Pinky Reid showing his true colors again? Stealthily supporting anti-gun zealot Andrew F. Traver?

I've been out of town for the SAR show, so when I got back I wanted to catch up on what's going on with congress.
Not too happy with what I've found!

It seems Pinky has NOT made any real effort to ensure the Traver nomination is voted on before congress adjourns.

This is typical of him.

He will let Traver become a recess appointment, then continue to claim that he "really does" support our RKBA.
If anyone complains he will deny all responsibility, probably blaming the republicans for time running out.

Readers here might remember that one of the claims for allowing Dingy to remain in office was that he is SENATE MAJORITY LEADER, and a (claimed) supporter of our RKBA.
IF he TRULY wanted Traver's nomination to be scheduled and voted on it would be.

I checked with Pinky's office, they could not give me a direct answer.
The D.C. office insisted they did not know, and transferred me to a busy signal.
The Carson office promised to send me a written response, which I expect to get several days after the question is moot.

We can let Dingy slide on this, or we can demand that he actually make more than a token effort to REPRESENT US on this!

Just learned about Senate "Rule 14".

Using rule 14 Reid could easily bring the Travers nomination to a vote before the "Lame Duck" session's end.

That he is NOT doing so confirms for me that he intends to see ATF headed by an anti-RKBA zealot via "Recess Appointment", and deny all responsibility for it.

When do we start the recall process on Dingy?

Little over a month ago. It didn't work.

Update today, 12/16/10.

Hearing is STILL not scheduled.

Pinky has found time to put up a 1.1 BILLION dollar budget increase, with thousands of Pork "earmarks, to push a huge "Wilderness" and "National Monument" bill, get "Gays" into the military, a seven year gulf drilling moratorium, etc.

But "There is no time" to prevent anti-gun wacko Travers taking over control of BATFE.

So it's clear Dingy intends to impose insane and unconstitutional "Gun Control" on us, but he's going to deny any responsibility for it.

Gays are already in the military.  1.1 Billion might create some more jobs too. :D

I hope you intended that to be sarcasm?

$1.1 BILLION in new debt.
Only real jobs will be expansion of Fed. Gov.
New administrative cost can be expected to eat over half of any claimed economic benefit.

"Gay's" are in the military, but they still have to keep it to themselves and not demand special consideration for their affectation. We do not have the Greeks "sacred band", yet.

The planned "National Monument" will curtail hunting, mining, jobs, and BORDER PATROL operations, the Mex. crime Cartels will love it!

Drilling moratorium probably means gas prices go up another 50¢ per gallon or more in the next year or so, on top of all other factors pushing prices up.
Just another nail in our Nevada economies coffin.
Same for Pinky's Nevada gravel mining ban, I suppose we will now import GRAVEL from China too.

Oops!

My bad, I said $1.1 Billion, sorry (we will ALL be sorry!) it's actually $1.1 TRILLION!

Chump change. <sarc>

Semantics. They did not officially endorse Reid. They DID give him almost $5000 dollars and gargle his ballsack in an effort to get the CC shooting park. They had every intention of endorsing him until NRA members started threatening (and doing it) to cancel their memberships.
They still refused to endorse pro-gun Angle because they are a politically driven organization, willing to compromise.

Happier, but not truly confident we have dodged this bullet.
Still trying to find out if this also stopped the insane job killing bills that were improperly amended into the whole of the "Omnibus" garbage.

With Stinky (You could smell the tourist.....) Reid you can NEVER feel relieved until the session is absolutely OVER and ALL the pols have left the building!
I CLEARLY recall how he stuck us with the Black Rock "Wilderness" and "NCA", two days after his staff assured me that there was "No way" it could happen so late in the session.
Pinky then "amended" it into an appropriations bill at the last minute, presto, a big chunk of recreation, mineral, hunting, ranching, and geo-thermal land locked up forever.

When Dingy is intent on screwing us, he is a real weasel and will usually find a way.
This "Lame Duck" session cannot end soon enough.
"We the people" spoke at the polls, let the new crew make the decisions.

The Travers travesty is still on course to his "recess appointment"!
A debacle Reid is making NO effort to prevent.
