An overwhelming 90 percent of Americans support comprehensive background checks for gun purchases. To the vast majority of the country on both sides of the aisle it makes complete sense: Everyone should be subjected to a background check before purchasing a gun so that the mentally ill and criminals have a harder time getting their hands on lethal weapons.
So when the U.S. Senate defeated the bipartisan gun legislation’s background check amendment for many it was infuriating. If you’re one of those individuals struggling to cope with the news, you’re not alone.
