We’re told that the vote allowed the bill to proceed with the provision that it receives free opportunity for amending and free and full opportunity for debating.
That means there will be other opportunities for filibustering or killing the bill.
And it still has to pass the House, no matter what comes out of the Senate.
Why couldn't the Republicans just stay true to the Second Amendment, say "Shall Not Be Infringed" and kill this monstrosity dead NOW? Why do they ALWAYS kick the can to a position where they ALWAYS lose?
