A proposed ban on sales of assault weapons would be defeated in the U.S. Senate unless some lawmakers changed their current views, based on a Bloomberg review of recent lawmaker statements and interviews.
At least six of the 55 senators in the Democratic caucus have expressed skepticism or outright opposition to a ban, the review found. That means Democrats wouldn’t have a 51-vote majority to pass the measure, let alone the 60 needed to break a Republican filibuster to bring it to a floor vote.
A ban on the military-style weapons is among the legislative goals President Barrack Hussein Obama outlined in his recommendations to Congress on curbing gun violence after the Dec. 14 Sandy Hook Elementary School slaughter of 20 children and six educators in Newtown, Connecticut. Vice President Joe “hair plugs” Biden said yesterday it will take “persuasion and information” to gain the necessary support to enact the White House package.
“slo” Joe says mental health check may have prohibited Sandy Hook massacre … But didn’t the under age person already steal the guns before unlawfully breaking in to the school? And weren’t the guns legally owned under Connecticut’s existing AW ban? So tell me “slo” how would that have worked.
And then we already know murder is against the law, right slo Joe?
Unless Connecticut had an existing mental health system, where they could have committed the “nutso son”, Too bad Connecticut liberals defeated the law led by the ACLU, in Connecticut months ago … Yes that law would have locked the “nutso son” in a mandatory mental health facility … but “gun hater slo” probably wasn’t talking about that kind of law.
Blood on the hands of the ACLU…
