The majority spoke: Make it harder for people to get guns. What that has to do with destruction of the Second Amendment I don't know, but it sounds like unfounded fear: “If I have to be checked today, tomorrow you'll take guns completely.”
This political polarization has people outside Maria's Hallmark, armed with “Impeach Obama” signs that feature our president sporting a Hitler mustache, as they call him a socialist? Webster’s defines that fascists and socialists don’t have much in common.
But facts don't seem to matter. Apparently Sen. Joe Donnelly's decision put him in the crosshairs of the NRA lobby. Have Americans blithely accepted 33 of us dying from bullets each day?
I don't own a gun. Never plan to. If you want to, that's your right. But we have to draw some lines. And background checks seems as good a place as any to start.
