Not that we’re complaining, mind you, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has been taking a beating from both sides of the ideological spectrum lately. Reid, who recently earned a “B” rating from the NRA, angered many when he said that Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s sweeping assault weapon ban would not be part of the Democratic gun bill to be sent to the Senate floor. Tonight, though, Reid is proclaiming that every idea that might curb gun violence — including an assault weapon ban — deserves a vote. Why not these?

Someone tell KKOH radio that Reid wants every idea debated, not shouted down with personal attacks.

It wouldn’t be a Harry Reid tweet if it didn’t manage to blame Republicans somehow. Fortunately, Reid picked up the slack in a follow-up post.

  • JIM HILL

    Every idea to curb abortion should be debated and get a vote. Same premise. Go away Reid.

  • J. Cox

    Debate this..”…Shall not infringe…”…

    Protip Harry…ask your secret source where that little gem is located,because I bet you are clueless.

  • Rusty Shackleford

    Mandatory sentencing for violent felons. The same ones we let plea out and are friggin SHOCKED when they pull the same crap. Yesterday’s armed robbers are tomorrow’s murderers, as we’ve learned here in Baltimore. Too bad O’Malley’s goons in Annapolis shot that one down. But at least I can’t buy any more evil AR15s after October 1st!

    • GaryTheBrave

      Minimum sentence for possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime (misdemeanor or higher). Additional sentence for the USE of a firearm in a crime. All added time to be served consecutively, not concurrently. These policies are supported by the NRA.

  • Love of Country

    Ninety-nine percent of all violent felons share Reid’s politics. He must be onto something.

    • angeleyez

      BAN VIOLENT SOCK PUPPETS

  • SpinMeNot

    Every idea to prevent career politicians should be debated and then enacted.

  • ToyZebra

    Good, Harry. How about debating the effects of drugs on our youth? I don’t mean illegal drugs. I mean the kinds being passed out by the school nurse every day.

  • Chip

    How about the war on women you guys are always screaming about? Oh yeah, you are the Senator from the only state that legalized PROSTITUTION….

      Reid also belongs to a political party frequently supported by Hollywood, which has a decidedly different point-of-view on rape whenever Roman Polanski’s name comes up.

  • tops116

    Does that mean every idea about healthcare should’ve been debated? Probably so, given what a mess Obamacare is developing into it. And I’m sure we’ll be seeing a lot of Democrats starting to sweat as November 2014 nears.

  • neoface

    Every idea of getting rid of this little weasel should be considered!!!

  • Bill Board

    Every LIE Harry Reid tells should be publicly scrutinized and debated.

  • AaronHarrisinAlaska

    Is it obvious yet how scared they are? One year left. That’s how long their political life span my be. Measured in months. And if it happens, it won’t matter who Obama puts on the Supreme Court.

  • TocksNedlog

    He, of course, means “Every idea that I deem worthy of debate should receive a vote.”

  • NRPax

    Every idea to curb gun violence should be debated-Except of course the ideas that actually work because it might hurt someone’s feelings.

  • Kevin Krom

    Fine, debate them, on the condition that anything that can’t be backed up by solid facts — and not emotion — will be immediately discarded and never brought up again.

  • VerminMcCann

    Witch doctors, squirrels with lasers, gun-sniffing robotic trashcans! All ideas dammit!

  • http://twitter.com/KayGester KayGee

    I propose mandatory concealed carry for all American citizens that are also registered for the draft. Fair’s fair.

  • Right Wired

    How about term limits, Harry? Designate gang members as domestic terrorists, and use the military to rout them out?

  • bee

    harry reid used to have some balls and stand up for the people and the amendments.
    now he is just another dirty democrap looking out for himself and the money going in his pocket. its time to get him out.

  • $27789750

    Naw….let’s just filibuster. It’s more entertaining, it’s braver, we all know what the debaters are going to say anyway, SO…let’s either filibuster or preclude debate and just vote. Get on with it dear Sens.

  • GaryTheBrave

    Someone please tell Joe Schmoe that if the government supplied free guns and ammo they would be from the lowest bidder. Think about it.

  • grais

    How ’bout we enforce the laws that are already on the books?
    Discuss.

  • Garth Haycock

    Every idea, Harry? How about a mandatory sentence of death to be carried out immediately after one appeal fails to overturn the sentence?

  • mapache

    How about arresting all the illegal gun-toting gang bangers in Chicago or would that be considered racist?

  • JustLikeAnimals

    .@SenatorReid: Every idea about how to remove your old, dumb ass from the Senate should be debated.
