I am fucking angry and angry is not enough, fucking heartbroken and being heartbroken isn’t enough, fucking sick and tired of it and that’s not enough.
When is it going to stop? Together how can we affect the change? What can anyone do about it?
The answer lies in so many places. The answer is to get those that are elected to represent us out of office if they continue to do nothing. The answer is to elect people who can affect the change. The answer is constant, wholesale non-violent protest and pressure on your representatives.
Some gun control legislation makes sense.
The motive for this egregious horror does not matter. The fact that this man had what appears to have been automatic weapons is what matters.
The time IS now to talk about changes in gun control laws. Sara Huckabee Sanders is dead wrong in saying she and the president don’t think the time is now. If it’s not now when should we wait? In between this tragedy and the next one sure to come in the days, weeks, or months following?
The white gun lobby, the NRA, our elected representatives are all cowards. No one’s asking to take your right to possess a firearm away.
However, there is no reason on this earth for anyone to own an automatic in the United States or anywhere for that matter. These are solely designed to kill and maim as many HUMAN BEINGS as quickly as possible.
How many more will it take before we force the change to happen? Will it have to be more children? More senior citizens? Will it need to be larger collection of government representatives slaughtered all at once or like Arizona Representative Gabrielle Giffords and Louisiana Representative Steve Scalise?
This is an ongoing National Tragedy. It is even more tragic when you consider that our citizens don’t have a right to health care be do have a right to purchase automatic and semi-automatic weapons.
