The Republican Party rejects background checks on guns
Senator Ron Johnson, of our state of Wisconsin, has blood on his hands, along with other Republican Senators. He seemed that doing the bidding of the gun makers (the major benefactors of the NRA) by voting against universal background checks on all gun sales in America, was more important then listening to the 90% of Americans and Wisconsites who want full background checks.
Indeed, 80% of NRA members supported universal background checks. So if you are a criminal who wants to buy a gun from a non-federally licensed gun dealer in many states, be rest assured, Senator Johnson and most of the Republican party has your back. They will ensure your ability to keep buying guns, either to commit violence or sell these guns to fellow criminals on the street.
That Johnson is one of our two U.S. Senators is a disgrace and embarrasment. If this doesn't motivate people to ensure that he is only a one term Senator, nothing will.
If you want to support reasonable gun control please think about joing the Brady Campaign, and other organizations that support gun rights, but also work to ensure that violent criminals can't buy guns at their leisure.
