Kim Kardashian West took to Twitter to blast the Senate for rejecting several gun control measures in the wake of the mass shooting at Pulse nightclub in Orlando.
On Monday, the Senate failed to pass a single piece of legislation pertaining to gun control.One measure would have closed the ‘gun show loophole/ by extending the background check requirement to people looking to buy firearms at shows and on the internet.
Another measure would have blocked the sale of guns to people on a terrorist watch list for 72 hours while the government tries to prove, via the court system, that the person is a terrorist threat.
A third proposal would have barred anyone on a terrorist watch list from buying a gun.
A fourth would have increased the resources available to prosecutors for violators of gun laws.
The Senate let each provision fail, even after 49 people were killed last week in the worst mass shooting in United States history.
Kudos to Kim for speaking out and using her platform for a cause!
