Re: Toomey-Manchin DEFEATED/Grassley-Cruz DEFEATED

today is a good day...a good day for freedom. Of course, with these votes on record, the antis know exactly who to strong arm or bribe before the actual bill is voted on. That is true, but so do we. My two idiotic senators from VA are on record as being dirt bags. VA is very pro-second amendment......

Re: Feinstein AWB/Magazine Restrictions DEFEATED

Burr Amendment being considered. Would remove veterans whose only qualification was having someone appointed to handle their finances.

This and one more vote today. Will resume tomorrow.

Correction: Would require a court to decide if a veteran, who is deemed mentally incompetent, can own a gun.

Re: Toomey-Manchin DEFEATED/Grassley-Cruz DEFEATED

This sounds encouraging. Maybe there will be no legislation at all on gun control. Of all the proposals the one that was opposed the least was Grassley-Cruz. Perhaps they can work with that to craft something that will pass. It seems like the more draconian proposals are going down to defeat for su...

Re: Toomey-Manchin DEFEATED

Grassley - Cruz, which sounds very good.

They will need the 46 nays and at least 14 of those who voted for Toomey-Manchin.

I'm hearing a lot of names called without hearing responses. Are the 54 not voting on this one?

Re: Traditional Shaving (Safety Razors / Straight Razors)

When I posted earlier, I couldn't remember what I used before the Trac II. This reminded me. It was a Schick In...
