Did the Republican senate ignore Americans, just to spite Obama?


In the recent failure to pass new background checks for gun purchases, the Republican senate ignored the overwhelming support of the American citizens to pass this bill. This was done because they thought that a bipartisan passing of this bill would be viewed as a victory for President Obama. Many Republican Senators were in favor of it, but voted "no" per instruction of senate leaders. Are their resentments going too far?

    Republicans must not have gotten the memo in 2nd grade that said that,"no one likes a sore loser or a bully". If they keep it up, their closest competition in the next election will be the Libertarian Party.

    So, what was the issue with the Democrat Senators who voted against it? Are they racists perhaps?

    And they wonder why no one trusts them and they just can't get any traction with the public?

    If you knew so much, you would know it took 60 votes to pass and Dems don't have that kind of control. My agenda is to improve the safety of Americans. Not the safety of some grumpy Republican's job. Thx for a typical, Republican answer.

    No one said this would solve anything. But you have to start somewhere. We will never eradicate gun violence. But we can minimize it. I'm willing to have my rights "hampered" if it saves some lives. It's not a ban. It's regulation like abortion has.
