Gun Control Legislation Has Me Asking Georgia Senators, “What’d I Miss”?

nolawnobreakEvery 9 out of 10 Americans believe that anyone on a government terror Watch List should not be permitted to buy an AR-15 assault weapon. It is time for Georgia Senators Isakson and Perdue to listen to the people. It is time for them to listen to Republicans and Democrats who want background checks and want to keep guns out of the hands of suspected terrorists.  Many polls show gun owners agree with increased national gun control measures.Who are Senator Isakson and Senator Perdue representing? And why?

If Senator Lindsay Graham gets it and has stepped forward to support Senator Susan Collins’ legislation it is time for Georgia’s Senators to wake up to the reality they are not operating consistent with the beliefs of most of their constituents. As Daveed Diggs’s Lafayette sings in the hit Broadway play, Hamilton, “What’d I miss”. Well, it seems Senator Isakson and Perdue “have  missed” that Georgians and Americans  believe their safety requires federal law with tighter gun control and expanded background checks.

It is time to suspend partisan politics, Senators.

  1. Very proud of John Lewis & Democratic leadership for stepping up by sitting down.

    Still waiting for your response… (crickets in background)

    Nearly six days have passed since I asked for the source of the statistic you quoted.You haven’t responded and I expect you will not. All readers should now assume that you contrived the statistic, and should be wary of all future statistics you may throw out, unless you quote your source.

  5. Burroughston,
    I linked the Washington Post article. Will check again. I like you am wary of lots that is published and discussed. What I am sure about is we must stop the violence witnessed too many days in American cities. Shirley
