    While the vote is great...... Take note that 46 senators voted in favor....... That is not good news at all..........

    That's great, but that vote should have been 100-0.

    Every seated Senator including Feinstein took an oath to defend and protect the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic -- the same oath every member of the military takes. This amendment should have included a rider that charges treason to everyone that voted against the amendment.

    Good except for the fact that in order for it to become law the House has to also pass the parent bill with the amendment... And the parent bill is a liberal budget that is the exact opposite of the budget the house passed last week.


    Not going to happen.

    I'm grateful that a majority got it right (for the right reason or just to keep their jobs). It's a good win today for the USA.

    Just dodged a bullet. Again!

    But don't fret, I'm sure they'll get another crack at it before Obama's second term is up.

    And then we'll have to wait and see at who gets a crack at the White House next. Hopefully it isn't Hillary.

    They took a "voice" vote. I wonder if they even wrote it down. Can't imagine they'd want it published, the 46.

    Well, that's not exactly fair. The Congressional Record has summaries, of course. I'm sure they document it. Only real way to keep things straight. But on nitzy little amendments here and there, I've never found a good way to find out who did what, such as the 500+ tweaks to a budget before it gets voted on and passed. Publicizing it's something else entirely.

    I think this (passing) is what Obama was Hoping for; a ban on arms without making Democrats go on the record against guns in some of the "red" states they are barely hanging on to.

    Now that the UN isn't going to do his dirty work, I expect to see a more aggressive push by our beloved White House.

    53 to 46... majority on the correct side. There are always both sides to every issue. Nothing will be unanimus when it comes to the battle for the 2nd am. Take the win, quit whining and lets get ready for our next obsticle.
