And the Polls that keep being quoted are as bogus as the polls that the Republicans listened to in the last election. So keep doing what you are doing and see who comes out right

There is however a bit of duplicity showing in the exultation of Michael Bloomberg’s money distorting the outcome of distant political races while decrying the NRA’s involvement in similar activity.

I suspect Mr. Schneider that you never read the Manchin-Toomey compromise and therefore any discussion of it’s vague wording on critical features would be wasted on you.

Thank you for giving me impetus to buy a NRA life membership for my wife and several more employees. Bloomberg is one man with a lot of money. The NRA is 4 million Americans with a little money and a lot of energy. We’ll see who punishes who in the mid-terms next year.

Nothing proposed would have prevented Sandy Hook. Even the Dept of Justice says that less than 1% of criminals get guns from gun shows. The problem is that the issue is very complex and our politicians are of simple minds. Most guns that criminals get their hands on come from black market sales. This is where the focus needs to be but even more so is the need to protect our students and individuals in “gun free” zones. Not one word of any form of funding for armed guards or training was mentioned in the bill. What a waste of time. Shame on the DNC for using this horrific event to further their agendas. When sensible legislation appears in Congress I will be all for it.

The California representative was helped by Bloomberg’s money? The NRA donating lots of money to other (potential) members of Congress.

Doesn’t something feel wrong about this?
