Please keep this Second Amendment related so it doesn't get canned,

NO POLITICS :mad:

Rand is working hard to protect the Constitution.

I'm liking him a lot more these days. Once he beats down gun control, perhaps he can start digging into DHS to find out just why they need so much military hardware.

I for one, am glad to see that we have three MEN that will make the effort to stop this nonsense. I pray they are successful.

I agree. Since I cannot vote for him, I'll support with $.
Yup. The man needs our support. My Dad and I have been sending donations to Sheriff Joe Arpio, from California, for years with a note "Please run for President or California Governor".

I've seen a lot of statements from the leftist-antis saying that 90% of the people support increased gun restrictions/controls. I think that if this were really the case, that they wouldn't have such a hard time getting something like an enhanced background check bill through the Senate. Regardless, I am pleased that he will block the legislation. These sorts of things need to be stopped here and now. The line in the sand must be drawn. The antis are not even hiding their intent of this being just the first step of their long laundry list ultimately ending in a complete ban and confiscation of civilian firearms. This can not be allowed to happen. There is the an old saying about how to eat an elephant and the answer being one bite at a time. In this case, they can't even be allowed to pick up their forks.

I have heard they are now pushing an awb as an Amendment.:aargh4::buttkick:
No, they aren't "NOW" pushing the AWB as an amendment. That is the only way it can be added, because it will not be brought to the floor as a bill on it's own...

A huge Texas thank you to Senators Paul, Cruz and Lee for taking this fight to the other side rather than waiting for it to come to them. Godspeed and good luck gentlemen. Let your voices be heard.

Honestly, I have to wonder if that isn't in some ways worse. My concern is that it is somehow slipped through on something else and doesn't get noticed or objected to.

Dear Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid,

We, the undersigned, intend to oppose any legislation that would oppose on the American people's constitutional right to bear arms, or on their ability to exercise this right without being subjected to government surveillance.

The Second Amendment to the Constitution protects citizens' right to self-defense. It speaks to history's lesson that government cannot be in all places at all times, and history's warning about the oppression of a government that tries....

They are doing a good job and getting some real momentum in turning the tide of the battle. Why stop at the sludge flowing out of the people/gun controller agenda? Could it be we take the fight to some existing gun restrictions?

Personally, I applaud Rand Paul for his support of not only the 2nd Amendment, but because he has the common sense to realize that the first line of protection is us. Let's face it, we live in volatile world where there are people, foreign and domestic, professional and not, who are out to harm us. It could be an invading army, a terrorist group, or some thug punk who wants my collection of vintage Motown records. They are all threats. He gets that and he is willing to do what is right, even if it means sticking his neck out there.

With all the tweaks and butchering of the filibuster/cloture rules over the past few years, I'm hoping the hirelings know full well how far they can push all of this.

Bummer that a simple two-thirds of the body isn't still required to push cloture and terminate filibuster.

That is, after all, how it succeeded in '94.
Which is why I have said that we have to watch EVERYTHING... Just like they added federal park carry to the "Credit Card Bill of Rights."

And, as Pelosi said in another posted thread link:

...that if a ban on so-called assault weapons does not pass, it would create an even greater impetus for Congress to approve strong legislation on universal background checks. She added that members voted for the ban that passed in 1994 knowing it would cost them their seats, but that they said later it was worth it if it saves lives.

They use magician's tricks of misdirection to get us to pay attention to the hand that is moving... and not the hand with the coin in it. (Coin here is meant both literally and figuratively, they do like their "perks" these "representatives...")
