This is indeed great news! The US Senate voted the federal bill on mandatory background checks and more, down!
This, after the president spent 4-5 days on the phone with senators. The media punched the progressive bill the strongest way they knew how. Actors, professors, and others spoke out about the poor children.
However, the bill would never have prevented the massacre in Newtown.
It was a ‘feel good’ bill.
(This is Israel, October, 2010, overlooking the Salt Sea. The Jewish people have turned the barren Israel into a garden. It’s unbelievable compared to the condition it was in when Mark Twain visited in the early 20th century).
If Israel can turn the Judean Desert into a garden of pineapple trees, we can regain our freedoms.
Just repent and pray.
“I will make rivers flow on barren heights, and springs within the valleys. I will turn the desert into pools of water, and the parched ground into springs. I will put in the desert the cedar and the acacia, the myrtle and the olive. I will set pines in the wasteland, the fir and the cypress together, so that people may see and know, may consider and understand, that the hand of the LORD has done this, that the Holy One of Israel has created it.”
(Isaiah 41:18–20 NIV)
