Let's face it, this whole background check "debate" is shear lunacy, and the press is afraid to be honest about the irresponsible position Republicans are taking on this easy extremely popular regulation. We have to stop pretending they're making any sense.
No speeches here, just a frustration I feel when I see story headlines and pictures of Republicans holding up a bill that's already in practice for gun dealers. If they're serious, they would be trying to bring back machine guns and sawed off shotguns too.
The Republican Party is dysfunctional and is proving over and over again that "stupid," as Gov. Bobby Jindahl warned, is the best way to describe their actions.
