House Republicans Working on Backdoor Deal to Move Gun Bill Through House
#1
Quote:House Republicans are more involved in the behind the scenes efforts to move a gun bill through the House than most might be led to believe based on public knowledge.

It has long been thought that even if the extremely divided Senate was to pass a gun bill, that it would most likely die a slow death in the GOP controlled House, especially with the midterm elections coming up.


But House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) told The Hill on Friday that he’s had “a lot of discussions” with Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on guns. Goodlatte suggested the Speaker is more involved in the behind-the-scenes wrangling of how to move a gun bill than the Ohio Republican has let on in public.

“We are trying to improve the system to keep people who are barred under the law from owning firearms, from getting access to them. We don’t think the things that were proposed in the Senate do that. So we have not backed away from trying to figure out how to improve that, but we’ve made no decisions yet about what to do,” Goodlatte explained.

There is a companion bill to the Manchin-Toomey Senate legislation in the House which was authored by Rep. Pete King (RINO, NY). That legislation currently has 159 co-sponsors, which is extremely high for a bill that seems to be stuck in committee, so it’s not as if the House has taken no action on the issue of gun control.

It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"

I love how the gun debate is somehow about keeping guns out of the hands of criminals. While the immigration debate is somehow about keeping criminals in this country.

Admit nothing.  Deny everything. Demand proof.
If we lie to the government, it's a crime. If the government lies to the people, it's called politics.

I really think we need to reframe the debate in terms of control, tyrany, and genoci de instead of crime reduction. We also need to do a much better job of educating people why gun control doesn't reduce violent crime.

I agree 100% but we also need to find someone such as yourself, who people will be more ready to hear on the topic, than the Joe Schmoe's on the board, to be the spokesman. <Hint> <Hint> Big Grin Wink

With the seizure of Associated Press records and targeting of conservative groups by the IRS it will be easier to make that argument now.

If it is done in the right way, it could be effective.
A gun rack in a pick-up is not for holding guns. Its a place for women to hold on to. Smile

Nice try.

Boehner is not conservative. Just like McLame. And King, he's a New Yawk statist.
