Did anyone ever expect it to be included and get passed?

And yeah, its prob a little to soon after election day to brag about Republicans collecting wins. One great thing about them getting their ass kicked by minorities in the election is that immigration reform is much more likely.

Dems would be smart to push the sequester or some budget related shit back toward primary season. I'm sure it would mobilize a lot of voters to show up for the congressional elections.

But still, GOP won't win the house and senate in 2014.

Don't celebrate yet.

1. Contrary to popular opinion, I believe the assault weapons ban was more of a diversion than a the real agenda of the bill; since the bill originated from the events in CT (which also happens to have some of the strictest automatic weapon gun laws in the country), it goes to reason the true agenda was not to ban those guns since the law was already there in the first place.

2. What new laws passed. That's what I like to know. If the inclusion of, say for example, a mental evaluation for the legal purchase of guns is mandatory, then that is a huge victory for anti-gun liberals since 90% of americans are consider "insane" under the DSM 5 guidelines which relies more on theories and very little science.

That inclusion (and others if there are more) is in and of itself a huge attack on the second amendment.

It wouldn't even matter if automatics are available when the vast majority can't even obtain a simple handgun.


Anyone care to post the entire bill.

Since when does this have to do with Republicans or Democrats?? You see, that's been the problem since the get-go. This whole ordeal has been politicized to the max and prostituted by the media which the media in today's day and age is left-leaning. When you wrap your head around the fact it's all bullshit, that it's all meant to divide, then you'll see the real truth.

Republicans collecting wins....please, son.

It would be a pretty big surprise if the Democrats won the House in 2014.
Quote:
The battle for the House was pretty even in 2012, with Democrats winning slightly more of the popular vote but Republicans holding a strong 33-seat majority thanks to a map that favors their party.
And it will be very difficult for Democrats to win back the majority in 2014, because the presidentís party has rarely gained House seats in a midterm election.
2010 was the Tea Party year which gave a boost to Republicans on the state level. Off year election, recession going on. Lots of Republican energy compared to Democrats. 2010 was also a census year which means more Republicans were in power at the time the Congressional Districts were being redrawn. That resulting in gerrymanders that gave us maps like this.



This incredibly Red State is Pennsylvania. Obama won it by 5 points. Yet only 5 of 18 congressional districts went to Obama.

Obama won this state by 2 points.



It means Democrats will win more total votes in Congressional Elections, but will hold less seats. This writer points out it may help the Republicans hold on to the House for a decade. He points to these states where Republicans drew up the maps.

Quote:
North Carolina, which Obama lost by around 2 percentage points: 9-4 GOP
Florida, which Obama won by around half a percentage point: 17-10 GOP
Ohio, which Obama won by nearly 2 percentage points: 12-4 GOP
Virginia, which Obama won by around 3 percentage points: 8-3 GOP
Pennsylvania, which Obama won by more than 5 percentage points: 13-5 GOP*
Wisconsin, which Obama won by 6 percentage points: 5-3 GOP
Michigan, which Obama won by 8 percentage points: 9-5 GOP

This also helps explain why the Republican Majority in the house is going to be increasingly extreme. Most of them are from districts where they can only lose if someone outflanks them on the right in the primary. The general election doesn't matter as much. So they need to get right and stay right.

The Democrats win some seats back, but won't take the House, unless there is a big change.

I meant they won't win both the House and Senate. Didn't mean to imply that the Dems will win both.
