For the two years that Democrats control the House of Representatives, here's what we can expect...

... Since no controversial legislation proposed in the House by Democrats can be effectively voted down IN the House by minority Republicans, and since such legislation will not get by the Republican-controlled Senate, we can expect that the House Democrats will propose legislation that even more MODERATE House Democrats would normally not support, but WILL vote to support at this point in time, knowing that its only purpose is to try to generate enthusiasm in the Democratic base voter.

In other words, House Democrats will pull out all the stops, playing to the great unwashed Dem voters, fully knowing that the Senate will bury the crazy stuff and protect the nation!

But Republicans can use the divided Congress as well. Republicans in the Senate can propose legislation which would increase American freedoms, legislation that Democrats SHOULD vote for, but will NOT vote for, being that Dems are the non-Constitutional party of strong federal governmental control, the party of regulations and repressions. Senate Republicans can show the American people how Republicans might strengthen their Constitutional rights, if it weren't for Democratic intransigence.

For example, Senator John Cornyn has just proposed legislation in the Senate which increases 2nd Amendment protections for Americans:

Cornyn offers 'reciprocity' for 17 million concealed carry permit holders

The ranks of gun owners with approved concealed carry permits has swollen to 17 million, and new legislation offered in the Senate Thursday would make it easier for them to carry their weapons across state lines.

Bolstered by a larger pro-gun caucus in the Senate, Texas Republican Sen. John Cornyn is introducing his latest version of the Constitutional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act.

"This bill focuses on two of our country’s most fundamental constitutional protections -- the Second Amendment’s right of citizens to keep and bear arms and the Tenth Amendment’s right of states to make laws best-suited for their residents," said Cornyn, a top Senate GOP leader.

The current patchwork of state and local gun laws is confusing and can cause the most conscientious gun owner to unknowingly run afoul of the law when they are traveling or temporarily living away from home," said Chris W. Cox, executive director of the NRA-ILA.

"Law-abiding citizens should be able to exercise their fundamental right to self-defense while traveling across state lines. We thank Senator Cornyn for his leadership on this important issue," Cox added.

Such sensible legislation would not pass the currently Dem-controlled House, but it stands as a beacon of freedom, waiting for when America once again wrests control of the House from the Democrats...
