GOA: Stop Dirty Harry from Ramming Gun Control Down our Throats


Stop Dirty Harry from Ramming
Gun Control Down our Throats

The Washington Post headline pretty much says it all: “Obama backs [Harry] Reid’s filibuster reform effort.”

Wonder why?

Why, for instance, would Barack Obama support Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s efforts to change the Senate rules, by brute force, so that it would be easier?

  • To implement the UN Arms Trade Treaty to register, ban, and microstamp firearms?
  • To reinstate the semi-auto ban?
  • Or, to allow Obama to turn anyone into a “prohibited person” and take away their guns, simply by putting them on a secret “watch list”?

To ask such questions is to answer them. The political Left would love to disarm us all and take away our guns. To wit, the nation had to endure Bob Costas’ rant over the weekend when he essentially suggested that otherwise law-abiding people shouldn’t have guns.

Click hear to see GOA Executive Director Larry Pratt’s answer and rebuke to Bob Costas for his ill-informed comments in the wake of the Javon Belcher suicide.

But, in order to push a progressive agenda through the Senate, Reid is first going to have to use his deceptive “cheat scheme” in order to change the Senate rules to make it easier to pass the Left’s anti-gun initiatives.

By eliminating the filibuster (on the motion to take up legislation), Reid intends to eliminate our most effective way to kill a bad anti-gun bill
