Mark Kelly, the husband of former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ), won’t be getting the AR-15 after all. The news comes after over two weeks of controversy when the purchase was first reported by Breitbart.com’s Big Government site.

GOA Alert: Senator Lee to Offer Amendment Tonight to Ban Most Gun Control

We realize it’s short notice, but we wanted to alert you that, later tonight, Senator Mike Lee of Utah intends to offer an amendment to the budget resolution that would prohibit any gun control legislation which does not have a 2/3 vote in the Senate.

We know, we know. We would prefer to prohibit any and all gun control, even if it had 100 votes.

But if the Lee amendment is passed, the practical effect will be that gun control can never again pass the Senate.

FEINSTEIN GUN BAN NOT IN BILL

Will Be An Amendment Instead
By Harold Hutchison

A proposed semi-auto and magazine ban pushed by Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) may have a harder time securing passage through the Senate because Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) made the decision to exclude the ban from the Senate gun bill.

According to HotAir.com, Feinstein complained about the decision by Reid. The legislation will still be offered as an amendment to the underlying background check bill. This may be more about strategy on Reid’s part, though.

By Harold Hutchison

When someone spends one day pushing for the Bloomberg-inspired gun grab in Colorado, then two days later, speaks at an anti-gun rally, what do you think he did in between?
