Rob Hawkins: No respect

April 20, 2013 

No respect

It is most disappointing that our Sen. Richard Burr and many other Republicans have so little respect for the lives and families of the children of Sandy Hook Elementary School as to vote against a bipartisan bill to require more widespread background checks on gun buyers.

They should have had the guts to resist the unhealthy power of the gun lobby, but they didn’t.

What a sad, sad day!
