GOP dances on the graves of the dead children of Sandy Hook

By now you've heard Senate Republicans killed the gun safety bill by filibuster today. Within minutes of the vote, even as the victims of gun violence were weeping in the gallery, Mitch McConnell posted this gloat on his facebook page:

The 90% of America who wanted better protection against allowing lethal weapons to fall into the hands of homicidal maniacs responded:

I'm too disgusted to say anything tonight and really I can't put it better than this:
"Today, the U.S. Senate decided to do the unthinkable about gun violence --- nothing at all," - Gabby Giffords
And to add insult to injury, on the same day our broken Senate refused to pass gun safety reform to protect 300million+ living Americans, they unanimously passed a resolution to pardon one man, Jack Johnson, the first African-American heavyweight boxing champ. He deserves the pardon, but he died over 50 years ago.

These are the priorities of the so-called greatest deliberative body in the world.
