“My own little prediction – I think we’re going to bring this bill back before the end of the year and I think you may find some changes,” said Schumer, during a breakfast sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor. “We may change the bill a little bit – but I think you may find some changes out there in the public. Lots of senators who thought it was safe to vote against it because of the intensity are not so sure anymore.”
Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., one of four Republicans to vote in support of the measure, called the proposal “common sense,” even though it wasn’t precisely what he would have crafted.
“But I do agree with Chuck that I think the issue is going to come back,” he said at the same event
Not unexpected. The DC Royalty is reeling after being slapped by the serfs and are bound and determined to “teach” us a lesson. We committed the ultimate sin, the heinous crime: We made them look stupid and hurt their Pride and that cannot be forgiven, only punished.
I also understand their urgency: Next year is an election year and they are afraid to lose their jobs or at least to lose the influence they have on the country. That is our second ultimate sin as they are now transformed into addicts mainlining the power of Washington D.C. and fear the idea of going cold turkey, becoming regular folks or as they see us nothing but plebeians.
In my opinion they are making a mistake. The economy is being ignored and Obamacare is going to screw people in such ways that they are going to become very irritated with the Administration. If their plan is to use Gun Control as a protective blanket to deflect what’s coming, they may be in for a surprise when it fails. In a sense it would be ironic that a government would collapse because of guns and without one shot fired or a rifle waved in anger.
I think they still have not processed what happened. It will be their undoing. I just hope they don’t take a shortcut down Stupid Way.
They should have followed the advice we gave them many years ago: Just leave us alone.
