Well Mike Lee from Utah proposed amendment which would require senators to have 67 votes to be able to pass any gun reform.  So basically he forced all of them to vote yea on nay.  So now we finally have on record where the senators really stand on guns.  The NRAs beloved Harry Reid voted Nay, so hopefully this will be his last term in office.

So here are the voting records of everyone.  Here is the link as well.  http://www.senate.gov/legislative/LIS/roll_call_lists/roll_call_vote_cfm.cfm?congress=113&session=1&vote=00087

Mike Lee proposed legislation that on all future gun related bills that the senate would have to have 67 votes or more to make it pass.  Thus making it harder for the senate to pass future gun bills, because they would have to have 67 votes instead of just 51. 

This particular piece of legislation was just the vote to try and pass this.  It won 50 to 49, but it did not pass because they needed 60 votes.  So in the future they will still be able to pass gun legislation but they do not need the 67 votes.

But what this did was a role call for the senators to show us where they really stand on gun rights.  So now all these senators that have been trying to play both sides have had to come out and say whether or not they are pro gun or anti gun.  The ones that voted Nay are now on record voting for gun control.  Those who voted yes are pro gun. 

Harry Reid voted Nay to Mike Lee's proposed legislation, so now we know he is against guns even though he has been trying to play the pro gun side all this time.

Feinstein Angry as Majority of the Senate
Votes to Ban Gun Control

Senate staffer says “gun grabbers were livid” and “DiFi was pissed”

On Friday, GOA asked you to contact your Senators and urge them to support the Lee amendment which would require Senators to muster 67 votes before adopting gun control legislation. You responded to the call, and the results were very encouraging.

The good news is that a majority of Senators supported the Lee amendment by a 50-49 vote. The bad news is, since the Senate rules requires 60 votes, the Lee amendment fell ten votes short.

Click here to see how your Senators voted on the Lee amendment.

Part of GOA’s strategy for defeating Harry Reid’s gun control bill (S. 649) has been to put Senators on record and force them to reveal where they stand on gun rights. Are they going to stand with us, or are they going to follow Obama down the road to further gun control restrictions and, therefore, require additional pressure from their constituents?

One high-level Senate staffer, commenting about the vote on the Lee amendment which took place at 4 a.m. Saturday morning, told GOA that, “The gun grabbers were livid when Senator Lee forced the vote. Mark Pryor looked nervous as hell, and DiFi [aka, Dianne Feinstein] was pissed.”

GOA’s strategy was realized twice Saturday when two key amendments were offered to the budget resolution — one amendment by Senator Lee, the other by Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK).

Six Democrats and all but one Republican (Mark Kirk of Illinois) voted in favor of the Lee Amendment which would make S. 649 impossible to pass. Again, this is because the Lee amendment would have required anti-gun Senators to muster 67 votes (rather than a simple majority of 51 votes) before gun control could be adopted.

There were six “Red State” Democrats who voted Against the Lee amendment — Senators Mark Begich (AK), Tim Johnson (SD), Tim Kaine (VA), Mary Landrieu (LA), Harry Reid (NV) and Mark Warner (VA). Gun owners in these states should be sure to voice their displeasure with these Senators.

The other provision — an anti-UN treaty amendment offered by Sen. Inhofe — passed by a 53-46 margin.  53 senators, including eight Democrats, voted for the Inhofe amendment to kill the UN Arms Trade Treaty — a treaty that would impose gun registration and possibly even ban handguns and semi-autos, while creating a microstamping requirement that would be technologically impossible to comply with. You can see how your Senators voted on the Inhofe amendment here.

Anti-gun Mary Landrieu and Harry Reid voted wrong on both amendments — and even refused to join the eight Democrats who oppose the UN Arms Trade Treaty. This treaty could be self-executing and could, without further legislation, force the U.S. to implement gun registration and bans on semi-autos and handguns.

Gun owners in Louisiana and Nevada, you have some homework to do — Mary Landrieu and Harry Reid need to hear from you!

GOA will keep you updated on the status of Harry Reid’s gun control bill (S. 649), which will be voted on right after the Easter recess.

Once again, with few exceptions, voting was divided along party lines.

I often hear the arguments that there's really no difference between the 2 parties. Anyone who says that either isn't paying attention or isn't talking about 2nd Amendment issues. For all its faults, at least the Republicans aren't out to ban / confiscate guns from law-abiding citizens.

The Democrats are the gun control party, and if they had their way without opposition and their end game was fully realized, you can bet we'd have severely restricted gun ownership, if not outright confiscation of all privately owned firearms.

How anyone could both value our 2nd Amendment rights AND be a Democrat is beyond me.
