Rand Paul Threatens to Reprise Filibuster on Guns, Ted Cruz and Mike Lee to Join

Sens. Rand Paul, Ted Cruz and Mike Lee are threatening to filibuster gun-control legislation, according to a letter they plan to hand-deliver to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s office on Tuesday. [Politico]

AS USUAL, the conservative gun extremists didn’t use the word “filibuster” in their letter.

“We will oppose the motion to proceed to any legislation that will serve as a vehicle for any additional gun restrictions,” the three conservatives wrote in a copy of the signed letter obtained by POLITICO.

These men actually believe the Second Amendment entitles American citizens in the 21st century to any gun, any amount of ammunition, any magazine size, to whatever degree a person wants.

This is the most liberal interpretation that could possibly be used on the Second Amendment, which states no such thing.

    Now you’ve gone and upset them, twice: attaching the word “liberal” in describing their position, and calling that position an “interpretation,” because they’re certain they are just telling us what the Constitution really says, not “interpreting” it.

    If there was no Senate this country would be a much better place. If the legislative branch of the federal government consisted of just the House, cons from small sparsely populated states wouldn’t be able to block and obstruct what the country as a whole wanted.
