It honestly does not matter how many republican senators cave in. The Senate was going to vote for it anyways. We need the house republicans to hold strong.
On a more personal level, I hear and agree wholeheartedly with the "cold dead hands". It is easy to talk tough and throw cliches around. I just hope if the time comes that I can stand as strong as my words. I'm really not ready to be dead yet.
Boehner is already on thin ice as it is, and while I don't think he's the smartest guy out there he should have at least enough sense to know that if he so much as touches this with a ten foot pole, his political career will be done. While Obama may be arrogant enough to not understand what the last AWB did to the democratic party, the I highly doubt many republicans will want to jump on board that wagon, and this time I don't many gun makers jumping on the wagon either.
Feinstein introduces this bill every year and it goes nowhere. My guess is that this will blow over like everything else, you have do have to wonder about the timing of all of this. :) (There's my conspiracy theory side coming out.)
Brown is pandering to his base, he is likely to run for Kerry's seat.
I'd rather be lucky than good any day
There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.
Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.
Just thought I'd share me philosophy on it! With everything going on anyone that stands beside me and fellow pro 2nd amendment people I hold extremely high respect for which means pretty much anyone on this forum!
I wouldn't count 'em all on board yet.
They love their jobs and a bunch of them want to survive 2014 elections.

Don't ever think that the reason I'm peaceful is because I'm afraid to be violent!
just my opinion/observation: those on the political left seem to vary their reaction to hate speech depending on who is being hated more than pro-gun people do. if those being 'hated' were gays, a racial minority, or some other group with whom they sympathized, the left would attack the speaker with everything in their arsenal. but somehow similar attacks on pro-gun folks are tolerated, by their silence if nothing else.
i have never felt that bigotry of any kind has been tolerated by the majority of posters on this site.
