It's a sad day as we go on hoping it will go away - The Senate confirmed this week, by a vote of 62-35, a gun banner that stays up at night thinking of ways to impose more gun control upon American citizens.
Harold Koh is that gun grabber, and he was confirmed yesterday to be the Legal Adviser at the State Department.
Wednesday, Senate Republicans attempted to kill the Koh nomination with a filibuster -- until eight of them crossed the aisle to help Democrats confirm Koh.
The back-stabbing Senators are: Lamar Alexander (R-TN), Susan Collins (R-ME), Judd Gregg (R-NH), Orrin Hatch (R-UT), Richard Lugar (R-IN), Mel Martinez (R-FL), Olympia Snowe (R-ME) and George Voinovich (R-OH).
Once the filibuster was thwarted, Koh's nomination passed easily. The vote on final passage can be viewed at: http://tinyurl.com/m4m2f5
Here is the Alaska Vote, as I bet you could already guess!
Begich (D-AK), Yea
Murkowski (R-AK), Nay
But, this is America and the constitution gives me the right for my guns…We already won that debate. I hate to tell you this but the person that gave the deciding vote retired and his seat is now open!
Justice David Souter was given a thumbs up by Barrack Obama and that vote would have went the other way if Souter was a Supreme Court Justice!
I strongly recommend you and your family get involved with your state Rep (Dem or Rep)...Heck we can email them now. You can bet if Souter becomes a Supreme Court Justice the 2nd amendment will come up again and we will come out on the loosing end...Learn about these people.
This is really more serious then you may believe - Buy by the time the damage is done we will be standing around saying...What the heck happened? They can’t do that - But they did! And all of the "they can have them from my cold dead fingers" as you reach for another beer - It will be already done before you can say we shouldn’t have “voted for change" we should have voted for better (my opinion).
Please, this is just a call to pass it on and write your reps. The reason I started this post this is not to start a big debate on politics...It just a outcry to become involved! England, Germany, and Australia though “it can't happen, no way, not us, they can't do it! Sound familiar?
Let's try to hold back the anti gun tide...It is rising and we need to get it in check before the levy breaks!
