Senate overrides regressive filibuster
See this story. Senators voted to filibuster the gun bill from ever reaching debate and they lost. So now at least it moves to the floor for debate, amendment and hopefully a vote. The forces of regressive obstruction have been allayed for the moment, so keep up the pressure folks to get this legislation passed. 2 Democrats joined with 29 Republicans to filibuster. Yes, even Democrats can be regressive, just not to the degree of Republicans. The 31 obstructionists can be found here, so give 'em hell.
