So...mere hours before the San Bernadino massacre, a group of doctors delivered a petition signed by over 2,000 physicians, urging Congress to end the decades-old ban that prevents the CDC from conducting public health research on gun violence.
Today, Democrats in the Senate tried to pass a measure to require background checks on people purchasing guns at gun shows and online....it was blocked by Republicans.
Also today, Democrats in the Senate tried to pass a measure to block people on the Terror Watch List - people about whom the FBI have Concerns - from buying guns. Republicans blocked this as well.
How much clearer does it have to get, Mamas?
Find out where candidates stand on gun control before you vote and if they do not support measures to keep guns out of the hands of terrorists, people with criminal backgrounds and toddlers, then do not vote for them. No matter what. No matter what. We can vote in sensible gun reforms if we make it a top priority. Get registered to vote, look up their records and vote the gun freaks out of office. NOW.
Vote, Mamas. Vote.
