They Had To Pass It To See What’s In It, I Guess

Here are the 14 GOP senators who voted to advance gun safety bill
The Senate on Tuesday broke through nearly 30 years of stalemate on gun control legislation by voting 64 to 34 to advance an 80-page gun safety bill to respond to the mass shootings in Buffalo, N.Y., and Uvalde, Texas, that left 31 people dead, including 19 school children.

Judging from what I’ve seen in the news and blogs today, an awful lot of folks didn’t even know the bill text dropped until this morning.


I learned of the bill text last night. Apparently about the time they were voting.

I didn’t complete my bill analysis until 10AM this morning, a good twelve hours after they voted on it. And I’m not particularly slow: My reading speed has been clocked in excess of 1600 words per minute. And I concentrated on Title II of the bill.

Tell me these fourteen fuckheaded gang-rapers read, analyzed, and comprehended what they voted on at near light speed.

Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas)
Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.)
Sen. Thom Tillis (R-N.C.)
Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine)
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.)
Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-La.)
Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.)
Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.)
Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah)
Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio)
Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.)
Sen. Joni Ernst (R-Iowa)
Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska)
Sen. Todd Young (R-Ind.)

The Hill expressed surprise that some, Young in particular, supported this bill. But looking at this list, my thought is more, “Figures.”

  1. Being from NC, I have some insight into our two dickless wonders:

    Burr is retiring. I’ve heard that it has something to do with “retire or face investigation”, but that’s probably overstated.

    Tillis, on the other hand, has always been a backstabbing turd. The only way we could get him to vote pro-2A while he was a state senator was to roast him so thoroughly that the meat was about to fall off the bone. He got elected because the state Republican party couldn’t find anyone better, like Mickey Mouse, to run. And in the interest of full transparency, yes, I did vote for him, both because the Democrat was far worse and because I figured we could keep him voting correctly. Nope. Apparently, US senators are above listening to their constituents/worrying about reelection when it’s 4 1/2 years in the future.

    Our only choices now to relieve ourselves of this turd in our punch bowel are to find someone who can successfully primary him (unfortunately unlikely) or we all stay home next election/vote for the Democrat next time (probably would work but cutting our nose off to spite our face).
