ELECTED OFFICIALS: PEOPLE IN ORLANDO DON’T WHAT YOUR FUCKING PRAYERS & THOUGHTS – THEY WANT ACTION ON COMMON SENSE GUN LAWS

Elected official, especially Republicans, the people of Orlando do not want your fucking prayers & thoughts, in fact stick them far up you colon. It is always the same shit after a shooting. Prayers & thoughts and no damn action. Because elected officials do not have the fucking balls to stand up to the NRA and to do the right thing and Democrats grow some fucking balls and don’t compromise on this.

In the article below:

After more than 14 hours, Sen. Chris Murphy ended a filibuster and said he had secured a chance to end the frustrating lack of action on gun violence. The Connecticut Democrat tweeted at 1:53 a.m. Thursday that there will be a vote “on closing the terror gap & universal background checks.”

This is what I mean, no balls and don’t compromise. What about the most important part of this, the banning of all assault weapons like the AK-15, which was used in the Orlando massacre.

GROW BALLS!

Hell, even Bill O’Reilly criticized Republicans on this issue (and of course Democrats, you did not think he would not), but I was surprised to hear him take on Republicans. Now that is what you call “fair & balanced”, not the normal dreck from him and Fox.

The Daily News:

Sen. Murphy filibuster ends after 14 hours, says there will be vote on gun legislation

 

Filibuster Ends With Sandy Hook Victim’s Story

After more than 14 hours, Sen. Chris Murphy ended a filibuster and said he had secured a chance to end the frustrating lack of action on gun violence.

The Connecticut Democrat tweeted at 1:53 a.m. Thursday that there will be a vote “on closing the terror gap & universal background checks.”

Murphy’s filibuster, in which he was joined by fellow Democrats including Sens. Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand, began at 11:20 a.m. Wednesday.

The senator said that he had chosen to hold his filibuster to demand attention for “the two least controversial” gun control measures: California Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s bill preventing those on the terrorist no-fly list from buying weapons and the expansion of background checks to gunshows and all Internet purchases.

AMA says gun violence a ‘public health crisis’

Many members of the upper house joined their freshman colleague during the stand, giving speeches about the effect of gun violence in their states, the horror of Sunday morning’s massacre in Orlando that killed 49 and previous shootings such as the slaughter of schoolchildren in Newtown, Conn., which Murphy previously represented in the House.

Murphy had said earlier in the day that he would remain on the Senate floor “until we get some signal, some sign that we can come together on these two measures, that we can get a path forward on addressing this epidemic in a meaningful, bipartisan way.”

It was not immediately clear what sort of agreement occurred to prompt the senators to end their marathon debate shortly after 2 a.m., though near the end of the discussion lawmakers were congratulating each other on making a step towards achieving their goal.

Murphy ended the discussion by holding up a picture of slain Sandy Hook Elementary student Dylan Hockley, who was six when he was shot dead by Adam Lanza.

Clinton to Trump: Muslim ban, wall wouldn’t have stopped Orlando

Feinstein’s terror watch list proposal was previously offered as an amendment in December after the San Bernardino shooting, though it was voted down by Senate Republicans.

Calls for the common-sense measure were renewed after the tragic attack on Orlando’s Pulse nighclub, as gunman Omar Mateen was previously on a government watchlist in 2013 while being investigated for possible involvement in terrorist activities.

He was taken off the list when the investigations resulted in no charges, and was able to buy weapons including an assault-style rifle shortly before his attack.

Feinstein’s Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act was quickly dismissed last year, and it still seems unlikely that opposition to the bill will cave after the filibuster. However, some Senate Republicans in tough reelection races have hinted that they may support a watered-down version.

Trump to meet with NRA about gun buy ban for terror list people

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, who has styled himself as a pro-gun advocate with an endorsement from the NRA, tweeted Wednesday that he was going to meet with the group “about not allowing people on the terrorist watch list, or the no fly list, to buy guns.”
