#Enough 59 dead. Hundreds injured. So much more information yet to come. I will be blogging about this when I am less exhausted and less angry about what just happened in America. There is no excuse. There is no reason for this. There is no common sense. Congress has no backbone. The gun lobby is an insane extremist organization that deceives the public about the risks of guns. Not everyone should be able to buy a gun. Some people are too dangerous for guns. Weapons of war should not be available to just anyone. All guns should have a background check. Stronger gun laws WOULD prevent some of the shootings. More guns have not and do not make us safer. Someone with a gun could have done nothing to save lives in this shooting. American gun laws are very lax. The American gun culture is totally out of whack. The second amendment does not mean this. We all have a right to be safe in our homes, at concerts, in schools, malls, nightclubs.
And Congress wants to act to loosen regulations about gun silencers this week.
Where is common sense?
I mourn the victims and mourn with their families. We all have PTSD. The 2 deadliest shootings in the country happened in the last 2 years. When is the next one? What will we do? Nothing is not an option. It never was. Demand action. Thoughts and prayers are nice but we need much much more than that.
Vigils occurring all over the country- again. #Enough.
We are better than this.
