Senate Minority Leader Vows Filibuster of Gorsuch, Shows Strain of Failure
Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), the current U.S. Senate minority leader has called for members of his party to filibuster the confirmation of Judge Neil M. Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has predicted that Democrats will be unable to stop Judge Gorsuch’s confirmation. Speaking to reporters, McConnell said, “It’s almost amusing to watch our Democratic friends try to come up with some rationale for opposition.” McConnell also noted that no Supreme Court confirmation has ever been stopped by the sort of partisan filibuster Schumer is proposing.

New Yorkers Push for Handgun Rationing in Virginia
Politicians and government officials aren’t known for their willingness to accept responsibility. When faced with the blame for some social ill, they are quick to offer a scapegoat in order to avoid accountability. The tactic is often used to target gun owners or gun dealers, especially those from other states. When it comes to New York officials, their perpetual scapegoats are Virginia gun owners and gun dealers.
