The one group that the NRA and the GOP may have underestimated and  alienated through  their opposition to background checks  is the suburban moms (and moms in general).
Every mother who saw how those 2nd graders were taken,   wept for the kids (theirs as well as the victims).  The pain and fear were real and they could picture themselves in the shoes of those distraught, now  Read More...

If the NRA truly was celebrating carnage, Durbin might have a point. Where are his examples?

Must be in the deepest, and darkest recesses of his imagination. What makes the good Senator think that requiring background checks on every sale will stop the already illegal sales by criminals to other criminals?

Does Dick Durbin like giving May Day speeches to communists and anarchists?

Every real American should celebrate everytime someone is shot as it benefits the weapons industry, enriching it's owners and executives.

Of course not. The sooner one die, the sooner one come to paradise. And being shot also enrich the owners and executives of the weapon industry. A great solution for every American christian conservative.

70K law abiding Gun owners gathered in Houston and not 1 person shot..guess what? there wasnt any murderous rampages either....gun free zones equal ki lling zones.

Do you seriously not see the flaw in your position? If guns equal crime, more guns in an area should equal more crime, no?

The Daily Show did a wonderful segment on gun control in Australia. Check it out if you haven't already. It should be a revelation for all the people who keep saying politicians can't do anything about guns, or that these kind of laws won't work.

Then go live in Australia. I say it's hogwash, but giving you the benefit of the doubt - citing just a few countries (all of which surrounded by water, interestingly enough) does not make a sufficient argument that gun control works universally.

On a side note, Australia also doesn't have frenzied and poorly educated liberals, for example. No Chris Dorners, Adam Lanzas, and the like.

Being surrounded by water is a HUGE deterrent to criminals. Lets see someone from East Timor carry a garbage bag full of dope to Australia.

we're celebrating the defeat of those who use murdered children as props in attempt to steal our rights instead of pushing real laws like improved security that would work to protect children. BTW, 70K people w guns joined together in Houston and not ONE person was shot.

Of course not, because that's the best place for people who commit those kind of atrocities to obtain the means to do so. They're not gonna bite the hand that feeds.

I watched some of that convention. It was an outrage. There they were, talking about "their second amendment rights" while NRA lobby for gun manufactures laughs at them all the way to the bank. NRA has guns for kids called the "criket" as young as 4 and 5 years old. And there was Sarah Palin there to take swipes at the President as usual. What she doesn't realize is that it is the American people not the President who want background checks on guns. Dim wit.

I'm glad you were outrage because we have no respect for traitors who would use the death of innocent children to steal our rights..I still have the chipmunk that I bought for my now grown children 20 years ago, it's one of my prized possessions.

"The National Rifle Association can go to Texas and celebrate defeating that measure, but they certainly shouldn't celebrate when they look at the carnage that takes place virtually every day in America because convicted felons have guns."

Lies. You know, and your anti-gun friends have even said, that the background check bill wouldn't have saved lives. It was just a stepping stone. As Biden put it "a first step". We won't have it. We know the truth, and the truth won.
11:55 AM on 05/06/2013
it sounds like Holder and Obama are failing in their enforcement job if convicted felons are breaking yet another law by possessing firearms..I guess they were too busy letting guns go to the mexican drug cartels

Right... because this is Fantasia!!!
Here the mops do the floors and the brooms sweep all on their own...not to forget that guns magically get up on their own, start walking around trying to shoot people.

Grow up and get real.

There is no requirement that you own a gun, especially if you don't know what to do with it. We're just asking for the same respect.

In the United States AAs commit the majority of gnnn kllllings.

Therefore, the simple way to stop the majority of these crrrimes is to pass a law that prohibits AAs from having gnnnns. Does Durbin have the courrrage to tackle the real problem??

Spin that loss…

The NRA has a lot to celebrate this weekend and thanks to Obama, Biden, Feinstein, Cuomo, Durbin, and etcetera, they have plenty of hard facts to support a renewed membership and fundraising drive…
