After a few senators voted down the proposed gun law, one cannot help but equate them to the Marquis de Sade in that he, too, said, "The people be damned."
President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden did not receive a stunning defeat; the American people did. Do they not see the growing number of crazies, intolerants, zealots and extremists who want to change our way of life in America? What message are they sending these people, "Go ahead, we got the Senate on our side"?
They have arbitrarily infringed upon the function of the U.S. Supreme Court, by declaring the law unconstitutional. Goodness, vote for the law and let the court decide one way or another.
Yes, we have a right to bear arms, and many use them for protection and hunting. So much that we can hear assault weapons fired every new year. I guess they are defending themselves from Martians and trying to bag the moon in order to have some cheese for supper.
