Is Senate Bill for Background Checks at Gun Shows a Joke?

If you were to believe the corrupt mainstream media, the Senate bill which would mandate
background checks at gun shows is a giant step that is a big game-changer in regard to gun control.

The problem? It probably has no chance whatsoever of passing the Republican-controlled House of Representatives, which means all of this absurd coverage of the bill is political theater generated to placate second amendment opponents.

It is also an attempt to manipulate some clueless politicians that there is a groundswell of support for background checks, when if fact Americans are far more concerned about things like the weak economy and their financial future.

Also a factor is the media don't want Americans to understand that all of this is pretty much a joke, so media continue to cover the Senate vote as if it has some meaning, when it has little importance at all.

There is no doubt this bill is highly unlikely to go anywhere in the House. About all it's doing is increasing the demand for guns and ammo, which is pushing up the price of both.

As for Senator Pat Toomey, who has foolishly come out in support of the bill, his days could be numbered, as he has formerly received an "A" rating from the NRA. The next time ratings are released by the NRA, Toomey should receive a failing grade.
