Letter: Senators are bought and paid for by NRA

Senators are owned by NRA

EDITOR: The right to bear arms, to own guns, should not trump the right to live. The massacres at Columbine High School; in Aurora, Colo.; in Tucson, Ariz., where U.S. Rep. Gabby Giffords was shot; and at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., should have proven to most sensible people that easier access to more powerful guns do not save lives. It costs more and more innocent lives.

The background checks bill that failed in the U.S. Senate last week was weak at best and yet 46 senators including U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson were cowards and voted no. Why? None of them could offer a sound reason. It was already a fairly weak bill.

They all have been bought and paid for by the National Rifle Association. The NRA doesn't care about anything but making money from gun manufacturers and misguided gun owners. It is a disgrace to the memory of the children lost at Sandy Hook that these senators voted no. It is time to vote out the people who do not honor the wishes of the majority of Americans. We need better representation!
