Senator Rand Paul: "...more senators need to stand up for our Second Amendment rights or the rights will be lost."
Senator, I respectfully submit that more citizens need to stand up for our God-given rights, or indeed, they will be lost. And stand, they will, if the US Congress fails to uphold their oaths to the Constitution in this matter.

(To anger a conservative, tell him a lie. To anger a liberal, tell him the truth.)
So what in he hell are we doing about it that has any real meaning. We know all this.
The chief problem I have is that nothing in this legislation would have prevented the terrible massacre in Newtown, Connecticut.
This is truly the crux of the matter.
Not a damn thing proposed now or in recent history would prevent this. This is proof, in the most basic and fundamental way of deriving truth, that the Newtown massacre is being used for the sole purpose of infringing on the rights of law abiding gun owners.
Our population is so brain dead that they can't see the forest for the trees.

I just sent an email to my senator John Cornyn asking him to join Cruz and Paul and the others. He and I go back many years. He saved my butt when a Democrat DA tried to get me removed as Judge of the Early Voting Ballot Board. That went all the way to Cornyn’s office as he was our State Attorney General at that time. I knew I was right, and Cornyn’s opinion sealed it that I was right and could be that judge. I mentioned that in my email and hope that will push him some to join the others.

(Freedom is NOT a loophole!)
The Constitution doesn’t grant rights, it merely affirms our natural, God-given rights. That’s what “inalienable” means... NOBODY can take them away. You can take away our guns, but you can only temporarily, and at great personal risk, take away our rights. Can I get an Amen, Brothers and Sisters!

You're right on this Rand, now, do real conservatives a favor and drop your plan to "Normalize"(Amnesty) the 40 million+ Illegal Aliens in this country better known as "Undocumented Democrats".
When you do that, I'll know you are serious about being President and actually representing conservatives.
Until then, you are simply pandering to the left like the GOP-E.

I heard the filibuster is likely not going to occur. Too bad.

On one hand, I'm happy my two senators, Crapo and Risch, have joined Sen. Paul in the filibuster effort. But on the other, I'm dang near livid the rest haven't signed on. I understand Insane McCain and Limp-Wristed Lindsey not helping, but the rest need to be thrown out on their a**es next time they're up for election, by competent primary opponents.
