Chaos In Congress: Are Guns The Issue?

House Democrats held an unprecedented “sit-in” on the House Floor last night, protesting not being able to vote on new gun restriction measures. House Republicans nearly came to blows with their counterparts, as many of them blame recent gun violence on “radical Islam.” Legislation to prohibit anyone on the “terror watch list” from purchasing a firearm was already defeated (for now) in the Senate this week, but House Democrats want their own vote on the measure. Both sides miss the real point, however. Neither will consider the real cause of the violence and therefore both sides seek harmful solutions.
