Twenty little children dead, thousands of americans dying each year from gun violence, NRA members and responsible gun owners clearly want background checks. Our admirals in the military, Colin Powell and the police force ALL say background checks are imperative and there is absolutely NO need for assault weapons that have 30 - 100 rounds of killing power at one time on our streets and republicans in the house still vote OVERWHELMINGLY NO. Adding insult to injury they initially insisted on not voting on this bill at all then turn around and fillibuster the bill yesterday.
A call for action America. We have an entire republican party (with the exception of two republicans) voting against the safety of the american people. They are working for somebody but it is NOT the american people. This vote yesterday should have EVERY american alarmed. Will your son, daughter, mother, father, sister or brother be the next victim.
Twitter responses breaking records with the amount of people outraged about the republicans behavior. A serious question EVERY american should ask themselves. If 90% of the american people want background checks and the republican house votes "NO" to this, who in Gods name are they working and fighting for? It is certainly NOT the american people.
The republican controlled houses behavior over the past six years has been destructive, divisive, deceptive and simply inhumane. How long do we sit and watch them continue to say NO to all of our safety nets and necessities while they fight for the rich, the lobbyist and Grover Norquist.
John Boehner, Eric Cantor, Mitch McConnell and the entire republican controlled house have been like a cancer that has metastasized destroying cell after cell in our great nation. They must be VOTED OUT ASAP.
