When People Fail To Act

I usually try not to get too political with my post here but it’s so frustrating that Congress could not come together on something so vitally important.  It doesn’t make sense to me how a common sense bill for gun control wasn’t worth it to Congress for them to pass it.  It is not violating anyone’s second amendment rights to ask for deeper background checks on individuals who want to own and operate a gun.  To be honest, I don’t even understand why they are fighting the ban against individuals owning assault riffles.

After all of the tragedies that have happened within the last couple of years, I just can’t comprehend why Congress isn’t taking some kind of action.  Regardless if they feel like it’s not going to make a difference, some action is certainly going to do more than NO action.  We have got to do better.

Congress is not listening to the Americans that they are supposed to be representing and they are certainly not thinking of the families of those lost in the recent tragedies.  If it were their families that were affected I think that they would feel differently.  This is a sad day for Washington because Congress is full of so much disdain for the Democratic Party and for the President that they refuse to see the bigger picture.  We have got to start voting for the right people to represent us and take a stand!
