A minority of Senators managed to use the dreaded filibuster to block the Manchin-Toomey bill to increase background checks for purchasing guns.

The NRA made unsubstantiated claims about the bipartisan bill, one of those being that the bill would lead to a national gun registry.

Republican Senators Collins (ME), Kirk (IL), McCain (AZ), and sponsor Toomey (PA) voted in favor of the bill. Democrat Senators Baucus (MT), Begich (AK), Heitkamp (ND), and Pryor (AR) opposerd the bill, puportedly on principle.

The President suggested that voters in support of the bill tell their Senators exactly how they feel and that they won’t forget the feeling come election time.
Whatever the issue, the only way these politicians will hear anything is by voting their cronies out and threatening to do the same to you when their terms are up. Stricter gun laws, reform of the fraud-laden welfare system, trimming of pork…whatever your issue make your votes matter so these people stop taking us for granted.
