Let Rand Paul et al get up there and discuss the issue for 13+ hours.
Win for us.

We need to get Reid on record with a vote for gun control. He has always enjoyed the support of the NRA and that has been what has kept him in the senate. Make this moron vote and then let the voters of Nevada fire his butt.
He has not got the votes to pass any gun control but we do need him on record so he can't lie to the people of Nevada any longer. That would also be a pick up for the republicans.
He has one perfect reason to rush it: he’s an incompotent, snide, little tyrant.

"Universal background checks" = "National gun registration" by stealth.
And Schumer knows it.

Background checks are RACIST since a greater percentage of minorities have felony records. Paraphrasing Ayn Rand, use their “virtue” against them.

The Roll Call commie is giving advice to Reid on how to run the Senate. How cute. I’m sure the egomaniac Reid will send a thank you note to the insect. It’s always interesting to watch a cockroach skitter across the kitchen table.

The amendment to the background check bill should require a background check and ID card to vote in a Presidential election

RE :”The new rules allow Reid to bring any bill to the floor without having to produce a filibuster-proof majority if he gives at least two amendment votes to each party, but those rules do not prevent senators from blocking a bill from passing once its up for debate. In the case of the background check bill, using the maneuver would almost certainly be a sign that Democrats do not have the 60 votes to beat back a filibuster of the bill before it reaches final passage. And waiting until a bill is on the floor to forge a compromise is a risky bet.
Plus, Reid needs at least 60 votes in his pocket or ideally, many more to force the Houses hand on the issue. Only an overwhelming vote by the Senate would have any chance of putting pressure on Speaker John A. Boehner, R-Ohio, to take up a similar package. The fear has been that if any gun bill passes narrowly, if at all, there would not be enough political cover to force House Republicans to bring it up for a vote.
The need for a bipartisan deal may be why Democratic leaders have been so cagey about exactly when the debate will start”
Reid gun control ping!

I stand with Rand.
Have already sent Isakson an email warnng him off voting for any further gun control. I urge all GA resdents to do the same.
