Dutch -- According to Pew Research, only "three-in-ten American adults (30%) say they personally own a gun, and an additional 11% say they live with someone who does."
"86% of Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents say gun laws should be stricter, while 31% of Republicans and GOP leaners say the same."
"Around nine-in-ten Republicans and Republican-leaning independents (92%) and Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents (91%) say they favor preventing people with mental illnesses from buying guns. And large majorities of both Democrats (93%) and Republicans (82%) favor background checks for private gun sales and sales at gun shows."
Yet Congress is powerless to enact laws because the Republican Party blocks all gun safety legislation using the filibuster (60 vote threshold). The Republican Party elected officials in Congress are subsidized by blood money from the NRA and gun manufacturers. People like Ted Cruz lead the list of benefactors.
These lawmakers receive the most campaign money from gun-rights backers like the NRA
Republicans like Cruz and his ilk have a lack of empathy for victims of gun violence. They only care about their donors. Follow the money...blood money.
