Talk about your unforced errors. This entire gun control fiasco by the Dems has been a real hoot. They have completely depleted any political capital, good will, head start or grace period with Main Street USA after the 2012 elections. They went on a Fool’s Folly, and came up busted up.
A proposed ban on sales of assault weapons would be defeated in the U.S. Senate today unless some members changed their current views, based on a Bloomberg review of recent lawmaker statements and interviews.
At least six of the chamber’s 55 Democrats have recently expressed skepticism or outright opposition to a ban, the review found. That means Democrats don’t have a simple 51-vote majority to pass the measure, let alone the 60 votes needed to break a Republican filibuster to bring it to a floor vote.
Not everyone will have to abide by Senator Dianne Feinstein’s gun control bill. If the proposed legislation becomes law, government officials and others will be exempt.
Hunters are exempt as well. But the point is arming the government and disarming the people is just too similar to all the really bad moves ever made in human history. All I see is an enormous lightning rod, stuck into a bull’s eye, sitting on the butt of the DNC
Look, guns are machines. Just like cars they can be deadly machines. It is not the machine, nor all the other law abiding users of the machines that need to be blamed for the sick minds that use them to kill others. As is well known, more people are killed by knives than guns, and the human carnage by cars is enormous. So it is no surprise these gun control laws never save lives – ever.
A murderer who wants to kill will find a way.
BTW, click the picture above and read through the proverbs on fools. I especially liked this one [page 6]:
A fool is deaf to Information & Impulsive
Spouting off before listening to the facts is both shameful and foolish
Wise people think before they act; fools don’t – and even brag about their foolishness
