Gun Control: A Congress of Cowards – YouTube.

I do not know if I buy the 80-90% figure from Fred Allen as far as Americans who are in favor of gun control. But if I had to guess I would say there’s probably a solid majority of people who support what I call commonsense gun control. That’s designed to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and the mentally ill with a basic background check to make sure people who are trying to purchase. Firearms in the United States aren’t criminals or lets say mental patients people with severe mental handicaps. Who act on those emotions and have violent tendencies that we’ve seen from the shooters over the last two years with these horrible shootings. Not designed to keep guns out of private hands all together in this country that would never pass in Congress and would be Unconstitutional. On its face but the fact is commonsense is not in charge of Congress right now but the Far-Right as well as Libertarians who are against any types of restrictions. On firearms in this country are in charge and the Republican Party is not in position to take them on or are vulnerable Democrats in. Congress who represent red states and are up for reelection in 2014.
