The 46 second-amendment-distorting, weapon-loving, non-compromising, folks who should lose their Senate seats.

Here are the 46 Senators who are either too dogmatically tied to their firearms, too spineless to stand up to the NRA, or both to vote in favor of expanded background checks. I have no problem with guns. My view of the 2nd amendment is so narrowly accepted that I don’t even ask you to side with me. I know that the fact the guns scare me is my problem, not the gun’s problem. But, we are not even talking about limiting guns or even expanding the  already bloated array of firearms regulation. All we are talking about is background checks. Even that, they can’t support because they are either too wimpy or to scared to even move a millimeter away from their right-wing, second amendment dogma.  In red are the names of the 4 Dems who don’t even have their political philosophy to fall back on. No one wanted to take away your damn guns, people. All we wanted was a minimal application of reason and a teeny-tiny itty-bitty attempt at compromise. To say I’m disheartened is a monumental understatement.
