From Kristina Chew on care2com, April 17, 2013: "86 percent of Americans are in favor of expanded background checks on guns. But on Wednesday, the Senate failed to pass a bipartisan plan by a vote of   54-46, just six short of the votes needed to clear the chamber."

The NRA and other gun rights supporters think that "violence is best addressed with violence" and vowed to defeat any Senator who voted for the proposal to expand background checks.

Many of us (86 percent) can still think logically. E.g., More guns in the hands of people who shouldn't have them is a bad idea. This incident is illustrative of how corrupted by special interests our political system has become. We are not longer represented by our elected representatives. In the place of the rational contract -- representatives represent those who elect them -- we have a topsy turvy madness, fueled by profit driven main stream media and the politicians' need to fund outrageously expensive campaigns. Put this hodge podge of factors in a bowl and mix vigorously and we get these headlines from our politicians, religious leaders and political pundits:
