One of our Senators from South Carolina voted to allow the proposed gun control bill to move forward. Sen. Lindsey Graham voted yes.
I have no idea why he would want to do this. First off, the bill does nothing. It’s like being upset about drunken drivers causing automobile accidents and passing a bill to restrict where you buy your car.
If Sen. Graham really wants to do something positive, he should start a discussion about the real issues and figure out how and why that lunatic up in Newtown did what he did. Instead of voting yes for this bill he needs to be working to make some real constructive suggestions and work to pass real legislation to indentify and if necessary commit someone who is obviously in need of help. Both this guy from Newtown and the Virginia Tech shooter were known to have issues. There’s the problem. People have issues and we don’t do anything.
It’s not the number of bullets the gun has or if it was purchased at a gun show. The problem is some people have serious problems and we are too chicken to do anything about it. What it comes down to is it makes better press to vote for this gun control bill and it is less work for our senator. Come on, Sen. Graham, focus on the real issue.
