Washington DC – -( As the push to pass gun control legislation hits its peak and individuals like NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg spend millions to sway Senate votes, Democrat Senators in red states are stepping back to say they don't take marching orders from Bloomberg.

In total, five Democrat Senators in red states are up for reelection and a visible alliance with Bloomberg or anyone as equally anti-gun will spell their political demise in 2014. (Until Sens. Tim Johnson and Jay Rockefeller announced their retirements the number of Democrat Senators in red states up for re-election in 2014 was seven.)

The five Senators are Mark Begich (D-Alaska), Mark Pryor (D-Ark.), Mary Landrieu (D-La.), Max Baucus (D-Mont.), and Kay Hagan (D-N.C.).

While all these Senators have at least become a bit more “skeptical” toward the current gun control offerings, Sen. Pryor has said flatly, “I don't take gun advice from the Mayor of NYC. I listen to Arkansans.”

NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre predicted as much during a March 24 appearance on Meet the Press when he said of Bloomberg, “He can't buy America.”

    1. Zionberg and his buddies like the prez are traitors. Deal with them accordingly in a military tribunal.

    2. @ fredy,
      sounds to me as if some gun grabber filed a false report to google. for the record, i’ve never seen anything coming from ammoland even remotely resembling “malware”. none of my suite of defenses have ever alerted on ammoland, and i’m running a “defense in depth” setup which i check and clear daily.

    3. google is saying that you siste is a malworks site and they are blocking it see if you can stop them as they must be anti gun

      1. Thanks for the heads up, yes we were are constantly under attack by anti gun hackers, we have removed the problem and are waiting on Google to give us the OK. Thank you for your patience and your support.
