Senate Votes Down Anti-Gun (Universal Background Check) Bill 54-46, it did NOT get the 60 votes needed to sweep aside the conservative filibuster. 'The president said the failure of the background check bill "came down to politics."' He got it right for once!!! The genesis of this bad legislation was nothing but bold-faced lies and tyrannical exploitation. But look out -- the Party-of-the-Left are as angry as hornets as you can see... The White House even flew in a cadre of poor killed-children's parent victims to bask in the light of the President's photo-op flashbulbs. Thanks to whomever is REALLY watching out for America up there.
