“Dirty Harry” Moves To Shut Out Pro-Gun Rand Paul Amendment

Remember the sleazy tactics used by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to pass ObamaCare? The secret meetings? The refusal to let the American people see the language? The “amendment tree” used to block Republicans from offering amendments on the floor? The use of a House-passed bill as a vehicle to circumvent Senate procedures?

Well, all of that sleaziness is back in connection with efforts to extend three anti-gun provisions of post-9/11 legislation.

In order to circumvent Kentucky Senator Rand Paul’s pro-gun amendment to the bill, Reid has now scuttled the Senate version of the 9/11 extension, tacked everything onto a motion to concur with a House-passed small business bill, and employed a procedure to lock out ALL Republican amendments, including Paul’s pro-gun amendment.

Reid has completely lost his mind.

Nevada is one state that can recall their senator. Although no senator has ever been recalled I believe Reid can be that ONE exception. Someone in Nevada look into this. He is just at the beginning of his term and has already betrayed the people numerous times. I don't think we can live with him until 2016. It could take as little as 20% of voting signatures to ditch this bastard. Come on people! This is SO important and DOABLE.

What are realistic options to fight here? Rand is a man fighting the tidal wave of sewage on his own.

His mind has been gone a long time

Ever see his "paying taxes is voluntary" interview?

I wonder if his IQ ever made it up to 100.
