    Unfortunately, I have no faith in our election process.
    I don't believe obummer was actual reelected.

    Contrary to some paranoid delusions and some people spoiling for a verbal rebellion (because it will go no further), there will be no weapons ban. There are not enough votes in the Senate, period, the end. Yes, there are more democrats, but many of these democrats come from the South and Midwest, where voting for a gun ban would be political suicide. Here in Louisiana, Landrieu is up for re-election. There is no way she will vote for a ban, plain and simple. Or take a look at Harry Reid, the super liberal Senate majority leader with the perfect NRA rating. He doesn't even want the legislation to make it to the floor.

    The most that is going to happen is enhanced background checks and I for one am all for them. I think as a logical man that it is ridiculous to go to a gun show and have an FFL holder have two tables side by side. One table is for sales with a background check and the other has a big sign that says "Private Collection--No background check." I for one don't think that every thug under the sun needs an AK or SKS.

    Those of you who don't agree won't do anything but remain the internet rebels that you are.

    There are 100,000 people posting how much they wanted to "be there" for Christopher Dorner, yet I didn't see one person sticking their ass in front of the rifles. Some of you need to get a life. Really.

    What sucks is I could vote 1000 times and this commie loving demo left wing state will still vote democratic like it has for the last 8 elections. :steamed:

    Damn straight! When they say they want 100% background checks, you can rest assured the next step is 100% registration. Later confiscation of one group with the other groups saying ok, until the only ones with guns are the brown shirts (so to speak).

    Every totalitarian state has something in common, first remove the guns from the people.

    I wish most lawmakers felt this way, but.. unfortunately, the economy is the last thing on their mind.

    California has an "enhanced" background check, with DROS, PPT and other assorted crap attached. It applies to sales and transfers and set up cost California taxpayers millions to implement the program.

    Be wary of any federal imposed background check legislation....

    In short, be careful what you wish for.

    Some of you guys really need to read the constitution.

    1. Senators are elected for 6 year terms.

    2. The only 2 ways to remove a senator from office are to vote them out in a regular election. Or for 2/3's of the Senate to vote to kick them out.

    It might pass the Senate but it will be DOA when it reaches the House.

    Agreed, our side needs to be vigilant.

    More than that. Our side needs to be assertive.

    I'm thinking we should be trying to overturn some of the existing anti-second amendment laws.
