Lee, Paul, Cruz Threaten to Filibuster Gun Legislation

Sens. Mike Lee, Rand Paul, and Ted Cruz say they may filibuster the Senate Democrats’ legislative gun control package when it comes up for consideration next month. 

Reports The Washington Post:

The senators sent a brief letter to Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) outlining their opposition to “any legislation that would infringe on the American people’s constitutional right to bear arms,” signaling they will oppose the procedural vote to begin debate on the gun package when the Senate returns from its current two-week spring break.

“We will oppose the motion to proceed to any legislation that will serve as a vehicle for any addition gun restrictions,” the three wrote.
