Senate fails to pass gun regs

| April 17, 2013

Pat sends us a link to the Washington Post which tearfully reports that the new gun control regulations have failed to get the necessary number of votes in the Senate. And it went down in a bipartisan vote;

The vote on the so-called Manchin-Toomey amendment was 54 in favor, 46 against — failing to reach the 60-vote threshold needed to move ahead. Four Republicans supported it, and four Democrats voted no.

Two screeching gun control harpies were removed from the chamber when they shouted “Shame on you!” to no one in particular.

“They are an embarrassment to this country, that they don’t have any compassion or care for people who have been taken brutally from their families,” Maisch said as officers attempted to remove her from the building. “I hate them,” she said of the senators.

“We’re sick and tired of the death in this country and these legislators stand up there and think it’s a bunch of numbers,” said Haas, whose daughter, Emily, was wounded in the April 2007 shooting at Virginia Tech.

“It’s a shame, it’s appalling, it’s disgusting,” she added.

I guess they couldn’t find anyone who was pleased the bill was defeated, because they didn’t bother to interview anyone with that particular view. Oh, by the way, one of those Republicans who defected was – surprise! – John McCain;

“Is this a perfect solution? No. will it prevent all future acts of gun violence? Of course not,” McCain said. “Would it have prevented the most recent acts of gun violence? In all likelihood, no. But it is reasonable, and it is my firm conviction that it is constitutional.”

So, McCain just thought that he should “do something” irrespective of the result. Who needs him? Harry Reid, at the last minute decided that he’d vote for it, too, I know, you’re surprised;

In a notable reversal, Reid said he would vote for a proposed assault weapon ban “because maintaining a law and order is more important than satisfying conspiracy theories, who believe in black helicopters and false flags. I’ll vote for the ban because saving the lives of police officers – young and old – and innocent civilians – young and old, is more important than preventing imagined tyranny.”

The tyranny that Harry, the draft dodger, says is imagined, is right there in his mirror every morning.

Joe Bite Me, probably one of the big reasons that bill failed, since he was riding herd on gun control and couldn’t keep his lips from flapping about the most ridiculous shit on the planet was fairly pissed;

Biden reiterated that the proposal would not create or lead to the creation of a federal gun registry. “Nothing can be further from the truth,” he said.

Biden also dismissed suggestions that the measures would infringe upon people’s constitutional right to bear arms.

“There is no – zero – no infringement on the Second Amendment, not one single thing being proposed,” he said.

Yeah, well, no one on the planet believes a thing you’re saying anymore, Bite Me. You’re a punch line. You should resign. After Sandy Hook, gun control was a slam dunk and the president guaranteed it’s failure by putting Bite Me in charge of it.

What a wet firecracker. Yeah, and if the Left wants to blame someone, blame Biden and the other morons who thought they had something to contribute to the debate, but they were uninformed and downright ignorant and dishonest. Blame the inflated statistics and polls. Blame Bloomberg for being a rich guy trying to shove his personal ignorance down our collective throat. The soft drink ban in NYC contributed to this failure as much as anything. Blame Mark Kelly for trying to deny stuff for the rest of us while buying the same stuff for himself.

The gun grabbers showed their collective ass throughout the “national discussion” and no real American wanted to be seen as part of the ignorant, hypocritical crowd who wanted to disarm America while clinging to their own guns. And now, despite the failure of the legislation, the Democrats are going to pay for their lies to our face next November. Now they know why the Clinton Gun Ban wasn’t renewed last decade.

    ROFLMAO. That’s just fuckin awesome…the Internet equivalent of the fox and the grapes.

    Dear sippy,

    Fuck you. Just fuck you.

  3. USMCE8Ret says:

    On a parting note, there is a special place in hell for purveyors of porn. I think Sippy should know that – the fuggin’ piece of shit.

  4. Ex-PH2 says:

    And may I say “WHEW! Glad that’s over with.”

    • Jonn Lilyea says:

      I really hate banning people, I really do, but some things I just won’t tolerate. I don’t care if you disagree with me, but apparently, I’m a racist because I once compared Obama and Benghazi to OJ Simpson. I don’t remember doing it, and even if I did, I don’t see how it’s racist. But, ya know, when you’re a racist, everything looks likes racism.

  5. Old Trooper says:

    @151: Comedy gold right there.

    In the immortal words of every military person in the US: Because……fuck you, that’s why.

  6. Twist says:

    It’s the Liberal way. If you don’t fall in lockstep with their opinion then you are a racist.

  7. Old Trooper says:

    @155: Ex-PH2; you’re my new hero for your rant in #140. You were reverting to your sailor ways there at the end 🙂

  8. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    Yeah, pardon me while I feel bad. [1…done.] There, all better.

  9. Ex-PH2 says:

    @159 – Old Trooper, I am honored.

  10. Hondo says:

    Damn, and I didn’t even get a chance to tell Sippy “My Favorite Pinhead” the Porn Enabler goodbye.

