The following is a list of Senators who are up for reelection in 2014. Originally, this list was written prior to the gun votes of April 16, 2013.  I have updated the list with the results of those votes; but I have left the original pre-vote assessment colors in place so you can get an idea of how firmly this Senator was supporting us before the vote.  In counting "pro-RKBA" votes, there are two votes that may be controversial to some.  The first is the cloture vote on the motion to proceed.  Many Republicans voted "YES" on this because they wanted to force Democrats to go on record so it could be used against them in 2014.  This doesn't necessarily reflect an anti-Second Amendment vote; but since many here resented playing politics with their Second Amendment rights, I have counted a NO vote here as "pro-RKBA".  The second vote in the Grassley-Cruz alternative to Toomey-Manchin.  This amendment provided grants to improve records submitted to NICS; but did not expand background checks.  It also included additional FOPA protections and pro-gun legislation - I have listed a YES vote as "pro-RKBA".

While it would be nice to get rid of Durbin, you are probably correct that he is not in a weak position.  Somebody like Franken though... He is already getting hammered from the left for not being more extreme. He barely squeaked out his last election and may be facing a challenger at the primary level as well.  If he votes for more gun control, he is exactly the type of politician we can make an example of.

Franken came out for AWB, magazine bans, etc. but did a low-key press release of support just to liberal outlets.  He knows he is weak.

I'll use my first post here to say this: Begich (Alaska) is starting to wobble towards the abyss. I think the "machine" is starting to lean on him. He knows it will be political suicide if he toes the Dem's line, but he doesn't have the spine to stand up to them. At this point he doesn't know whether to shit or go blind.

Time to turn up the heat on him.

Harkin is tough but he's getting old.  Watch some of his recent appearances.  He's not as sharp as he used to be.  Problem is there no obvious Republican to run against him.

Expect him to give the typical "I'm a hunter & sportsman, so I support the 2A - but no one needs 30 boolits to hunt deer with, etc." Never trust a "Pro-gun" D in this day & age. Mark has been a fucking rubber stamp for his party on almost every issue...

Sessions is my senator, and he's been pretty solid on 2nd amendment issues.  Unfortunately, though, he's been pretty solid following the establishment GOP party line, too.  I'd like to see him go, and it's unlikely his successor would be anti-gun.

Amendment - Gun carry on Amtrak

In April of 2009, the Senate voted on an amendment to ensure that law abiding Amtrak passengers are allowed to securely transport firearms in their checked baggage. Thad Cochran voted in favor of the amendment to allow citizens to transport firearms on Amtrak.



Amendment - US aid and gun registration

In September 2007, the US Senate voted on an amendment submitted by Senator Vitter of Louisiana. The amendment sought to prohibit the use of funds by international organizations, agencies, and entities that require the registration of, or taxes guns owned by citizens of the United States. The amendment got the support of almost all Republicans and about 2/3 of the Democrats to pass in a 81-10 vote. Thad Cochran voted in favor of the amendment to prevent funds from being used by organizations that would require registration of firearms.



The Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act

In 2005, the US Senate voted on S 397 - The Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act. The act sought to protect gun manufacturers, retailers, and suppliers from being sued for crimes or accidents involving the weapons they sold or manufactured. The legislation came to a vote in July of 2005 and passed the Senate with a vote of 65-31. Thad Cochran voted in favor of the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act.


Amendment - Assoult Weapons Ban

In an amendment to the lawful commerce act, the Senate voted on a 10 year extension to the assault weapons ban. The amendment was agreed to in a 52-47 vote. Thad Cochran voted against the 10 year extension of the assault weapons ban.


Amendment - Background Checks

In an amendment to the lawful commerce act, the Senate voted to require criminal background checks on all firearms transactions occurring at events that provide a venue for the sale, offer for sale, transfer, or exchange of firearms, and for other purposes. The amendment was agreed to 53-46 with most Democrats supporting the amemdment and most Republicans oppossed to it. Thad Cochran voted against the amendment to require background checks at all events.




Brady Handgun Violence Protection Act

The Brady Handgun Violence Protection Act was passed in response to an attack on President Reagan in which Secretary Brady was injured. The 1993 law required gun purchasers to pass a background check to ensure that they were not a felon or did not fall into a number of other prohibitive classes. The measure passed the senate 63-36. Thad Cochran voted against the Brady Handgun Violence Protection Act.

