Rubio joins group threatening to filibuster gun control legislation

en. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) on Thursday joined a group of Republicans threatening to filibuster gun control legislation in the Senate.

“We, the undersigned, intend to oppose any legislation that would infringe on the American people’s constitutional right to bear arms, or on their ability to exercise this right without being subjected to government surveillance,” he wrote in a statement on his website. “The Second Amendment to the Constitution protects citizens’ right to self-defense. It speaks to history’s lesson that government cannot be in all places at all times, and history’s warning about the oppression of a government that tries.”

Earlier this week, GOP Sens. Rand Paul (Ky.), Mike Lee (Utah), and Ted Cruz (Texas) wrote a letter to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) pledging to “oppose the motion to proceed to any legislation that will serve as a vehicle for any additional gun restrictions.”

    About dam time. I like Rubio but he is prone to hesitate when it comes to the important Constitutional matters.

    • Sarah Conner

      Also like Rubio,but I think he bears watching…might be on that slippery slope politicians find themselves on when they breath the washington air and drink the water…

    Thank you Senator Rubio. Shame on the rest of the republican senators for failure to not join these gentleman. I guess they have another dinner with the fraudulent Barry.

    Sen. Rubio:

    I am not a resident of your state – and you are not my senator. That is a shame because it would be nice to have an elected official I could respect. I’m stuck with Dick Durbin. Sadder words are seldom spoken … with the exception of “Fitzgerald, the RINO, is my other senator.”

    Millions of Americans have answered the call of their country and fought from Lexinton & Concord to foreign rice paddies and deserts — with about 1,250,000 brave men and women giving their lives to secure the Constitution and the Rights of our fellow Americans. We have fought around the world to secure our rights, we only ask that you continue YOUR fight on the floor of the Senate. We need you to honor the 238 years of sacrifice and keep those who would spit on individual liberties and declare them “void where prohibited by law” relegated to irrevelance.

    We who survived and those who have died now pass the torch to you and like minded senators. Your theatre of operations is just as important to our liberties as any other over the years. Please keep the faith.
    God Bless (if it is still legal to say that.)
