By some polls, 90 percent of our citizens want background checks for people wanting to purchase a gun. But the NRA is against that, so it seems it will never get past the House of Representatives.
Is this the same place they say is government by the people, for the people?
Even if that number were grossly exaggerated, and say the real number is only 55 percent in favor of background checks, why can't this come to a vote in both the Senate and the House, so it will be on record who is voting against the will of the people?
And now it seems the NRA is against any new laws pertaining to people buying guns for convicted felons! I can understand some of the opposition to other gun control measures, but how could anyone be against those I've listed?
I don't have a problem voting for a Democrat or a Republican, but if they are against those things, I promise they will never get my vote.
My only regret is that I can't vote for or against most of them because of my place of residence. What about you?
