    Glad my Senators voted against it. The reason – it didn’t address the actual problem. It was a “feel good” bill. The checks would not have stopped the past shootings. I do not own any firearms nor a member of the NRA, but I think there is a way to adress the actual problem of handeling the transfer of weapons. We talk about the loss of life in the US, but we gladly ignore all the weapons we sent to Mexico for “Fast and Furious.” That’s where the real outrage should be. Not only did we allow straw purchases, we promoted it and it killed a lot of people because of it.

    The wall of shame is missing 2 Presidents and the current AG.

  2. Scott says:

    Want to add that you forgot to include Sen Harry Reid (D – Nev). Although procedural so he can try to bring it up at a later date since he will be on the Majority, he still voted “Nay”

  3. Scott says:

    Not sure what the link is for other than to promote an emotional response. I looked at the pictures, but I couldn’t find an image of Jaime Zapata. But what I did find was an image of Trayvon Martin. While Mr. Martin was a victim of gun violence, we do not know if it was a self-defense shooting. Perhaps we will never be satisfied with the results of the case when it finally ends. So instead of posting an emotional site (I know, advertisers go for emotions), lets look at the laws we currently have and push forward with those. Here is an interesting fact from Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) – In 2010, more than 15,000 fugitives and felons tried to illegally purchase a firearm. The Justice Department prosecuted only 44.

    Not a single new law proposed would have kept Sandy Hook from happening. You liberals refuse to allow anything to be done to crazies and now you want more laws to punish citizens who did not break the law. Control, is the issue with you people and because of people like you I will never give up any of my rights.

    Actually Larry – I think most liberals would agree that “crazies” should probably get mental health assistance – and also be prohibited from buying firearms. Most people also understand that if you have to reload a weapon – as opposed to having clips capable of firing hundreds of rounds at a time – it gives people time to respond accordingly. “We people” also believe it is a “right” to live in a clean environment with good education for all, and not to have to live in fear of “crazies” brandishing military-grade weapons.
