    Default Republicans Cave In - Senators near a deal on background checks for private gun sales

    Republicans Cave In - Senators near a deal on background checks for most private gun sales

    February 24, 2013
    Source: Washington Post

    A bipartisan group of senators is on the verge of a deal that would expand background checks to all private firearms sales with limited exemptions, but significant disagreements remain on the issue of keeping records of private gun sales, according to aides familiar with the talks.

    An agreement would be a bold first step toward consideration of legislation to limit gun violence in the wake of the mass shootings at a Connecticut elementary school in December and comes as the Senate Judiciary Committee is expected this week to begin considering new proposals to limit gun violence.

    The talks, led by two Democrats and two Republicans, are expected to earn more GOP support in the coming days and likely enough to move the bill through the Senate, according to senior aides of both parties who were not authorized to speak publicly on the matter.

    “These negotiations are challenging, as you’d expect on an issue as complicated as guns,” the chief negotiator, Sen. Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.), said in a statement Saturday. “But all of the senators involved are approaching this in good faith. We are all serious about wanting to get something done, and we are going to keep trying.”

    I think i might be done with those jackwads. Even worse, there is a short blurb in that article that says the house is working on their own legislation apart from the senate. Sickening.

    well it ain't rally democrats and republicans working together,

    what it is is that Obamma held out a sack full of $$$ hoping there would be enough crooks in the rupea-ublican party stupid and greedy enough to grab the sack of $$ and run--

    looks like greed wins one for the socialist -

    -- Obamma is smart enough to use the republican weakness "greed" against us all.

    Well either way they are just are just making decisions irregardless of what America really wants. Sure waving letters from school age kids looks good but trying to enforce issues pushed by people who DONT EVEN OWN GUNS, seems to be the knee jerk to both parties. Repubs caved on taxes, and will most ikely continue to cave lest they be potrayed as "unapproachable" or "extremists". This contry started to take a dive when our elected representatives started bending your morals in pursuit of self gain. Now is not the time for the party which proclaims it represents "The Moral of America" to start bending with the tide.

    Talk about 'balls on a priest and tits on a nun'; Do you think that now that Ratzenburger is no longer pope, do you think he'll be tried for war crimes first? or pedophilia?

    You're dead on Bill. There really isn't a Democratic and Republican party anymore. They are all just actors portraying what they are told by their puppetmaster(s) to do. They pretend to fight over an issue, just like television wrestlers do. The outcome is already known. The Republicans come to a "compromise" with the Democrats, and they institute some new law, rule, regulation, or whatever that was EXACTLY what they wanted all along. I am so freaking sick of this sham that is Washington Politics, it's not even funny. We are WAY past the point where our founding fathers would have been spurred into action.
