(Note to my Readers. Sorry if you are receiving this twice. It was posted improperly yesterday. I had hoped to post my usual, overly long blog yesterday, but it didn’t seem appropriate with America in mourning. I will re-post that blog by the end of the week.)
Right to the point!
Could not agree with you more, Jack!
What specifically would you propose we do, and how given the current political environment, would you propose we get anything done???
Good question. Only Congress and the President can do something. That’s a pretty weak link, I know. The NRA organizers, not necessarily the members, will do all they can to stop it. And Democrats will have to show some spine Still I understand it will be blocked by either the Republicans or the President.
Maybe, just maybe, when the tragedy gets worse, God forbid, maybe then people in both parties will tell their elected leaders that assault weapons need to be banned. Even that won’t stop all carnage, of course, but if it prevents more deaths, at least it will be something.
I just signed up with Swing Left to take action. The first thing I will do is to send letters to encourage people to register to vote.
You will always be my favorite activist because you know how important it is to not just talk, but to follow through on your convictions. As a side note, I hope the Attorneys General in America and Congress follow up on The former president’s CONVICTIONS once he is no longer in office.
It’s the video games and violent movies and TV shows we watch each and every day. We are now desensitized. It is scientifically proven. Hollywood and the gaming companies need to make changes. And, we need to take ownwership in participating. Add mental illness and the social media culture of simulateously being ananomous and visible to everybody and this is the result.
Thanks, Cynthia. It’s amazing to me that there isn’t a ban of weapons of mass destruction. These are armaments that should only be used in war.
