GOP Majority Leader Eric Cantor posted this photo on his Twitter.com account today. The photo shows House GOP members sitting across the table from a row of empty seats patiently awaiting Senate members. “In divided government, the only way forward is to sit down at the table. The House awaits the Senate…” Cantor tweeted. The majority Democratic Senate members refused to show up for a conference to continue talks that could end the government shutdown.

In January, Senator Dianne Feinstein will introduce a bill to ban the sale, transfer, importation and manufacturing of military-style assault weapons (like the AR-15 pictured above), handguns and shotguns that can accept high-capacity magazines.
The move comes 2 weeks after a madman went on a shooting rampage in an elementary school, killing 20 children and 6 adults.
It’s high time that the government of the United States took action to disarm the general public who have no business owning firearms. Statistics show that most violent crimes are committed by handguns in the United States — and that most of those weapons were stolen or obtained through legal loopholes at gun shows.
The bill strengthens the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban signed into law by former President Bill Clinton.
