Two Democratic Senators, in a speech, today, on the Senate floor, have asked the question, "Why, when an overwhelming majority of Americans, including an overwhelming majority of gun owners, are in favor of common sense gun reforms such as expanding background check and restricting access, by suspected terrorists, to semi-automatic weapons, there has been no action by the legislature in the matter"?
Republican legislators, in ridiculing that question, have responded, with a question of their own: "What's in it for them?". After all, there are at least $22 million reasons, provided by the N.R.A. , to block any reforms, so what are the American people offering them?
The matter of gun reform legislation can easily be resolved by reform proponents collecting funds to outbid the N.R.A. After all, as everyone knows, you get what you pay for.
