Five Republican senators Friday vowed to oppose any legislation that would 'infringe on the American people's constitutional right to bear arms."
In a letter to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nevada, they vowed to oppose consideration of any bill that "will serve as a vehicle for any gun restrictions."
The Senate is expected to take up gun control legislation when it returns from a spring recess during the week of April 8.
“Instead of promoting legislation that will only infringe on the rights of law-abiding citizens, the President should focus on enforcing the laws that are already in place,” said Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla.
Others joining him are Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas, Mike Lee of Utah, Rand Paul of Kentucky, and Marco Rubio of Florida.
