Gun Control Is Coming! Senate Reaches Deal To Enforce UNIVERSAL Background Checks

on all firearm sales for gun shows and internet... effectively drying up supply with impossible barriers to enter a gun market as a seller.

They say it is not as universal as Obama's plan, but the only difference is that some families are exempted from certain regulations!!! SOUND THE ALARMS! MAYDAY MAYDAY!

So What Happened To Rands Filibuster?

Did he bail on us?

legislation is just from the committee

the filibuster will come from the floor

If enough Senators sell-out, they can avoid filibuster option

Rand's pledge to filibuster still stands. But he won't get a chance if enough Senators sell us out.

Cloture - The only procedure by which the Senate can vote to place a time limit on consideration of a bill or other matter, and thereby overcome a filibuster. Under the cloture rule (Rule XXII), the Senate may limit consideration of a pending matter to 30 additional hours, but only by vote of three-fifths of the full Senate, normally 60 votes.

As of right now, one dozen Senators have pledged to join Senator Paul’s filibuster. We need to pressure 28 other Senators to effectively stave off Senate Majority Leader Reid’s scheme by either getting them to pledge to 'Stand With Rand' on the Filibuster or at least agreeing they will oppose any Cloture motion that would prevent a potential filibuster.

They just came up with a

They just came up with a deal. It hasn't gone to the senate yet. He will filibuster there. I wouldn't be surprised to see another 13 hr filibuster, maybe from someone else though.

Senate was elected by a minority of eligible voters.

A Majority of a minority has no authority to ignore the Constitution.

In short they do not represent the people in any stretch of democratic definitions.

Congress: Selling American Rights for banker credit for 220 years. Greedy no-good tyrants.

Free includes debt-free!

This needs to be front page.
