Gun Control Bill Fails in DC
And the president throws all sorts of temper tantrums, blaming the minority Republicans for obstructing the bill and amendments.
Last we checked, there was a democratic majority in the Senate and the Obama/Biden team couldn't even hold that together. Mark Kirk (RINO-IL) voted with the democrats on each and every amendment, but in the end, it was between 4 and 8 democrats defecting to minimize the damage to their own reelection chances that sank this.
Gallup even came out with a poll that said only 4% of Americans think gun control is an important issue:
- Only 4 percent of Americans think guns and gun control are an important problem facing the country, according to Gallup, and far more Americans are concerned about the economy, unemployment and the federal debt.
About as many people are concerned about gun control and are concerned about North Korea - and the Norks are threatening us with nuclear annihilation on a near daily basis.
