This is insane! I can't believe we have so many heartless people in elective offices in Washington making decisions that are not what the people -- whom they are supposed to represent -- ask for and expect.
If 90 percent of Americans believe tougher background checks are needed, why do the U.S. senators vote against it? Makes one wonder just how much money went under the table from the good ol' boys in the NRA.
I guess Newtown, Conn., and all the past shootings and killings in this country mean nothing to our lawmakers. Just keep voting us back in office and overpaying us, so we can retire in comfort and smile about all the good we did in representing our constituents.
The lady in the spectator galleries above the senate floor was right when she yelled, "Shame on you."
