    Obama chastises Senate over failed gun reform amendment


    [​IMG]

    FILE - In this April 10, 2013 file photo, Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, left, and Republican Sen. Patrick Toomey of Pennsylvania, right, announce that they have reached a bipartisan deal on expanding background checks to more gun buyers, at the Capitol in Washington. A bipartisan gun control deal by Toomey and Manchin inspired Senate conservatives to drop their filibuster plans, even though many Republicans who allowed the legislation to advance said they were unlikely to vote for its passage in the end.

    The Senate on Wednesday rejected a bipartisan amendment that would have expanded background checks on gun purchases, a blow to advocates calling for more strict firearm laws after the mass shootings in Newtown, Conn., late last year.
    The measure, the product of intense negotiations between Pennsylvania Republican Sen. Pat Toomey and West Virginia Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin, would have extended background check requirements on gun owners. It needed 60 votes to pass, but failed 54-46.

    Black folks need to go out in droves and purchase guns. That will make them white folks think twice.

    And here's something to prove your point DrSeide, thanks for contributing:

    Gun control backers: Senate defeat won't stop us

    WASHINGTON (AP) — One day after the demise of gun controllegislation, Senate supporters of the measure vowed to try again, while a leading opponent accused President Barack Obama of taking the "low road" when he harshly criticized lawmakers who voted against key provisions.

    what a funny headline, "Obama chastises senate" How did he do that? Don't tell me he gave them a great speech. Politics in this country can be quite comical at times.

    He gave them what we call a tongue lashing, if you didn't see or hear it, then no wonder you are confused.

    Oh ok, if that's the case I am sure the members of the senate have totally learned their lessons now. Way to go Mr President.
