Now if the Dems can get enough Republicans to quit Congress...

The House will pretty much ignore this. Remember, it's all bull to raise money for the next campaign. Global warming and abortion, let alone picking on gays is out. Stealing our guns are in.

But what would the left say if it was the first amendment instead of the second, hmmm?

» Senate votes to overcome filibuster of gun bill » News -- GOPUSA

Next week senators will be able to offer amendments that pose the real test for whether the larger bill will succeed. Both gun-rights advocates and supporters of even stricter gun control expect to offer additional proposals that would ban the sales of certain types of assault weapons ban or expand concealed weapons permits. The first amendment expected to come to a vote would be a compromise reached this week on background checks brokered by Sens. Joe Manchin (D-W. Va.) and Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) that was seen as increasing the likelihood that the larger package will pass. "The political landscape of America on gun safety is changing before our eyes," Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) said just moments before the vote at a news conference with family members of the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre who later watched the vote from the Senate gallery. "The political conventional wisdom four months ago was that nothing would be done. Today we prove that conventional wisdom wrong."
