GOP Senators threaten to filibuster ANY gun control bills

Written By: Bob - Mar• 26•13

It looks like there are a few Senators that the Constitution still says shall not be infringed:

Sens. Rand Paul, R-Ky., Mike Lee, R-Utah, and Ted Cruz, R-Texas, are vowing to filibuster any new restrictions on guns, according to a letter the conservative trio wrote to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

The warning comes just days after Reid announced plans to forge ahead on legislation that would expand background checks and stiffen penalties for gun trafficking after the Senate returns from a two-week Easter recess.

“We, the undersigned, intend to oppose any legislation that infringe 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 senators wrote in the letter, a copy of which was obtained by Fox News.

The battle is far from over, but this trio is shaping up as the future of the GOP, if the GOP has any future at all.

    “If Mr. Paul wants to be taken seriously, he needs to do more than pull political stunts that fire up impressionable libertarian kids in college dorms.” John McCain

    Maybe they are following John’s advice?

    The days of the HW’s, W’s, McCain, & Romney GOP are over or the GOP will be over if they’re not already, IMHO!

    Death before slavery!

    This is great news, but I suspect they’re planning to use this as cover for their less-than-sterling votes on amnesty coming up.
