    The Senate is not going to reflect where the American people are. The Republicans will oppose anything from the Dems just on ‘principle’.

    Where the American people are? In big trouble, I would say.

    Worth breaking the filibuster over indeed

  4. Thoughts and prayers aren’t working. Something needs to be done. The Senate is likely to shoot down any gun restrictions. I haven’t seen anything from either side addressing the real issue, mental health. Ever seen a PSA from the NRA addressing mental health issues and giving these potential murderers any options to get help? Nope. See you tomorrow for more thoughts and prayers!

  5. Most of the rest of civilised, developed countries don’t have their population running around with guns! Catch up!

  6. The USA is pretty far gone at this point. There are more guns in our country than people. At this point, we’re shutting the barn door after the horse has escaped. But we MUST work to enforce sane gun regulation and comprehensive background checks to save our country.

    • Spoken like a true foreigner.

      war is inevitable at this point

      Absolutely. Sane gun regulations are necessary. Guns are in the wrong hands more and more.

      In Australia, gun laws were changed drastically after a mass shooting. Australians wanted this and the government saw that.
      In the US Americans want better gun control and politicians know it. The government won’t react to the will of the people.

    America always end up doing the right thing after trying every other option first.

    And the head of the NRA LaPierre? Hiding out on a yacht for protection. I guess he doesn’t believe that guns work either 🤣


  10. America is moving on, past the GOP, because they’re stuck in the 60’s and 70’s where that kind of thinking doesn’t work anymore. They’re going to destroy themselves. Let’s just wait and watch it happen. It should be entertaining.

    Yeah, trying to get the GOP to ANYTHING is exactly like Talking to a BRICK WALL… No Action and NO Response…. They are USELESS…

    Call it a massacre, not a shooting.

  13. WHERE ARE THE “GOOD GUY WITH A GUN”!?!?!??!?!?!?!!? 😛

  14. As long as the cartoon villain Republicans are involved and the NRA raking in cash they will never want gun safety or laws.

    Maybe a different approach because some people are going to oppose everything just to be contrary.

  16. Jerry Walker | April 16, 2021 at 8:04 PM | Reply

    This country should have a national day of prayer. To date Washington DC has been in a stalemate with taking action but prayer can change things

  17. 147 mass shootings in this year…does anything thing more need be said …

    Since when has the Senate EVER reflected “where the American people are..?”

  19. turntableone | April 16, 2021 at 8:55 PM | Reply

    Did anyone check out that map? Texas had a large number of mass shootings this year alone.

    Nobody is interested in what a Pinko’s Swalwell and Fang-Fang want.
