Please make viral: Republicans Set To Cave on Guns

PLEASE, make this go viral. We MUST CALL or EMAIL our Senators. This may happen as early as THURSDAY MORNING!

(202) 224-3121

Several of the Republicans are using the Manchin-Toomey compromise plan as an excuse to cave on the gun filibuster. They claim that Senators Lee, Cruz, and Paul are running ahead of the conference in their insistence on a filibuster.

What they fail to see is that the cloture vote is the vote to stop the gun legislation from passage.

And we are surprised because....?

They are not like minded people. Why wouldn't they help enslave the american people as they've been paid to do?

A talking filibuster IS a way of debating

With the Senate firmly in the hands of the Democrats, and possibly already tilted toward the gun grabbers, a fillibuster is the only way the minority can have a voice in the debate. Otherwise, the bill will go from being filed on Tuesday night to being voted on Thursday without any significant debate.

If Paul, Cruz, and Lee can talk and bring up good logical arguments for the anti-gun-control position, then they will have advanced the debate. If they read from the phone book, then they are just delaying the inevitable. I think everyone in the country saw how powerful the talking fillibuster could be when Rand Paul stopped a rubber-stamp vote by bringing up powerful arguments against the government's assertion that the President can kill Americans without due process.

I say Paul, Cruz, and Lee should go forward with their fillibuster as long as there is a bill curtailing ANY 2nd Amendment rights, even the supposedly innoctuous background checks that apparently has widespread support.

The gun grabbers don't want these men to speak because they FEAR the argument. The grabbers know their position is logically weak and cannot stand up to common sense scrutiny, so they must find a way to PREVENT debate at all costs. It wouldn't surprise me if McConnel ditched Paul, Cruz, and Lee at the last minute.

No time for complacency

We should be hammering the issue of "prohibited persons".

People supporting universal background checks have no idea
(mostly) that tens of millions of people who are basically
non-violent and law abiding are going to be either denied
the right to possession of any firearm or ammunition or
be considered a felon if they do. 18 USC § 922(g) & (n)

Especially people from states with legal or decriminalized
marijuana should be pushing this. How can a politician
support saying that cannabis users are not criminals and
at the same time say that they are felons if they exercise
their 2nd Amendment rights?

Well, it's pretty easy, actually - if we never call them on their
hypocrisy.

Vote for cloture is a vote for gun confiscation

Can't be made any more plain. Republicans don't control the senate. If the filibuster is broken, the senate will pass a draconian bill. And the "mainstream" statist RINOs want to disarm America.

Take back the GOP and Restore America Now.
