Senators Cruz, Lee, and Paul Promise to Protect the Second Amendment

In a letter to Senator Harry Reid, Republican Senators Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, and Rand Paul promise to block any bill threatening the right of the people to keep and bear arms.

While the globalists at the United Nations confer on how best to disarm Americans, Senators Ted Cruz (R-Texas, shown, left), Mike Lee (R-Utah, shown, center), and Rand Paul (R-Ky., shown, right) are standing up for the Second Amendment.

The trio sent a letter on March 22 to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), informing him that they would oppose any legislation infringing on the constitutionally-protected right of Americans to keep and bear arms as set out in the Second Amendment. 

The Senators say they “intend to refuse consent to adopt the motion to proceed and will decide if further action is necessary....” Although the word isn’t used in the letter, in legislative parlance “further action” signals their determination to mount another marathon filibuster should the Second Amendment be threatened by a gun control bill.

On his website, Senator Paul published the text of the letter to Reid:

Dear Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid,

We, the undersigned, intend to oppose any legislation that would oppose on the American people's constitutional right to bear arms, or on their ability to exercise this right without being subjected to government surveillance.

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.

We will oppose the motion to proceed to any legislation that will serve as a vehicle for any additional gun restrictions.

Cruz posted a message on his website laying out his commitment to the cause of checking attacks on the Second Amendment.
