What I don't get is when she says about the Senators heard from their constituents (who she says supported the bill), but yet voted against it because of the power of the NRA?
Those Senators voted against it because they were probably getting huge numbers of calls from people telling them not to vote for it (i.e. their constituents---and people who call are people who vote). If their constituents were all really saying, "Yes, go ahead, vote for this bill, we don't mind at all!" I think they would have.
