  •  Yep - had they voted against it, some GOPers (6+ / 0-)

    could have lost their jobs in humiliating fashion, just imagine, GOPers voting against policy that would keep guns from the dangerously mentally ill - in Colorado!

    Impossible.

    •  It looks like you are catching on..... (0+ / 0-)

      why be coy about it?

      No bans. No political consequences.

      So long as the gun control proposals are reasonable, they will pass with little to no objections.

      Now that you have figured it out; you should be among the most vocal opponents of gun/mag bans because they are obstacles to reasonable gun control & to Democrats keeping their seats.
      Unless, of course 'reasonable gun control' isn't actually your goal.

      Those who would sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither.

      •  I see, so you are suggesting that anyone who (4+ / 0-)

        proposes a gun ban of any type will face the wrath of gun owners nationwide, for example, when this gun owner heard Dems proposed an AWB, he had this to say:

        Turns out, this guy is at the Bundy ranch rallying with your favorite group of terrorist:

        James Yeager is calling from Cliven Bundy’s front yard, where he’s one of several (he won’t say how many) providing 24-hour security to the Bundy family. He and his friend packed up “a full medical kit and a camera” and drove 26 ½ hours from their home in Camden, Tennessee last week to document what he calls “a tremendous overreach of federal power.” He’s been posting daily videos to his YouTube site.

        When asked if he also packed weapons, Yeager said, “of course. I’m always armed. This is not any different than any other day for me.”

        These are the terrorists whose right to open carry you still are defending:

        I suppose you would say, Yeager is a man of principle and Democrats need to understand he is going to use his gun to threaten whoever he needs to threaten in order to get his way.

        This is the type of person who is adamantly against an assault weapons ban - and you support him.

        The lesson you want Dems to learn is to appease terrorists.
