It is incomprehensible that the background checks for people who want to purchase guns did not pass the U.S. Senate.
With 90 percent of the American people in favor of background checks, this bill should have been signed into law. It is a sad day for all of us who were in favor of this critical legislation, but the fight is far from over.
The more pressure is put on those politicians who voted to not pass this bill, the better it will be. It is time for those elected officials to step up to the plate and do right by the American people. These politicians must listen to the consensus of the American people, not to those who are against this legislation.
There are too many people who have been and continue to be killed by guns in this country. When will this carnage stop or be significantly reduced?
Remember Sandy Hook, Aurora and Columbine! Never forget!
