McCain VS

Senator John McCain and Senator Harry Reid conspire against the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution with backroom politics. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is still trying to rig the Senate rules so that President Barack Obama can get his anti-gun and anti-Constitution agenda passed. Reid is working on a "compromise" where certain Republicans like John McCain will help Reid do his bidding.

Vice President Joe Biden 'guaranteed' to ailing Boston Mayor Tom Menino that sweeping gun control legislation would be passed by the end of January. How sweeping? A quick look at Feinstein's semi-auto ban legislation suggests that up to 75% of all handguns currently in circulation would be banned, along with as much as 50% of all long guns.

Under one new 'compromise' being floated on Capitol Hill, the Senate would change its rules so that it could pass a gun ban with only 50 votes (plus the vote of Vice President Joe Biden).

McCain was irritated at Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, who worked with Gun Owners of America on a variety of pro-gun issues that slowed down his defense funding bill. So McCain would not lose any sleep if his rules 'compromise' diminished our ability to kill anti-gun legislation in the future. McCain is now working with anti-gun Senator Carl Levin on a series of rules changes to make gun control a lot easier to pass.

Senator Rand Paul is planning to offer an amendment requiring a two-thirds vote in the Senate before any anti-gun measure can be passed. Many supporters of the Second Amendment are writing their senators demanding they oppose the McCain-Levin package making gun control easier to pass while supporting Rand Paul's amendment to require a two-thirds vote to enact further gun control in the nation.

I wonder if criminals will obey the ban?
