It is a crime to abuse animals and even to stand by and watch them being abused or neglected, but not a federal crime. What is a serious crime is that there is a bill quickly proposed after one publicized, terrible abuse but there is no movement on reasonable gun control laws. Get your priorities straight! Outlaw assault weapons, make guns at least as difficult to obtain as Sudafed, and protect our kids, families, friends. It’s enough and time to do something. Thank you.
