    Ha, McCain voted for the Clinton gun ban, and like Trump, has had a longer history of being antigun.... I'd hardly say he was "solidly pro-gun throughout (his) career." You probably were only referring to Graham and Paul?

    Yes, I actually believe they have a Stop Trump Agenda first.

    Even if they do not, the epublicans still do not have enough votes to stop a Democrat filibuster on this or any other upcoming legislation.

    Dems have already said they will block it.

    Im not going to support a law that opens the door to federal regulation (read: infringement) of my carry rights. We need less federal government, not more.

    Every previous President ,both democrat and republican signed a letter of support to congress when Clinton signed the gun ban bill.

    Graham, and Paul have stated that they will not support much if any Of Trumps Agenda. That bring sit down to 49-51.

    This doesn't include the usual RINO suspects in the Senate.

    Not only do the Republicans not have the votes to stop a democrat filibuster, they don't even have the votes to pass a simple majority.
    I think Paul would vote for it in its current form.

    He was saying Presidents, not necessarily sitting Senators and Congressmen. For example, Reagan supported the ban, although he didnt hold any office at the time.

    That's one.

    We are still short for a Majority vote and well short of the 60 votes needed to end the Democrat filibuster.

    This, like most if not all of Trumps agenda will be shot down by the RINO's in the Senate.
