One of the U.S. senators who voted against gun control legislation Wednesday lied to a heartbroken mother whose son was killed in the Aurora, Colo., movie massacre, she says.
Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake sent Caren Teves a handwritten note last week saying he was “truly sorry” for the loss of her son and that “strengthening background checks is something we agree on.”
Then, just days later, he helped kill a bill that would do just that.
Flake was one of 46 senators who doomed the most significant piece of gun legislation in 20 years.
