Now is the time to talk about gun control. NOW. The answer to guns is NOT more guns. That’s a lie propagated by people who think their right to gun ownership is more important than anyone else’s right to live. Including small children.
I’m not saying get rid of guns. Except assault rifles, which are really just for killing. I’m saying legislate them.
The government has to stop bowing to the NRA. We have to stop insisting on fighting fire with fire. It doesn’t work.
A few things we can do:
-write our congressmen.
-sign this petition to the White House to introduce legislation immediately.
A few thoughts from twitter:
-”Now is not the time to talk about gun control. Yesterday was.” – Neal Brennan
-”If laws controlled guns the way the NRA controls politicians, the US would be the safest country in the world.” – Andy Borowitz
-”One guy tries to use a shoe bomb = Everyone at the airport takes their shoes off. 31 school shootings since Columbine = no changes.” -Joshua DeRosa
You can disagree with me. You can call me stupid. It won’t change my mind. I’m off to send some emails.
