According to the Wall Street Journal, U. S. Senator from Louisiana Mary Landrieu will vote to move forward gun control legislation now pending in the U. S. Senate.

Reid Sets Gun-Bill Vote for Thursday

Two conservative Democrats who are up for re-election in 2014 held back from immediately joining the GOP effort to stop the Senate from voting on the gun-control bill.

“This is an issue that we should debate,” said Sen. Mary Landrieu (D., La.). The Louisiana Democrat said she plans to wait until she sees the final language of any bipartisan deal on background checks before deciding whether she will support it.

Sen. Mark Pryor (D., Ark.) told reporters that he wanted to “see how this develops” before deciding whether to join the Republican filibuster. “I know that many senators are working to try to get to some sort of compromise,” he said.

    There should be no question, much less a debate, on this issue. That Landrieu and Pryor are even considering which way they will go on this is indicative of their disregard for the Constitution and its tenets. Well, what do I expect from the dark side of the aisle? That both of these buffoons are up for re-election in 2014 says volumes about their stances on the gun issue, and they should not occupy the halls of Congress after their term is done. Like so many of their colleagues, they are saying to their constiuents that they don't care what is written in the Constitution and is the law of the land, they want more control for government in the lives of the people.
    There can be no "compromising" with the dark side on anything, much less when it comes to the Constitution and the rights afforded to "We the People" under the founding papers of this nation. Vote 'em out.

    No, she's going to vote to let the issue come to the floor of the Senate. That's the way it's supposed to be and not at all what the headline implies. What good is the supposed "greatest deliverative body in the world" if you're afraid to discuss/debate and issue and then vote up or down? What are you gun-rights folks afraid of? That public sentiment will prevail?
