Grassley will make enough noise that this won't pass the full Senate, and so will we. I will, once again, be writing my Senators.
I know everyone is tired of hearing this, but it's imperative that you contact your reps and tell them to reject UBC. If you've been holding off on contacting them before, NOW is the time.Grassley will make enough noise that this won't pass the full Senate, and so will we. I will, once again, be writing my Senators.
There are no republicans that cross the aisle on issues? Hmmm...THIS IS NOT A SLAM DUNK.It should never make it all the way through. However the anti gun people will not let up. It will be something else after this round of attacks on our rights. We are so lucky that the republicans have control of the house. All in all what we need to worry abt is a conservative justice retiring while under a socialist POTUS then our 2nd admin. rights will surely be at risk. In a lot of ways we are just like France is with their socialist views of those in power with England thrown in for the icing on the cake.....

The fight ain't over, not by a long shot. Hopefully we all get it, by this point:"This isn't going to be a perfect bill," said its sponsor, Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., acknowledging that it wouldn't end gun violence. "But it will sure reduce crimes."
Awaiting a committee vote Thursday is a proposal by Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., to ban assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines. That bill is expected to win panel approval but die in the full Senate when the chamber considers gun legislation, probably in April
