Introduction

Enough is enough. Politics has been played for too long in our country. To the point where we loose sight of what it is all about. Legislators are suppose to legislate. When there is a needed common sense law, we need to pass it.

- July 2017

Background

Whether you are a Republican or a Democrat or an Independent or a Socialist, you are first and foremost an American. As Americans, we need to protect our country, our borders and our people. Kate's law is just that. A simple, common sense law, designed to protect average citizens going about our business.

After two years in the making, this law has finally pased the House of representatives. Now it is up to the 100 Senators to do their part. Which Senator will obstruct this bill? I want to hear his or her defense...what is the argument against this law?

If there is no good case, why would they not vote for it, contrary to the wishes of their constituents?

Hall of Shame...

Here are all Democrat Senators who oppose this bill.

The Senate minority leader is Chuck Schumer of NY. Democrat.

Some Reasons Given...

A quote taken from a DailyBeast article on why Kate's law was a bad idea.

"But in the process, America’s prison population skyrocketed, doing outsize damage to African-American communities—as well as state and federal budgets. Mass incarceration doesn’t come cheap, and that was why conservative legislators in Texas started moved to overhaul the state’s criminal justice system back in 2007—it was getting too expensive to lock up that many people..."

So let me get this straight, some think Kate's law is a bad idea because it will increase prison population and cost too much...

Summary

This is a simple issue. There are no hidden clauses. It is not complicated. Any person with a reading level of 4th grade and read this bill and understand it. I want to see this bill passed this year in 2017.

Elections should have consequences.
