After today I am never going to blog about guns ever again. I promise.
Yesterday the Republicans in the Senate voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act (yes again) and to defund Planned Parenthood.
On the same day all the Republicans except one (1) voted against measures to strengthen gun control laws.
The Senate rejected an amendment that would deny people on the federal terrorism watch list the ability to purchase guns. It also rejected an amendment that would expand background checks for guns purchased online and at gun shows. It also rejected an amendment that would have delayed suspected terrorists from getting a gun for as long as 72 hours.
Suspected terrorists can buy guns? Congress is OK with this?
Anyway at least all the Republican presidential candidates prayed a lot for the latest victims and their relatives. They did rather more praying than they did for the Planned Parenthood victims - when there was a deafening silence in Republican land.
Carly Fiorina said the first thing she did when she heard about the shooting was pray. As we all know prayer works wonders.
I wonder if it can cure Carly from being a congenital liar? I will pray for that but I am not confident.