    But I can’t really improve on what Jonn said in comment 142, so that’s OK. (smile)

  11. OWB says:

    As nearly as I can tell, the current lefty loon definition of racism is: opposing someone’s policies without regard to that someone’s skin color is racism, if that someone is a person of color; supporting someone because he/she is a person of color without regard to their policies is NOT racism; opposing someone who is white is never racism especially if they are from the south, Texas, support the Bill of Rights in it’s entirety, or are a veteran (it’s little unclear how the loony left feels about veterans of color, but they mostly assume them to also be lefty loons based upon their skin color, which in this instance, and because of who they are, would NOT be racism); and any other circumstance that a lefty loon feels like injecting the term racism into a verbal exchange with anyone, particularly those who understand the actual meaning of the word.

  12. smoke-check says:

    Really sad to see him go (sarcasm level = 0). Honestly I used to have some level of respect for the guy. It’s not easy to hold an unpopular view. But he stuck to his ** ahem ** guns. But in the end he got utterly boring. His view points were all emotion based and he refused to realize when he wasn’t being consistent in his own arguments.

    The porn industry thing was an interesting revelation I think. The guy loved to call everyone here a “ist” any chance he could. So were sexist for the use of the word harpy, but actively working in an industry that objectifies and demeans women is not? Awesome logic. Someone mentioned the type of port which does not involve women at all, which is doubly interesting because it would give a financial incentive for his desire to normalize homosexuality. Something he seemed to do on every occasion. Be interesting to know if he stands to benefit somehow from de-stigmatizing illegal immigration?

    Good bye insipid, I shall pour out a little liquor for you the next chance I get. It will be good liquor, one with a full bodied and decidedly uninsipid flavor …see what I did there?!?

  13. Roger in Republic says:

    I knew this latest round of social engineering ie. Gun control, was doomed when Obozo named Joe Biteme to ramrod it through the congress. Putting a vice-president in charge of anything is a sure way to have it disappear from face of the earth. The surest way to stop prohibited persons from obtaining guns is to enforce the existing federal laws. A convicted felon can be sent to prison for even touching a firearm. The current Department of Justice has the worst record of prosecution of gun violations in recent history. If Holder would build a fire under his US Attorneys he could go a long way toward reducing the number of guns in the wrong hands.

    And, Insipid, your name says all I need to know about you.

    Definition of INSIPID

    1: lacking taste or savor : tasteless
    2: lacking in qualities that interest, stimulate, or challenge : dull, flat

  14. USMCE8Ret says:

    @165 – You mention the current DoJ administration, namely, that Holder needs to light a fire under his Ass’t U.S. Attorney’s. That’d work, except Holder doesn’t have the balls nor the vision to do the job he was nominated to do. Holder needs to be replaced by someone who will DO the job and revitalize that organization because we all know the current U.S. Attorney won’t do it. Until that happens, DoJ will continue to be the joke that it is.

  15. MCPO NYC USN (Ret.) says:


    You know damn well Insipid is banging away on his keyboard trying to get back in here.

    He is probably foaming at the mouth not having anyone to talk at!

    Holy fuck nuggets … I wish I was a fly on the wall in his basement apartment. Insipid surrounded by empty pizza boxes and Mountain Dew cans … he is probably loosing his mind now!


  16. MCPO NYC USN (Ret.) says:

    @ NH … “I like you as a human being and all”


  17. PintoNag says:

    The gun legislation has been shelved for now. Reid also said that the fight wasn’t over, that this is just the beginning.

    We’ve been warned.

  18. Jonn Lilyea says:

    Actually, we’ve emailed a few times and Insipid admitted that we put up with him longer than some liberal sites he used to frequent. Oh, yeah, he also said there are no women involved in the pr0n with which he’s involved, so….

  19. OWB says:

    Doesn’t really matter – someone is being exploited, Jonn. If not the girl, then the young man or boy who is playing the girl. No big surprise there, of course. Lefty loons just love to exploit people and dehumanize them.

  20. UpNorth says:

    @#170. No women involved with the porn he’s involved with? Why is that not a bug surprise? Just having teenaged boys involved makes it OK?

  21. Ex-PH2 says:

    No women? Why am I not surprised.

    Oh, who cares. He’s gone. It’s easier to breathe in here now.

  22. A Proud Infidel says:

    I’ll bet Sippy-poo was SO mad, he stomped his favorite tinfoil hat into oblivion!!

  23. NHSparky says:

    Oh, yeah, he also said there are no women involved in the pr0n with which he’s involved, so….

    Goats and small boys. Great. Just fuckin great. Bet that shit plays real well in Pakistan.

  24. Hondo says:

    I don’t know just how wide a net RICO casts. But if any of those “non-women” in the porn Sippy was contributing to were minor humans of either gender (e.g., under age 18), it’s possible Sippy may have a bit of ‘splainin’ to do. To Federal LE.

    Writing, re-writing, or editing scripts, storylines, narriative, whatever used in the preparation of porn may constitute active participation in the enterprise under RICO. Child porn has been ruled to be legally obscene by the courts. And obscenity is NOT protected by the First Amendment (Miller v. California).

    Sleep well waiting for that knock at the door, Sippy.

  25. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    At least Sippy helped to dispel the sterotype that homosexual males are into little boys, porn, and are just like the rest of us who are not. Wait. Check that.
