SENATE FLOOR: Paul Amendments Tabled

UPDATE:

Firearm Records Amendment was tabled by a vote of 85 - 10 and the Burden-Shifting Suspicious Activity Report Amendment was tabled by a vote of 91 - 4. Only 41 votes were needed to table the amendments.

Two of Rand Paul's Patriot Act Amendments -- Amendment 363 & Amendment 365 -- will be brought for a vote later today (although not the Paul-Leahy Amendment).

• Firearm Records Amendment (Amendment 363): Clarifies that the authority to obtain info under the USA PATRIOT Act does not include authority to obtain certain firearm records. Supported by Gun Owners of America.

• Burden-Shifting Suspicious Activity Report Amendment (Amendment 365): Requires law enforcement to initiate requests for suspicious activity reports (SARs). Shifts the burden for generating suspicious activity reports to law enforcement, requiring FBI/other law enforcement to initiate requests for SARs, rather than requiring financial institutions to automatically generate these reports. Supported by Kentucky Bankers Association and National Association of Federal Credit Union

Time man, I had some great progress with the Liberals on HuffPost. We're making waves, and Paul won a lot of respect for this.

At the very least, he can STILL delay it so parts are actually expired for a day. He has some sort of 30 hour debate window he can call.

GO RAND!

Thanks, you're right. Just

Thanks, you're right. Just very frustrating naturally. It seems at times some of the most obvious unconstitutional laws are the easiest past.

That would

be a great clip to save to weave into a future videos, a sort of highlights video of Rand Paul's valiant fight against the Patriot Act. Capture this moment in history so as to make it vivid and real for the masses.
