Slow and Steady Wins the RACE, Part TWO…

The Manchin-Toomey background check amendment, one of nine proposed changes to a gun control bill currently being debated in the U.S. Senate, on Wednesday failed to get the 60 votes required for passage.

Fifty-four U.S. Senators voted “aye” and 46 voted “nay.”

The proposal, named for Sens. Joe Manchin (D-W. Va.) and Patrick Toomey (R-Pa.), would have expanded existing background checks on gun buyers to cover firearms sold at gun shows and via the Internet.

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid voted against the proposal. He was joined by Democrat Sens. Baucus, Begich, Heitkamp, Pryor.

“Reid voted no for procedural reasons,” CBS News’ Major Garrett explains. “As Majority Leader, a ‘no’ vote allows him to bring the amendment up again.

Arizona Republican John McCain voted in favor of the bill. He was joined by Republican Sens. Collins, Kirk, and Toomey.  (The Blaze)

There were nine amendments proposed.  None passed, including some pro-rights amendments.  BUT, debate continues on so-called ‘gun control’ in the Senate.


In short, we’re not done yet.  Perhaps we’ve won a battle, but certainly not the war.

THIS has yet to occur…

We must stay on-point and remain vigilant!

  1. So THIS is how Reid gets an “A” rating from the NRA? If so, they’re even more tone-deaf than I thought. (And yes, I’m a member.)
