Senate GOP Undermines RandSubmitted by Ron Paul for Pr... on Thu, 05/26/2011 - 14:16
As Rand Paul takes an historic stand against extending the misnamed "Patriot" Act for another four years, intense grassroots pressure from C4L members has helped push Senate Democrats to agree to vote on several of Senator Paul's amendments, including his amendment to protect law-abiding gun owners.
However, sources on the Hill have informed me that the ones who should be standing up for every American's Second Amendment rights and supporting Senator Paul - the Senate GOP leadership - are not only holding up his amendment to protect gun owners but are actively lobbying fellow Republicans to vote against it.
It's up to us to ensure they hear what outraged patriots nationwide think about their actions.
Contact Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell at (202) 224-2541 and Senate Minority Whip Jon Kyl at (202) 224-4521 right away.
Tell them to show some backbone by joining Senator Paul's historic stand to protect law-abiding gun owners from the federal government's prying eyes. Demand they stop blocking his essential amendment.
Rand is refusing to back down despite overwhelming pressure, and he needs us to stand with him now.
Please, call Senators McConnell and Kyl right away!
