The 31 Senators who are too afraid to talk about Gun Safety Legislation

Today in the Senate, there was a cloture vote to proceed to debate Gun Safety Legislation. Rand Paul led 13 other Senators with a filibuster to prevent debate in this matter.

At the end of the day the filibuster lost 68 to 31 with one Senator not voting. The filibuster lost and debate began.

So who were the 31 who are too afraid to allow the American people here the debate on whether we need changes to our gun laws? Who are these cowards and arrogant NRA stooges who place corporate profits over any attempts to preserve lives of men, women and children in our nation?

Here they are. At the bottom of this post is the link to the U.S. Senate so you can call these anti-American cowards and let them know what you think about their priorities.

And by the way, all but one of the 14 who said they would filibuster voted against cloture, Richard Burr (R-NC) opted instead to allow debate. Maybe he’s learning.
