Inaction on guns is sad

I was very disappointed to see that the ban on military-style weapons and their massive ammunition clips is not even going to be put up for a vote. Apparently, there are many people in the Senate that have very short memories. They have forgotten the terror that people in Newtown, Conn., went through. Either that, or they just don’t care.

In some states there was legislation that people were to consider that would require women who want to have an abortion be made to view their unborn fetus using a vaginal probe so they could see what they were aborting. Well, I think maybe the members of Congress should see through the autopsy photos, what was done to these little 6- and 7-year-old children, and then decide whether they want to stick with the National Rifle Association, and say that they don’t care how many rounds of ammunition enter the bodies of the next victims of a mass shooting.

If we, as a country, cannot protect our own children from these maniacs who can purchase and use these weapons of war, then we are a sad lot indeed.
