Gun bill debate on the Senate floor

The "forces of good" have been successful in defeating gun control measures in the form of amendments to S. 397 (see today's earlier post) thus far, including an amendment sponsored by chief anti-gun rights advocate Frank Lautenberg of New Jersey. The Senate is currently considering Ted Kennedy's attempt to ban hollow-point ammunition, which would essentially curtail big-game hunting in the United States. Of course, "Teddy Integrity" calls such ammo "cop killer bullets," so he must be right...

Of course, as the BATF reported to Congress in 1997, "no law enforcement officer has ever been killed or even injured because an armor piercing bullet penetrated a bullet-resistant vest." Sorry, Ted.

If you've already seen "Wedding Crashers" and are in the mood for some comedy this weekend, see if you can get your hands on a copy of Kennedy's floor speech pushing his amendment. Apparently, Ted thought he was proposing an amendment to ban the NRA, because that is really all he talked about. It started about 2:55 P.M. Pop some popcorn, pull up a chair, and enjoy the drama, because it is great entertainment.
