Politico: 12 GOP Senators Back Rand Paul on Gun Control Filibuster

http://www.politico.com/story/2013/04/rand-paul-gun-control-...

Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul’s threat to filibuster any new gun restrictions is gathering steam, as a dozen of his Republican colleagues have now signed onto his plan.

The Kentucky Republican and Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Mike Lee (R-Utah) first wrote to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid late last month to warn him of their intention to try to tie up the Senate if, as planned, Reid moved forward with legislation that would expand background checks and attempt to crack down on interstate gun trafficking.

Reid is expected to bring a gun-control bill to the floor as early as next week, or perhaps the following week, and Paul is renewing his vow to try to block the measure. Paul’s follow-up letter, obtained by POLITICO, bears Monday’s date and is signed by 13 Republicans, including fellow potential 2016 presidential aspirant Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) — who signed on shortly after Paul’s first threat was issued — and National Republican Senatorial Committee Chairman Jerry Moran of Kansas.

Lindsey Graham is Standing w/ Harry Reid, not Rand Paul

Lindsey Graham needs to get a clue and support his fellow republicans in the US Senate.

We all know that this jackass would prefer to be having dinner with Obama, than supporting a Republican Filibuster. Last time Graham showed his true colors by standing with Obama and old "crazy bird" McCain.

Stand with Rand Lindsey Graham or we will see to it that you are thrown out of office kicking and screaming!

Liberal media is constantly

Liberal media is constantly thumping the 97% hoax. 97% of scientists agree climate change and global warming are man's fault and must pay.

97% of Americans want universal background checks and people must pay.

The Progressers keep recycling the same hoax strategy over and over again.

Good to see this on the front page
