The NRA Has Already Won

Oh, big whup — the debate on gun reform is going to proceed after a GOP filibuster attempt was defeated 68-31.  And shame on you, Mark Begich of Alaska and Mark Pryor of Arkansas for voting with the GOP.  That special circle in hell for cowards awaits.

Nothing like walking by your dead child’s room and thinking, “What a great victory to stop that filibuster.”

So we’ll get a debate on gun reform, we’ll get votes on gun reform, we just won’t get any real gun reform.

Broader background checks?  Sure, a good thing if the Manchin-Toomey deal passes.  But we need to deal with the semi-automatic weapons and large ammo clips, and that ain’t gonna happen.  More dead kids?  That’s definitely gonna happen.

  1. Five children escaped while Lanza was reloading one time. You do the math.
    There is no reason for a law-abiding citizen to have semi-automatic weapons and big clips. There are plenty of long guns and hand guns to do all the hunting/range shooting/protection people need.

    “Stop worrying about the law abiding citizen with no crazy in his mind and no criminal record who simply wants to go to his /her giun club and fire off some rounds at a paper target.”

    By your own logic, Harris, can’t that law abiding citizen just change clips?

    Honestly, I am glad that you somehow figured out how to use the internet and make your arguments public. Please keep it up. Unbeknownst to you, you are making quite a strong case for gun control with every fallacious comment you type.

    @ Harris Jordan:
    Thank you for making my case. Nothing will keep us, and our children, safe from guns until we finally stop making them, selling them, owning them and glorifying them.

  4. In a country of more than 300 million, the point is that we can’t always figure out who has an intent to kill until there are 20 dead children on the floor. So we get rid of the military-style weapons and ammo that no civilian needs.
    You can’t solve it from the person side, you have solve it from the weapon side. Other countries have crazy people, they just don’t have all the murders we do because the weapons aren’t as available to their crazy people.
