wearing that prayer rug out praying to allah for some help with this thing. The rest of us are praying to our Savior, Jesus Crhist. He answers all prayers. He also created our Constitution. He understands the 2nd amendment.

Come on Larry, you know that a majority of the people do not want any more of these restrictions that only infringe upon the rights of law abiding citizens. If you want a solution to violence lock up criminals and institutionalize the dangerous insane. Legislators that vote for further restrictions will surely not be re-elected.

God bless the Constitution and the 2nd Amendment.

Your postings would be more credible is you could somehow learn to string an entire sentence together with a complete thought.

You won't encounter a more moving or determined encouragement of peace and humanity than Francine and David Wheeler offer on this week's Bill Moyers show. It's now fully accessible online. Please watch and -- perhaps more importantly -- share "The Sandy Hook Promise." http://vimeo.com/65359687

I don't think God gets into politics. If he did, the right would be doomed forever.

You do remember the part where it says "we are endowed by our creator!" Who do you think their creator was?? It wasn't Allah. He didn't read the bible for another 600 years. Not only did He Create the Constitution, He protects it to this very day. Why do you think the likes of Obama cannot get anything done?

One truism applies. You can't win an argument with an idiot.

If, as you say, God answers all prayers, tomorrow you'll be sitting in a vat of Jello in Macy's window.
