Glad Durbin, Kirk said yes on gun vote

I am appalled that the Senate voted against expanded background checks which is the very minimum measure that our country should enact to protect our families and communities.

The 45 senators who voted against this legislation are cowards who clearly only care about their own agendas and not the American people -- who have overwhelmingly shown that this legislation is what they want.

I am a mother who demands action and I will go to the polls at the next election to support those who favor common sense gun laws. I am lucky that I live in Illinois and that my two senators voted yes.
