Default Go the C-SPAN discussion on gun control

C-Span is having the discussion now on gun control, also they will be voting on it 1400 EST or 2:00 p.m.

I cannot watch it, listening via cable TV.

I am hearing the same crap!

Reid voted "NO"!

This was a vote on amendment S. Amendment 715 (Vote 54-46)

- Description - To protect Second Amendment rights, ensure that all individuals who should be prohibited from buying a firearm are listed in the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, and provide a responsible and consistent background check process.
