    NRA President Speaks Out On Gun Control Measures

    CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- National Rifle Association President David Keene said Wednesday he doesn't expect a filibuster from gun rights supporters as the Senate prepares to vote on potential gun control issues.

    Keene spoke at Harvard University's John F. Kennedy Jr. Forum in a one-hour event moderated by CNN chief national correspondent John King, who asked him if the NRA would support efforts to filibuster and block the votes.

    "The president wants votes on these issues. We want votes. There will be votes," Keene said.

      Keene knows he has all his Congress&Senate ducks in a row, ready to do the gun lobby's bidding, so he feels pretty confident that no meaningful gun control legislation will pass.

      Interestingly, the NRA HQ is a gun free zone.  The US Capitol is a gun free zone.  The SCOTUS is a gun free zone.  Works pretty well for all of them.  And yet these losers want to jam guns into the hands of every man, woman and child in America.

    •  But, Obama is pushing this issue. (1+ / 0-)

      How can there not be a filibuster?

      Just when you thought there wasn't a dime's worth of difference between the two parties, the Republicans go and prove you're wrong.
