Clearly, our legislators are unable to come to any meaningful agreement over gun control. The Republicans continue to obstruct legislation.
June 6, 2022: (CNN) "As Congress considers, again, the possibility of moving a package of gun control reforms, a number from a new CBS News/YouGov poll jumped out at ... as evidence of why solving America's gun violence problem is so hard.
It's this: 44% of Republicans said that mass shootings are something we have to accept as part of a free society. (A majority of Republicans -- 56% -- said mass shootings are something we can prevent and stop if we really tried.)
That number is a striking departure from how the country as a whole views the issue. More than 7 in 10 Americans (72%) said that mass shootings could be prevented if we really tried, while just 28% said they were part of living in a free society."
This is why the President has to take this in his own hands and sign an executive order to ban assault weapons - as a start.
