As expected all four of the gun control measures introduced in the wake of the mass shooting in Orlando failed in the Senate last night. All hail our NRA overlords.

Courtesy of CNN: 

Senators couldn't muster enough bipartisan support to pass a series of gun control measures Monday, the latest in a long string of failed attempts at enacting tighter curbs on firearms in the United States. 

Spurred by the worst mass shooting in U.S. history, senators from each party introduced the measures they said would have strengthened background checks and prevented suspected terrorists from obtaining weapons. 

But tough election year politics, paired with disputes over the effectiveness of each party's ideas, proved too powerful to break the longstanding partisan gridlock that's surrounded gun issues for years. 

The result was expected. A fifth option, set to be introduced and voted upon as early as Tuesday by moderate Republican Sen. Susan Collins, has generated more optimism, but still faces long odds at passage.

It's unlikely that last option will pass either.

Let's face it the NRA completely controls the Republicans in the House and the Senate and as long as they do there will never be any progress on protecting Americans from being gunned down in the streets with military style weapons.

Right about now I bet you are all wondering what Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer thinks of all of this. (I'm just kidding I doubt anybody really cares at all, but he's going to tell you anyway.)

🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻#Repost @dakotameyer0317 with @repostapp ・・・ Guns are what’s to blame in America for all the violence.  Guns kill people.  Guns are evil.  This is the Democratic Party’s battle cry.  Not terrorism, not mental health, not the result of almost eight years of this administration dividing and turning groups against each other, but the guns.  It was not the guns in San Bernardino December 2, 2015 where 12 people died and 22 were wounded and it was surely not the guns on July 16, 2015 in Chattanooga where 4 Marines and 1 Sailor died with 2 others wounded.  These were both Islamic Extremist attacks and were labeled as such by all parties including the current administration.  It was not the guns in Colorado Springs November 27, 2015 when 2 civilians and a police officer were killed and 9 more people were injured including 5 police officers.  And, it was not the guns in Charleston on July 17, 2015 when 9 people were killed in Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church.  Both of these shooting were hate crime related.  So I ask, why is the nightclub shooting approximately one week ago about guns?  The shooter was known to be of concern by the government and even sent so far as to call 911 and pledge his allegiance to ISIS prior to the shooting.  This was the worst mass shooting in our nation’s history by an Islamic terrorist and we are sitting here talking about guns when we need to talk about terrorism and mental health. Now, after a lengthy Democrat filibuster, 2 bills are to be introduced to the U.S. Senate floor for a vote.  First and most interesting, refuse gun ownership to those listed on the “terror watch list” list. Do you know the criteria for being placed on the no terror watch list? No? No one else does either.  There are 1.5 million people currently listed on the list.  The shooter in Orlando was but Secretary Clinton and her staff had him removed, well done.  The other is expanding background checks which quite honestly is mostly a political move to claim some sort of small victory for gun control if past. Continued in comments... #dakotameyer0317

As you can see Meyer is now using Bristol's Instagram account as a soapbox for his opinions which now include attacks on Hillary Clinton and the promotion of NRA propaganda.

So I guess it's safe to assume he is completely assimilated.

So much for all of that talk about honor.

    Dakota has been using meme's or linking to others articles but this one is written with no attribution to anyone. I'm thinking Bristol suggested he use a ghost writer for his fb and instagram. I've read a few David French articles hoping to find a punctuation fingerprint but we'll have to wait and see more of "Dakota's writings". Wouldn't it be hilarious to find the French's are doing double duty with the new future power couple. OR since the French's are anti Trump maybe they've hired someone new to write for the both of them. Lord knows they need the help.

      They have them laying around. If you are paranoid it would be too scary not to have them available all around the house. wearing them is bulky. How do you know which gun you will need?

      If someone appears with an assault weapon, you would feel stupid with only a loaded pistol.

We never saw him out and about with a woman, just the guys. After he left his first job and sued the company (they settled) I don't think that he has had meaningful work. So, teaming up with the Palins must be his best chance at whatever he is dreaming about in the world of politics. Just because you spout off half-baked opinions doesn't make you a politician. Ask Ben Carson and Herman Cain how that worked out.

    ACLU opposed two of the amendments because they lack due process safeguards. I agree with them.

Yesterday when Feinstein said 9 out of 10 people on the Terror Watch list can buy guns, she was admitting that for 90% of the people on that list, the evidence against them doesn't meet the standard of probable cause:

    This is just an experiment. I have never been able to post comments to this blog but have recently been forced to adopt some primitive technology that may enable it so here goes.

    One thing the Internet has achieved which is of questionable merit is to enable virtually anyone to express an opinion on any issue no matter how ill informed, malicious or self serving and enjoy a relatively wide audience. Here is just another example.

    Of course every hare-brained zealot in the world should be entitled to own a deadly weapon who's sole purpose is to cause harm, serious harm, at a safe distance. So therefore there should be no limitation or constraint on the availability of such deadly instruments. Instead we should guess who poses a threat of violence and mayhem and then
    well - do something. Lock 'em up seems to be the default option that is most popular, good for the prison industry.
