GOPGuns (2)

Which is more important: dead children or the callous greed of Wayne LaPierre and the gun industry?  The Republican Party of filibastards and a handful of despicable DINOs believe that it’s the latter, and they proved it with their votes yesterday, shooting down every measure on responsible gun control presented yesterday.  I took the names.

The Following voted against the measure to outlaw oversized clips.

Rachel Maddow discussed these cowards with Patricia Maich, the hero who grabbed the clip from Loughner’s hand in Tucson, saving many lives.

Kudos to Patricia Maich, for stopping the Tucson shooter and for calling shame upon people even less moral than the man she stopped, Jared Lee Loughner. More innocents shall me massacred, and when they are, their blood will forever stain these Senate cowards.

Next, here is Rachel’s and Chris Murthy’s (D-DT) discussion of Obama’s response.

  1. Actually five Democrats voted AGAINST background checks (but Reid did so only to preserve his ability to call up the vote again at a later date):

    Besides Reid, four Democrats voted against it, including Sens. Max Baucus of Montana, Mark Begich of Alaska, Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Mark Pryor of Arkansas.

    • I can't help but think that part of this boondoggle is because Harry Reid failed to  amend the filibuster when he had the opportunity.  How many times does he have to be shown that the word and honour of a Republican/Teabagger means absolutely nothing?  Republican/Teabaggers are without honour.

  2. Oh TomCat that is a roll-call of shame – there are Democrats in with the Repuglicons voting against gun control!  I am utterly and completely certain that NONE of those who voted against the bill would have had the courage of Patricia Maisch and gone towards the gunman let alone wrestled the new clip out of his hands, thus stopping the carnage!  Shame, SHAME, SHAME!!!! on those who obstructed this legislation!

     

  3. "Shame" is not strong enough a word to describe their inaction.

  4. Patricia Maich: "…The majority of Americans feel that sensible gun laws are important, and background checks are their #1 result also.   Our senators need to look for, work for an A+ rating from the constituents and stop pandering to get an A+ rating from the NRA, the gun lobby, and the gun manufacturers and their money." 

    These senators have pulled a Daniel Webster, selling their souls to the NRA.  They are soulless beings now who do not deserve the privledge of serving their constituents . . . something that they have not done since they were elected.

    As the campaigning for 2014 midterms starts up, I think it is important to highlight the voting record of each of these misanthropes.  Can they be anything other than misanthropes when they so openly vote against common sense gun laws designed to protect people?

    Is it me, or did Rachel Maddow look tired, almost beaten?
