HERE THEY COME: CONGRESS TAKES UP GUN CONTROL

Manchin, Toomey both interested in reviving gun control push

Read the rest of the article in the link above.

 

In the wake of the Charleston shooting, Sens. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) and Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) are considering ways to renew their failed push to pass meaningful gun control legislation.

In separate interviews Tuesday night at a reception before a ceremony hosted by Sandy Hook families to honor Toomey, they discussed their desire to find a new way forward.

“We want to make sure we have the votes. Pat’s going to have to, and I’ll work with him, to get some of our colleagues on the Republican side,” Manchin said, adding he hasn’t talked directly to Toomey about a revival.

Manchin specifically mentioned an effort aimed at keeping guns out of the hands of people diagnosed with mental illness.

Though the effort is in the early stages, Toomey also said he’s looking for opportunities to reintroduce something related to combating gun violence.

“What I’m trying to figure out is there something that could get the support of the 60 votes that we would need in the Senate,” Toomey said. “Joe Manchin was and is a great partner and someone I will continue to work with and I’m open to exploring what is possible.”

He added that nothing was imminent “but if we stay at it I think we’ll find a way to make progress.”

If the two senators team up to tackle any facet of gun control, it would mark a significant shift in the political debate nearly a week after nine people were killed at a Bible study group in downtown Charleston, S.C.

President Obama noted last week that once again, someone got a gun who shouldn’t have had access to it.

Clearly, having less guns does not mean you'll have less gun related deaths.  Look at these stats - South Africa has the lowest guns per person yet nearly as many gun related deaths as the USA.

Gun control is all about political control and has sweet blue buggerall to do with the distorted and concocted "facts" these lying politicians are purporting.

Another false flag used as an attempt to infringe on the Rights of Americans by globalist pukes. Only a braind dead dupe would believe anything the pseudo American Govt says. I say the first attempt will be the last attempt because the anger and disgust at the fed govt will result in no mercy or restraint by fed up Americans towards anyone in who sides with these traitors. YOYO You are on You're Own will result in bullethead lo intel types burying their uniforms and denying they were thugs.

​Nope, I am not Swiss so their laws are not my concern.  It is not "my" data but published data.  If it irks you so much why not research and post the "correct" data.  Or go ask the publication where they got their data from, maybe you could help them to correct their published data..

 To me it is not a competition in so far as the data is concerned about the Swiss, what is a fact is that people kill and not guns.
