    Gun Control – Cloture Vote - Vote Agreed to (68-31, 1 Not Voting)

    The Senate also agreed to invoke cloture on the motion to proceed to comprehensive firearms–related legislation that has been in the works since the horrific shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut last December. Sixteen Republicans agreed to move forward with the bill, while two Democrats facing tough re-election battles next year – Mark Begich of Alaska and Mark Pryor of Arkansas – voted against ending debate. Though it is unclear what shape a final bill will take – or even whether any substantive measure can garner enough support to pass – supporters are hoping to include a strengthened background checks measure sponsored by Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania; language strengthening penalties for straw purchasers; and expanded funding for school safety. If a bill does make it out of the Senate, its fate would be even more uncertain in the Republican-controlled House. President Obama issued a statement in support of S. 649.

    Sen. Lindsey Graham voted YES
    Sen. Tim Scott voted NO


    Folks ask why I carry two guns...Well if I did not I'd be off balance and walk in circles!

    Please understand.... it is a foregone conclusion that the present government of the United States of America has an agenda to disarm "we the people" and the agenda is progressing as planned.

    Now.. what "we the people" are going to do about it is still unknown.

  5. Best shot we have is to find some one who is willing to run and replace the imposters in Congress. The ballot box is all we have left, kinda...

    'll wait and see what happens with Graham. Other fish to fry right now. There are ample reasons not to like him, but unfortunelty, in order to primary him out, you need someone to run against him.

    It would be nice if there were a third party type that could compete, but the Tea Party blew their load in a year's worth of angry ranting, and have faded. You might even get a D who is more freedom and liberty oriented, but that has problems of its own, among them the requirement to have the likes if Reid and Pelosi lead you around by the balls.

    I voted for Graham the first time he ran. Never since!
