5. Wonderful news, she! And, it's not over.. that was just the first round

as the President said after it went down in the Senate.



http://www.barackobama.com/news/entry/tell-congress-we-demand-a-vote/

The President said it best: "Ultimately if this effort is to succeed it's going to require the help of the American people -- it's going to require all of you. If we're going to change things, it's going to take a wave of Americans -- mothers and fathers, daughters and sons, pastors, law enforcement, mental health professionals -- and, yes, gun owners -- standing up and saying 'enough' on behalf of our kids."

thank you, she!

6. Oh thanks for that Quote, from the President!

As the Vice President's Chief of Staff, I'm going to do everything I can to ensure we run a process that includes perspectives from all sides of the issue, which is why I wanted to respond to your petition myself. Two decades ago, as domestic policy adviser in the Clinton White House, I first worked with Joe Biden as he fought to enact the Crime Bill, the assault weapons ban, and the Brady Bill. I will never forget what a key role the voices of concerned citizens like you played in that vital process.


Yes we can Cha, so many people with one voice.

9. And just look how much good it did.

If 90% of Americans support something and Congress still doesn't do what the American people want, it gives me little hope that we have a Government "of the people, by the people and for the people".

13. So first it was we deserve a vote

 

Then when the vote didn't go the way many wanted it turned into a petition demanding congress do something, which they won't because the reps control congress. When that fails, then what?
