When are we going to stop beating around the bush and tell the plain truth; 90 percent — 9 of 10 Americans — want more gun control laws in an attempt to curtail some of the senseless killings in this country.

And 90 percent of Democrats in Congress appear to want this law enacted, while it appears 90 percent of the Republicans in Congress bow down to the National Rifle Association gun lobby and vote whatever way they are told to vote by this membership.

The only way to overcome this is for the American public to vote out as many of those politicians worried about their re-election campaign funds as possible. The only way this is going to happen is when the media groups around this nation start printing the names of the representatives and senators who voted against the wishes of 9 out of every 10 American voters, and voters take the list into the voting booths and begin the process that our frightened politicians are to afraid to do.
