“Sickmaking” or “gag-inducing” as commenters on Twitter have noted, Dingy’s speech is especially repulsive at the part where he exploits “the people from Connecticut who lived through this tragedy” as if the proposals in this bill would have done anything to have prevented it.
They must be so proud.
Hey you 16 Republicans – “the word is out” – If a lying, conniving, socialist, dirtbag like Dingy Harry is praising you – you done something wrong.
Bob Owens asks: is a trap being set?
…The list of ways to turn this empty shell of a bill into the “Gun Freedom Act of 2013″ is only limited by the minds of the Senate’s Bill authors. Let’s hope they have the good sense to use this bill to force the Democrats to show their constituents what they really think about liberty. If they can use the amendment process in such a way as to expand freedom instead of contract it, that is even better.
But I really think it is as Roll Call surmised: “With polls showing that as many as 90 percent of Americans want to see enhanced background checks for firearms, many GOP senators were wary of filibustering the motion to proceed to the bill even if they eventually vote against it.”
In DC, you follow the money or you follow the polls (even bogus ones.) In this case, probably both apply.
