Sens. Inhofe and Rubio Join Pledge To Block Gun Control Legislation

The letter, dated March 26, was sent to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) to inform him that the signatories to it would "oppose the motion to proceed to any legislation that will serve as a vehicle for any additional gun restrictions."
Inhofe and Rubio have added their names to the letter, indicating that they will stand with Paul, Cruz, and Lee in blocking gun control legislation as well.
