Most of the organizations fighting to protect gun owners rights think this is a really bad deal. The current filibuster rules have been used or had their use threatened such that anti gun rights bills were not brought to the floor countless times in our lifetimes.
Senator Begich fully supports these rules changes and thinks he can still successfully defend Alaskan gun owners rights with these changes in place.
Senator Murkowski seems on the fence.
The changes were put forth for consderation by Senator Harry Reid if that has any bearing on judging weather they are good or bad for gun owners.
If you have any strong feelings about this issue, there is limited time to make your voice heard. Senator Begich's DC office number is: (202) 224-3004 Senator Murkowski's is: (202) 224-6665
If the mods want to move this into the 2A subcatagory thats ok by me, I just thought with the timing and all it should show up as a specific topic for today anyway.
