This amendment proposed protecting firearm records requests from being abused by the PATRIOT Act. Pro-Second Amendment organizations, like the Gun Owners of America, are concerned that an anti-gun administration could take advantage of current procedures to go on a phishing expedition of records for law-abiding gun owners who successfully passed a background check. Senate Democrats moved to table this amendment to block it from receiving a vote on May 26, 2011 in a roll call vote of 85-10.
