The stinky Republicans in Washington’s Senate were not moved a fraction of a hair by the recent domestic violence shooting in San Bernardino, California, in which an innocent little kid was murdered by a domestic abuser with a gun.
Cold-hearted and gun-loving Republican senators failed to take a vote on House Bill 1501, the Law Enforcement and Victim Notification bill, before this session’s legislative cut-off.
The bipartisan legislation overwhelmingly passed the House of Representatives and made it all the way to the floor of the Senate. It would have notified police and victims when felons, domestic abusers and other prohibited purchasers try and fail to buy a gun. But gun-loving and kid-hating Republicans balked.
Shame on you, Republicans!
