Mike Lee Will Push Amendment to Prevent Gun Control Measures
Just came across this action alert via Gun Owners of America:
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 a 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.
The Senate is expected to vote on a package of gun control measures next month. While it will not include the Assault Weapons Ban due to a lack of support, it will include background checks for private gun sales.
Gun Owners of America has provided a pre-written e-mail for Second Amendment supporters to send to their Senators. You can also contact yours Senators directly by calling their offices.
