    I'm thrilled to see this but I'm curious as to how the Dems. let this in the Bill.
    I'm just looking gift horses in their mouths.

    I caught a part of a floor speech by Sen. John Thune having something to do with concealed carry. I believe this was part of the same bill. This was on CSPAN yesterday.
    Anybody know what that was about? :confused:

    Edit: google was my friend. :rolleyes: :D

    Here is a video of Sen. Thune's floor speech but I can't find if the amendment made it into the bill. I guessing that it didn't. :confused:
    My Senator, David Vitter was a co-author of the bill.

    Do my eyes deceive me? We actually won this one? How did this get through a Dem controlled senate? I am literally (but pleasantly) stunned!!!

    In 1994, Bill Clinton blamed Senate and House support for the 1994 'Crime Bill' as the reason 20+ Senate and House Democrat seats were lost. This was the 'Republican Revolution' of 1994 and led the way for the 'Freshman Republicans'. 2010 is coming. The liberal idiots don't want to be slapped down again... ;)

    I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that MAYBE some of the more conservative dem's are even getting a little tired of the radical left turn the government is taking and maybe made a deal with the Democrat leadership. ??? I wonder if the Rebublicans have been enticing some of the blue-dogs to jump ship ? That'd be really cool.

    I just hope this bodes well for the next 'assault' weapons ban bill!

    Don't forget what it is attached to: voting representation for the District, i.e., a solid Democrap vote, to be followed by the attempt to get two Senators for the District, another solid two Democrap votes. That is a pretty high price to pay.

    Yep, the antis figure they'll let this one slip for now, betting on having more Dem votes in Congress later for legislation to ban/register/confiscate.
