Day after mass shooting, Rubio, Cruz, Paul, Graham vote against blocking terror suspects from buying guns, universal background checks

In the wake of yet another mass shooting, Republicans in the Senate had a chance to heed the American people’s call for commonsense gun reforms and vote to make this country a safer place for our families.

They rejected it.

Twenty-four hours after one of the worst mass shootings this country has ever seen – and possibly an act of terrorism – presidential hopefuls Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, and Lindsey Graham voted against legislation that could prevent suspected terrorists from purchasing guns.

They didn’t stop there.

They also voted against legislation that would strengthen background checks for gun purchases and help keep guns out of the wrong hands.

And contrary to their calls for action on mental health, the legislation being debated would repeal the Affordable Care Act, a law that expands access to mental health care.

“We’ve become accustomed to inaction from Republicans on this issue, but tonight’s vote was a slap in the face to those impacted by gun violence and all Americans who demand responsive action from their leaders. Shame on them for ignoring the pleas from their constituents who agree that enough is enough.” –Kaylie Hanson, DNC spokeswoman
