AP: America Endured Horrific Week… Because Gun Control Laws Were Not Passed in Senate
The Associated Press listed a number of incidents that made this a horrific week for Americans – including the Senate not passing new gun control laws.
And, to think, there are still those who believe the mainstream media is not biased.
From the AP and Yahoo:
Moment after nail-biting moment, the events shoved us through a week that felt like an unremitting series of tragedies: Deadly bombs. Poison letters. A town shattered by a colossal explosion. A violent manhunt that paralyzed a major city, emptying streets of people and filling them with heavily armed police and piercing sirens.
Amid the chaos came an emotional Senate gun control vote that inflamed American divisions and evoked memories of the Newtown massacre. And through it all, torrential rain pushed the Mississippi River toward flood levels.
“All in all it’s been a tough week,” President Barack Obama said Friday night. “But we’ve seen the character of our country once more.”
America was rocked this week, in rare and frightening ways. We are only beginning to make sense of a series of events that moved so fast, so furiously as to almost defy attempts to figure them out. But beneath the pain, as the weekend arrived, horror was counteracted by hope.
