Celebrities Lash Out After Senate Gun Control Vote

143616256

 

According to a Gallup poll released April 15, only four percent of Americans think gun control is the most important issue facing the country.

Reuters said in early February that 91 percent of a Quinnipiac survey that questioned 1,772 registered voters supported background checks, but a much smaller number — 56 percent — supported an assault weapon ban.

Bette Midler, for example, went ballistic.

“Today, the US SENATE VOTED AGAINST 91% OF THE COUNTRY THAT WANTS BACKGROUND CHECKS. WE ARE TAKING NAMES, MOTHERF***ERS,” she screamed.

Actress Mia Farrow declared the Second Amendment obsolete in a message on Twitter.

“2nd amendment isn’t sacred. Its obsolete. An update could specify what kinds of guns are reasonable for hunting or home protection,” she wrote.

“The Senate voted against background checks, ignoring the will of the American people. We will not stop until our voices are heard,” said Tony Bennett.

“[I] would like to smack Rand Paul dead in his mouth,” added writer Terry McMillan.

After Wednesday’s vote, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said he was pulling the measure from the Senate floor.
