A man of compassion expressing his disgust and disappointment yesterday, President Obama spoke in a press conference about the Senate’s failure to pass a sensible law that would require background checks for all people who buy guns.
The grief of the families who have lost loved ones to gun violence was palpable through the television. The resolve and commitment of all those who worked for greater, sensible laws continue. Hopefully, in the future, our leaders will make decisions that actually represent their constituents’ views, and protect innocent citizens, instead of decisions they believe will protect their own jobs.
