List of Senators who Voted Against Gun Control Bill

2013-04-18 08:56:07

-by Drew Kolar, Editor

The United States Senate made it clear yesterday that they are on the side of the National Rifle Association (NRA) when the majority voted against a bill that was meant "to protect Second Amendment rights, ensure that all individuals who should be prohibited from buying a firearm are listed in the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, and provide a responsible and consistent background check process," according to the Senate's website.

AllMediaNY now urges our readers who are in favor of the bill to take action and respond to those senators opposed it. This bill, if you will recall, came about in the wake of the tragedy that occurred at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., during which a gunman killed 20 children and six adults in late December, just before Christmas.

It has been clear that the nation is in need of a major reform when it comes to gun control and safety. As Vice President Joe Biden has said, it is also obvious that the public is "far ahead" of officials on gun control legislation—we know that this country needs a better system of regulating guns, yet it seems the senate is set in their ways of appeasing the NRA and those who have not yet seen how dangerous our loose gun laws can be.

Please take some time out of your day to contact your senator and urge them to change their mind. This country is in serious need of reform when it comes to firearms, and it all starts with citizens like us. Below is a list of the senators who voted against this bill (Note: This list comes directly from Senate.gov):
