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.
