The Associated Press reports Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) is pushing for rule changes to eliminate the 60-vote filibuster threshold in the Senate in order to "win confirmation for some of [President Obama's] nominees for posts overseeing workers' and consumers' rights." 

But the question raised by Gun Owners of America (GOA) is: how long will it be until gun control is heaved upon the American people if the filibuster is done away with?

It was a filibuster that put the Manchin/Toomey background check bill into the light long enough for Senators on both sides of the aisle to realize what was in it and reject it. 

The bill was defeated on April 17 because it fell six votes shy of 60. But if Reid is successful in changing the rules, then Senator Joe Manchin's (D-WV) gun control bill could "soon be brought up again and passed."

This is enough to start the Revolution over!!!!

Yes we must take our "White House" back we can't let these little demons get away with this ????

We are having more military planes flying around, but it didn't look like one of ours here in Anchorage , Alaska today something is up ???

My understanding is that the doing away with the filibuster only pertains to appointees, not to anything else. Someone should double check me on this, but if true, don't get your underwear in a knot over something that won't be affected.

Once the rule is changed it applies to all bills brought to the floor of the Senate.  Furthermore, reid's blackmail  offer to withdraw rule change was made if the senate agreed to appoint the nominees, even those appointed illegally by obama. 

The change pertains only to appointees. They are not changing anything else. However, I don't trust them either. You put your foot in the door you can eventually get it wide open. The issue for the dumocrats is what happens when the shoe is on the other foot and the republicans ram though everything they want. In the past, this is what stopped the nuclear option. With the current class of idiots filling both chambers, they can't think beyond the present. Which also explains why they continue to kick our killer debt down the road. Eventually the entire government will do a self distruct. When that happens, be prepared to Lock & Load!!!

How naive!

When have they ever stoped when they get a toe in the door?   They will just snake in and "Bamb" we have been had


Gun control issues are a HOT POTATO for both parties. republicans have gone public with their anti-gun control position but many democrats are from pro gun states and know it can kill their political lives if they vote for gun control. Harry Reid is from a pro gun state, NOTE: the last bill is not dead! Reid voted to table it, the bill is still waiting in the top drew.  Reid has been on Obama's buddy list from day one, I have no dough they sold their souls to Obama ,based on we'll  pass any thing you want if you'll pass any thing we want! That crap went on for the first two years of Obama's presidency, it also was a big reason the republicans got control of the house. The American public is not as stupid as we think they are!

Not last weekend, but this is unfortunately sadly true.  On March 23rd at 4:00 a.m. the vote narrowly passed.  I would imagine we are all absolutely stunned (sarcasm) to find the ones who voted for this were all democrats?   So let's get them out there shall we?

Obama Lies Again: – Ignores That The Year After Signing The Stimulus More Than (4) Million Jobs Were Lost

Former President Obama, the only President in US history who had his FBI and other Intel agencies spy on the opposition party candidate, claims that he created the great economy that Americans are enjoying today. The only thing Obama created was debt and massive job losses with his horrible economic recovery.

Yesterday the former President tweeted an effort to take credit for President Trump’s successful economy:

Joe Hoft@joehoft

Of course another @BarackObama lie. He can’t open his mouth without lying. 11 years ago the US lost (4.3) million jobs over the next 12 months. Horrible liar. 

Barack Obama  @BarackObama

Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history.

President Obama’s policies were a disgrace and a failure. He doubled the national debt in spite of zero interest rates from the Fed. His recovery was the worst in US history.

Also, Obama’s assertion is just plain false. The ‘Stimulus’ was passed in February 2009 right after Obama took over the Presidency. He promised to not pass any bills for at least a week to allow for the bills to be read by the people but lied as soon as he was sworn in. The Stimulus was hundreds and hundreds of pages of government handouts to Democrat districts and it was close to $1 million. This was not what America needed and it led to the Tea Party.

Far-left Wikipedia has this to say about the Stimulus:

Note that in his infinite wisdom, NYT economist Paul Krugman is credited with arguing that “the stimulus was far smaller than the economic crisis warranted”. (He also said the markets would crash and burn if President Trump was elected President.)

The data shows that the 12 months after Obama’s stimulus, the US lost 4.3 million jobs:

In Obama’s first three years he netted a loss of 1.5 million jobs compared to President Trump who has added more than 6.7 million jobs.

When it comes to the economy, the billionaire schools the community organizer every time.
