Ahem!
The bipartisan Manchin-Toomey amendment, a background check expansion devised by Sens. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., Pat Toomey, R-Pa., and a handful of other lawmakers, earned only 54 votes, falling six votes short of the 60-vote threshold. Vice President Joe Biden, who led the Obama administration's months-long lobbying effort on behalf of stronger gun laws, presided over the vote.

You were saying, idiot child?
With the 60 vote threshold, and only in Washington can a 54 YES vote lose to a 46 NO vote.
You really don't understand how things work, do you.
You need 51 votes to pass a bill. You have to have 60 to stop a filibuster. Reid could have brought this up anytime in the last two months for a vote, but needed the time for the propaganda and Obama's pity party to pressure those with week knees. It would not have mattered, the vote was unconstitutional.

Idiot child, the bill lost. It did not get a majority of the votes. If it had it would go to the House, and be voted on there. It lost. It is dead. It will never become law. The vote was 54 to 46, forty six being the Yes votes, 54 being the NO votes. You do know 54 is greater then 46, right?
Who are you babbling to?

Thanks for announcing your support for more dead Americans, though, including our schoolkids. Nice to know where you stand.

The Democrats will never get 60 votes for gun control, never. Now maybe the half wit President will try to use Executive orders to control the people, and I so hope he does, because that is an impeachable offense when you try to violate the Bill of Rights. Only a Constitutional amendment can save his gun control, and he can't get that either. This is truly a great week in U S History. We should have a party, and just invite our friends that agree on the 2nd Amendment.
Have a party for dead schoolkids, sure, it's a great week to be a gunner and suppporter of mass murder. Hey, take your guns and shoot each other, while you're at it.

Have you finally reaized you were stupidly WRONG about the vote count, and that the filibuster was what kept this from passing?

Because you really made a fool of yourself back there a few posts ago...LOL

Excellent! One more LIE-beral out of the fight! Hopefully this will cause a domino effect.
Hopefully one of your fellow gunners will shoot you dead, or you'll realize what a wasted, empty shell of a person you and shoot YOURSELF.

It would significantly increase the national IQ, believe me...:)

Here is their problem. They can write a gun control bill. They can twist the words, and re write it. They can drag the pictures of dead children around, and exploit their parents, and they still cannot get the 60 votes they need to challenge the Constitution, or the bill of Rights. They lied about how much support they had, because they lie about everything.
Here's what I think should happen:

We should repeal the 2nd Amendment, since it's an outdated, useless POS which prevents real reform of gun laws.

THEN we should push through tough gun laws along the lines of those passed by Australians in the late '90s, and which cut gun killings and eliminated public massacres.

You are an ignorant, violent savage and so are all your kind.

Yes I was wrong about the vote count, but I was right about the President never getting gun control. We already have background checks, and they have not stopped any of the crazies from getting guns. We need background checks on crazy people, and we need to keep them locked away until they are reaponsible citizens.Likely forever.

No need to bother, it's over. The scumbags of the Senate (not all Republicans, either) aren't going to pass ANYTHING. They believe the lies, accept the threats from lobbyists, or the rewards as the case may be, and they're not going to "reform" ANYTHING.
As I said on another thread...I don't care anymore. Just shoot each other...or yourselves. Who cares? Let's all have guns and shoot whenever we feel like it.
But from now on, pigs, TAKE RESPONSIBILITY for your actions. You want guns everywhere? Fine. Accept Mexican drug gangs, ACCEPT armed gangs in America, ACCEPT gun suicides even if it's your family, ACCEPT school shootings. Quit complaining, you ASKED for it.
Who cares? This country's deranged, and so are its so-called "leaders." ALL of them.
Screw it.
So "professor", teach us please. Show the link between guns per capita and violence. Not just mindless blather, actual data, numbers.

You base your belief on the premise that more guns = more crime. Prove it.

No gun control, no internet tax, no illegal alien amnesty. And the Benghazi hearings right around the corner. It is true. Every President has a bad second term. Of course President Obama had a bad first term as well.
