Shame on senators for ducking gun control

SheltonApril 22, 2013 

I have never felt physical rage over a political decision before. The filibuster on background checks for guns is outlandish and asinine.

We should not have to jump through hoops to have an intelligent law in this country. Absolute shame on every one of the senators who chose gun lobby money over intelligent, moral governing.

Background checks are not rocket science. Leaving giant loopholes in the gun-buying system is nothing short of criminal negligence.

I am in complete awe of the depravity of some supposed “leaders” and can only hope that the Americans in their states are just as shocked and indignant as I am, and that they do something about it next election cycle.
