While some of McCarthy's amendments were not immediately germane to the homeland security bill - such as closing the gun-show loophole that allows purchasers to avoid background checks and reinstating the assault-weapons ban - their outright rejection is illustrative of how inhospitable the climate is in Congress for any type of gun control legislation, political analysts and lawmakers of both parties said.

see this is exactly why we need to pressure our representatives and senators to get pro-gun bills on the floor now. if the democrats are skittish about it and are not in power we need to act. In fact I've been thinking now is a good time to ask Senator hutchison to move HR1703 to the senate instead of congress. it's her last year, she has nothing to lose.

Consider the trouncing that Kerry and Dems took in the last election only Dems in absolutely safe districts can even think about such laws AT THE MOMENT.

Thank God the adults are in charge now. Just imagine what mischief the Demorcates could do if they were the majority party...or back in the White House!

She is too stupid to realize if her husband and son had been able to carry, they, or someone else on the train, may have been able to stop the shootings.
