Thune Amendment Fails 58-39

The Thune Amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act (S. 1390) failed this afternoon on a vote of 58-39, lacking the required 60 votes to invoke cloture. There were more than enough votes to pass the amendment but those opposing the amendment decided to filibuster the vote - thus requiring 60 votes for passage. Virginia's Senators Mark Warner and Jim Webb both voted with gun owners and our right to self defense and voted for the amendment. Please be sure to contact Senators Warner and Webb and thank them for standing with law abiding gun owners.
