Money and power
Like The National Rifle Association, many parts of the entertainment industry and the legislative body are driven by money and power.
It does not seem to matter in these modern times the damage all are causing on our civilization. The long arms of the NRA are more powerful than the Presidency, 90 percent of the American people, and those leaders in Washington that want sensible gun control.
It seems the government is no longer for the people, it is for the NRA.
The "gun control bill" failed in the Senate on April 17.
This was a slap in the face to all the parents that have lost children in gun violence, and those that survived senseless shootings.
The shame in the failure to put forward a reasonable "gun control bill" in the Senate exist in the votes made by those senators that are more concerned about the NRA than the American people.
