    84 to 16!

    Why couldn't a State like Georgia get a bill like this when a full vote (100) of the U.S. Senate only drew 16 nays?

    Your mission, should you choose to accept it:

    The U.S. House of Representatives has passed its version of the spending bill and negotiators will have to decide whether to keep the gun provision. The House is usually sympathetic to gun owners.

    This message will self destruct in five seconds.

    A Bit of a False Start.

    A little further research has revealed that the U.S. Senate bill was easy to vote for because it does not do anything.

    It "defunds" confiscation efforts.

    Well, I do not think anything like that was "funded" anyway. They fund cops from all over the nation to come in and do whatever, and if they seize arms as well, I do not suppose it takes any extra allocation of money.
