Dems Vote Down Vet Amendment
Yesterday, the Democrats voted party line against an amendment offered by Senator Kent Lambert (R-Colorado Springs) that would have created an exemption to allow trained military members and veterans to own and possess standard capacity 30 round magazines.
“The Democrats refusal to treat veterans with respect and trust them to use the same magazines at home that they carried in service to this country is repulsive,” said Senator Lambert, the sponsor of the amendment. “Our service men and women are asked to defend the Constitution and themselves in battle protecting dozens of countries. They should be trusted in the very country they swore to protect.”
Senator David Balmer (R-Centennial), added, “I am proud that my Republican colleagues stood to be counted for veterans and active duty service members returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.”
Both Lambert and Balmer are veterans of the United States military.
