Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) on Thursday joined a group of Republicans threatening to filibuster gun control legislation in the Senate.
We, the undersigned, intend to oppose any legislation that would infringe on the American peoples constitutional right to bear arms, or on their ability to exercise this right without being subjected to government surveillance, he wrote in a statement on his website.

LOL they can go a looooong time.
D*mn right. The fags can marry their bungholes. I can have my guns. I guess that’s about it.
Heh. Republican senators, step right up, and get your notoriety here. They stand much better chances of reelection.
The queer crowd is upset about this and spamming all over Rubio’s Facebook page.
Crist probably wouldn’t do this, nor would Trey Grayson of Kentucky have, nor Dewhurst, nor Bob Bennett of Utah.
Filibuster is fine...just make sure you get enuff dumble support to defeat it...the more soundly the better.
Rolling filabuster. It was done in ‘93 to kill Clinton’s stimulus bill.
Well, Mr. Rubio and group, you had best filibuster it until the senate is no longer in session, and when it returns you had best do it again.
Otherwise there is no purpose to your existence whatsoever.
The Democrat party has ceased to be,
They wish total control over you and me.
Socialists and Communists they have become,
Destroy America, their rule number one ,
Cutting the military their ultimate goal,
Along with selling their devilish soul.
Drones in the sky in the land of the free,
So they can keep tabs on you and me.
The Second Amendment they HATE you see,
Because it means freedom for you and me.
They tap our phones and e-mail too,
They are afraid of what we can do.
They want my guns, they are saying to me,
Not as long as I breath and able to see.
I took my oath and went to Nam,
They WILL NOT get guns from this old man !
Many have died for the red white and blue,
If the need arises, I will too.
Guns from my hands they will have to pry,
MOLON LABE is the battle cry !!!!!!
I can think of few more worthwhile ways to depart this rock.
I wonder how many of the posts there are the paid obot brigade? I'd bet quite a few, the left excels at that kind of stuff.
Welcome to the party! Better late than never! Now lets hear from the Blue Dogs!
Frankly, I don’t care to live if I no longer have the means to defend myself or my wife. Personal firearm possession gives me that ability. I do not wish to ever become a punching bag for whatever thug happens to break into my home. I don’t believe in surrender under any terms.
Otherwise there is no purpose to your existence whatsoever.”
I beleive you are mistaken. Much of the power of the left is their supposed moral superiority. The fillibuster is a way to break through that and show that they are not moraly superior.
This can be stopped in the house as well as the senate. The 300 Spartans did not die in vain. They gave time to organize the Greek defenses.
All opposition is valuable.
Personally, I believe a filibuster in the Senate is more likely to succeed than a floor vote in the House.
If Boehner allows the measure to come to the floor, every Democrat will vote for it. And 15-20 squishy, lily-livered RINOs will follow.
Accordingly, if the measure goes to the House, we have to depend on Boehner...
