Senator Reid wants to change the Senate rules to stop any further filibusters. The problem is that rule changes can't be proposed or voted on after the beginning of each 2 year Congressional session (the current session started last January).
This would pave the way for Reid, Feinstein and the rest of the freedom-haters to bully legislation through the Senate. Reid recently vowed to bring back the Universal
Background Check Gun Registration bill and if we don't speak up this could be launchpad he needs to get started. The GoA has lots of detail on this if you would like to read more.
Call your Senator today and ask them to Oppose Sen. Harry Reid's attempt to change Senate rules after the session has begun: 202-224-3121 or 1-866-937-5062 are switchboard numbers.

Bloomberg has mobilized his whiners again- this time in Nevada where the Governor has set up a hotline to poll whether or not he should veto a proposed gun control bill.
The MSM is championing the 'bravery' of this misguided venture to bully another gun control bill into law at the state level and asking readers to call and express their support . Since December 2012, no State Governor has vetoed a proposed gun control bill– why miss the opportunity to nudge Nevada into being the first to set a new precedent?
This will take less than one minute:
- Call 775-684-5670
- press #2 to ask for the veto
The United States Senate was recently only 7 votes away from surrendering your Constitutional rights over to the United Nations. In a 53-46 vote on Mach 23, 2013, the senate narrowly passed a measure that will stop the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty (for the second time- but let's ignore that presidential overreach for the moment).
The verbiage of this budget amendment (from Senate.gov) is:
To uphold Second Amendment rights and prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.
The U.N. Small Arms Treaty could have affected all private gun owners in the U.S., and intends to implement an international gun registry on all private guns and ammo. Isn't this exactly what we fought against in the UBC (Universal Background Check) legislation debate?
46 United States Senators tried to give away your Constitutional rights to a foreign power. Here are the names of the 46 senators that voted to give your rights to the U.N. These enemies of Liberty do not deserve a re-election vote because they voted for sneaky gun control:
This is a list of Senators who have proven (again) that they don't support your Second Amendment rights. There is no question- look back at the bill text. It is up to us to vote candidate into office who will protect all of your Civil Liberties. Do not vote for these enemies of Liberty in the next election- they have made it clear that they do not care about their constituents.
Memorial Day is the one day per year that every American should pause, acknowledge and appreciate the efforts and sacrifices of our veterans. These brave people have protected our way of life for 237 years and counting.
Tyrone S. Woods and Glen Doherty are two heroes I want to recognize this year. For those who don't recognize their names, these men were career US Navy Seals for 30 years who were working in Benghazi, Libya as CIA Secuirty Contractors in 2012.
On Septemebr 11, 2012, Ansar al-Sharia Islamic Terrorists attacked the US Embassy and CIA Annex in Benghazi, Libya. Woods and Doherty led efforts to fight off the hoarde 150 attackers and were able to evacuate 30 survivors from the diplomatic faciity and save their lives. They fought bravely against a much larger force for 7 hours. That's the same 7 hours that Obama's White House was informed in writing about the attack and chose to do nothing to help those Americans while they made phone and radio calls for help.
Woods and Doherty ended up killing 60 of the attacking force. Those are serious force multipliers – these two courageous men eliminated about 40% of the attackers and saved 30 Americans. Their acts of heroism and sacrifice are impressve by any measure.
President Obama's White House chose to deceive the people by claiming that the September 11 Bengazi attacks were the result of an offensive video, instead of what is clearly an act of terrorism. President Obama did not even acknowlege Benghazi as an act of terror until 14 days after the attack.
When asked about how the State Department she was responsible for handled Benghazi, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said:
Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided that they’d they go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make?
Time for another hard-hitting 2:30 from that voice of reason MCN
Yes- those are elected lawmakers from New Jersey openly stating that “we need a bill that will confiscate, confiscate, confiscate.” However the Journolists and Anti-2A politicians would have you believe that Universal Background Checks are a 'common sense' measure that will not impact law-abiding citizens.
Let's Review Facts About Universal
Background Checks Gun Registration:
The enemies of Liberty are not even trying to hide their goals. This is why it is up to every single American to actively oppose gun control laws proposed in our legislatures. This is why we must vote intelligently and actively in the critical elections ahead of us in 2014 and 2016.
