Plain question: why do we accept this?
Plain truth: 90% of Americans want expanded, more strict background checks for gun purchasers.
Plain truth: a majority of the Senate voted for more comprehensive background checks yesterday.
Plain truth: a powerful lobby representing gun manufacturers and a small minority of gun owners pushed a minority of 46 Senators to vote "No," and they prevailed because the Senate hobbles itself with the 60-vote threshold.
Plain truth: 46 Senators acted in their own self-interest (re-election) and continued to let partisan ideology get in the way of doing what's right for America and Americans.
Plain question: why do we accept this? why do we keep re-electing these people?
Plain question: why aren't the news media using the words "shame" and "shameful" in their dispirited reporting on this failure in the Senate?
