Unfortunately, many Members of Congress appear to be Kowtowing to Wayne LaPierre and the NRA. Shouldn’t our Senators and Congressmen be doing “The People’s Will”, rather than that of the Gun Lobby?
Our Country’s long tradition has been filled with similar traumatic ASSASSINATIONS. In more recent years, we have witnessed attacks in: Columbine; Virginia Tech; Aurora; Clackamas and, now, Newtown. And, it is truly tragic that these tragedies can generally be referred to in One-Word. Just say Columbine or Aurora, and you don’t need to fill in the specific location. More so, it’s a troubling state of mind. It’s kind of like remembering where you were–when JFK was assassinated or Neil Armstrong stepped on the Moon. THIS IS TRULY SAD!
Such an attack on an Elementary School, where most of those killed were between age five and ten, is extremely disturbing. Any death is totally awful. But, also, think of the trauma that the classmates and students of the diseased will carry with them for the rest of their lives.
It is time to Call, Write or Email your “Representatives” (notice the quotes) in Washington and tell them to “Abandon the Gun Lobby–and Join the Life Movement”. Many Gun-Owners will join you!
