From Gun Owners of America...

Senator Lee to Offer Amendment Tonight to Ban Most Gun Control in the Senate

Contact your Senators
We realize it's short notice, but we wanted to alert you that, later tonight, Senator Mike Lee of Utah intends to offer an amendment to the budget resolution that would prohibit any gun control legislation which does not have 2/3 vote in the Senate.

We know, we know. We would prefer to prohibit any and all gun control, even if it had 100 votes.

But if the Lee amendment is passed, the practical effect will be that gun control can never again pass the Senate.

Given the Armageddon-like fight which we are now engaged in in the Senate, achieving a gun-control peace for the rest of our lifetimes would be a good thing.

ACTION: Contact your Senators. Ask them to vote for the Lee amendment to require 2/3 vote for the Senate to impose any gun control.

The ammendment will never make it to the floor, it will be tabled (sent to committee to die) or just shot down.

No one wants flack on the approptations budget for the rest of this fiscal year.

Nice thought but a stupid idea that just brings more attention to the gun control issue.

Lol, what the heck, crazier things have happened. It's like getting into a free raffle for a really cool prize.

They should submit a bill that reads "the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed".
