    Action Alert: GOA - Senator Lee to Offer Amendment Tonight to Ban Most Gun Control

    Senator Lee to Offer Amendment Tonight to Ban Most Gun Control in the Senate

    We realize itís short notice, but we wanted to alert you that, later tonight, Senator Mike Lee of Utah intends to offer an amendment to the budget resolution that would prohibit any gun control legislation which does not have a 2/3 vote in the Senate.

    We know, we know. We would prefer to prohibit any and all gun control, even if it had 100 votes.

    But if the Lee amendment is passed, the practical effect will be that gun control can never again pass the Senate.

    Given the Armageddon-like fight which we are now engaged in in the Senate, achieving a gun-control peace for the rest of our lifetimes would be a good thing.

    ACTION: Contact your Senators. Ask them to vote for the Lee amendment which would require a 2/3 vote for the Senate to impose any gun control.

    You may Click here to use The Action Center, or you can call your Senators since time is short. The number for the Senate is 202-224-3121.

    Please take action ASAP!

    That sounds good but who controls the Senate?

    The Democrats but that is no reason to just sit back and do nothing. There are democrats up for reelection who are concerned about getting reelected and who may vote with that in mind.

    Not likely to happen. The number of votes required to pass anything in the Senate is firmly established.

    I don't disagree, but that is how the first AWB got through. Maybe we can get lucky & sneak this through. It is certainly worth a try.

    I sent an email. It is nice that they search your Senator's addresses for you. But I know I am just wasting my time with the liberal nutjobs that got elected in my state. They would follow Harry and Joe to Hell.

    I clicked the Take Action link but I re-worded their letter a little bit:

    Please vote for the Lee amendment to the budget resolution to prohibit the Senate from approving bills like the gun ban Senator Feinstein is proposing without a 2/3 vote.

    Whether or not you are opposed to Senator Feinstein, you should be loyal to the oath you took to defend and protect the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic, and this oath should be supportive of Lee.

    I don't really care if Gun Owners are scoring this vote or not; the point is the preservation of the Constitution of the United States. You do not want your name to be on the rolls of the Congress that was in place when the United States died.
    I'm in favor of gun control -- I think every citizen should have control of a gun.

    The idea is to get their vote recorded. Then they will be on record for or against this amendment.

    Never look down on anybody, unless you're helping them up.
