I’m emailing this to every Senator who voted against background check reform and you can too!
I am writing to express my extreme disappointment in your vote against gun control reform. I’ve always been under the impression that America is supposed to be a great country with great leaders (hey, that’s you!), and I can honestly say that actions such as this really make me seriously re-think whether it is, or you are.
The fact that anyone can buy a gun at a gun show, or on the Internet, scares the hell out of me. It terrifies me. In fact, my top three fears are guns, snakes, and poisonous spiders, in that order. I’m pretty sure you can’t do anything about snakes or spiders, but guns – guns you can do. You know, it must be nice for you to work in a place that feels secure, because the rest of us certainly don’t have that privilege.
And don’t say that there might be a gun registry created, because there won’t be. And don’t say that the paperwork is too much, because owning a weapon that can kill anyone at anytime SHOULD require some paperwork. And, this is a tough one for you all, I know, but oh my God, stop bowing down to an organization like the NRA that the majority of sane citizens see as extremely radical just because they have money. Gary Busey has money, would you do whatever Gary Busey said because he’d threaten to withdraw campaign contributions? I wouldn’t.
But here’s the thing – remember what I said about America earlier? You can still be those leaders. Please, please take this opportunity to prevent criminals and the mentally unstable from being able to purchase guns legally. There’s a part of me that is incredibly surprised that I have to beg you to do that, but c’est la vie.
An extremely concerned by hopeful citizen,
