Welcome to “Democracy” – Where the Minority Rules

  • 90% of Americans are in favor of expanded background checks on gun purchasers. 
  • 54% of the Senate voted in favor of the Manchin-Toomey Amendment
  • 46% of the Senate voted against the Amendment
  • Amendment defeated.

When the next Newtown or Columbine or Virginia Tech happens, remember these Senators who failed to enact a moderate, common-sense measure.
