I'm watching the Today show and their breaking news is that there will be a formal announcement at 11:00 am ET today about an agreement being reached. The only details is that it won't cover transfers between family members (i.e., it won't be truly universal). I haven't been able to find any more details at this time. The statement was that this bi-partisan group has enough votes to "block a Republican filibuster."

If that is indeed true hopefully things will stop in the House.

We will have to (READ) the actual proposed law.
I am certain it will contain enough nebulous verbage to give the anti's wiggle room to interpret as they see fit.

I think I'll apply to law school. The courts will be over flowing for years!

If it turns out to be SB 480 it might not be so bad, but the way it was portrayed (NBC, so who knows) it seems like it will be worse.

Termination of debate (cloture) scheduled for Thu, 4/10/13

From the Congressional Record's Daily Digest for 4/9/2013 said:
Daily Digest (pD283) ... Safe Communities, Safe Schools Act — Cloture:

Senate began consideration of the motion to proceed to consideration of S. 649, to ensure that all individuals who should be prohibited from buying a firearm are listed in the national instant criminal background check system and require a background check for every firearm sale. Pages S2475–78, S2482–92

A motion was entered to close further debate on the motion to proceed to consideration of the bill, and, in accordance with the provisions of Rule XXII of the Standing Rules of the Senate, a vote on cloture will occur on Thursday, April 11, 2013. Page S2492


A unanimous-consent-time agreement was reached providing for further consideration of the motion to proceed to consideration of the bill at approximately 9:30 a.m., on Wednesday, April 10, 2013, and the next hour be equally divided and controlled between the two Leaders, or their designees, with Senators permitted to speak therein for up to 10 minutes each, with the first half controlled by the Republicans and the second half controlled by the Majority. Page S2509

9:30am Weds, 4/10/13, on C-SPAN -- This is when the discussion on the floor will occur, subject to apparently agreed-upon restrictions on debate, including proposed cloture (termination of further debate) on Thurs, 4/11.

The networks are going to portray anything as a victory, and maybe it is.

So the Senate will take a test vote on Thursday. lets say they can get it to pass. What is next. Doesn't the House have to pass it?




FYI: for the record I am against it! enough is enough! It is time to move on from the Gun control talk

If passed then it goes to the house for their consideration then back to the senate to iron out any differences.

Yea, but that happened with a democratic majority in the House. We have a Republican majority so it won't be that easy.

Surprised to find a decent, balanced story on CNN about why new gun laws probably won't be effective. This link was right under the link about the potential Senate deal. Not used to seeing things like this lately.

Another NRA A rated traitor to our side just killed the filibuster and opened the flood gates. Why am I not surprised? If a senator sits on the fence like that and flops over to the other side how in the world do they get A ratings from NRA???? I think ill go for a ride before i run my head through a wall:mad: I decided to do the NRA thing because a lot here said I should but never ever again. Shouldnt have this time.

It going to pass no matter what.

Its a done deal. Anything else is semantics.

Obama care passed.
I thought we had this stopped but now I think I gotta agree with you Hotguns. A few senators were ready to hit this head on but after being back stabbed by their own I cant say I blame em for not wanting to be thrown under the bus that will be allowed to roll over them no matter what they do.

Notice how they dangled little tidbits like "we will let you carry your gun across all state lines etc." to entice people to get on board. We all know this will never happen and will be conveniently lost and forgotten...

I am not going to get my pants in a bunch just yet. There are some conditions that have to be met. I don't think Rand and his buddies gives a crap what Coburn says.

I just read this on Yahoo news and it said "The new bill would expand checks to nearly every gun transaction except for some private sales and transfers among relatives." And Toomey said "he added some provisions to strengthen gun rights in the bill, including allowing a legal gun owner to take his or her concealed weapon over state lines while traveling, even if that state does not allow concealed carry."I do not believe the Anti-States would like the provision Toomey put in if the Yahoo news happens to be true.