Now that Gun Control got its vote and the American political process ran its course will the Senate finally move on to the economy and some issues that are actually important to voters- like the Economy, Federal Deficit or Dissatisfaction with Government? Sigh, the horizon is clear for The Second Amendment but clouds loom just past the horizon.
Although there are more threats looming ahead in the 113th Congress the first vote on amendments to s.649 was a watershed event in the latest American culture wars, but it came down to this: The People were heard when one branch of government reached too far- and leaders were present who took a stand for Liberty and refused to bow to pressure and propaganda and relentless, classless exploitation of the victims of horrific crimes.
The US political system worked once again by maintaining the balance of power just as the founding fathers envisioned. To keep it working its up to all of us to stay awake and be active participants in the political process.
Don't let the Senate vote on Toomey-Manchin end up a temporary victory for Liberty – we must stay vocal, stay involved and visit the polls in 2014. And 2016. The Civilian Disarmament coalition is planning to capitalize on the myths they have nursed along for the past 5 months– don't let it happen.
After the US Senate served its purpose as the Legislative point of the triangle of checks and balances for government last week, what's next for the Gun Control machine?
Of course the Antis are testing the waters to see if they can capitalize on the next tragedy. Bloomberg trolls are out starting rumors with the intent of portraying the Pro 2A community as ruthless and insensitive – everyone from the casual commenter on a post to the entire NRA. Make no mistake- the Civilian Disarmament coalition is unrelenting and won't stop trying to ban guns and ammunition.
Bloomberg is also working hard at misleading infographics to keep the misinformed nice and angry at the Senate for doing its job. John Richardson points out that this is propaganda at its lowest– there are outright lies being sold as truth across the Mainstream Media.
Where does the propaganda of the MSM end?
You have to hand it to Senator Cruz…he was quick to publicize Senator Reid's slip of truth while talking this week- and he managed to leverage Twitter to make sure this wasn't a secret….
This is exactly why we need to Contact our Senators and demand that they OPPOSE the Toomey-Manchin Amendment and OPPOSE S.649
The White House is launching a media campaign to push for the Obama
Gun Control Civilian Disarmament package. Gut wrenching emotional propaganda to wave the bloody shirt with a special address this week, popup windows on the whitehouse.gov site and of course a twitter bomb to make sure the slogan permeates every single inch of media possible. The tag line for this propaganda assault is “now is the time” (because if people stop and analyze this situation the so-called solution doesn't do anything to address the problem).
While you're flexing your twitter muscles you can also visit the folks at nowisthetime.co and tweet the POTUS a little love note. Remember that all tweets are captured and documented in the Library of Congress – this is a great opportunity to go on the record as a supporter of The Second Amendment. Hopefully you can tell your grandkids about this someday after an afternoon at the range together.
What a week it's been for the legislative assault on The Second Amendment. The filibuster got toppled by Senators who demonstrated that they may not be as Pro-2A as they claim to be. Strength and determination coupled with persistence is what it will take to defend the rights of law-abiding Americans- this is far from over.
The mainstream media (who were caught taking radical steps to shape public opinion less than 5 years ago) wants you and me and the rest of the world to believe their claims that 90% of America wants
Universal Expanded Gun Registration Background Checks. They want us to give up and let the Antis become the loudest voice on Captol Hill. I refuse to let this happen. It's up to everyone who cares about The Second Amendment to keep calling CongressCritters. Keep sending emails (although calls make a larger impact and are faster and easier). Tell them to Oppose the legislation listed below.
The US Senate: S.649 and the Toomey-Manchin Amendment (on the floor for debate)
In other words the proposal in the Senate could end up destroying the 2A if we don't oppose it.
The House: Toomey-Manchin Clone
Now some Antis in the House are introducing a clone of the Toomey-Manchin Amendment as a bill next week. This should have to go through committee before we see if it emerges for a vote, so it's a distraction for all practical purposes right now. The Senate is the place to focus your efforts if you want to make a difference. Contact your Senator today to demand that they oppose this legislation. Leaving a phone message will have the biggest impact.
