    Article: Democrat on Las Vegas shooting massacre: 'Time for Congress to get off its a-- and do something'

    "Following the shooting, some top Democrats — often proponents of tighter restrictions on guns — urged the Republican-controlled Congress to take action to prevent similar mass shootings.


    "This must stop. It is positively infuriating that my colleagues in Congress are so afraid of the gun industry that they pretend there aren't public policy responses to this epidemic," said Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., in a statement. "There are, and the thoughts and prayers of politicians are cruelly hollow if they are paired with continued legislative indifference. It's time for Congress to get off its a-- and do something.
    "

    Well it certainly didn't take long for the buzzards-D to form up and start picking the corpses clean of any politically advantageous morsels they could get their bloody beaks on.

    One wonders why the Democrats didn't pass any of this gun control legislation back when they had a lock on Congress in 2009, guess there wasn't any political advantage in it for 'em then. :cool:

    And it certainly didn't take long for people like you to cry foul when Democrats try to put the issue front and center that at the very least caused the high fatality rate. I wonder why Republicans never have a problem politicizing a shooting when Muslims are involved?

    Or alternatively they didn't have the votes on gun law reform. Seems like a reasonable assumption after last weeks health care debacle I would think.

    Must be the same phenomenon that has so deeply affected the gun control nutland otherwise known as CHICAGO.

    Apparently lawbreakers in both locals share the same disregard for the law, which of course the buzzards feel can be resolved by passing more laws. :rolleyes:
