From Breitbart.com

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) is using Senate procedures to prevent Republicans from adding amendments to repeal gun control to the Sportsmen Bipartisan Act.
On July 9 Breitbart News reported that GOP senators were planning to offer amendments that would:
Overturn the ban on large-capacity magazines and assault weapons in the District of Columbia; expand the right to purchase or transport firearms and ammunition across state lines; limit when a military veteran can be denied a firearm due to mental illness; and allow gun owners to carry weapons into post offices or other federal sites.
The Reno Gazette-Journal reports that Reid will not allow these amendments to see the light of day.
Reid said he had no other choice but to completely block amendments because he had "been unable to reach an agreement" with Republicans on a "reasonable list" of them.

Gun Owners of America
Once Again, Gun Owners Like You Vanquish Reid and Obama -- Kudos go to Senators Paul, Cruz, Lee and Cornyn
“Gun Owners of America [has] blasted the bill as a ‘fake pro-gun bill designed to re-elect endangered anti-gun [Senators] up in 2014 in pro-gun states.’” -- Roll Call, July 9, 2014

Earlier today, the “Harry Reid Preservation Act,” S. 2363, went down to defeat, as pro-gun Senators successfully filibustered the bill by a vote of 56-41.

In a last minute letter to Capitol Hill today, Gun Owners of America told Senators that a vote to end the filibuster “will be viewed as a vote AGAINST veterans ... AGAINST concealed carry reciprocity ... and AGAINST preserving the gun industry.”

GOA also warned Senators that a vote in favor of S. 2363 would be scored in our end-of-year rating.

As you know, S. 2363 was a “nothing-burger bill” which existed solely to elect anti-gun Democrats in Red States. This includes Senators like sponsor Kay Hagan (D-NC) -- plus cosponsors such as Mark Begich (D-AK), Mark Pryor (D-AR), Mark Udall (D-CO), Mary Landrieu (D-LA), Al Franken (D-MN) and Mark Warner (D-VA).

All these Senators are rated as D’s or F’s by Gun Owners of America.

S. 2363 would have allowed hunting on federal lands -- unless Barack Obama determined that guns were dangerous. How likely do you think that is?

It would have allowed importation of polar bear parts. Okay, that’s fine, in and of itself. But that’s hardly a fair trade for passing a bill that will help reelect anti-gun Senators like Hagan, Begich, Pryor, Landrieu (and others) -- Senators who will vote to confirm Obama’s anti-gun Supreme Court justices, thus overturning the Heller and McDonald decisions.

Thankfully, your help in asking Senators to offer truly pro-gun amendments paid dividends -- and got noticed by the media. Said one media outlet on Monday:

“Gun Owners of America is urging its members to urge their senators to oppose the Sportsmen’s Act unless Reid allows [Ted] Cruz, [Mike] Lee, and [Rand] Paul the opportunity to offer meaningful, pro-gun amendments.”

These Senators, in addition to John Cornyn (R-TX) and Roger Wicker (R-MS), did a yeomen’s job in fighting to get genuinely pro-gun amendments offered to the bill. These included national concealed carry reciprocity, gun rights for 175,000 military veterans, and a shut-down of Eric Holder’s Operation Choke Point.

But Reid employed a bully-tactic to block all Republican amendments. It consisted of “treeing” the bill and then invoking “cloture” to make the amendments out of order.

Thus, the 41 anti-gun votes IN FAVOR of invoking cloture -- thus ending the filibuster -- were votes against veterans, reciprocity and gun dealers.

Fortunately, our strategy worked. Enough Republicans were outraged by Reid’s underhanded tricks they easily sustained a filibuster, thus killing the bill.

Consider how significant your grassroots efforts were. All 26 Republicans who cosponsored the bill ended up listening to your collective voice and voted to filibuster -- aka, kill -- the bill. They were joined by a handful of anti-gun Democrats who felt the bill didn’t have enough gun control.

So congratulations! And great work! Your activism is a tremendous asset to our efforts in protecting our gun rights.

ACTION: Contact your Senators. Thank them if they voted to support the filibuster on S. 2363. But rebuke them if they supported Harry Reid’s efforts shut off all debate on good, pro-gun amendments.

All federal gun laws are repugnant to the Constitution PERIOD

that's right 34' NFA, 68' GCA, 86' FOPA all UN-Constitutional

An intelligent 6th grader can read, and comprehend Constitution, just goes to show you the intellect of what you are sending to Washington. Half of them are STUPID the other half are activist and think they are smarter than you.

I hope his d*ck gets bitten off by a pitbull or a hooker!!!! Reid is a soulless communist demon bent on anti-freedom which is what gun/people control is really about. Merica' needs to be done with all of these damn democraps.

We fought the Brits for our freedom back in 1776 and also against the pirates in Tripoli, then the Brits again in 1812. We fought the Mexicans in the Halls of Montezuma in Mexico City after the Alamo. We fought brother against brother during the Civil War, which all countries have done. We fought Spain in 1899. We fought the Germans in 1917-18 WW-I then again in WW-II. We fought the Commies in Korea in 1950-53. Then again in Vietnam 1965-75. We Fought in Lebanon, Grenada, Panama. We fought the Iraqis in 1990-91. The we fought the Somalis in 1993. And we are fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan 2001-Present.......Why do the Democrats fight against OUR freedoms every year for God knows how long and why do they continue to be OUR worst enemies even though they are Americans just like US, that has always been the saddest part........

Looking at this from a different point of view, I would venture to say the Repub's killed this by adding to much junk to be repealed. If they came up with some reasonable amendments something could probably be done. The jury is out on whether DC, a sportsman's paradise, can go with assault weapons but, I have a real problem with carrying weapons into any federal building especially a P.O. where they have enough problems. Also limiting a mentally ill veteran as to when they could buy a weapon makes sense to me. One of the first things they ask me when I go to the VA for my checkup which is asked of all Vets, among other things, is if I felt like killing someone! So they know there is a problem. There were fellow vets I served with that I wouldn't trust with a firearm without supervision under any circumstance.

Why did obama win two presidential elections. Some people are stupid and others are socialist, communist and hate the USA.
No Sir, because there were more people who wanted something for nothing, than honest folks who were willing to work for what they have. Throw in a few stupid libs who are more like baby robins, all mouth and no brains. Thats how Obumer got elected.
