A few minutes ago a minority in the US Senate decided that (gun control) wasn't worth it. They blocked common sense reforms even while these families looked on from the Senate gallery.

We're talking about convicted felons, people convicted of domestic violence, people with severe mental illness.
90% of Americans support that idea. Most American's think that is already the law. And a few minutes ago 90% of Democrats voted in the senate for that idea.
But it's not going to happen because 90% of Republicans in the senate voted against that idea.
