Vote on Cloture on the Motion to Proceed with S. 649
April 11, 2013 in Notices
Today, the Senate held a voice-vote on “cloture,” which means to end debate so that an up-or-down vote can be taken. A vote in favor is a vote to end debate and move to a vote on the issue itself, while a vote against is a vote to prolong debate or to filibuster.
Senators that voted “yea” are responsible for allowing S. 649 to move forward which if passed, will require a background check for every firearm sale, creating a defacto national gun registry, and will eliminate private sales and transfers of firearms.
Below are the Senators that voted to allow the bill to move forward. If yours is on the list, please contact them (click their name to get their details) to let them know you do not approve of S. 649 or any new gun control laws.
