Injustice in the House of Representatives

How is it possible that Republicans refuse to allow a vote on whether terrorists should be allowed to buy guns and explosives?

All day yesterday and again today, these NRA-owned old men refuse to stand up and vote or to let anyone else vote.  For example, there's Dana Rohrabacher in Costa Mesa, where I used to live.

Thanks a bunch, guys.

May you rot in Hell.

Hooray for Rep. Mike Thompson of St. Helena, who led some of the efforts.

My hero is Rep. Jackie Speier, who was shot five times in the Jonestown Massacre in 1978 as part of a team led by Rep. Leo Ryan to investigate a cult led by a nut called Jim Jones.  Ryan was killed.

If Jackie Speier says we need to vote on whether people on the FBI terrorist watch list should be allowed to buy guns, we should listen.  

She knows what she's talking about.
