US Senate fails to pass any gun control laws

Among many other things, I'm beyond puzzled as to why there is such opposition to requiring a background check on ALL gun purchases within the United States.  Perhaps there are many fearful gun zealots that don't think they couldn't pass the screening?  Or it could be that they fear the National Rife Association?

Clearly some of these votes to restrict access to guns, assault rifles and large ammunition clips would not stop ALL of the gun violence, which epidemic in this country.  However if it could even slow it down just a hair it would be a move in the right direction.  Simply adding more guns to an already violent nation isn't the answer. Too often "good guys" do bad or stupid things.  

Learn more about yesterday's voting by visiting How the Senate gun control amendments fared c/o the Washington Post. As Senator Gabrielle Giffords noted "It's clear to me that if members of the U.S. Senate refuse to change the laws to reduce gun violence, then we need to change the members of the U.S. Senate."

Emboldened by the National Rifle Association's victory rumor has it a new media campaign has begun, sponsored by the combined forces of the NGA (National Grenade Association) and the NBA (National Bomb Association)....

Rifles are for Wimps: Go BIG or go Home
