Senate Rejects Gun Bill: Hollywood Stars Furiously Respond

Filed under: PolitikTwitter

obama biden nra gun bill

Seriously… does 90% really mean nothing to them??

After the overwhelming masses supported a modest gun bill to ensure stricter background checks for the purchase of firearms, the Senate cowered and DENIED the bill.

Blasted for their fear of the NRA, every single one of those Senators who voted 'no' has been called out for their "cowardice" by Gabby Giffords and countless others.

When President Obama said it was a shameful day in Washington, he wasn't kidding!

Everyone — well, 90% of everyone in America — is FURIOUS right now.

Check out how the stars are responding …AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Gabby Giffords BLASTS The Senators Who Voted Against Gun Bill; Calls Them All Cowards!

Filed under: Politik

obama gabby giffords nra gun bill

President Obama called it a shameful day in Washington when the Senate voted against a modest gun bill that would increase the level of background checks needed to purchase firearms.

Even though 90% of the American people supported it, the Senate DENIED the bill that could prevent future acts of horror and massacres. They DENIED 90% of the nation they work for!!!

And needless to say, survivor Gabby Giffords is none too pleased about it either!

In a brutally honest piece she wrote into the New York Times, she calls the "cowards" out:

President Obama Angrily Declares This A 'Shameful Day In Washington' After Senate Denies Gun Bill!

Filed under: Legal MattersPolitikBarack ObamaGun Show

president obama angry speech guns background check legislation failed us senate nra

Whoa! Our Commander-in-Chief is PISSED!

President Barack Obama spoke to the nation from the White House Rose Garden just minutes ago, but there was nothing rosy about his words or demeanor!

The U.S. Senate rejected gun legislation this afternoon that 90% of the American people supported and the Prez is FUMING mad!!!

The Manchin-Toomey bill was a modest proposal to amp up background checks at gun shows and on the internet, but the vote failed 54-46.

In what was very far from a concession speech, Mr. Obama assured his country that he would continue fighting against the wreckless sale of firearms and that this miscarriage of democracy should not be forgotten by the voters come Congressional re-election time!

Unafraid to point fingers, he says the gun lobby "willfully lied" to the American people and he shamed

Ashley Judd Secretly Attacked By Senator Mitch McConnell!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooPolitikAshley Judd

ashley judd attacked senator mitch mcconnell

Whoa! We're not sure how Mother Jones got these candid recordings of Mitch McConnell and his staff, but one thing is clear- they were NOT planning to fight fair against Ashley Judd!

The Double Jeopardy star, who was briefly considering running against the Kentucky Senator, was the target of what's called an "opposition research" meeting- basically, what used to be called digging up dirt and slinging mud!

In the recording, McConnell's staff reads excerpts from Ashley's memoir and listen to recordings of her speaking, trying to find every little thing she's ever done wrong they can use against her.

At one point, they listen to her talk about her religious views, in which she says:

And we were sooo looking forward to seeing her in cleavage-flaunting power suits, too!

Ashley Judd broke the hearts of just about everyone in Kentucky this afternoon as she announced she will not be running for U.S. Senate!

The 44-year-old actress delivered the disappointing news via Twitter, promising that she'd continue to fight the good fight, but that right now wasn't the right time for her to make her run.

She admitted
