Shameless in the Senate

Prior to yesterday's Senate vote on advancing a gun-control measure to debate, family members of victims from the Sandy Hook shooting put on a big show. They produced pictures of the victims. They told stories about loss. They pulled out all the stops.

Then the Senate voted advancing on the bill.

At the time of the vote the Senate did not know the contents of the bill. It was not released until later. They did know one important thing about it, though - the bill would not have stopped the Sandy Hook shooting and it is unlikely to stop future mass shootings.

This was shameless exploitation of the dead to advance an anti-gun agenda.
