Senators Rand Paul, Ted Cruz and Mike Lee are talking potential filibuster of Gun Legislation

The Senate’s leading conservative trio — Rand Paul (R-Ky.), Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Mike Lee (R-Utah) – are threatening to filibuster the Senate Democrats’ gun violence legislation slated for consideration next month, leaving open the possibility of marathon speeches in the mold of Paul’s nearly 13-hour filibuster on the CIA’s drone policy. 
The senators sent a brief letter to Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) outlining their opposition to “any legislation that would infringe on the American people’s constitutional right to bear arms,” signaling they will oppose the procedural vote to begin debate on the gun package when the Senate returns from its current two-week spring break. 
“We will oppose the motion to proceed to any legislation that will serve as a vehicle for any addition gun restrictions,” the three wrote.
