I support additional background checks, I didn't support or appreciate Obama parading victims around to make his case.

The President is a lame duck. He isn't going to get support from Republicans or conservative Democrats for gun control, or immigration reform. There is no extra money so he cannot buy support like he did his Healthcare debacle.

b. h. obama is a whining self-serving marxist man-child who has no clue how angry America is at him. He has cost millions their futures. Eight years will be wasted catering to a deranged marxist bag of sht. What a waste.

I do not see it being a Patriot being responsible for the Boston Massacre II as the celebration circles around the bad guys being redcoats. Not to bet the farm on who-done-it I'll leave it at that.

Utter chaos in Waco Texas following an explosion at a fertilizer plant. Witness from 4 miles away said it shook her and her home by opening cabinet doors, etc.

The Democrats asked for the situation they find themselves in today. They had to know gun control was the last straw. Americans will not be disarmed. People like Bloomberg, Feinstein, Obama, and Biden think we will just roll over, and play dead. The NRA has signed over 2 million new members since the talk about gun control began. That will buy a lot of Senators, Democrat, and Republicans. 5 Democrats joined the Republicans in killing the gun control bill. OMG, Obama is saying NRA lied. The biggest liar ever thinks the NRA is bigger liars then he is, and he is a famous liar, starting with his own background check. So funny

Too many buy into Background Checks before reading the bill...
Your wife, son, daughter would have to pass a criminal background check in order for you to lone your gun to one of them. And for one of them to give the gun back to you--you would have to pass a criminal background check. Failure to comply is a 3rd degree felony. Just a sample of what's in the beast.

One of the best things to happen to the lying POTUS!

Those that would give up any rights or portion there of, do not deserve to be free!

Don't tread on me!

The American people are the ones who lost today because the GOP is in the pocket of the NRA and the gun lobby, but 2014 will show who had the biggest lost today… and we will get a whole lot more than background checks when the Democratic Party takes control of the entire Congress.

get off the pot already. you sound so stupid, it's pitiful.

with double digit unemployment. a government who is spending money that we don't have. outsourcing our jobs. and a whole host of other things, I pretty much doubt you democrats are going to take control of congress.

the only way that would happen is if you commit fraud. after acorn, I wouldn't put it pass you.

Those of us (especially the President) who are concerned about our gun culture and gun violence can rest assured that we tried to make positive steps forward before the next massacre, the next slaughter and the next tragedy to our citizens.

The world will continue to laugh, the gun huggers will continue to hug, the gun violence will continue to shock us each and every time and we will continue to wonder "wtf".

Proud to have taken a stand - and will continue to do so ....

You are right, the straw is laughable but worth trying to fix.

GALLUP: Only 4% of Americans Think Gun Control Important Problem... Nuff Said. Even with the MSM running propaganda non stop, this time the low information voters stayed home under their beds.

It is not a gun culture, it is a constitutional right.
