Keene Eager for a Vote

From the Washington Post:

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

King also asked him if the NRA would punish members of Congress who support universal background checks on gun purchases, which he said recent polls show most Americans support, and which the NRA at one time supported but now opposes.

Keene responded: “The answer is yes.”

They want to get Senators on the record for 2014, I think. This morning they put out a call to keep the phone calls coming to key Senators who are likely wavering:

So please, call each of the senators below and tell them to vote NO on any gun ban…NO on any magazine ban…NO on criminalizing private firearm transfers…and NO on any gun registration scheme.

  1. I wonder if Senator John McCain’s name isn’t on the list because he can’t be trusted to answer honestly or because he deserves the B+ rating the NRA gave him.
