Bipartisan Tweediocy

As we all knew, and expected, a Senate bill to expand gun background checks failed to gain the 60 votes needed to pass.  No matter what the NRA, and its lunatic followers wanted the country to believe, the bill was not about the second amendment, it was about strengthening  and adding to laws that are already in effect.

The majority of people in the U.S. was in favor of mandatory background checks and supported a reform of our gun laws. The most discouraging and pathetic part of the charade was seeing how lawmakers voted and how removed they are from the pulse of the Nation. In the end it was a political game, there was nothing bipartisan about it at all, only an embarrassing spectacle.

For those of you who are keeping score, it’s Wayne LaPierre: 1. Gun control proponents: 0

After the sessions, the senators were tweeting and congratulating each other for working so well together and reaching across the aisle.

Here are some of the tweets:

@senatorsmithwesson

We had the balls to stand up to the overwhelming wishes of the American people. They are such crybabies.

@senatorAK47

They thought they could scare us into voting to protect millions of innocent people from harm. We had to draw a line in the sand.

@senatorRuger

The polls said that 90% of the American people wanted us to vote a certain way, we agreed that we could not cave in to another special-interest group, enough already.

@senatorColt

We had to set an example. If we had voted the way the American people wanted us to, it would have made us nothing more than their elected representatives.

@senator38

When we want we can reach across the aisle to defy the interests of all

@senatorBeretta

Who do they think they are? Yes, they voted us into office but we are not puppets they can't tell us how to vote

@senatorBrowning

It was true bipartisanship. Republicans love guns, Dems like guns.

@senatorGlock

It was a good day; we did nothing to prevent future shootings.

@senator45

They are crazy if they think we are obliged to listen to their input. Our duty is to do as we please

@GOP

Don't they get it yet? GOP stands for Guns Over People. No need for gun control just make sure everyone has a weapon.

@NRA

Thank you Senators for another job well done. Your checks are in the mail

@NRA_Marketing

And we even have something for the fags, go to www.pinkgun.com

@WlaPierre

God, it feels good to win. It just feels really, really good. Happiness is a warm gun. Pier Angelo
