People have been asking the government to “do something.” That almost sounds like we are clueless, like we have no idea how we could deal with gun violence in America. Like we are little kids, asking daddy to pretty please _do something, do anything_.
There are currently 2 life-saving bills that have passed the House of Rep., but are waiting for @senatemajldr & his Senate to bring up for a vote, & pass.
What are those?
The first is close the background checks loophole.

(I'm almost done, I promise)
So to the United States Senators blocking these life-saving measures: We are not clueless. And we know you are not as well. We know you saw how the House passed these laws. We know you know what’s in them.
If you are not a US Senator and you are reading this, here’s what YOU can do now: Text the word CHECKS to 644-33. Tell your Senator what you know she or he can do right now.