My canned letter received from Mark Begich;

January 17, 2013  

Dear Mr. AK-Bandit:

Thank you for contacting me about the tragic shooting in Newtown, Connecticut.

I was shocked by this horrifying event, and my heart goes out to the victims, families and the Sandy Hook community as they face this tragedy.  This was a terrible, senseless crime against some of the most vulnerable.  

In the aftermath of this awful crime, we must be vigilant about addressing future threats to public safety.  There is no simple solution, but I do not believe more restrictive gun laws will prevent criminals from committing acts of violence.  I have always been and continue to be a strong defender of Second Amendment rights for law-abiding citizens.

I believe this tragedy, and the shooting earlier this year in Aurora, Colorado, illustrate a pressing need to improve mental health services in this country.  The Sandy Hook shooter was in early adulthood, a time when mental illnesses frequently develop.  I have introduced a bill, S. 3325, the Mental Health First Aid Higher Education Act of 2012, to improve mental health services on college campuses.  This legislation would establish a program to provide training to faculty members, dormitory resident advisors, and other members of the college community to recognize the signs of mental illness and safely address crisis situations.  

We must do more to keep our communities and families safe, and legislation like this is an important step in the right direction.  I will continue working with my colleagues in the Senate to promote mental health services and prevent violence.  

Thank you again for contacting me about this tragedy.  Please continue to be in touch with your thoughts and concerns.  


Sincerely,
Mark Begich
U.S. Senator

Sen. Tom Harkin has announced he is retiring (http://pjmedia.com/tatler/2013/02/02/harry-reid-and-the-crumbling-democratic-caucus/).  He was solidly anti-gun so good chance to replace him with someone better in 2014.

I thought Cochran was retiring?

Delete Kerry from the list.

His Three Purple Hearts (from getting Swift Boated) just got him the post of United States Secretary of State.

The Question NOW before us is just what kind of Loser is going to replace him.  Good Luck over there.

I received this from Lamar Alexander:








Dear rightist
,




Thanks very much and letting me know what’s on
your mind regarding the right to bear arms.




I’m a strong supporter of Second Amendment
rights. Congress should not pass laws that take away these rights from law
abiding citizens and leave criminals to terrorize the streets. Good citizens
don’t abuse guns – criminals do. I will continue to support
legislative efforts to protect the Second Amendment rights of law abiding
Americans, and oppose efforts to overturn the Second Amendment.




In two recent cases, the U.S. Supreme Court clearly
held that the Second Amendment protects the right of individual Americans to
keep and bear arms. In the 2008 case, D.C. v. Heller, the Supreme Court held
that D.C.’s restrictive gun laws violated the constitutional rights of
Americans. Two years later, in McDonald v. Chicago, the court struck down the
city of Chicago’s handgun ban and held that, like the federal government,
state and local governments must respect Second Amendment rights. I joined legal
briefs in both cases in defense of this constitutional right and was pleased
with the Supreme Court’s decisions.




I am grateful you took the time to let me know where
you stand. I’ll be sure to keep your comments in mind as Second Amendment
rights are discussed and debated in Washington and in Tennessee.




Sincerely,


Lamar
Unfortunately an article came out last week that Lamar votes with Obama more than any other Senator from the south



WTF!

I wouldn't trust Mary Landrieu on a 2nd Amendment issue as far as I could throw that little piglet hog.

She thinks of herself as the next Hitlery.  And so do I.

I hope a good conservative runs against her in 2014.

Your description of Michigan's Senator Levin is WAY too nice.

He is a gun grabbing POS libtard.

There has NEVER been an anti-gun statute he doesn't approve of.

He is FOR civilian disarmament.

I received a pretty strong pro-2A response from Texas - John Cornyn (R) last week. I deleted the letter already but it appears he is in the same boat as Cruz who I also received a kick-ass letter from

This guy is a douche bag's douche bag & he'll get re-elected because there are no republicans with a spine in Michigan to run against him.




+1.  Karl Lenin is a shit bag communist of the highest order.

Nothing short of a massive stroke will get this asshole out.

I keep hearing rumors but can't find a definitive statement saying he is retiring.

While he's not my senator, and after watching some of the recent hearings, I cannot take him serious from the years on SNL. He is always that guy, stuart smally dude.
