Shame on U.S. Sen. Dan Coats for voting against the improved public safety that expanding background checks prior to gun sales would bring.
“Brian, we’re going to get hit again. It’s going to happen. I just hope when it happens, I’m not in Washington.”
Indiana Sen. Dan Coats sold his soul last week.
For the life of me, I don’t see how expanded background checks for gun purchases is an assault on the 2nd Amendment. Yet that is the phrase we hear over and over from the Indiana congressional delegation.
