If they don’t get it, Obama will just do an executive order.
Check it out:


Senate Democrats are “confident” they have the votes to bring gun control legislation to the Senate floor. At least 14 Republicans have threatened to filibuster the legislation, but eight Republicans “have said they will not attempt to block an effort to bring up the measure, a senior Democratic aide said.”

The staffer noted statements by Republican Sens. John McCain (Ariz.), Dean Heller (Nev.), Johnny Isakson (Ga.), Lindsey Graham (S.C.), Susan Collins (Maine), Pat Toomey (Pa.), Mark Kirk (Ill.) and Kelly Ayotte (N.H.) indicating they would not support a filibuster of moving to the gun bill.

Although Reid does not have a formal whip count yet, ‘ “He’s always been confident that he can get 60 votes,” the aide said.’
