A shameful moment in the Senate

Like The National Rifle Association, many parts of the entertainment industry and legislative bodies are driven by money and power. It does not seem to matter in these modern times of the damage this is causing to our civilization. The long arms of the NRA are more powerful than the presidency — 90 percent of the American people and those leaders in Washington who want sensible gun control. It seems the government is no longer for the people; it is for the NRA. The gun control bill failed in the Senate on April 17. This was a slap in the face to all the parents who have lost children from gun violence and those who survived senseless shootings. The shame of the failure to put forward a reasonable gun control bill in the Senate exists in the votes made by those senators who are more concerned about the NRA than the American people.
