Does Congress care about the lives of our children?

 |  NCR Today

Baltimore Sun columnist Dan Rodricks has again written eloquently on where the gun legislation issue is in Congress. 

Here's a snippet from his spot-on analysis

"A little more than three months after one of the most horrible mass killing in the nation's history — the shooting of 20 children and six adults in Connecticut — there are fewer than 40 Senate votes for restoration of a federal ban on military-style assault weapons like the one Adam Lanza used inside Sandy Hook Elementary School.

"Senators, including many Democrats, have been unmoved by the tragedy at Sandy Hook. Apparently, not even the testimony of parents of the murdered first-graders affected them."

Rodricks deserves a wider audience for his views. I recommend his article to your attention.
