Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Pledge To Defeat Anti - Second Amendment Bill in Senate
March 26, 2013
Senators Rand Paul and Ted Cruz are preparing to do battle over legislation moving through Congress to further erode the Second Amendment and disarm the American people.
In a letter addressed to Senate Majority leader Harry Reid, a Nevada Democrat, Paul and Cruz said they will oppose “any legislation that would infringe on the American people’s constitutional right to bear arms, or on their ability toe exercise this right without being subjected to government surveillance.”
Moreover, they will use cloture – forcing a time limit on the consideration of legislation – on “any legislation that will serve as a vehicle for any additional gun restrictions.”
