Lawmakers need to stop prostituting themselves to the gun lobby

So far this year we have had the Las Vegas and Texas church massacres and all our congressional folks can do is send their thoughts and prayers to the families and victims of those atrocious acts. Well, to that I say bull fritters. They need to stop praying and thinking and get off their sorry backsides and stop prostituting themselves to the gun lobby and save the citizens they took an oath to work for and protect.

For example, the bump stocks that make these weapons of mass destruction fully automatic, all they've done is say, "We need to take a look at it." Take a look at it? Common sense tells you that something needs to be done about it immediately.

Otherwise, we as voters need to recall what Mark Twain said: "Politicians and diapers must be changed often, and for the same reason."
