I am very sorry that her husband was killed, but again, then as now, a background check with a 15 day waiting period didn’t stop this mass shooting. He (the shooter) was a legal gun owner. There is nothing that further gun control would have done to prevent this that wouldn’t have also negatively impacted millions of legal gun owners who would never think of committing a crime such as this.
It is a good thing she is leaving Congress. No one should be elected and re-elected on essentially one issue, and no one should be allowed to make a career of being in Congress. I’m all for term limits like on the presidency; if lawmakers knew they were only there for a limited time, perhaps they would spend more time serving the people who voted them into office rather than the lobbyists for mega-corporations. Then again, maybe I’m just too much of an idealist.
Anyway, good riddance. I’m sure she’s a lovely person, but enough already.
