After the massacre in Orlando, the worst mass shooting in this country's history, the Republicans again ignored the will of the people and refused to ban terrorists from having free access to guns.
Congressional Democrats from both houses decided to draw the line and stand up for our rights and our lives by conducting a sit in on the floor of the House of Representatives until there was a vote on passing even the most reasonable of gun laws.
Republicans, led by Lyin' Paul Ryan, toed the line for their masters at the NRA by trying to shut down the sit in. First, the fascist Ryan tried to shut down the live feeds to the House so that the American people would be left in the dark about what was happening.
Then, again led by Ryan, these lapdogs and bootlickers of the NRA tried to stop the sit in by holding a vote to override a veto by President Barack Obama on a bill that would have made it even easier for capital vultures to exploit people. The Democrats held firm and the override failed. Ryan then scurried off with his tail between his legs in shame.
Wisconsin Republicans are no more respectable than their national counterparts.
Republican Representative Bob Gannon, (R-(Gun)Slinger, wants to introduce a bill that would make a private business that banned guns from their premises if a lawbreaker brings in a gun and shoots someone in their store. His rationale for this bill is even more unbelievable:
A state lawmaker wants businesses that ban guns to be held strictly liable for any gun-related injury that might occur in their premises, and to pay triple damages.Yeah, because terrorists typically target the local grocery store or convenience store.
The "Disarmed Citizen Compensation Act" is the brainchild of Rep. Bob Gannon (R-Slinger).
"This bill will give the citizens of Wisconsin a better chance of defending themselves and their loved ones against this scourge of terrorist activity," Gannon said in a news release.
Gawd, these people are so enthralled with their checks from the NRA and their phallic symbols that they have thrown all common sense out the window to be able to live with themselves.
