Senators Pat Toomey and Joe Manchin should be congratulated for their efforts to introduce rational gun regulations.
Unfortunately, due to the paranoia, misconceptions, and deceits perpetuated by gun lobbyists like the NRA, their efforts were defeated.
Apparently, some Senators are more afraid of what the NRA thinks than what 90 percent of Americans believe.
Where in our Constitution does it say that Wayne LaPierre dictates how a supposed representative of the people should vote?
The NRA represents a myriad if foreign and domestic interest. Do any of the current NRA supporters actually believe that Benelli, Beretta, Browning Arms, Glock, Heckler & Koch, Holland & Holland, Mauser, U.S. Repeating Arms Company USRAC, Winchester Repeating Arms Company, Walther, SAKO, Steyr Mannlicher, SIG Sauer, Walther, Valmet, manufactures of AK-47's or any one of the other 145 FORIGN armament manufactures really care about the 2nd amendment?
Do the 51 USA armament manufacturers care about the 2nd A?
It's all about money.
What a sick pathetic country we have become that puts MONEY and the confusing words "A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed" above the rights of its children to a free and safe life.
When does it end? When everyone has a WMD ready for the supposed bad guy?
