    @frigginhell" We used to have gun laws. They've been slowly repealed and replaced over the last decade and made impotent." Source please, and everybody just knows its true isn't a suitable source.

    In reality it is people that are the problem but we will never get a leftist liberal to venture down that avenue because these low moral individules are a large part of the leach side of the liberal voting base. Where does the majority of gun violence occur and whos their daddy?

    @marine1 We used to see reports and pictures from the inner cities showing black gang bangers and drug dealers. Where have those reports gone? Hell, the Chicago Southside, along with the Detroit inner city and Cleveland, are the most violent places in our nation. And most of these animals use handguns and would never register a firearm in their own name.

    Hear ye,hear ye, ladies and gentlemen twelve American patriots ready to stand up to the communist traitors who will not stand by their oath to protect and defend the constitution of the United States. Mr. Paul imo is a constitutionalist and a great American he would make a great president.

    Senators take an oath to protect and defend the Constitution. Any Senator who signs this bill should be impeached for malfeasance in office and tarred and feathered and run out of town on a rail. Of course I hope the filibuster succeeds. It wouldn't even be necessary if the entire Senate believes the Constitution means what it says. Please, no comments about what polls say.

    Good thing about a filibuster is it gives the opportunity to teach people especially those on Twitter who would not normally pay attention to what's going on. I expect the same results this time as people learn the truth about their rights under the Constitution regardless of the lives they have been told by their masters in office. as for Coburn it sounds like sour grapes from someone who believes it's his turn

    Well stated! It's also a mechanism to stop the "ram it through before they have a chance to read it and think" strategies of Connecticut and Colorado! I used to be against filibusters, but not anymore! Have a good one, bsking.

    @Gary_Owen Filibusters were not really a problem, it was using the mere threat of filibuster to stop all legislative business on an issue. If they actually do the filibuster one must respect it regardless of if one agrees or disagrees, what was happening instead was senators saying they would filibuster was being used as an excuse not to move forward...

    It frightens me when I find I agree with a list of wackos like the senators named in this article, but i do. Based of the articles summary of what the law would do I can not say I support anything in it.

    I wish the CT legislature had the guts to filibuster the gun laws that just passed here, but no they don't have what it takes to stand up for our state.

    Things like this need to be put on record, in the congress and in the publics mind as to who wants to preserve freedom and who is a stateist.

    I happen to agree with the filibuster, but don't delude yourself, this guy doesn't want to preserve freedom, he wants to get a following so he can run for president.

    @PoliticalSpice I should have added he ruined his presidential chances a few weeks ago when he made a statement about abortion, cant remember exactly but I know it was draconian. Because there are women who call themselves conservative but vote on that one issue it needs to be taken off the table. He's already hobbled himself.

    at this point i would agree with anyone who wants to stop these foolish gun laws.
    i personally have not seen anything to show putting controls on guns making folks have to pay this fee or that do a darn thing to stop crime.

    one thing,those invested in certain guns stocks may make a buck off this thing

    Surprises me that nobody has mentioned the obvious. 12 Senators can keep a filibuster going indefinitely. As I understand it, when Paul needs a bathroom break he simply yields to a fellow filibuster partner and around and around it goes. Once again, government brought to an absolute standstill over a social issue. And the beat goes on.

    Round and round the filibuster goes where it stops nobody knows but it gives sen Paul a superior bargaining position and a favor to curry if he caves

    I really don't know which side I stand on the gun issue because it is a right and gun violence is out of control. No one has a simple answer to the problem. But this filibuster is just a waste of time. No matter what bill comes out, it has as much of a chance of passing as I have of walking on the moon. Congress has too much to do and little time to do it in. Why pick and choose which bill to filibuster? One not do every single one? Congress is not working anyway.

    @Roco said "gun violence is out of control". Nope, it's the reporting of it that's out of control.

    Violent crime is at a 40+ year low in America, and shootings are less per capita now than ever. It's simply reported more now, because reporters get paid extra to report certain topics, and it's all about the media's ratings as well. Nice stories don't sell, only bad ones, so they milk them for all they're worth.

    Journalists have become the bottom-feeders of society, held in contempt now as much as lawyers or worse, and it's because of their slanted and biased reporting.

    @Concerned_Cit If I have not lived in areas where I personally know that gun violence is out of control, I would agree with you. When I speak of gun control, I am not only looking at mass shootings like most people tend to. I am looking at the general aspect of guns being used to rob, shoot, harass and/or kill. I am not saying take guns for law-abiding people either. Most gun violence stats are misrepresented because of how they are collected. If your city/area those not fit a certain criteria, you are overlooked.

    They have enough gun laws on the books now that the court system largely ignore. How many teen ghetto shootings are continually held in juvenile court so the young thug won't be tried as an adult & not have a record in later years ? Been thru the joke of the county court systems & last minute cancellations hoping to make it harder to convict teen derelicts that are bound to end up in prison or face down in the street.-- I say show me the number of people killed by guns , not counting those involving gangsta thugs , gangsta dope , gangsta territory & gangstas robbing , car-jacking & home invasions . Just for once - show us the true facts of how many killed NOT involving the welfare supported projects & Section 8 ghetto hell holes that the Gov't.'s cradle to grave entitlements created . Like it or not , liberal-socialist welfare starting approx. 1965 created this Monster we're dealing with today .

    Do you hope the group's planned filibuster of gun control legislation succeeds?
    YES YES YES and YES!!!
    America needs to take a hard stand against Obama's tyranny!!!

    How dare they try to force legislators read laws and stop trying to infringe on out constitutional rights. They should just stop being evil obstructionalist and help the dems destroy the constitution.

    Thank goodness for the Republicans. Standing up against that man that has taken over the White House. You know.... Whats his name??? The Kenyan guy.

    I hope they block the legislation. The Senate has not passed a budget in 5 years, why not just shut it down for all the good it's doing. And the House should all be present for the filibuster so they are shut down also. And get Obama to attend, then all the idiots would be in one place doing nothing to advance the issues they were elected to work on. At least they would be getting together on something and maybe the country would run better if they could do nothing.

    Hope the filibuster works ! All the Dem. are going to do is try to slid new laws in back door .Every Thing I mean Every Thing the government try's to straighten out goes to hell in a basket for the people they're pretending to help . But the people don't get what's good for them ! The government of today takes care of the Government and its POWER GRAB AND CONTROL! WAKE UP SHEEP !

    We have enough gun laws. Handguns (which are used in the vast majority gun related deaths) already require a background check at your local sherrifs department, and a permit to buy. But they dont really want to do anything there, they want to restrict rifles and magazines. No legislation that restricts firearms further will lower the death rates. It just may raise them.
