It seems that the GOP is on the wrong side of yet another issue important to U.S. voters. 85% of us want congress to act to keep guns out of the hands of terrorists. So what does the GOP do? As usual they prevent it from happening.
I have heard their argument that the proposed bill might prevent someone who is not a terrorist from purchasing as many guns and ammunition as he wants. The GOP seem to be willing to sacrifice thousands of us to prevent that from happening!
Sooner or later the ones still clinging to the ultra conservative cause will finally realize that they are riding a dead horse and abandon it. Our obsession with guns has resulted in many times more deaths than 911 ever did.
Sooner or later the ones still clinging to the ultra conservative cause will realize that the NRA is nothing more than a lobbying organization for the gun manufacturers. I will admit that it was brilliant to get 5 million people to purchase memberships so it can be called a club but it is really no different than any other lobbying organization in that it protects those who pay their salaries and that is the ones who profit from gun sales. The NRA membership make up about 1.5% of the U.S. population, so how do they yield so much power. They do it by attacking viciously anyone opposing them. Sounds kind of like one of our presidential candidates doesn’t it?
A lot of stuff needs to change in the world today and much of it is right here in our country. Before closing this post I need to get in a little snippet about Great Britain leaving the EU which is yet another conservative cause that is simply wrong headed in my mind. We, as a world, need to be coming together instead of splitting apart. It is the only way we will ever see the 22nd century. Our world is just too small now for all of us to go our own ways…..
