This past weekend Senators John McCain and Chuck Schumer attacked the plan by a hand full of Republicans to filibuster any gun control bill that might be brought up in the Senate. Check out the below clip.
Katie Pavlich from Townhall.com wrote a great article on this topic a few weeks ago. In the article she stated that a filibuster would be a “brilliant move by Paul and Cruz. Reid has already had the ability to protect Democrats from voting on the assault weapons ban, but a filibuster on criminalization legislation would force Reid to either try and stop the talking, which will bring attention to gun control efforts of vulnerable Democrats or will be forced to allow a filibuster to continue, preventing a vote on the legislation.” You can read the entire article here.
Now if Ms. Pavlich gets it, why doesn’t a leading Republican like John McCain get it? Those dang “Wacko Birds” are at it again.
Liberty forever, freedom for all!
