...for our government to grow some and stand up to the NRA? Why does the NRA have such a stranglehold on Washington? How much money is lining the pockets of these representatives that we're paying to be our voices, our collective voices, not just the voice of the people who have the most money and scream the loudest and fill us with fear? Shame on them. Shame on all of them for not protecting us from assault rifles and bullets that have no place in civil society. Shame on them for keeping suspected terrorists off planes but letting them buy guns. Shame on them all. How many Orlandos and Sandy Hooks and Columbines and Aurora theaters and San Bernardinos and Charleston churches and Fort Hoods and Virginia Techs and on and on and on (if you want to get really sad and angry and outraged and feel totally helpless, go here: http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2012/12/mass-shootings-mother-jones-full-data) Can't they understand that I also have the right to NOT carry a gun? We are a great country. Where are our great leaders and thinkers? Our Founding Fathers must be ruing the day....what will it take?
