Filthy Reid Vows to Break GOP Filibuster on Guns on Thursday

Either he'll break the filibuster, he says, or he won't; but the point is, he claims he's bringing it to a vote either way, which is a warning shot to "conservative Democrats" that they won't be permitted any hiding place.

And if he doesn't break the filibuster, he's vowing to use procedural tricks to keep bringing the issue up.

If Democrats fail to achieve the 60-vote threshold required to end the filibuster, Reid pledged to use procedural tricks provided to the majority leader to gum up the Senate legislative calendar to continue to force votes on gun legislation. "It will take a little bit of time, but we're going to do it," he said.

It is unclear whether there are 60 votes in the Senate to end the filibuster, and Reid conceded he did not know either. At least six Republican senators have said they will vote with Democrats to end the filibuster and allow an up-or-down vote on the gun bill. Sen. Frank Lautenberg, D-N.J., is ill and will not be in the Senate this week to vote, and at least two leading Democrats, Sens. Max Baucus of Montana and Mark Pryor of Arkansas, have not said whether they will support Reid's effort to move to the gun bill.
