WHILE YOUR DISTRACTED BY BOSTON: Senate plans vote today on expanding background checks for gun buyers!!
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate set a long-awaited vote for Wednesday on a bipartisan plan for expanding background checks to more firearms buyers, with supporters facing a steeply uphill path to victory.

By scheduling the roll call, Senate leaders ensured a showdown over the cornerstone of an effort by gun control supporters to tighten firearms laws following December's killings of 20 students and six aides at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn.

The Senate planned to vote on eight other amendments as well to a Democratic gun control bill that besides expanding background checks, would tighten laws against gun trafficking and boost school safety aid.

They included Democratic proposals to ban assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition clips, which are expected to lose; a Republican proposal requiring states to honor other states' permits allowing concealed weapons, which faces a close vote; and a broad GOP substitute for the overall gun measure.

How do you expand a background check? When I buy a new gun they call the FBI who looks to see if I have ever been arrested or charged with a crime...if I were a criminal, I'd fucking steal a gun.

The background checks included in the Bradey Bill went all the way to the Supreme Court where it was denied and deemed unconstitutional. 1997, I believe.

Call those crooks we have in office! It does help! I think sometimes they are just testing us to see what they can get away with.

Even if it doesn't help, it's all we can do right now to try and stop them. It doesn't cost anything.

Do it!

Feinstein's phones are all either off the hook because they're sick of people calling or there are so many calling her.

Boxer's lines were open. I left a message and told her that if it unconstitutional, I already know she'll vote for it, but I thought I'd put my 2 cents in anyway.

If I can take the time to call these 2 who I KNOW will vote for this, you guys can call yours.

But a criminal doesn't care about any of that, they will steal or buy one on the black market and skip the checks anyway...it makes no sense!

It's not good for a psycho to have a gun, pretty much anyone would agree. The background check bill is being pushed as a "Common sense" bill. And it would seem to the average person, not the average GLP'er though, that this is common sense.
But to us here we know, all they wanna do is try to make less guns available to the public, to keep guns out of our hands, and take our rights away a little at a time.

We have North Korea threatening to destroy us with nuclear weapons and we have Islamic terrorists blowing up buildings and people in major cities...

Yet the important thing for our government to do is to take away our ability to defend ourselves from these very real threats.

I dare say it, but the world is about to change for the worse because America is being destroyed from the inside out. Remember the Dark Ages that lasted for hundreds of years after Rome fell?

I hope the world is ready for the Chinese Socialist boot...

I have emailed both of my Senators and Rand Paul as well. I simply asked them to vote no on this legislation. I further explained that I don't believe prohibitive or controlling legislation has never stopped or corrected any problems in the past and I don't think this will solve crime or violence now. I also feel that this legislation is simply taking a Constitutional Right and turns it into a Government controlled "privilege".

That was all I said.

I don't believe this fear based type of legislation ever solves anything. It builds up the black market and makes law abiding citizens gut through red tape.

I tried to do my part...

Yes do this!

I am in NY so my Senators are Schumer and Gillibrand. I am also on the mailing of a Progressive group (they're good on privacy stuff, bad on this) and got their mailing urging me to call my Senators and support the Manchin-Toomey proposal. So I called them and very simply opposed it instead.

Their phones were not flooded, I got thru to both. The secretaries did not seem overwhelmed with calls. There is little public support for this bad legislation, so your call opposing it could make a difference!
