Yesterday it became depressingly clear that the assault weapon ban won’t be in the Senate gun measure.
Hey Congress members, here’s an idea: Put yourselves on record and vote. I’m talking to both Democrats and Republicans, I want to know who you are, which of you is allowing the gun industry to dictate your actions, which of you is making them the priority instead of the lives of Americans, which of you is ignoring what we have made pretty obvious:
Let the majority of Americans who support an assault weapons ban and a limit on the number of rounds in a magazine see who is voting against their wishes. Go ahead, we dare you.
UPDATE: TELL SEN. HARRY REID you want a vote on the Assault Weapons Ban. Here is his number: (202) 224-3542. Make every senator vote.
UPDATE via The Hill:
White House chief of staff Denis McDonough said the White House would “find the votes” to pass the ban.
