If they can't get their way, they just throw a tantrum like a little kid.

Holy smokes, people voted for these idiots?

    Hmmmm- - - - -it's entirely possible these idiots are the very best qualified examples of their constituency. There have to be a huge number of low-information voters involved in electing them- - - - -repeatedly! I guess it really is possible to fool a huge number of the people all of the time!

    Nothing like pitching a fit like a spoiled rotten kid if ya don't get your way! They all ought to be taken behind the woodshed and introduced to 'the board of education' or a good hickory switch or a nice leather belt.

    Someone needs to tell them that gun control is using both hands and hitting the target. What a bunch of anus chapeaus! :roll2:

    I'm actually glad they're doing this. It might motivate some folks to vote them out of office, if eligible...

    I would be all for this IF! and only if, they would make the no fly list legit. It's an unconstitutional nightmare the way it is now. There's no due process involved. Somebody issues a complaint on you and some judge puts you on it. Then once you are on it there is no way of getting off. How can this be in the great United States of America? This needs attention. This makes no sense. People get off the terror watch list but can't get off the no fly list? In fact, Some people go back in forth on and off the Terror list. If there's a list for terror I would rather see people that are on it never get off. But some people have gotten put on the no fly list for nothing except an angry ex wife filed charges on a man. Again, no due process, just arbitrarily stuck on it. And also, the terror watch list needs to be set up the same way with a similar set of rules and requiring due process to get on and off.

    Consider that these same representatives are basically telling their constituents that they need to also perform acts of disobedience.

    Rule of law... yep!

    Yeah, morons like this are what makes things like the No Fly List what it is. They want to make the rules up as they go along with no regard for our Constitutional rights.

    Nothing has changed in 50 years. Back in the 60's these young commie students found they could get their way by occupying the administration building.....now it's the halls of Congress.

    And I bet they're P.O.ed that they can't light up a doobie like they did 50 years ago when they were having a sit-in protest! They're proof positive that drugs are bad! :roll2:

    If it was our people doing it for the right reasons, I am betting that we would find their actions courageous. But whatever. Let them sit. Given, most people on the no fly list most likely did something to earn that status, but people (scum and all) are supposed to have rights. They want to take away people's rights! I don't think they understand that. Because they don't-- yes they are idiots and should be voted out of office. But still...

    Jerm, they don't have the votes to pass that mess. So the Democrats are pitching a hissy fit in an attempt to get what they want. They all seem to be all for democracy only as long as things go their way. And pitch a fit when they don't get their way. And those secret lists they want are as unAmerican as it gets. Star Chamber and Minority Report stuff. Nope, not in America.

    And it was a Muslim terrorist that murdered the people. The rifle and pistol he used were the tools he used to accomplish that. How about doing something about Muslim terrorists and leave us the guns to defend ourselves from them? Makes more sense, to me.

    It's such a simple concept. When a drunk driver wipes out a family, we don't blame the car and try to ban it; we blame the drunk driver and prosecute him as the law allows.

    My representative is one of them. UNFORTUNATELY, I live about 3 miles too far south and am in a gerrymandered district :tissue: so NO, I didn't vote for her (Terri Sewell) but hers was an uncontested election. Due to the way this district is drawn, it includes the vast majority of liberal demoncraps in the state :cuss:

    Thing is, where were the gun grabbers before Orlando and San B.? If they were so committed to their cause why now?

    Now because they have another tragic act of Islamic Terrorism to exploit and hit hard while folks are still in shock and may make knee-jerk decisions to feel they are "Doing Something"................AG said on TV we need to conquer them with love..................get real love is gonna stop ISIS?

    Grand scheme is to divert attention away from the real issue and get more gun control instead of Islamic terrorist control.

    Far as the demonstration on the house floor............go ahead, but carry it outside and do not disrupt house business where rules are in place because you didn't get your way after a democratic vote, the way things are supposed to work in our country.

    Happened back in 2008 on the other side of the aisle. A Republican sponsored bill on expansion of oil drilling (remember "drill baby drill!"?) and oil refineries...Dems didn't let the bill come to the floor. They had the votes to quash the bill, but didn't care to do it in such a public fashion, so they voted to recess instead of hear the bill. At that time the Dems got up, packed their stuff and left the building...but not before instructing the Sargent at Arms to remove any members of the media that hadn't already done so, as well as shutting down the live-feed (CSPAN?) video so that whatever was actually discussed would never be seen by any more than those who could assemble in the viewing gallery.
    "Bipartisan" usually means that a bigger than normal deception is happening.

    Want to talk about irony! Those Democrat aides sent out to get food went to a place you'd never guess. The Democrats have demonized them for a long time because of their stand on several things.

    The aides brought in fast food from............................

    That's some thick irony there!
