    What caused it? Who caused it?

    What are all of the hoarders going to do with all of that expensive ammo? Costs to much to shoot it. May as well shoot the cheap stuff that is coming.

    I guess the 90% of Americans in favor was over rated slightly

    I'm sure Bush will get the blame on this one, as usual.

    Taken from Big M's website.......Please read the whole thing.

    "State officials admitted they were doing the bidding of the White House. In February, Biden flew to the state to strong-arm Democratic lawmakers who were feeling pressure from their constituents to vote against the bills."

    Biden and his boss both should both be impeached for being a traitor to the United States Constitution and the good people of the USA!!!!!! And each one of those State lawmakers should be thrown in a prison cell with boobs tattooed on their backs.

    Prior to the vote Dingy Harry said "we have the wind at our back."

    Little did he know it was only the hot air of his constituents.

    Now, it's going to get real ugly. My early exuberance, same as when Hillary lost the nomination, me thinks will be regretted.

    Never underestimate the power of ignorant people in large groups.

    I'm willing to bet Obama, Reid, etal didn't want the bill to pass. They want the issue for 2014. They are going ram it down the throats of the low information voter that they tried to pass "common sense" gun regulations, but the mean nasty radical Republicans voted against it.

    After all - who but a radical would vote aginst background checks to keep a "psycho" from obtaining an automatic weapon? Who? Those insenstive, uncaring, miserable Republicans would.

    Don't get me wrong. I'M GLAD THE BILL DIDN'T PASS, but this thing ain't going away, just be prepared for the onslaught in 2014.

    NSSF Issues Statement after Senate Votes

    NEWTOWN, Conn. -- Today, the U.S. Senate voted on several measures that would have impacted the firearms and ammunition industry and our Second Amendment rights. Thanks to the hard work of our allies in the Senate, in the end no anti-gun measures were adopted.

    The flawed Manchin-Toomey amendment, opposed by NSSF, was defeated as was Senator Feinstein's (D-Calif.) amendment to institute a new "assault weapons ban" and an arbitrary limit on magazine capacity. Unfortunately, a handful of positive, solutions-based amendments also failed to pass the Senate.The NSSF-backed Grassley substitute amendment, which would have improved current law and fixed the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS), fell short by one of the closer margins of today's amendments.

    All Americans share the goal of wanting to make our communities safer. The civil debate on the Senate floor today further shows that reasonable minds can disagree on how to best achieve this goal. Looking ahead, NSSF will continue to work to find real solutions that improve current law, fix the NICS background check system to ensure all appropriate criminal and adjudicated mental health records are entered into the system, to provide law enforcement with additional tools they need to arrest and prosecute illegal firearms traffickers and straw purchasers and to urge effective, consistent enforcement of existing laws, all without infringing our Constitutional rights and unduly burdening our industry.

    Today's votes do not represent the end of the discussion in Congress or in America. NSSF looks forward to moving ahead with the work that remains to be done to try and help make our families safer and preserve our firearms freedoms.
