Senate Blows Background Checks Off; President Obama Gets Pissed

The Senate failed to pass a background check bill approved by nearly 90 percent of Americans. President Obama called it a "shameful day for Washington" and urged citizens to make their feelings known at the voting booth. He also said the gun lobby willfully lied about the bill to make sure it didn't pass. Oddly enough, Fox News only covered his speech for 17 seconds. Looks like Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon was one of the dopes who believed the misinformation. BTW, here are the Twitter handles of the Senators who voted against it. 

Meanwhile, Kansas passed the most pro-second amendment law in the country.

This picture pretty much summed up the mood from everyone outside of Congress.
