Today, the Senate voted 68-31 to end the shameful GOP filibuster and proceed with the debate on gun violence prevention legislation.
90 percent of Americans support background checks for all gun sales.
41 House Republicans have signed onto a letter to Speaker Boehner demanding the House NOT vote on a gun violence prevention bill that includes background checks.
Astonishing…even to other Republicans.
GOP Congressman Peter King (NY) had this to say about the bipartisan background check compromise unveiled yesterday in the Senate:
If Pat Toomey can support it, most conservatives should be able to support it and should want to support it. [4/11]
So who will Speaker Boehner listen to?
