GOP Senators Threaten to Filibuster Gun Bill

Sens. Rand Paul (R-KY), Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Mike Lee (R-UT) "are threatening to filibuster gun-control legislation, according to a letter they plan to hand-deliver to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's office on Tuesday," Politico reports.

"Reid plans to bring up a gun-control measure that focuses on broadening background checks and cracking down on interstate gun-trafficking after the current Senate recess. Conservatives are concerned that once that bill reaches the floor, amendments could stiffen restrictions on gun control."
