It is vexing to see the controversy surrounding gun laws, even though 85 percent of the public and 75 percent of lawful gun owners like myself want sensible restrictions on insane loopholes. Lawmakers cannot get their act together even on something as critical as universal background checks because of their greed and obedience to the NRA and gun manufacturers.
Whatever happened to our democracy in which the majority rules? How can we ever claim the moral high ground, making great sacrifices to restore democracy in other countries without getting our house in order?
