The anti-gun government funding bill, which passed late Thursday night (December 11), now goes to the Senate.
As a matter of substance, the bill spends hundreds of millions of dollars to fund Barack Obama’s illegal executive actions on guns.
Not only that, the bill fully funds the anti-gun ObamaCare law (which threatens the privacy of millions of gun owners) and the President’s illegal executive amnesty (which begins a process of legalizing millions of new anti-gun voters).
To defeat the bill in the Democrat-controlled Senate will presumably require only 41 votes because of the ability of Senators to filibuster. While, admittedly, it is a “hail Mary” pass, it is one worth throwing.
Contact your Senators and ask them to vote against the anti-gun government funding bill, both on cloture and on final passage (which will probably consist of a vote on concurring with the House amendment).
The $1.1 trillion deal between Boehner and Pelosi to fund the government until September 30, 2015, was supposed to be anointed by every member of the Republican caucus.
House Speaker John Boehner is now faced with “snowballing opposition” to his plan of passing a ten-month carte blanche funding bill for the government — an abomination called the “Cromnibus,” which is a combination of the initials for “continuing resolution” (CR) and “omnibus.”
