Disgusted with gun control vote

April 20, 2013 

I just sent this to one of our senators: Please share my email with all those in the Senate who voted against expanded background checks. I am a retired veteran, the sister of a Stockton Police Department cop, and am writing to you from the heart of Republican territory in California.

How dare you, the elected officials, block passage of this legislation. You have been elected to represent the people and the people have spoken.

We are in favor of expanded background checks. I do not believe that the people ever expected this loophole to be, let alone continue.

You have failed in your sworn duty to represent the people. You have been bought and sold.

You have put your careers ahead of the people and you should be ashamed. In fact, this should be referred to the ethics committee and you should be forced to resign, without your bloated retirement.
