Urgent action items needed on Thursday's Senate gun-control legislation. See below, then forward this message to your friends and share it on Facebook. --Steve
Our sources on Capitol Hill have confirmed that the crucial Senate gun control votes will take place TOMORROW -- and published reports indicate that key Republicans are on the brink of caving on this crucial issue.
As you know, 60 votes are required in the Senate to invoke "cloture" and end any attempted filibuster on a proposed bill. That means Harry Reid must have about a half dozen Republicans side with Democrats in order for this massive gun-control legislation to move to the Senate floor.
Well, we have the names of the Republican Senators who, reportedly, are joining with Harry Reid in supporting cloture:
John McCain, Kelly Ayotte, Jeff Flake, Johnny Isakson, Tom Coburn, Dean Heller, Susan Colins and Lindsey Graham.
Grassfire has identified other key Senators, including two Democrats, who are waffling on whether to support the cloture vote.
+ + URGENT ACTION NEEDED To Stop Anti-Constitutional Obama Gun-Control Power Grab
I know that you share my concern about this legislation, which essentially amends the Constitution and -- according to the NRA and ACLU -- could create the framework for a national gun registry. Also, through the use of the word "transfer," this bill creates (from an ACLU lawyer) a "criminal justice trap" for lawful gun owners.
The next 24 hours are crucial. If you want your voice to be heard, now is the time to act!
