“I don’t think we’re that close to a deal…”
In an about-face, Senator Tom Coburn, who was previously said to be close to a “deal” with Sen. Charles Schumer and others on a “lite” version of registering private gun sales, now says: ““I don’t think we’re that close to a deal…” That is according to “Roll Call” on Sunday, suggesting your input is having an impact.
But is Coburn just trying to deflect you? Bloomberg News today sees it differently:
“New York Senator Chuck Schumer, a Democrat, and Republican Tom Coburn of Oklahoma have worked out 90 percent of their differences over a measure that would expand criminal background checks to most private sales of guns, according to two Senate aides who asked for anonymity to discuss the talks.”
Either way, it is time to turn up the pressure with a new round of calls to Congress saying: “No deals on background checks.”
GRNC obliterates left-wing attack on Pittenger
Barack Obama has brought his left-wing supporters to bear on gun control by turning his campaign organization into “Organizing for Action,” using $100,000 to target 13 pro-gun legislators, and mobilizing MoveOn.org for Friday’s “National Day of Action.” In New York, the left even threatened to throw the head-banging thugs of the SEIU into the fray by sending them to a gun rights rally.
In North Carolina, Obama supporters tried to run a Twitter war against Rep. Robert Pittenger (R-9, GRNC ****), but were overwhelmed by pro-gun input after GRNC issued an alert telling people to tweet “I stand with Pittenger against the Obama onslaught.”
Moreover, it seems that whatever Twitter input Obama turned out was largelyfaked. In an article in “The Hill,” Texas Rep. Steve Stockman described how low Obama supporters are willing to stoop to attack your rights:
“Obama’s anti-gun campaign is a fraud,” Stockman said. “Obama’s supporters are panicking and willing to do anything to create the appearance of popular support, even if it means trying to defraud Congress … I call upon the president to denounce this phony spam campaign.”
Gun banners on the run? Turn up the heat!
Maybe Obama’s left-wingers are desperate, maybe not. Maybe Coburn, having “felt the heat,” is now “seeing the light.” Maybe not. Whatever the case, having once again seen Obama’s deceit, you must redouble your efforts!
