Democratic fingerprints on fate of gun control bill

info@islandpacket.comApril 28, 2013 

The author of a recent letter on gun control legislation seems to be unaware of a couple of facts.

The Senate majority is made up of Democrats. The bill didn't pass because too many Democratic senators are up for re-election in 2014. They have a difficult road ahead since the constituents of their states are not happy with the gun control bill (which is a very slippery slope) nor the fiasco that is Obamacare, which was forced on them and written behind closed doors. Also, did the writer ever consider how many Bostonians wished they had a gun when they were in lockdown and the bombers were on the loose.

Stop the Republican blame game. It's getting old.
