It’s not often that we agree with USA Today. But author, Gregory Korte, got it right in Friday’s column. The Senators who refused to cast a “no” vote on Thursday - and who refused to drive a stake through the heart of S. 649 - have given the President a key symbolic victory.
Senate voting commences as early as Tuesday. True, the battle is not over yet and we still think we have a good chance to defeat this bill. The Senate will probably commence voting on gun issues this Tuesday - possibly Wednesday - and it could continue for several days. But if we do win, it’s no thanks to your Senator(s) who stabbed gun owners in the back.
