Harry the Wimp

                                         Senator Harry Reid and majority leader in the U.S. Senate.

Harry the Wimp!   That is all I can say at this point.  Yesterday, you made the decision NOT to allow Senator Dianne Feinstein's bill on banning automatic weapons on the streets of America to go forward in the Senate.  ARE YOU SERIOUS?  After the Sandy Hook massacre and your own colleague Gabby Giffords being shot and her valiant effort to come back from "death", how can you, in good conscience, not back gun control in this country?

Your job is to back fellow Democrats' bills in the Senate.  Are you also financially backed by the NRA?  I know you are a gun owner, but how can you look at the parents of the Sandy Hook children massacred in the eye?  How can you live with yourself, when THE MAJORITY OF AMERICANS WANT GUN CONTROL IN THIS COUNTRY?

I cannot believe you when you say you can not get enough votes to pass this important legislation.  It is your job to get those votes.  Start calling in your IOU's.  You are allowing the evilness of man to overtake common sense and what 200 million Americans want in this country.  You are not working for THE PEOPLE;  THE MAJORITY OF THE PEOPLE IN AMERICA.

Do I have to remind you that this is suppose to be government OF THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE AND FOR THE PEOPLE?  I have lost all faith in the U.S. government at this point.  That you would allow the NRA to run this country when it comes to gun control is pathetic.

I am finally convinced that greed, power, and narcissism has taken over you and your colleagues in the Senate, House of Representatives and the entire U.S. government.  I am floored and saddened that the Democrats are following your wimpy lead.  I can only hope you are voted and turned out of office.  I cannot believe you are not standing up for what is right and for children's and all Americans' safety.

The second amendment of the U.S. constitution does not prohibit a ban on automatic weapons.  There is no reason for any American to have and to own a weapon of this magnitude and power.  No one needs automatic clips of three, four, five hundred and one thousand bullets.  This is insane and you are advocating this insanity.  I can no longer be your supporter.  I have lost all faith in your leadership.
