Which lobby makes House members and Senators dance the most? The gun lobby. Many Democratic Senators and Congressmen, and virtually ALL Republican officeholders are in the pocket of the Big Gun lobby.
Let us examine.
At an Orlando (Fla) dance club 100+ people are murdered or injured in a horrific shooting by a lunatic homophobe who claims to be representing ISIS terrorists.
In response, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) has re-introduced an earlier bill to keep people on a government terrorism watch list, or other suspected terrorists, from buying guns.
The Republican response, here represented by Sen. John Corwin (R-Tex): Make suspected terrorists wait 72 hours to purchase weapons.
To repeat. Terrorists would have to wait 72 hours to get guns.
