    9/06 John Dingell, Congressional Chameleon - Gun Owners of America

    ^Dave, I can't find it anywhere^^

    here where it states he voted FOR it.
    It does show where he voted against it.
    I will highlight it.
    As much as I like to hate him, for a member of the ----cratic party, his voting record is more in support of firearms than not.
    He did vote against CC which I was rather dismayed about.

    •John Dingell. Dingell: NICS Improvements will Benefit both Lawful Gun Owners and Law Enforcement. 19 December 2007. "This legislation will also benefit lawful gun purchasers, many of whom face unnecessary delays when waiting for their background check to be completed. For the first time since the creation of NICS, it will live up to its name and be both national and instant. It also benefits those who have been wrongfully included in the NICS database by providing a mechanism for petitioning the government for removal from the system. This is an important improvement which will strengthen the Second Amendment rights of all Americans." (votesmart.org)
    •John Dingell. Protecting Gun Owners in Bankruptcy Act of 2010. 28 July 2010. "In these challenging economic times, I have heard from families in Michigan's 15th Congressional District concerned they will lose their ability to protect themselves and their families should they enter into bankruptcy. As the Supreme Court recently ruled in Heller vs. the District of Columbia and confirmed in McDonald vs. Chicago, the Second Amendment affords individuals across the nation the right to keep and bear arms for the purpose of self defense. Hardworking Americans who have lost their jobs due to the economic downturn should not fear that they will be stripped of those rights because they are trying to turn their lives around through bankruptcy proceedings." (votesmart.org)
    •John Dingell. Full-Year Continuing Appropriations Act, 2011. 15 February 2011. "Funding for NICS is not only an important tool to keep firearms out of the hands of criminals and those mentally unfit to possess them, but also to ensure individuals' Second Amendment rights are protected, as States are required to remove obsolete or erroneous records from the database. This commonsense amendment is supported by the National Rifle Association, an organization whose top priority is protecting the Second Amendment rights of Americans. I urge my colleagues to join me in supporting it." (votesmart.org)
    •John Dingell. Issue Position: Judiciary. 25 January 2012. "Congressman Dingell is a strong supporter of the Second Amendment. He is a longtime member of the Congressional Sportsmen's Caucus and a lifetime member and prior board member of the National Rifle Association (NRA). Congressman Dingell has long believed in an individual's right to own a firearm for lawful purposes, a right the Supreme Court ruled in 2008 is guaranteed by the Constitution. The Congressman also has a record of working for common-sense regulations that enjoy the support of gun rights groups and gun control groups in order to prevent gun violence." (votesmart.org)
    •John Dingell. NICS Improvement Amendments Act of 2007. 13 June 2007. "Improving the National Instant Check System is a matter of important national business, and I would urge my colleagues to take a look at the rather curious alliance which brings this matter forward. Not only is the NRA, but the gun control folks are in support of it. Members on both sides of the aisle, both here and in the Senate, are strongly supporting it." (votesmart.org)

    THE CRIME BILL: OVERVIEW; HOUSE APPROVES CRIME BILL AFTER DAYS OF BARGAINING, GIVING VICTORY TO CLINTON - New York Times

    Many members said that they knew the bill that passed was not perfect but that it was better than the bill they blocked on Aug. 11, a vote that was a stunning setback for the President....

    ...Representative John D. Dingell, Democrat of Michigan, a member of the National Rifle Association for 20 years, said he found the ban on assault weapons "obnoxious, offensive and contrary to the rights of all Americans" under the Second Amendment.

    "This is, however, on balance, and narrowly so, a smart and a tough bill," said Mr. Dingell, who added that he was quitting the association.


    Dingell Quits NRA Board, Votes for Crime Bill - Los Angeles Times

    WASHINGTON — Rep. John D. Dingell (D-Mich.) quit the board of the National Rifle Assn. on Sunday as he prepared to vote for the crime bill, which bans 19 types of assault weapons.

    Dingell said in a letter to NRA President Tom Washington: "I find the conflict between my responsibilities as a member of Congress and my duties as a board member of the National Rifle Assn. irreconcilable."

    In a House speech, Dingell said he strongly opposed the crime bill's assault weapon ban as an infringement of gun owners' rights. But he said he was nevertheless supporting the $30-billion bill.

    The NRA strongly opposed the bill, and supporters of the measure said it had mounted an eleventh-hour campaign to try to kill it.

    Assault weapons ban is not the big banana they want. They will gladly trade that for the Universal Background check. If any of this stuff gets passed the fat lady has sung. They wont wait years to drop the hammer for fear of the house cleaning in the next elections and repeal of this stuff. But once its done nobody in the Feds will undo it you can bet your boots on that.

    It's the Democrats task force, not the house majority party's task force. What would you expect from the gun grabber party?
    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.

    ^^^^With all that out in the open^^^^^^^^^^^

    I would agree, that he sucks, and needs to be booted.
    Judging from my previous post listing his past voting record, one would have to agree he WAS, way more FOR guns than AGAINST them, but as all snakes are prone to do, he has turned.

    When are you going to start realizing that a politician DOES NOT HAVE TO BE SO FAR TO THE RIGHT that they have to drive in circles in order to PROTECT OUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS.... the problem with America is the fact that EVERYONE is so POLARIZED that refuse to MEET IN THE MIDDLE in order to MOVE AMERICA FORWARD.

    Michigan has more independent voters than they do republican/democrat combined
