Name: The Senate
Age: 224

Bee-otched For: shooting down tougher gun laws

Yesterday was a tough day for President Obama.

It was also a tough day for the victims of Sandy Hook, Aurora, Columbine and other places of mass shootings and individuals like Gabby Giffords, John Lennon, Mahatma Gandhi, Tupac Shakur and too many other names to mention.

Yesterday, the Senate vetoed the tougher background checks proposed by President Obama. Many believe that the NRA and red state Democrats played a role, especially since four of the people who nayed the bill were Democrats. However, some Republicans supported the measure, including Arizona's John McCain.

The measure needed 60 votes to be passed; it fell 54-46.

When the bill was defeated, a voice from the gallery was heard crying "shame on you!" Clearly, this was a sad day for all Americans in hopes of making this nation a safer one.

Folks, this is proof that we need to do more - and a lot more - to get this nation normal. Today was a wonderful day for gun nuts who think that it's wonderful when people who shouldn't own a gun gets their hands on one or two or one hundred. Adam Lanza should have never been exposed to guns, and 28 people from Newtown, CT - mostly young children - are now dead. Thankfully, he was one of the 28. It's stupid that other countries have extremely tough gun laws and their crime rate's a helluva lot lower than America's.

I hope the NRA's happy. They spent millions sponsoring a NASCAR race in Texas last weekend, using that sport to get support for their BS. They won. These assholes are out there to shoot down any idea that would prevent one more innocent person from dying at the hands of a psycho. They're out there to make sure that anything that's anti-gun won't pass. Because of this, we're probably going to have more disasters where young kids are killed over somebody's mental problems.

But there's some good news: 2014's not too far down the road. Let's get rid of all the Repukes and give this country back to the people.
