"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."

That list of senators looks like, to quote one of my favorite talkshow hosts, Mark Levin, a conga line of coconuts.

Yes, I quick scan would seem to indicate they were all democratic coconuts, wouldn't it?

Joe Manchin is conspicuous by his absence. He fully supports Obama's gun-grabbing, but still tries to portray himself to his W.Va. constituents as a pro-2A kind of outdoorsy guy.

Which Dems did not vote for it?

Though it is painful to admit a Dem doing right, maybe call them/e-mail them and thank them? And certainly the Repub Senators should be thanked. We're fast to complain at times - but that's not how you train a puppy. A little praise is also needed.

I wouldn't assume they didn't vote because they were 'doing right'. They may have been absent from the vote.

They probably didn't vote because they didn't want to show their true colors, e.g., Manchin, not because they actually opposed the measure.

Only one Senator was absent (or pulled a Obama and voted present.) 99 votes out of 100.
