There were four amendments proposed related to gun purchases for those on terror watch lists, and none passed, which the liberal media lamented:
- NBC News included a tweet by Hillary Clinton, disparaging the Senate votes, but none from Second Amendment supporters. NBC News only mentioned “due process” twice, and it was quoting GOP Senator Chuck Grassley and NRA director Chris Cox.
- ABC News quoted Democratic Senator Chris Murphy, but none of from the Right, and did not mention the issues regarding due process and constitutional right to bear arms.
- The Washington Post parroted the Obama administration line of “assault weapons,” without defining the liberal myth of what an assault weapon is.
- A piece in the New York Times blamed Republicans for not being willing to “cross the National Rifle Association”.
