U.S. Senator Ron Johnson, a Wisconsin Republican who can ALWAYS be counted on to be on the wrong side of history, voted against the two moderate gun control measures which were before the Senate this week. His colleague, Democratic Senator Tammy Baldwin, voted in support of them.
Gabrielle Giffords, the former Congresswoman and survivor of gun violence, wrote a scathing op-ed in the New York Times today about the Senate’s cave-in to the National Rifle Association. Check it out – it’s really powerful.
Sen. Ron Johnson, elected in 2010, is proving himself to be an evil, conscienceless creep, allied with every reactionary interest known to humankind and the plant and animal kingdoms. Please join me in contacting his Senate offices to express your disapproval of his latest outrage. Here is my letter to him followed by his contact info. It doesn’t take much to make your point. He needs serious pushback on this. Please do make your opinion known!
Dear Senator Johnson,
Sen. Ron Johnson's Milwaukee Office
Your votes against reasonable gun control measures this week are the latest in a string of votes which indicate your priorities are really out of whack with the people on Main Street and that you care little about the safety of your fellow Americans. You should be ashamed of yourself.
I will be joining with hundreds of thousands of Wisconsinites in the next few years – especially Wisconsin women – to ensure that you become known to history as "One Term" Ron Johnson.
