Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) April 22, 2013
GunControlVote.com is delighted to announce that the voting both for and against gun control has reached new heights. The website provides an open forum for those who have strong opinions on the gun control issue and voting has recently gone well over the 3,000 vote mark.
Those on both sides of the issue have been very verbal these past nine months due to the Sandy Hook School Shootings last December and the Colorado movie shootings in July of 2012. Both shootings were pulled off by mentally unstable young men who had been able to legally purchase huge quantities of guns and ammunition.
Supporters of the Second Amendment “Right to Bear Arms” have been very verbal concerning gun control, but president Obama encouraged lawmakers to eliminate the background check loopholes. Though the president fervently supported passing the bill and even gave a speech last month encouraging lawmakers to pass it, the bill still failed to pass this week. Many experts have observed that the NRA is just too powerful an organization and that Obama’s presidency has been weak in some areas.
After the bill failed, the president gave an impassioned speech saying how disappointed he was, using the words, “Shame on us”. Most surveys showed that approximately 90% of all Americans supported strengthening the background checks to make it harder for criminals to buy guns. Even with this much support, the bill still failed by a small margin of 45 votes.
As gun violence continues, Americans will likely carry on their heated debates but in the end, the NRA may have the last say. Many of the families who lost children in the Sandy Hook School shootings have come forward to speak out for better gun control laws and to remind Americans not to forget about those who have been lost to gun violence.
Voting at the GunControlVote.com website is completely free and the site does not take sides on the issues. Their open gun control forum is free to use and simply requires that you register at the site. Supporters of both sides of the argument can purchase tee-shirts, lapel pins and bumper stickers on the website. The site gives you real-time results of the latest voting numbers and encourages all Americans to make their voice heard.
GunControlVote.com provides an open forum for discussion for those on both sides of the very controversial gun control topic in America. Visitors can vote on whether they believe America needs stronger gun control laws and they can also purchase products like gun lapel pins, bumper stickers and tee shirts that tell all their friends which side of the issue they support.
