The Senate votes no on expanded background checks for guns

These government officials are supposed to be public servants working for the American people, NOT the NRA.

How could our government allow the ban on assault rifles to expire in 2004? Guns that can fire multiple rounds of ammunition are not used for hunting or defending your home against burglars. They’re used by mentally ill people with the intent to take human lives.

How can one person buy all those weapons and not one red flag be raised?

No one is suggesting our second amendment rights be taken away, but an assault weapon ban should be enforced.

My thoughts are with the families of those lives lost on July 20th.
