“Two top senators predicted Thursday that gun legislation will come up again for a Senate vote – possibly before the end of the year – as public attitudes shift toward stricter controls,” latimes.com reports. And why would public opinion shift towards gun control? Especially as they’re currently shifting in the other direction. Methinks Senator Schumer and his Republican BFF are anticipating another bloodletting. “I think we’re going to bring this bill back before the end of the year and I think you may find some changes,” Chuck pronounced at a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor. “Lots of senators who thought it was safe to vote against it are not so sure any more.” Right. “Because of changing attitudes.” Now, guess the ID of the other Senator predicting Gun Control 2.0 . . .
Sen. John McCain of Arizona, a key Republican backer of the measure who spoke at the same event, concurred. “I do agree with Chuck. I think the issue is going to come back,” he said.
McCain said Congress needs to address specific aspects of gun violence that were not covered in the bill, including “the issue of crazy people who do terrible things.”
Like . . . Senators Charles Schumer and John McCain and the rest of the civilian disarmament industry. And Joe Biden? Well we all know how meshuga the Veep is on this one. He’s all in now, and forever more . . .
Vice President Joe Biden reassured leading gun control groups Thursday that the administration remains committed to pushing an expansion of background checks for gun purchases through Congress, according to one of the event’s attendees.
Biden, who has led the administration’s efforts on gun control in the wake of the shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, told the meeting of about 15 participants that despite last week’s defeat of a bi-partisan measure in the Senate to expand checks at gun shows and online sales, that this was just the beginning.
From his lips to the devil’s ears.
