LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Several groups who want to make it more difficult to buy guns took their case to one of the country's most powerful senators.
"When you have a senator that does not allow a discussion on public safety, I think that we should vote Senator McConnell out and replace him with someone who will represent Kentucky," says Rick Cales, with MoveOn.org.
You could say senator U.S. Senator and Minority leader Mitch McConnell is in the cross hairs of demonstrators, and they didn't biting their tongues.
The protesters held signs outside Senator McConnell's office in the federal courthouse and accused him of blocking a bill that would have expanded background checks for gun sales.
James McMillin is with Louisville's Peace Action Community and says, "He [McConnell] has filibustered, he and Senator Paul, have filibustered this issue and it's time to allow all of the senators to have a simple vote."
McConnell is not in town this week, however, his office released a statement saying: "President Obama's allies have been attacking Sen. McConnell on this issue for months, but his support for Kentuckians' Second Amendment rights will not waver."
Sheriff Rick Clemons of Grayson county says, "I hate the thought of a homeowner, or a resident or a farmer or whoever needing help and not being able to protect themselves."
Sheriff Clemons has sworn to uphold the law, but he does not believe expanding background checks save lives, as this sign says, or make his job any easier.
"We have to all be responsible adults for the actions that we take...and just because we do a stiffer background check, that's not always going to keep the weapon out of the bad person's hands," says Clemons
Meanwhile, after Monday's protest, the group took a petition with 12-hundred signatures to McConnell's office. Demanding he support what they call "sensible gun reform."
"It's very sensible legislation but yet our senator will allow a vote," says McMillian.
