Senators vow to filibuster gun grabber bill

Nice to see that some of the good guys still have spines.

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.

    i hope these guys give others the confindence to make their stand on all the issues, but without the 2nd amendment arguing the others would not be possible so this is a damn good start.

    I think we are starting to see who will be up against the socialists in 2016. God bless them!

    I gotta tell ya, it’s actually quite refreshing that the biggest movers and shakers in Congress right now are the ones not only with strongest spines, but have a strong commitment to libertarian-esque small government, too.

    Been awhile since we’ve seen that, eh?
