Rand Paul and Ted Cruz are rapidly becoming the dynamic duo of the Senate. Cruz backed Paul’s 13 hour filibuster against drone strikes on Americans. Now Rand Paul and Ted Cruz are promising to filibuster any Gun Control bill.
Sens. Rand Paul, Ted Cruz and Mike Lee are threatening to filibuster gun-control legislation, according to a letter they plan to hand-deliver to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s office on Tuesday.
“We will oppose the motion to proceed to any legislation that will serve as a vehicle for any additional gun restrictions,” the three conservatives wrote in a copy of the signed letter obtained by POLITICO.
Though they don’t use the word “filibuster” in the letter, the conservatives are leaving no doubt that they would filibuster on an initial procedural question — the motion to proceed.
Rand Paul and Ted Cruz are true Patriots standing up for the Civil Rights of Americans. Without Guns, we lose our freedoms and our property.
Like many on the Right, I am very disillusioned with the Republican party. You have spineless Establishment and a stubborn base both of whom are hampering the Party’s ability to win elections. The one issue keeping me from defecting to the Libertarians, who I am ideologically more in line with is Gun Rights. If the GOP caves on Guns, I will no longer automatically vote for them. They would have to earn my vote. I am not alone in this sentiment.
