Harry Reid Employs Sleazy Tactics to Block Pro-gun Rand Paul amendment

He’s at it again.* Senator Harry Reid is abusing his role as Majority Leader of the Senate to block a pro-gun amendment that Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is attempting to add to the so-called Patriot Act.
*
We alerted you yesterday to Rand Paul’s amendment that would exempt 4473’s (the form all purchasers fill out when they buy a firearm from a licensed dealer) and other gun records from the blanket information demands which the ATF can make under the 9/11 legislation.
*
In order to circumvent Sen. Paul’s efforts to protect gun rights, Reid scuttled the Senate version of the 9/11 extension and instead tacked it onto an unrelated House-passed small business bill.* He then employed a procedural scheme to lock out ALL Republican amendments, including Paul’s pro-gun amendment.

Speaking of Patriot Act, some information from Wired.com website. Not sure if the Senator is popping chaff as a warning:

There’s a Secret Patriot Act, Senator Says

These progresive/socialists will never stop until the Bill of Rights and the Constitution have been "legislated into oblivion". The worst part, as I have said before, is that the clueless people go right along with this sh!t. It's for our safety, it's ok. It won't affect ME, I'M NOT a terrorist!! But the government wont abuse any information they collect, that's illegal! This Patriot Act is going to be the big one to give the gov the momentum they need to make a complete gun grab.

As for Reid, he is as sleazy and pathetic as a sleazy pathetic person can be.......

I agree!

I have some friends, they heads are so deep in the sand, they think the government is the great protector of all! They do not watch TV, read the newspaper or look at news or anything else on the web.

Hmmm. Can I think of anyone more sleazy and pathetic than Harry Reid? Not both, but I have a limited circle of acquaintances. He must be ideally suited to head the US senate!

I know Im paranoid.

As long as people have cable TV (American Idol and Survivor) they Dont WANT to know. I bet half of Americans dont even know who Harry Reid is.

I watch a lot of TV with my retired father and likes the news. After switching cable companies we discovered that we only got CNN and not FOX. It was like going cold turkey on cigarettes. All of a sudden I cant learn anything about whats going on anywhere.

The mainstream media is corrupt and actively dumbing down the people to advancethere liberal agenda. Poor fkin Wolf Blitzer cant find anything to talk about.

I feel your pain. I have to pay extra to get Fox. I get a few other networks with the package, but nothing special. I don't get "premium" channels like HBO or whatever. It seems to me that Fox should be included just like CNN and the other socialist networks.

Here's another update:

May 24, 2011

Keep up the Pressure!
Gun Owners of America
We’re Making Progress on Exempting 4473’S From Blanket Government Demands Under 9/11 Bill

Yesterday, we wrote to you about Senator Rand Paul’s amendment to exempt 4473’s and other gun records from the blanket information demands which the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) can make under 9/11 legislation. An extension of three provisions of that legislation is currently pending on the Senate floor.

Without the exemption, it is possible that BATFE could go to a secret court, and, in a one-party (ex parte) proceeding, obtain an order to produce every 4473 in the country, ostensibly because a “terrorism investigation” requires it.

This is unacceptable. It is a violation of gun owner protections enacted in 1986 as part of the McClure-Volkmer Firearms Owners Protection Act. Not surprisingly, BATFE is already trying to violate McClure-Volkmer in its new proposed rules to require reporting of multiple semi-auto sales -– and to compile a gun registry from those reports.

Senate insiders report that Sen. Paul’s “gun issue” is the single remaining hang-up on the reauthorization. Not surprisingly, anti-gun Democrats running for reelection do not want to vote on this.

But YOU cannot allow them to escape accountability.

ACTION: Call your Senators. Tell them that you insist on a vote on the Rand Paul gun amendment to the 9/11 bill currently pending on the Senate floor.
