I agree Ksgunner, but it's hard to keep up with all of their bills, plans, and what they have done.

Our junior Senator from North Carolina is not on the list but I will be voting to replace her in 2014 for other reasons.

Don't be too quick and happy that your Democratic Senator isn't listed. There is a lot of political wrangling that goes on with these things. Many are "excused" by their fellow Dems if they are from states that might dump them if they supported this bill.

For example, in WV, Rockefeller was a no brainer to support this because he isn't running again! However, Joe Manchin (D) is absent from the list...he'll be running again in a few years. He can't afford to have his name on this bill.

The representatives from states that are firmly in the Liberal tank, like MD, CA. IL etc. have nothing to lose by voting for the bill because their voters will vote for them no matter what. In fact, they are voting the way their people want them to vote.

So, just because your rep.'s name isn't on the list doesn't mean he wouldn't have voted for it, if it was politically expedient for him to do so.

Good points, there is a website somewhere that shows how each legislator voted on bills but I have been unable to find it. Even if they are not a sponsor it is good to know how they voted.

The bill must not have met the approval of Florida's Senator Nelson, he wasn't listed as a co-sponsoner. IMO, he would have been a co sponsor if it had called for a total ban on all weapons. He is just another self righteous, all knowing, self centered elected parasite attempting to force his agenda on the people of Florida.

Rockefeller was a co-sponsor but he is retiring, so I can't hold him accountable.
Levin of MI is retiring also. But I doubt there will be a strong GOP candidate to replace him as the GOP in MI is not terribly organized or effective right now. The Governor isn't helping as he seem to be reading from his own special book and has managed to anger just about everybody. No political capital to spend there.

Thanks for reminding us to be vigilant.

Oh look...they are ALL Democrats (or demonrats)...shocking, I say, shocking! The party of ZERO accountability. It's all the usual suspects from the usual Democratic strongholds (IL, RI, CT, NJ, MD, NY, CA, WV).

Not understanding why a combination of tar and feathers is not being used regularly. What will give these people a hint?

And every one of his letters reminds us he grew up on a farm and is a hunter. As if the Second Amendment is about the right to hunt on a farm. BS -- his votes tell how he really feels about 2A.

I was surprised not to see "my" senators on the list. They surely would have voted for it though. I feel like I have to do something at times like these, but I know that any email or letter I send to them is useless. They are blind and deaf to me.
