    and those are exactly a bunch of liberal RINO's voting in favor of moving to debate.

    The bill of course will end up getting watered down further but that is actually rather encouraging... though I suspect it reflects a gentlemans agreement between Reid and the Republicans to allow the process to proceed to that further watering down.

    •  Both of North Dakota's senators voted to (0+ / 0-)

      proceed to debate -- Heidi Heitkamp says "We should have a conversation."  But, talk is all they seem to be willing to support.  Neither of them, Heitkamp or Hoeven, will cast a vote for any restrictions on gun purchase or ownership.  That's my bet, and I expect many others who voted with the majority here are in the same place.
