Schumer Won't Schedule Gun Control Votes

He says it's because he doesn't have Republican votes, but the more immediate problem is that he doesn't have all of the Democrat votes.

Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) told colleagues on the Senate floor Wednesday that he will not immediately bring gun control measures to the floor in the wake of two mass shootings in Buffalo and Uvalde, Texas, because he doesn't expect them to muster enough Republican votes to pass.

Instead, the Democratic leader said he will wait for Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) and other members of his caucus to try to negotiate a bipartisan compromise with Republicans on a measure that has a better chance of securing 60 votes to overcome a filibuster.

Via Ed Morrissey at Hot Air, various moderate Democrats, and Democrats seeking election in November, are cool to the idea of the typical Democrat gun confiscation program.

@JakeSherman

Sinema is gathered around the GOP leadership desk on the Senate floor. shes talking to thune, cotton, Rubio, Hoeven, Todd Young.

Manu Raju
@mkraju

Jon Tester, who has had concerns about House universal background checks bill, told me he would vote YES to begin debate if Schumer set up a vote. Manchin told me he still has concerns with bill's provisions to expand background checks to private transfers. Unsure how he'd vote

The gun was legally purchased:

Tony Plohetski
@tplohetski

BREAKING: The shooter in the Robb Elementary School had legally purchased two AR platform rifles on May 17 and May 20 from a 'local federal firearms licensee,' according to a briefing given to Texas Sen. John Whitmire. One rifle was in his crashed truck at the scene. (1/3)

The other rifle was with the shooter. On May 18, the suspect bought 375 rounds of 5.56 ammunition, according to the briefing. ATF paperwork shows he likely lived with his grandmother, where she was shot. Authorities say he was wearing a plate carrier with no ballistic armor.(2/3)

Another "wearing body armor" claim turns out to be false.

The Democrats' problem is that it's their constituents who shoot people up, and the way to stop them from getting guns is to make sure that their many, many crimes result in actual criminal sentences which would preclude gun purchases -- but they are absolutely dead-set against any of their protected clientele ever being prosecuted for their crimes.

Their solution to this?

"Take guns away from law-abiding Republicans with no criminal histories."

That will not do anything to reduce crime or mass shootings, but it polls well with Democrats, by which I mean "The Media."

Feel good measures, wiping the brow saying, see we banned something or made another stupid law. There. Now we can get more control and at the next massacre add more and use it to browbeat anyone who dares go against their useless acts of feel good laws. The missing part. No mention of what effects lock downs had on kids. No mention of HollyTwit, violent movies, violent video games, music, social media etc. NONE of that is on the table, ever. Would it help? I don't know, but adding more laws, restrictions etc. Will not change a damn thing. We'll just keep piling on an inanimate object without trying something else.

Makes me so angry the way they emphasize GUN, like guns are committing the violence rather than evil or mentally ill people and as if evil people would not find another way to kill random people if guns didn't exist. How do they intend to ban matches and lighters to prevent sickos from going to arson as their preferred mass casualty tool?

Not to mention how few of the guns used in crimes are legally obtained. What good are more laws when laws aren't applied to the subsets of the population (eg gangs) that commit most violent crime?

99 The Democrats' problem is that it's their constituents who shoot people up

If you want to radically reduce "gun violence" in this country, simply enforce the existing laws forbidding felons from being in possession of a firearm, and the laws against using a firearm in the commission of a violent felony.

Mandatory prison sentences for either offense.

One of the reasons why murders have quintupled in Portland is that felons no longer worry about carrying handguns (because the DA won't prosecute), and the cops need to get permission from a sergeant to do a traffic stop (since cops profile and stuff).

Imprison felons carrying handguns, and start doing traffic stops of suspicious vehicles again, and I bet the murder rate in Portland halves almost immediately, and declines further from there.

182 115 The word gunman is probably the most elegant anti-gun propaganda. Even "righty" articles use it.

You never hear the word knifeman, clubman or macheteman.

Maybe they'll start calling them "gunslingers." It sort of fits in with "knife wielders." Prior to religion of peace fanatics and Central American gangs, machetes were for hacking at vegetation. And clubs are where you go to dance.

191 The story goes that Hannibal, years after the Second Punic War, went to hear an academic talk about military strategy and tactics. Bear in mind that H. was a lifelong soldier and leader of men; that he whipped or outmaneuvered the Romans for nearly 20 years, marching around Italy, whenever they made the mistake of letting him pick the ground; and only lost finally because Rome used his own tactics to beat Carthage.

The academic finishes, and the friend who invited Hannibal says, "Well? What do you think?"

"I've listened to some fools in my time," Hannibal murmured, "but this one really beats them all."

(Free translation, no doubt. We could use a man like Hannibal Barca again.)

351 "There was no meaningful forewarning of this crime, other than what I'm about to tell you," said Abbott. "As of this time, the only information known in advance was posted by the gunman on Facebook approximately 30 minutes before reaching the school.

"The first post was to the point of he said, 'I'm going to shoot my grandmother.' The second post was, ‘I shot my grandmother.' The third post, maybe less than 15 minutes before arriving at the school, was, 'I'm going to shoot an elementary school.'"

Last night, while watching a seemingly endless string of woke commercials, bi-racial, racial and lgbt, it occurred to me that having predominantly AA people in all Walmart and target ads is a good thing. Around here (Detroit area) young AA people are either hoping to be rap singers or basketball players. As a result we seem to have lots of tragic drive by shootings.

>>I bet not charging for crimes is common..

Prosecutors are lazy and want easy convictions and pleas.

Most gun charges in the commission of a crime carry a mandatory 15-25 year sentence.

So a defendant is going take that to court, causing the DA to have to expend resources to take it to trial.

So that's usually the first thing the DA does is drop the gun charge.

It happens in Chicago, LA, NYC, Philly, etc every day.

That said the FBI statistics show that there were 63 "mass shootings" in 2021 resulting in 103 fatalities.

Chicago statistics for 2021--797 homicides. And most were the result of black on black shootings. Did I see the lefties wee wee'd up about that. No I did not. Tell me again that "Black Lives Matter"? They do--but the left can't make political hay out of those deaths. Which is understandable considering that the Dims have run the city for the last 70 years or so.

583 Surprise--the 4500+ number of "children" killed by guns is complete bullshit. Just looked at the FBI uniform crime stats page for 2020 (latest year with complete stats).
A total of 346 persons aged 0-9 were killed (by all means) in 2020. Another 1277 were killed (by all means) in that year, for a grand total of 1623.
Rifles are 6th on the list of weapons used.

584 Hopefully enough of them understand that "gun control" is not the answer to this problem. Least of all, the idiotic things the Democrats favor to get the camel's nose under the tent.

The VA Tech shooter managed to kill 33 people with 2 handguns, so the idea that if you ban scary looking "aSsAuLt rIfLeS" you can prevent these tragedies is ridiculous on its face.

I don't know that there IS an answer, other than for law enforcement to be more engaged with all these cases where the shooters were known to be nutty and law enforcement was aware already.
