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

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.

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 which would require a 2/3 vote for the Senate to impose any gun control.

Please note the state the good senator Lee is from. Now if we could just have voted Hatch out. At least he's promised this is his last term.

Yep, Utah seems to have a good man there. Our D senator, Mark Begich is up for reelection next year - and while he's been better about voting against gun control than the other one (a RINO), it's time to get another R in there.
