BREAKING, AWESOME: Background Checks Bill Goes Down In Flames As Kelly Ayotte Says She Will Vote ‘No’, Leaving Total Tally At 59-41

Apr 17, 2013 7 Comments Infidel

Excerpted from TPM: Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) said Wednesday that she will oppose a Senate deal proposing to expand background checks on the purchases of firearms known as the Manchin-Toomey admendment.

“I believe that restricting the rights of law-abiding gun owners will not prevent a deranged individual or criminal from obtaining and misusing firearms to commit violence,” she said in a statement. “While steps must be taken to improve the existing background check system, I will not support the Manchin-Toomey legislation, which I believe would place unnecessary burdens on law-abiding gun owners and allow for potential overreach by the federal government into private gun sales.”

Ayotte’s opposition leaves the amendment short of the required 60 votes for passage, unless a senator reverses their position prior to the vote on the floor at 4pm ET today

Keep the tide turning for liberty, boys and girls...they're getting desperate and their outlandishness and absurdity of false flags will continue.  Keep spreading the word of truth and freedom!
